Monday Made It #2 - For Me

I am so excited to link up with Tara at Fourth Grade Frolics for Monday Made - It.

I can't wait to show you what I did, but First a little background as to why I choose and stick with the same color scheme year after year.

During my first 2 years of teaching my wonderful sister stitched me this blanket.
When she started it I was teaching Pre-K.  After that year I moved to 4th grade, but there were 2 Fourth grade teachers retiring and giving away their stuff.  In that pile I found a Mickey Mouse Cursive Alphabet (Whoo Hoo)!  I was so excited. 

The next year after having my daughter I moved to a new district and was back to Pre-K and my room had a glass door to the outside.  My mom and I found a Twin Sheet (looks like the bedspread in the following picture) and she made me a full size curtain to cover the glass door.

Over the next few years, as I moved classrooms, that curtain has been mainly a bulletin board, and is now a curtain because I have 3 rooms in my portable.  The other two windows are covered with white curtains that have primary color geometric shapes.

So with all this in mind, and my quilt being so precious to me, I have always kept my room in Primary Colors. 

So my Monday Made It is my Teacher Toolbox.  In Primary Colors.  I can't wait to put it in my room and fill it.  I will have to be patient because I can't get in my room till the middle of August.

So here is the big reveal..............

 Till next monday -----
