This is the bow holder I made for the girls' room back during the summer. It was really easy... I wrapped a rectangular canvas in fabric, then hot-glued on the H and circle I had cut from contrasting fabrics (I used fray-check on the edges after I cut them out--I love that stuff!). I had picked up the two wooden decorations at a craft store sometime or other, and I just used hot glue to attach them also. I finished it off with four ribbons along the bottom to keep all the hairbows organized. I was pretty pleased for the first attempt, and it has held up well so far!
My dry-erase calendar was an adaptation of something I saw on Pinterest, naturally. I made a few mistakes on this first one, and I'm planning to redo it soon. It has served its purpose well though, and I enjoy having an easily-accessible calendar in the kitchen.
This little picture started out to be a redo of the dry-erase calendar. I intended to take out the mat and use this frame to make a small calendar for work. I messed up the lines, though, and since I really liked this paper (it coordinates with some of my fall decorations), I decided to write this verse and put it up through the Thanksgiving holiday. I actually like where it hangs, so I may just keep a different seasonal phrase/verse up there all the time.
Before our vacation in September, I put together several new activities to occupy the girls in the car. Inspired by Marcia's notebooks, I made a "doodle book" for each of them to use in the car, restaurants, etc. (The notebooks are just composition books covered in mod podge and scrapbook paper, with the circle cut from an alternating print and glued on.) So far, they have been a hit! I am thinking of attaching a pen on a string so there will be no more lost pens in the car.
