Another weekend just flew past me!!! This past weekend, we did our annual Clark Family Christmas photo shoot~Every October/November we decide on a date, I figure out what the golden hour is, pick a location, and shoot away, then we end with dinner here (YUM!). I think I have a few images that are Christmas card worthy~whew!!!
As promised here are my non stamping craft projects from last weekend. I found how to make these cute Mason Jar soap dispenser's here (I had most of the items already in my craft room, except the neon food coloring, which made this project around $2.50...Score!!!). Since I love Mason jars so much...I just had to give it a try~and it is super easy to do!! (note~I spray painted the lid, and sealed with clear coat spray paint)
Then I have been wanting something for the front of my dishwasher, so my family would know WHEN the dishwasher is full of clean or dirty dishes. I am always being asked: "mom/hunny, are these clean or dirty" so viola' not an issue anymore!!! I picked up this frame at Hobby Lobby (in the section with unpainted wood crafty items) for $1.50, then I took out the glass and sprayed it twice (2 coats) with Chalkboard spray paint (which I purchased at Ace), and also sprayed the frame with white spray paint. Once everything was dry I reassembled the frame, and took off the leg thing in the back that holds the frame up. I attached some of these bad boys (Velcro), since my dishwasher is stainless steel and magnets don't work on SS (and these don't leave marks!!!), (you can always use magnetic strips if your dishwasher is magnetic). Then I used some chalkboard markers (make sure to use your 40% off coupon for them) to write "clean" and "dirty" on the front of the chalkboard. Then you are good to go~stick it to the front of the dishwasher and all you have to do is flip it! Do you think the guys will put away the clean dishes once they know when they are clean??? A girl can hope right???
*When I took the photo, my dishes were dirty, and by the looks of the photo, so is my dishwasher...guess I need to go polish it *wink*
Ok friends~have a Super-Duper Monday!!
