My Attempt to Be Organized

Well, I know that I went off on a little bit of a tangent about random things, especially the craftiness that exists on Pinterest. However, it doesn't mean that I absolutely shun the site. I mean after all, everyone and everything is so disorganized in this house, I have to do something.

So I decided to start with something that is rather easy. See, I had this dry-erase calendar thing that I purchased from Walmart. It was alright, but the week always started with Monday and to be quite frank, I became too lazy to figure out what was going on. We always had appointments added, if Richie didn't bring in the cards for the boy's appointments, then it was absolutely pointless. Plus, when it comes to hand writing, I am quite anal and the spaces to write in were just too small.

It wasn't until I saw this clever idea on Pinterest, that the wheels began spinning. This was my inspiration:

the original idea came from: Next to Heaven

And basically, I attempted to recreate the same exact thing. It isn't as fancy, but I did it none-the-less.

I purchased this collage frame from Walmart (and although their website said they didn't have it in stores, they lied) and it was cheaper than what was listed on the website. I only paid $10 for it.

Then I purchased some scrapbook pattern packs from Walmart as well. They were only $5 a piece and they have 25 different patterns (2 of each pattern), for a total of 50 pages. I got two different packages of it and I figured that would be enough for whatever craftiness I decided to get myself into. 

And it was pretty easy I must say. I just used those picture holders for those insanely happy people that are the placards for where a real photo would go, and was able to cut it out from there. So very high-tech, I know. I also threw my crummy handwriting on it to mark each of the days of the week. 

Now, I could get even more creative and write something or do something fancy above the frame thingy, but for now, this will just have to do.

It was pretty simple and I did rather enjoy it! The glass serves as a dry erase board and I can change the paper as I wish according to my mood. So I am rather pleased with it.
