Made it Monday...

I'm so excited ladies! It's my first linky party!! Hope I'm doing this right...

So I've been sitting back for weeks watching all of your overachievers produce adorable homemade goodies while I attempt to resist the urge to learn how to pin things on pinterest. This morning when I rolled out of bed, I realized today was Monday (funny how summer time throws me off so much. The other day somebody asked me what day of the week it was. I said, "July.") and I was going to make something! After milling around Wal-Mart and Michael's for HOURS, I remembered the "read" signs so many of you had made. So, that's what I choose. I bought paint, brushes, glitter, wooden circles and band aids (just in case) and got to work! I even used my husband's saw... all by myself! After a lot of squinting and bending over and wiping, this is my finished product!

I can't wait to hang it in my room! BTW as I was trying to figure out how to join a linky party, I found even more projects that I want to do!! I wonder how long Michael's is open...

Lastly, you should definitely stop by Rowdy in Room 300. She made those adorable burlap signs to hand on her door. If you're not crafty to attempt one yourself (like me), then enter her giveaway! She's giving away 2 personalized signs!! Good luck!

Best wishes,

  3. I love the colors on your sign. I think it turned out great. Thanks for sharing.

    My hubster teaches middle school also.

  4. I meant to say my hubster teaches middle school and except for the bow I will make one of these for him, cause those colors won't be too "girls".
