Giveaway Winner and Monday Made It-August

I have been super busy this week and I am thrilled to share what I have been doing. 

First though, I have to announce the winner of my summer giveaway! 

Congratulations Lori, I have sent you an email about how to claim your prizes! 

And now, time to link  with Tara for this week's Monday Made It of course! 

I had this giveaway for my 400 follower and Blogiversary. 
Well, when I started planning in early July, I had a little over 400, and yesterday,
 I received THIS email from Bloglovin'

Seriously? I am speechless that I "MADE IT" to 500 followers! 

And yes, I have to celebrate, but I have to get through this giveaway and the TpT sale. So be sure to stay tuned! I am trying to be creative with my giveaways, so I need some brainstorming time! 

My second "made it" is what my husband and I made for our 9th anniversary date last week. 
The 9th anniversary gift is pottery, so he took me to a ceramic place near our home and we made this bowl together. We have done this before, but this is the first time, we shared a project. 

Of course, I LOVE IT!!!! 

I teased about this product I was working on last week. It became a monster, 
but I am happy with it. 
Texas K-8 Math Standards are completely new this year. I made these cards for 6th-8th to put up daily or weekly on my agenda/objective board. 

And since it was ready, I printed and laminated mine. 
I teach 6th advanced which means I need 6th AND 7th grade TEKS. 
Then I found this to store them in. 

Tabbed by color 
Now I am organized and ready to switch out as needed. 

Another product I revamped were my skill cards
I went ahead and printed these and laminated them as well. 
I bet you can guess what I am doing next? 
Yep, it involves scissors! 

I purchased it last week and made it as well. 

It will be an instant bulletin board when I get into my classroom soon.
