Still, I couldn't go through the ENTIRE summer without one Monday Made It... even if this does post on a Thursday. I just love Tara and I wanted her to know I was trying one more time. Trying unsuccessfully, but still trying.
In my classroom, I have a "tower" of writing materials for my students to use. It looks like this...
This summer, I decided it needed more color. Why I made that decision remains unknown (and ill-advised). The drawers held paper just as well without being adorned with Modge-Podged scrapbook paper (maybe even better?) Why couldn't I just leave it alone?
I began this project at 7:00, and it is now just past midnight. The results are not pretty. After five hours, I am only have half done. I've now decided to tackle the second section another day. Currently, the drawers are dripping with Modge Podge. (As I type, I can imagine the paper disintegrating into a soggy wrinkled mass of goo...) There is Modge Podge in every room of the house. It is on the kitchen counters, it is on the living room rug. It is in the bathtub, which now has an iridescent shine after I tried to wash off a few failed attempts on the drawers, and now I am left with the question of how to get Modge Podge out of the tub. And I just noticed that my fingernails are covered in Modge Podge--as if I painted my nails in the dark... since the "polish" extends the length of my fingers!
That's it! Step away from the Modge Podge, Kim...

I put the labels on the outside while the insides of the drawers were still saturated with my nemesis, the Podge of Modge... just so I could take a picture for you. Those places that look like vanilla ice cream? Still WET!
And now here is my solemn promise:
You can still check out some REAL crafty projects at 4th Grade Frolics. They're still there... Even if it is already Thursday!
