Monday Made It {July 15th}

Happy Monday!  
Last week, I was saddened by a new Monday.  Today, I'm pretty thrilled because I'm on vacation.  Kinda.  Both of my kids are away and my husband and I are "empty nesters" until Wednesday.  I'm hoping that I will use my time alone productively.  *Fingers crossed that I can share more craftiness next week.

Today, I have only one little craft to share.  But it is one that I had on my "to do" list all year long.

I use warm fuzzies as a reward system in my classroom.  You can read more about how I use them {here}.  I had that cute clear bucket all year and it wasn't all decked out until now!  Just a little hint about adhering that label to the plastic bucket:  Spray Adhesive!

I love that stuff.  I use it like crazy!  I use it in a lot of places that you would normally use a glue gun.  For example: book baskets, cubby labels, etc.

Back to the warm fuzzies....Do you use warm fuzzies, or would you like to give it a try? You can download my label by clicking on the image below :)

Have you linked up with my crafty friend, Tara?  She has cranked out a ton of fantastic stuff this summer.  I hope that I can catch up :)  Head on over and link up!


  1. Aww! I have such great memories of Warm Fuzzies from my elementary school days. I'm sure your kids love these!

    I love the ribbons on the handle!

  4. Thanks for the Warm Fuzzies sign! Your container is adorable. I never thought of using spray adhesive for my book baskets - just had one of those "why didn't I think of that" moments!

  5. Love it. Simple and cute! I've got a can of spray glue leftover from a science fair project - you've inspired me to try it before I bust out the hot glue!

  8. I love it!!!!! I use the same positive reward system, but I call my little fuzzies: "Fuzzy Peaches". I was wondering if you could let me know where you got the adorable fuzzy people clipart so I could make one that says fuzzy peaches. It has actually been on my to-do list for a while. Or if it wouldn't too much trouble, could you type Fuzzy Peaches onto your freebie for me? Let me know!

    Thank You Thank You!
