Take a moment to celebrate your successes. At times, it’s all too easy to notice our shortcomings. Today, I ask that you take a moment to think about all of your successes, and give yourself permission to be proud of everything you have accomplished in your day, week, life.
I’ll admit it, I’m in love with 3” x 4” and 4” x 6” pocket products! And while I can be found using those cards for their intended purpose such as Project Life, I also adore finding new ways to use those cards outside the pocket! Today we are going to go really outside the box when thinking outside the pocket. I want to show you how I combined pocket products with some letter stickers to create a fun chore chart.
You will need:
10” x 13” frame
4” x 6” grid or lined cards
coordinating 3” x 4” cards
dry erase marker
I don’t have paper that’s large enough to fill the inside of a 10” x 13” picture frame. So I just used the back of the image that came in the frame. Thankfully it was white and matched my card palette perfectly! You could also use some poster board. Before you add your pocket cards take note of how much of the paper the frame covers.
To create my chore chart I began by finding three 3” x 4” cards to hold the headings/names. Next I grabbed three 4” x 6” grid cards. I like using grid cards because it gives me, and my boys, lines to use when writing on the chart. Then I used some letter stickers to add the titles as well as the days of the week. You could also use this process to create a menu chart, or even a basic to do list.
I have hung this fun new chore chart in my kitchen. Now all I have to do is start assigning chores!
Take a long, hot bath. At the end of a busy day, take 30 minutes to relax your weary muscles and joints, and to allow your mind to rest. Whether it's a simple soak, or over-the-top with bubbles, soft candle light and a good book, quiet your mind, be in the moment, and simply enjoy the warm waters.
Hope you have enjoyed are sharing of recipes over the last few months, I have had fun gathering and sharing them with you. This last recipe is one I make frequently and is a family favorite.I like to serve it with cheese breadsticks and a crisp green salad. (adapted from Eating Well)
