Chalkboard Clipboard Signs at Organize and Decorate Everything
This DIY is right up my alley since I'm a teacher. And it seems so easy. I haven't tried it yet, but I have no doubt that I can make this, and I can envision so many different ways I could use this at home and at school. All you need is a clipboard, painter's tape, chalk paint, and chalk. I loved her idea of having her children hold a clipboard with their grade in school for their first-day-of-school photos. I would like to make one that says, "________ days until Christmas/Valentine's Day/Easter/Summer/or whatever countdown I want. I can also see it as a welcome sign in my classroom. What a great idea!
3 Odd Things That Make Me Ridiculously Happy at I'm an Organizing Junkie
I like this post for two reasons. First, I've been reading OrgJunkie for a while now, and it was fun to read something personal about what she enjoys. I like when I get to read a post that helps me feel like I know the writer better. Also, I love what she did with her refrigerator. Go take a look!
This post was light-hearted and funny! The author put together 15 real personal ads from a New York newspaper that was in circulation during the 1990's. Considering that's almost how I met my husband, I found it quite fun to read these! My husband and I met online via personal ads back when it wasn't cool to meet online - before dating sites existed. You may remember a website called Excite.com circa 2001? They published personal ads much like the newspapers once did. I'm pretty sure our ads sounded nothing like these. One of them begins like this: "I'll Shoot My Dog!" What is up with that? The commentary on the ads is pretty clever!
I hope you enjoy these! Have a great week!
