Made it Monday & Giveaways





Hello again all!
I have been knee deep in summer school stuff & trying enjoy my summer. Today was my first day of summer school and boy, I am TIRED! I had to come home to nap because the day was exhausting! I started by coming to school super early, THEN, finished some last minute prep stuff, started school, had some lost kids, missing names, worried parents,  I skipped snack, sent the kids home, had a curriculum planning meeting and left boxes all over my room. PHEW! I'm tired. But, I'm back to blogging so I feel a little better. =)



Here is my first Made it Monday linky!
I was inspired by this pin from Pinterest

cords 
So, I started gathering toilet paper rolls to make this perfect little storage solution for this hot mess... 
 

I was ready to start BUT the toilet paper rolls were driving me crazy! They were uneven, some were smooshed and they were all different sizes. It was not coming out like the picture! Ugh! I wandered around my house to try to figure out something else to use because the tp rolls were not cutting it.
 I found it! Soap boxes! They were perfect for fitting in cords, would be easy to fit in the box and they have a fresh scent! So I made this...  

My husband wasn't too thrilled when I emptied all of our soap boxes into a ziploc but hey, it had to look nice, right? Now everything has a place! Go over to 4th Grade Frolics to see all the other "Made it Monday" projects, it is so inspiring!

Next up? Giveaways! In my time procrastinating, I have come across so many awesome giveaways. No, seriously, AWESOME! I enter my name in so many hoping that I will get a "WINNER" email. These are the ones that are currently going on, you should enter too! But maybe not, because I really want to win! Just kidding, go ahead! 
The Hands On Teacher is going to choose 3 winners! She has items from TpT, a $15 Amazon Gift Card 
and more! 
Mrs. Stanford's Class is giving away her enitre TpT store and so much more! I can't believe how much is on that giveaway!
Coffee, Kids and Compulsive Lists is giving away 9 different things on her 100 follower giveaway.

Ok everyone, time for you to find some new blogs and enter some giveaways. Time for me to hit the sack! 

Thanks for being here! Happy Blogging!
