I wish I could start everyday with forgiveness in this way, 'cause by the end of the day, I'm sure I'll need it.Annie is the "permanent" kitchen helper and she wants to letter on the sink front, D.Y.O.D., or do your own dishes. So cool, right? We just haven't gotten to it yet.
Another fun thing to do in the kitchen is write on the table. A friend of mine told a story of two professors who put white board on the entire surface of their dining room table so they could work and make notes on it while the kids drew pictures. Great idea - and our tabletop was already spray coated in white and makes a perfect wipe-off surface. Who'd a thunk it?
And last but not least, who can resist magnet words.
Okay that wasn't the last thing... I am the one who spent days deliberating over what to put in the void left by the jumbo-size (eye candy) calendar which I did not want to purchase again. I had two old pictures that I decided to paint...
and stencil... (these are the same stencils I used for the pocket organizer) We thought about prayers and sayings and funny quotes, but ended up with simple lists:
I should redo the a's on the first one... but it doesn't have to be perfect, right? I also thought about replacing the switch plate, but I like the patina that the copper (?) has gotten over the last 50? years...so it's staying. Maybe we'll find a way to write on that surface too! Write on!
