(Alternate Title: Did you know you can write on glass with a dry-erase marker?)
The other day, I was feeling totally overwhelmed by my to-do list.
It was long.
And time was short.
And believe it or not, I couldn't even FIND the darn thing. I had a mental list going, but I couldn't prioritize it or choose a task to complete without seeing a hard copy. So, I did what any busy gal would do - a quick project.
A picture frame with glass (8x13 bought 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby)
Something to put in the frame like paper or fabric (I used two fabric placemats that I've had forever)
Something to hang the frame with (drill, drywall anchor and screw)
Dry erase marker
I tied a little ribbon between the two hangars on the back. I did NOT want to mess around with putting two (four) holes in the wall in exactly the right places, so this was much easier.
I taped the placemats in the frame, without cutting them to size, because heaven forbid I do anything permanent.
Tip: When choosing a backing fabric or paper, choose something LIGHT and simple. This gray ticking stripe was just too dark.
Cream, tone-on-tone striped placemat = MUCH better.
I put them on the wall right off the kitchen, leading to the stairway and bathroom, where I would see them a million times a day.
Now, I just need to come up with a great place to keep the marker. Suggestions?
