Picture Frame Dry Erase Board





I have been trying to find a dry erase board to put on my fridge door for months. The little cheap ones don't have flat back so they slide off the fridge. So after some brainstorming I remembered dry erase markers work on glass the same way they do dry erase boards.. So this is what I came up with.

Supplies:
-picture frame ($1)
-6 magnet strips (1)
-fabric (on hand)
-double sided tape (on hand)
Open up your dollar store frame- whatever size you want.

Flip it over and rip off the little holder. They come off very easy, just wiggle it back and forth.
Unwrap your magnets. Break them apart.

Evenly space the around the back edges of the frame. Now, take out the back of the frame and over with fabric. I used double sided tape and pulled the fabric tight on all sides. Put it all back together. And you get this little beauty...
I'm really happy with how this turned out. I'm especially happy it only took about 10 minutes :)

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

One Month to love book review

This book is divided into 30 short chapters that cover all different aspects of relationships in your life. Some people are more easy to love than others, and this definitely helps with the difficulties involved in some people. Some things in this book are very predictable. Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
