All of those things have taken up a lot of my time, so the cutesy things really haven't come to the forefront of my Things To Do List. But it's time for Monday Made it with 4th Grade Frolics, and I just love linking up, soooo...
I DID make tattle sticks (sorry, no pictures... I was ready to ROLL on Friday at 3:00!)
#1 You take those cute sticks shaped like people & decorate them as you wish.
I put magnets on the back of them & stuck them to the board in the front of the room
When a kid tattles (we've been working on tattling VS. telling), they have to take down a stick. When there are none left, they have to write their tattle down and put it in the Tattle Tom box.
But, if there are sticks left, the kids earn a warm fuzzy (pom pom) to put in the jar for giving the teacher "Warm Fuzzies" for good behavior. When the jar fills up, we earn a popcorn or popsicle party at recess :)

My jar came from Ikea, and is a little smaller. I love her label though..too cute!
It's working so far, folks... my kid are very "Fear the Tattle Stick" right now!
I've also done several projects or "made its" for the home, though... I am in redecorating mode for sure!
I'm pretty sure, by now, y'all have figured out that I LOVE Pinterest.. Well, lately, it's all about some upcycling of old stuff, and that French country look.
I've redone my bathroom, and made this. I'm in L.O.V.E!
It's an old window from the house I grew up in (which makes it ALL the more special). I painted and slightly distressed it (needs more, I see that now), and added my wooden monogram to the front. I got the monogram from Etsy. The shop is Scrappin' Plus & they make the BEST monograms, of ALL sizes. I bought 5 for gifts & they are just perfect. I've seen some that are really flimsy & these are not. Yay.
Makes me happy!
I also made this out of a an old cabinet door I found at a salvage place...
Lastly, I have a mild obsession with cotton & cotton fields. Seriously, they are one of my most favorite things, and a great part of living the south. In the fall, they are just beautiful. Anyway, I didn't really MAKE this, but I did get a giant Mason Jar for Christmas & finally figured out a great way to put it to use...
So, that's it for me today. It's time to get some shopping done & head to my parents house for a visit. I love spring break...
Head on over & link up. I can't wait to see what YOU made! :)
