Monday Made It

I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics to complete my first Monday Made-it!

I have discovered a new love for Modge-Podge, scrapbook materials and clipboards!  I have been experimenting with different layouts and patterns.  I made some for my Kinder team and personalized them with thier initial.  The first one was a little rough but I got the hang of it after awhile!  Here are two of the ones I completed - front and backs.


I am not super talented with a sewing machine but I decided to wipe the dust of mine and attempt to make seat pockets.  Sew Mama Sew had awesome directions and gave you a list of what was needed.  I bought black duck fabric, zebra ribbon, polka dot fabric patterns in green, blue, red and yellow and came back home to attempt at least one.  (I chose the 4 different polka dot patterns so the chair pockets would match the table colors).  Here is one of them - I made 3 pockets one for markers, one for a folder/book and a drip glue pocket (I improvised with a tv remote and resource book for now).  I can't wait to bring it to my classroom and try them out!

We have been in our house almost a year - August 8th is one year!  Time is flying by!  Needless to say we moved in right when I was setting up my classroom and getting into the swing of a new year.  I have been collecting items with visions in mind for the walls and I finally got around to hanging them!  My next mission is to put pictures in the frames! 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Your wall frame art looks great! Nice mix!
    I've tried making the Modge Podge clipboards but always ended up w/ little bubbles underneath the paper. Any secrets?

    1. Thanks! I used to have the same problem with little bubbles! What I found works best is if you put a layer of modge podge on the clipboard itself and then lay the paper down, smoothing from the inside out. I also stick to designs where I trim the paper down so it is smaller pieces to work with. I used to use a bowl scrapper to smooth but finally broke down and bought the modge podge tools - a roller and their scrapper thingy. Best investments ever for clipboard decorating! Best of luck and thanks for stopping by!
