Monday Made It {July 1st}

Before I begin, today is my Anniversary.  18 years!  Wow.  That's hard to believe.  I couldn't find a picture of just the two of us (I'm on my new computer...holla), so this is a picture of the whole family at Sarah's Spring Formal (not wedding...the white dress probably threw you a bit).  I'm so proud of the father that my husband is to my wonderful children.  I'm a very lucky woman.

Now to the Made Its for the week.
I have a whole birthday-slew of Monday Made Its for you.   I'll start with the final "Sweet Sixteen Candy Bar" table.  This about sums up all of the Made Its...I made a lot for this party :)
Here are a few up close pictures:
I did make one thing for my classroom.  The idea {I think} came from a Monday Made It link up weeks ago.  I just don't remember who it if it was you, please email me and I'll add your name and link.  I made a memo board to hang next to my desk.  I took an old shutter that I bought from the Habitat Resale Store and cut it in half.  Then, I primed it and painted it.  Don't look too close, it's not perfect, but I didn't really care.  As a matter of a fact, I'm thinking of "distressing" it a little more with sandpaper.  Not sure yet...thoughts?

I love the bright blue color.  It will match my room beautifully.  Those two papers in the slats are just envelopes folded in half.  I think that this will work perfectly for notes, pictures and other items that usually get taped to my wall next to my desk.

So, there you have it.  I was super-duper busy all week getting ready for the birthday party.  Now it is time to focus on more classroom related items.  Well, once I get motivated again...but first...a day of relaxing and then a nice dinner celebration with the love of my life.  Mushy enough?

Have you checked out the other Monday Made Its?  I'm heading there now....see you there ;)
