Monday Made it and a SHOE SALE!

It's my FIRST Monday Made it of 2014!

I have noticed a troubling trend with my summer.
I get an idea
I start working on it
I think if something else
I start working on it
I remember something I started in October
I start working on it
and the result is...

a full desktop! haunting me!
My first made it is something I actually made early this month for my students. We needed a new EOY reading assessment that matched the higher expectations of state testing. So I made one. I had planned all year on making one. And guess when I did it? the week of! no surprise there! But those little boogers worked so hard on this test! I go all out too. Go through my memorized state testing speech (because I have given it no less than 20 times!), pull desks apart and turn them backwards to prevent little fiddlers from fiddling. Big deal!
and it is not cutesy either! Because state assessors and I are not on the same page when it comes to layout! I used a basic font and all! But I love the result. You can get a better look here.

my next made it is my fav because it was a child request! Somebody saw his brother had a LEGO Store VIP card and really needed one too! Luckily Mom can remedy this! (and I cannot resist Drewbie's face)

Glitter meets Glue has the best minifigure clipart (personal use only so I wasn't comfortable sharing the cards), but here's how I made them! I do everything in powerpoint. One day I may grow up to a big girl program, but not yet! 

I googled the size of a credit card (that may get me on the watch list somewhere, but it's all good), and that's the size I made the rectangle outline. Then added text using KG Defying Gravity and KG Happy Solid fonts, plugged in and cropped a little LEGO dude, print, laminate and wa-la!
So official!
so this is not technically something I made per se, but a guy that works with hubs did! And I love shoes, so I am sharing!
I LIVE IN flats! I used to actually wear heels to work! ha! But this wide footed, bare footed Southern girl loves some flats! But I have wide feet, so I am picky! LOOK AT THESE! Hubs works in hosiery aka socks. And his contact in China created these shoes for his wife! they are socks INSIDE flats...what?!?! WHen hubs first told me about them, I was like yea whatever, Chinese people have tiny feet, they won't make a size 9...wrong! ok, his wife probably has little feet, but they do make size 9! 

aren't they awesome! And they are having a summer sale! The price isn't bad anyway, I paid almost 300$ for my teiks...but I paid 39$ for these and they are way more comfy! and washable!
you can see some great pictures on their IG too! and I'm not even getting free shoes for talking about them!
Happy Monday! I hope your week is awesome!

  4. I'm always looking for comfy flats. I have flat feet, so it is so hard to find flats that support and won't break the bank. Thank you for the review.

    Thanks! Michelle

  8. I am so with you on the long project list! I have an entire folder of "unfinished", but at least they're contained to one spot and not running rampant on my desktop! Good luck! You got this!

  9. I love flats. My feet are flat and wide so these sound perfect. I am going to go order a pair now. Thanks.

  10. OOOOO the shoes look really pretty.... thanks for sharing your find! :)

  11. Those shoes are crazy cool! Thanks for sharing! I'm also glad to know that I'm not the only person who starts a million projects only to brainstorm something new and realize I haven't finished much of anything! Whoops!
