Monday Made It on a Snow Day

We we're suppose to go back to school day for a work day but it snowed and it's cold so no school. I haven't done anything school related all break and it has been great. But I'm probably going to have to do something today. Maybe. Netflix, my iPad and the couch have been really good over break. I have done a couple of craft projects so I thought I would link up with Tara at Fourth Grade Frolics.
This was my inspiration from Pinterest.
It's a calendar that you keep for years. You write one thing each day and keep adding to it. I had pinned this a while ago but decided a new year was the perfect time to start it. 
I used index cards and my paper cutter to cut in half. Then I used scrapbook paper to go in between each month. I went ahead and put dates on all the cards so all I would have to do each day is write my memory of the day.
I am trying to use things I have and not buy new stuff so I got the idea to use a gift bag and cut the top off. I then decorated it with washi tape. Here's the finished product.

The other the project I completed over break was a blanket for my new niece who will be here a week from today. I am so excited to welcome her into the world!
So those are my projects for winter break. I need a new wreath for my door so I might work on that today instead of school work. Here are a few pins that have inspired me.

Only Valentine's day rather that Halloween. Red or pink rather than orange and black.
Be sure to head over to 
Fourth Grade Frolics and see everyone else's Monday made its. 


  1. That blanket is beautiful! I have one that I really need to get working on before the little one arrives in March! I always work better with pressure!

  2. That blanket is beautiful! Don't you always feel so accomplished once you've completed something from your pin boards!
    Enjoy the snow day, we have one here too!

  3. Love the Halloween wreath idea. With all the orange I have around the house it could stay up year round for this Vol fan. I was sort of repeat sort of looking forward to going back to school tomorrow. I have bus duty on Wednesday and my room is a mess.
