Made It and a Freebie!

I am linking up with Tara @ 4th Grade Frolics for another edition of...

This week I came across a Pinteresting DIY project that I just had to try out. I absolutely adore headbands especially those that are comfy and I can wear lounging or working out....and this one was absolutely free and oh so simple to create!

I had recently put together a bag of clothes to donate and just snagged a tee out of there to use pre-donation! Cut a few strips off the bottom (as pictured), tied it up, and voila. Cute right! Here is the link to my pin for more in depth instructions.

In other news, July 5th was my handsome man's birthday! He absolutely LOVES the Bears and has still never been to a game (I can see why after purchasing the tickets...yowzas!). Thus, I figured I would be every man's dream gf and get him some tickets to celebrate.

I put the gift together in this little DIY frame. (I apologize it's all Instagrammy...for some reason I didn't save the photo anywhere else...but hey if you aren't following me yet...I'd love for you to snag my name and join in the Instafun!).
I bought the frame at Kohls for 40% off and then headed over to Michaels for a few scrapbook touches (football sticker, scrapbook paper, and the adorable Bear's themed buttons). Printed off a lovely little note and hot glued the frame touches and then presented it to my man! 

(I think he liked it ;))

And for the of my kindy colleagues is doing a safari theme in her classroom this coming year and was searching for an "All About Me" type poster with this theme in both English and Spanish. I helped her out and thought I would share the creation with you all as well in case you wanted to use it in your room. It has a lot of picture spaces as it was designed with K/1 in mind. I believe she is planning on blowing it up a bit so you could do that to make the spaces bigger for your students if needed as well. Just click on the images to grab your free copy in the safari theme or I created a plain one as well!

  1. That's a really neat headband. I bet my daughter would love one like that!

    I love the safari clipart that you used for the All About Me freebie! It's very colorful and "friendly" looking if that makes sense! Sometimes clipart faces don't look like this, and for me this is definitely the style I prefer!

  2. I love the picture frame! That is a super cute way to present an event as a birthday present! How is it that I never think of things like that until someone else does it. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Cuuuute headband! Would be good for a messy hair day :) Adorbs! I just made my first sock bun creation via PInterest... couldn't be more obsessed. So glad I found your blog! I'm your newest follower. Come stop by if you get a chance!

  5. Love the picture frame and headband.


  6. Hi there! I love your all about me template! I am a French teacher and am wondering how you were able to make it (I can't seem to find the borders or word art on google docs, which I think is the format you used).

    1. Christina,

      I actually created it in Powerpoint and then uploaded it to Google Drive, which is why you are unable to locate the fonts/graphics there. I get my fonts from various online sites & stores and most of my borders I buy on Teachers Pay Teachers. Hope this helps!
