Monday Made It!

I am so excited to be participating in my VERY FIRST Monday Made It!  Every week, I've looked at everyone else's craftiness and been like "I wanna do it..."  This week-  I actually did!  OK, I tried posting this yesterday, but my internet was giving me fits!




I have a secret.  (I've never had a unifying class theme.)  Don't tell.

I have always used the colors red, blue, yellow and green for everything but I wanted something to tie it all together.  I had been toying around with a superhero or detective theme, but just didn't feel settled about it.  When I saw the zebra print ribbon in all the different colors- I knew it was destiny!  I LOVE all things animal print and they fit the color scheme I already had.  I decided to go with the theme "Let's get wild about learning!" and instantly felt at piece.  I found the ribbon at Hobby Lobby and the baskets were on clearance at Kmart!  




Until now, my book nook has been housed in a painfully eclectic group of randomness.  There was no color scheme.  No standard basket size.  Labels were any way I could get them on... it was madness.  I had to fix it. I took the ribbon and weaved it in and out of the top row of each baskets.  I played around with a lot of options, but in the end went with behind one, in front of two weave.  I used glue dots to hold the ribbon on to the basket, but I don't think it's going to hold.  I might have to break out the hot glue gun when I get to school.  


This is what my 6 year old thought the baskets should be for.


This is what I fixed for dinner!

Although making dinner in and of itself isn't Earth shattering news, I was quite excited because I have been out of town for 2 weeks and haven't been to the store!  All this came from my stockpile!
