May Made It

Happy May.  As the year winds down, it's hard to get to everything.  Isn't it?  This is exactly the reason I'm looking forward to summer and the return (hopefully) of the Monday Made Its each week.  I've missed some focus.  I've missed being crafty.  It's so hard during the school year.  So hard in fact, that the only link ups this month are made by other people.

My daughter has been pretty crafty this week!

She's my biggest helper.  Remember the clipboards?



Take a look at what she made for me for Mother's Day:

She knows me.  The best part?  She wanted me to take it to school to hang in my classroom.  So, I did.

I didn't make this other one, either.  A parent and student made it for me and delivered it today:


My nails are already purple, by the way :)

Now, next month?  Watch out, people.  Game on.

Link up with my bud, Tara:

And check out all of the other craftiness out there.

  1. Love the nail file and polish gift! Must remember that! (And I hear you about getting your craft on in the summer...I long for the days when my husband calls out, "I can hear your scissors!" Yeah, he is a light sleeper!)

  9. Aww, how cute! And the nail file and nail polish is super cute! I didn't link up either. All I'm doing these days is making a mess with piles of papers everywhere. End of the year chaos has begun!! :O)

    Have a great week!

  14. I love the clipboards your daughter made. My clipboards are so boring and I am adding that to my summer to-do list!

    Wow! Did your post get hacked or what? When I opened blogger today, I had a huge spike in views and when I tried to find the source (topblogspots.com or something like that), it took me to an x-rated site!

  18. That is such a sweet quote!! And I am with you, it seems like I have hardly any time during the year to keep up with the fun Monday Made Its! Definitely hoping to get back in the groove this summer though!! :)
