These are a few  bloggers I don't think have received this award yet, hopefully.If you have gotten this award, consider yourself REALLY LOVELY : )
 I'm going to do some research to find more bloggers who haven't gotten this award and get back to you.

Well for this week's Made it Monday I made a couple of things for my classroom and home.
# 1 ~ I made the hall pass sign that I saw on Pinterest.
I painted the canvas  to match my color scheme and then added ribbon. 
Look at the finished project above. I used Powerpoint and a free frame from The 3AM Teacher  to make the passes the kids will use and I'm going to clip them to the ribbons.

# 2 ~ I made my jobs chart. I purchased the owl classroom decor pack from Jessica @ secondgradenest.
I printed, laminated, and  was going to attach the cards to a ribbon. I noticed that my ribbon pattern goes horizontally and am trying to decide how to hang the job chart now. This picture is how I want it to look. 

When I get the class list I'll make cards for my students to put in each empty box for their assigned job.

# 3 ~ I made a chore chart for my daughter. I found this chore chart on Pinterest@ Baeza Blog and decided I wanted to make this one. I used 2 black picture frames, metal, paint markers, and ribbon to make it. 
Pinterest Inspiration
To make to magnets I used the clear river rocks and printed the jobs from Baeza Blog. I used modpodge to attach the jobs to the rocks and glued the magnets on the back. Here is my finished chore chart.

Make sure if you made something go link up to
