Monday Made It: July 20

Welcome to Monday Made It! I've missed linking up for a few weeks since I put myself on an official summer break. I really enjoy this link up, though. It's inspiring to see everyone's creativity and fun ideas. I hope that if you are a new reader of my blog, you will leave a comment with a link back to your blog!

Watermelon Basil Mojitos
Just a Wednesday night Date Night!
Recently, my fiance and I had a lovely midweek Date Night. Our original plans unfortunately got rained out, but we had a great night anyways! We tried out a new (to us) Thai restaurant, and then came home and I made some Watermelon Basil Mojitos. They were delicious! I had extra watermelon and basil that needed to be used, so I just typed those words into my Pinterest feed, and voila! The recipe is here

FREE 2nd Grade Common Core Math Quizzes-Sample

Last week, I managed to put together a FREE sample for my "Masterpiece" of 2nd Grade Math Quizzes. Hop on over to my store to check it out. The full file is half off for the rest of the summer if you like what you see!

Classroom Made It
The Door Hanger
The Process
I'm moving to a new school that has an owl mascot. So, I decided to make an owl out of burlap and in my new classroom colors. My Mom helped out while I was visiting, because I do not have a sewing machine (nor do I really know how to use one!). But other than the sewing, it was easy peasy! I'll attach a wire hanger to it when I get it to school.

    1. Burlap is so in right now! I wonder if you could use super glue, or some of that iron on tape to do the same thing? I bet Pinterest has an answer!
