Monday Made It, Must Haves, and Winners

As always, Mondays are exciting when you get to link up with Tara for Monday Made It during summer! Do you have one of those "ordinary" bells in your classroom? Me too, so of course, I had to bedazzle it! (Actually I made them for my team a couple of years ago and I never made myself one, so now is the perfect time!)
You will need:
  • bell
  • jewels (I used the 3mm ones from Michael's)
  • E6000 adhesive (very powerful stuff-be careful if you've never used it)
  • cuticle stick
 I have found the cuticle stick is great for grabbing those little rhinestones. I smear a small amount of E6000 on the bell and press the rhinestone down. This is a tedious process. If you want to make more than one, I recommend doing one a day-it takes a while plus the fumes are strong!
 Voila! The finished product! Isn't it so shiny and sparkly?
 My next Monday Made Its were actually made by buddies Amber and Tina. They had this bag embroidered for me for my birthday! They matched the font and logo from my blog exactly! I love it! But wait, there's more......
 Check out this shirt! Shut up, right??!!! The front displays a high heel!
 Here's the back! I was so excited when I opened these gifts! So clever!



Congratulations to my GRAND PRIZE WINNER: the sweet Jennifer from Mrs. Laffin's Laughings. She will win the box of goodies (below), which are my "Must Haves" and her choice of item from my TPT Store.
Also, CONGRATULATIONS to Jennifer fromThe Blessed Teacher and Hazel for winning any item from my TPT Store! Thank you to all who entered! I'm so happy to have new followers and I appreciate those of you who followed me again through Bloglovin'!
Now I get to link up with my friend Sabra for Monday Must Haves! I'm sharing the loot my grand prize winner will be receiving in the mail.
 Jennifer will receive these goodies too! They are definite MUST HAVES for me! :O)
It follows the whole theme for my classroom!

  5. Thanks so much, Joanne! I can't wait for my package to arrive. Such fun goodies!

    Your friends are so incredibly thoughtful to get those great gifts for you! I love the cute!!!

    And I also love the rhinestone bell but I will have to admire it from afar! I probably will not copy that one from you this week because adhesive and I don't mix well. :)

  9. the bell turned out very cute! I have 2 bells and theey are both already painted and i don't think their design would go with rhinestones. That's so cool about the t-shirt and bag. I love them!
