Made It Monday- The Early Bird Version

 I love being an early bird so it shouldn't be a surprise I am a doing "Made It Monday" post on Sunday. You might recognize my little project if you have been browsing through the education section on Pinterest or even on other teacher's blogs. I am teeming with excitement to share with you my version of the "My first day of __ grade" picture frame to use on the, you guessed it, first day of school!

  I found a great deal on the unfinished frame at Hobby Lobby for 40% off. The blue paint and shiny silver letters also came from Hobby Lobby. It only took a few coats to give it a nice hue. Figuring out how to get all of the letters to fit on there was a bit more challenging. I originally wanted to put, " My First Day in 1st Grade", but there was no room from "My". So the poor "My" will have to find some other bulletin board or project to call home. After placing and adjusting the words I could fit on there I hot glued it. Wha-laaa!

I am excited for first grade!

My fiancé is very kind and patient to model my "Made It Moday" project. But it is all worth it because I can't wait to see the kiddo's faces peering out and gleaming with excitement from their first day. The pictures will be a nice memento to remember our year together. I know it will happen so quickly!
