Monday Made It

-
It's Monday and you know what that means!  This week one of my close friends asked me to make her some labels for her classroom after she saw my boxes (Pictured below).
She teaches high school and wanted something simple but pretty.  I created these for her:
This is the "teacher toolbox" that got me started on my organizational journey :-)  I love having things in one spot where I can find them quickly.  My friend Viv loves craft card stock so I decided to go with "craft" colored papers.  You can see a close up of the patterns below.  I was going to make them all the same, but while I was making them, I decided to go in more of a creative route.  
Next I made her a "To Do" drawer system.  This saves me so much time!  I like to put everything here until I have time to put everything in it's place. 
She also wanted a set of weekly drawers.  I put my copies for the day inside each drawer so that everything is ready to go for each day.

I love how the whole look came together!  Can't wait to give them all to her :-)

This last item I didn't really make. I had someone else make it for me :-) I needed a new notebook with a calendar and decided to go with an Erin Condren Deluxe notebook this time. I made one last year, but I just didn't want to deal with that this time around.  Take a peek below!  It's beautiful!
I'll be using this notebook strictly for work so that I have all my meetings notes, appointments, school events etc. in one place.  I can't wait to start using it!


What have you been making?  Link up with Tara for Monday Made It and share!

  1. I really like the subtle differences you added in your friend's new drawers, especially on the weekly drawers with the pattern of fonts and frames. That teacher toolbox was the best thing to happen to me (ok maybe a slight over exaggeration, but you get the point)! I love how it keeps me so organized!

    1. I was going for a subtle thing with her since she wanted something "grown up" and pretty to have in her senior English class. The teacher toolbox was also something that changed my life! I totally agree with you :-)

  2. I'm thinking maybe I should do the daily drawers idea; I like it a lot better than the file crate I have now!

  4. Oh Oh Oh! Can you add those labels in your store? I'd be an instant buyer because they are adorable! Are they more grey or brown? My whole room is grey, yellow, and teal.

    1. Gina, these have been added to my store :-) They are a soft brown. They look super dark in the pictures for some reason, but they aren't.
