Monday Made It + Big Giveaway Winners!

You know how you get all those catchy little commercial jingles stuck in your head? That has been happening a lot this summer seeing as I am watching way too much tv! I keep trying to come up with my own random jingles for all the fun linky parties going on in the blogosphere. I tried to make my own Five for Friday one based off the one for the Five Dollar Footlong from Subway. It went a little something like this...

Five for,
Five for Friday... 
with Doodle Bugs Teaching

Is this a good jingle? Nope. Why do I feel the need to do these crazy things? I have no clue whatsoever! However, I feel that the Monday Made-It linky party definitely needs its own too! Any ideas? I'll get working on it and let you know next week what I come up with!  


I was on a roll these past 2 weeks with themed creations. This week, sadly there is no theme as I didn't go shopping once. I had to pull out of my magical Mary Poppins bag of crafting and use what I bought last summer. But have no fear! I will try and work on a theme again for next week! Maybe I will play guess the crafting theme and there will be prizes involved! That sounds like fun don't you agree?

As always, I'm linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics to share my Monday Made It creations this week! 

Here's the random hodge podge of crafting that I was up to a couple of hours ago this weekend. 


This was super easy to make! Buy a 16 cent tile at Home Depot, wrap it in washi tape, modge podge a fun graphic on top, seal with a top coat of modge podge, glue felt on the bottom so you don't scratch your table, bada bing bada boom all done!


Sticking with my one true love, washi tape are these adorable pointers! Once again a really simple creation that even I couldn't mess up! You take a tongue depressor popsicle stick and cover it in one strip of washi tape. Then you seal it with modge podge and stick a button at the end. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! 


These glitter clothespins that have been floating all around Pinterest and I just had to make! Luckily I had glitter and clothespins that I bought last summer in my magical bag so this was just meant to be! This was the easiest craft ever! Brush a layer of modge podge onto the clothespin, sprinkle on glitter, seal with a top coat of glitter. Easy as 1, 2, 3!


While at Lowes last weekend, I snagged these free paint swatch books. I wasn't sure what to make with it but then it hit me. All I did was tear out all the extra pages leaving just the paint chip samples. Then I took some animal stickers and added a random number from 1-10 to each paint chip. Then on the back I wrote the corresponding numeral and number word. This is a simple activity that the kids can use to practice one to one correspondence. I think it turned out quite cute! 

I think I am really getting the hang of this Monday Made It thing! These crafts keep getting better and better each week! I can't wait to see what's up my sleeve next week! 


Finally, the moment you've maybe all been waiting for! My 500 follower giveaway winners!

  11. Love the Washi Tape coaster & reading pointers. I had reading pointers with googly eyes, but the eyes keep falling off, the buttons look great. It seems like they may stay on better since they're smaller. Thanks so much for sharing these.


  12. How cute are those coasters! Full confession: I have never in my life used mod podge. It seems like that will end soon!
