First day of school! After going to back to school night yesterday, I am already feeling a little stressed. I want to be organized this year and not forget little things happening in the kidlet's classes. I thought it might be nice to have a big calendar that I can keep reminders. When I was at The Parent's house yesterday I asked them if I could have one of their old whiteboards.
I brought it home with me and broke off the edges with a hammer.
I cut some black vinyl strips for the edges with just a pair of scissors and then used a large drywall square to create a nice straight edge by cutting the excess vinyl off with a razor blade.
I was a little worried about how to make a calendar grid that was even. The Joe piped in and said,"No problem! There's an app for that!" And there is!
Not necessarily for calendars, but a spacing thing-a-ma-gig. Very cool indeed.
I drew the calendar lines with a permanent marker, but I think I may go back and make them vinyl. It's not quite as permanent as it thinks it is.
I stapled it to the wall with a pneumatic staple gun and bought some cork board squares from Wal-Mart.
I thought I'd hang the burner covers next to it.
Hopefully this will help a me to be a little more organized! I would love to be one of those mothers who's always on top of everything! If you are one of those mothers, please share your secrets!!
