Our Clean Up Crew!

Welcome back another
 Made by Me Monday!
Remember when I made THIS? It was round 3 of the Crafters Competition. Well, since summer is over I decided that my handy dandy frame needed a REdo! That's the great thing about vinyl lettering... it picks off glass fairly easily. Here's my old 60 days of summer checklist...
As sad as I was to see the summer end, I am happy that we can make another one next year with different goals to accomplish. I scraped off the summer list using a vinyl applicator (or a credit card would work) and a bit of GOO-gone...
and made a list that we have been needing around our house, a Saturday Cleaning List!
I found this cute green fabric in my craft box and decided that it would be a good background for behind the glass of my new list. I LOVED the burlap, but figured it was time for a change. I wrapped my board, just like I did for the summer list. I actually just went right on top of the burlap that I had on there before.
a little bit of hot glue does the trick!
and VIOLA!
I am REALLY excited for this to be dry erase, so we can use it every Saturday! :) When all the chores are done, we celebrate with some ice cream and wipe the board clean to start again the next Saturday. I thought about switching up the chores so it's not the same every week. But, after thinking about it, I am wanting the kids to know exactly what their jobs are and I know they will do them well. They may get tired of doing the same.chore.every.week... but that's the fun part of being a kid, right? *wink*
and when we get tired of the background, all we have to do is pick new fabric.
 I love it! 
After all, Saturday IS a special day, it's the day we get ready for Sunday!

What about printing it on the paper and putting it behind the glass, so you can save it for either future use or memories? I've been contemplating the best way to do this before I rush into it.

Amanda said...
