Here is what I have been up to this week. You know since I can't shut my brain off it seems like there is always a project looming.
Taken from The Pleated Poppy
I loved her rules, and I changed nothing. Only the way I made it. I used a blank canvas, scrapbook paper, spray adhesive, ribbon, buttons, flowers, and my own copy of the rules.
This took me about 10 minutes. I used spray adhesive to attach the paper.
Typed up my(her) rules, and attached with spray adhesive.
Modge Podge over the top
Add the embellishments with a little hot glue.
Sit on an easel.
Here is what I typed up, if you would like to use it feel free.
Thanks to Lindsey at the pleated poppy for such great rules.
This nice little Chalkboard on the front of my bar.
It once looked like this, and hung in my laundry room.
I added some chalkboard paint to the metal, and wa-la.
We no longer have room for our easel. So this is my alternative for now.
Now, I have a bare wall but...
I have a great idea. So stay tuned.
I plan to update them each year. It is really cool to see how they have changed.
I finally did one for Tessa.
Plastic ware/Readily accessible
I am tired of my kids making messes, not using napkins, and asking me for a cup.
This is what a lower pantry shelf now looks like.
My kids are now capable of helping themselves, and doing it with manners.
I love these for Tessa's legs. She can wear skirts, and I don't have to take tights off each time I change her diaper.
I bought these beauties at Target. They range from $10-$15.
After I purchased some, I found thistutorial.
Now, I am making them.
I used knee-high socks from Target. (Found in the Women's sock section)
Last but not least:
Here is a little pile of Projects I hope to get to:
...and one last little project. Mailing that giant sized candy bar to the luck winner.(winners)
I appreciate all your comments, and support in mothering. I am grateful for such great friends who help remind me that sometimes people just don't know what to say.
I picked two winners:
A funny one: Caitlyn Burchfield her response was, ""These are a handful? I left the other six at home today."
A kind one(to be a good example for my children): Heidi Parson, her response was, "Hands Full Now, Heart Full Later” (Heidi please email me your address)
Both of you will be receiving a King sized Candy bar of your choice. Email me your favorite.
