My little girl is so sweet! I got a needle in the arm yesterday for vacation vaccinations, and my whole arm has been ridiculously sore...or at least I've been complaining a lot. So Juli wanted to take care of me. She gave me her "a touch of Jesus heals" craft that she made today ("I think I should give this to you every time you are sick, Mom.") drew me a list of instructions for what I can and can't do.
- "This means you can't go outside on windy days because the wind will try and move your arm."
- "This is something you have to do: sleep."
- "This means you can't set the table. But don't worry, I will do it."
- "And you should not move your arm."
Juli said she's practising for when she can be a real doctor. All evening, she was asking how she could help me, and telling me not to do the dishes because she would do them. I love that girl!
Moving on to the project fail. Over Christmas, we got a lot of adorable pictures from our friends and family. I love photo cards! And they were all on the front of our fridge.
The other day I got a little fed up with the messy look though, so I took them all off. I had a Brilliant Idea! Stashed away in the basement I had a small clipboard, and some leftover craft magnets (one of which was used to make this bottle cap magnet, which I love! I found the cap among Kevin's pile of pocket paraphernalia one day).
So I hot glued the magnets on the back of the clipboard, and clipped the pictures on. I figured I'd spray paint it or add pretty paper another day. I even used four of the nickel-sized magnets, thinking overkill was good. See, it's great!
Then I put it on the fridge.
I will either scrap the idea, or go buy some super magnets one day. Or maybe just hot glue the clipboard right to the fridge.
What do you do with your photos and cards?
