Monday Made It

I'm linking up with Tara again for Monday Made It!  I am so glad she is doing this linky party because it pushes me to get at least 1 project done a week.  
This week has been busy...last weekend I was on Long Island, this weekend I was in New Hampshire...I haven't had a ton of time to work on projects.  Anyways, this week I made mail boxes.  I already had these half done when I thought I could just do file folders so for this year at lease we will use mail boxes.

I used Priority Mail Boxes and taped them together.  Then I hot glued fabric around them and added ribbon to cover the cut edges.  

I also made Writing Leads posters for fiction writing.  I've wanted to do this for a while and just never got around to it.  I think they came out cute: 
There are 8 different leads (each one is one page).  They have a short description of the lead and an example of that type taken from a children's book.  If you are interested in this, you can get it at my Teachers Notebook Store


I stopped at Michael's Today and grabbed these cute name plates (I know I'm not doing an owl theme this year but these were too cute to not buy). 

I also bought this cute alphabet puzzle...

...and these sentence strip dry erase boards...

Now I'm off to spend some time looking at everything you guys made this week!

Great job with the mailboxes! I'm notorious for buying things just because they are too cute to pass up, even if they have nothing to do with my theme or my needs! I definitely would have bought those owl name plates as well! =)
