I have a confession; I don’t like buying things second hand. Gasp. Despite that, I often peruse the local buy and sell on Facebook because I’m convinced that someday I will find a gem. The other night it happened. I found a gem! I’ve had this Dry Erase Weekly Calendar from Crafting and Quilting pinned for a while. I saw the exact same frame for sale online for $5. I sent my darling husband to pick it up, sterilized it (I hate germs. Maybe that’s why I don’t like second hand), and got to work making my own weekly organization center.
The first step was to take out the glass and spray paint the frame. I went with navy because that ties in well with our kitchen/living room.
Next I cut out 8 different 4x6 rectangles of scrapbook paper. I debated using the same paper a few times but decided to put a different colour and style in each space.
I was going to use stickers for the days of the week but didn’t have any that I liked with the frame and paper. Instead I wrote the days of the week and “to do” by hand using a brown marker.
Finally I put it all together and hung it on the wall. J and I decided to hang it between our stove and our pantry. There was just enough space and it’s right above the counter where we keep paperwork and charge our phones so it’s a logical place to keep it.
On a separate note, we had our first snowstorm of the winter this week. Remember my vegetables that I showed you here and here? Well, this is what they look like now. If you look closely you can see the wire that held up my tomato plants. We had 30 centimetres fall between Sunday night and Tuesday morning. I guess winter has arrived.
