Take It and Make It Thursday

So who make a candy bouquet this week????  Who ate enough candy to fill a candy bouquet????

It's a brand new week and I am linking up again with Cynthia from 2nd Grade Pad for

{I do have to admit that this is one of my favorite linkys ever!}

If you read my previous post you know that I am off on a new adventure next school year.  
I will be teaching an accelerated second grade class.  
{Yep, my head is still swirling!}

I will be moving to a new classroom in a pod that houses all of the second grades and am so thrilled to finally get a "big room"!  One of the former teachers painted two of the walls in the classroom a dark brown.  Hmmmm...I have a couple of brown walls in my home and I do love brown.  

But...what to do...what to do...for a classroom theme?
Well, I have decided to do a "Learning Safari" theme, but I didn't want it to be too cutesy and I really wanted to mix in some textures...burlap, raffia, etc. to give it a more homey look.  That's when I stumbled upon SchoolGirl Style's safari-themed classroom.  I have been working with that theme in mind and I found some adorable graphics on Etsy.

And...what does every teacher need?  A "to do" list...well, maybe a done "to do" list.  That is exactly what I made for today's Take It and Make It.  

I printed out a list and then put it in a frame from the dollar store.  
{I had to wrestle a little with the frame and may need to change it out eventually.}

This is what my finished product looks like:

This particular frame had a really big lip, so only one of the borders shows, but I think it will do the job.
Now, all I need is a dry erase marker to write on the glass.  Then I can just wipe it off as I finish each task!

If you'd like to make your own, you can create one yourself of pop right into my store and select one of the many themed ones I have...only $1!  {Unless you happen to catch them on sale, then they are only $.85!}
You can find this particular one here for FREE!
Happy Thursday and Happy Creating!


  1. Love the picture frame idea! I have your pirate themed list, so now all I need is a frame:) Thanks for sharing.

  2. I like this idea. I have to do lists everywhere. Maybe if I could write and erase my to-dos, I'd be more likely to complete them!


  3. Love this idea!! Goodness knows I need to make myself a list of what I need to do!! Thanks for sharing!
