Craft #1: I bought this frame 50% off at Hobby Lobby. First I drew lines on it with a permanent marker to make a calendar. I didn't love the results because it just wasn't colorful enough. Then I pinned a dry erase board made with paint chips. So I went to the hardware store and picked up some paint chips. 35 to be exact. I got home and spent like an hour trying to get the permanent marker off, with great success. I lined up the paint chips and taped them all together. (I should have done that in the first place because it is really hard to draw straight lines with a permanent marker on a piece of glass... And it was really hard to get it off when I decided I didn't like it.)
Craft #2: I added the little "I love you because" which is an idea from another pin. Eric and I take turns writing there. He only does it because I make him. Lol
Craft #3: I made little die-cut 'stickers' to mark birthdays and holidays. I used my mom's Cricut machine and then laminated them. So fun and colorful!
I love how there is extra room on the left side for writing notes and leaving sticky note shopping lists. The reason the lists are on sticky notes instead of written with dry erase marker is so I can take the lists with me.
(I really wish I was capable of taking better pictures than this. Part of the problem is our extremely dark lighting conditions.)
So do you think this should count as one craft or three? I did do all three parts on different days. I love, love, love how it turned out.
I got the ideas for this craft from:
