Dry Erase Boards - so much fun

Wanted to share with you another easy and fun project to do for those on your shopping list. This year is all about a homemade Christmas for me. I have been trying to get different projects completed for the last few months. I love to craft, whether it be crocheting, stamping, sewing, making homemade goodies in the kitchen or using my wonderful embroidery machine. This idea was sparked by a very talented CTMH consultant, Tarina Holloway. She didn't list a blog address so I can't send you to see hers that made me pull out my prize
Felicity Collection papers and stamp set, which was a special offered awhile ago. These could easily be done with any papers and the Art Philosophy cartridge is great for cutting the mats like mine shown here.



 (click on any photo to see details)
These are 12 x 16 and are simple frames that I found at Michael's and Walmart for about $5. The artwork is all under the glass ( or acrylic would work too). You can buy Dry Erase pens at various locations and your picture frame becomes a dry erase board. The days of the week were stamped in chocolate using the Save The Date stamp set and the words Notes and To Do were from the stamp set which came with the Felicity papers, but any Alphabet stamp set would do.
So for under $10 you have a personal, useful and decorative gift for friends, family, co-workers, teachers any number of people on your list. I would love to know what you think.

Hi there, Jane. :-) To add your award to your blog, simply save the image as a picture onto your computer. Then, go to "design" and "add a gadget," then "picture" and upload the image from your computer. There will be a link option where you can add my blog address, if you want. But that's not important. Rewarding you is! :-) Hugs

Jane, these are wonderful! And I LOVE the Felicity paper set (I've been hoarding some of my own!) I just might have to break it out and "lift" this idea, if that's OK. Thanks for all your inspiration. You deserve the blog award from Brenda!

Well that was weird!.... It posted my comment twice! Then when I tried to delete the duplicate one, it doesn't just take the whole thing off.... it put "comment deleted by author".... go figure!
