Note To Myself: School Is Almost Over!

It is offically the last week of school!! I woke up the boys this morning telling them, "It's your last Monday of school!" I thought they'd be more excited, but maybe it was because they stayed up too late last night.

Friday is the last day of school. It is also a half day and this makes no sense to me. Why make the kids go for 3 hours? And Loquacious will graduate Kindergarten the night before, but he still needs to go the next day.

I'll just deal with it.

I started thinking a couple of months ago about projects to make for our upcoming RS craft day. It's called Super Saturday and I used to think it was because it was an all day event that let the ladies of the ward come together and make cute stuff and get away from the kids be with other grown ups. You know, "How Super is that!" But now that I'm one of the coordinaters, I'm finding that "Super" to actually mean "Super-anxious-I-don't-know-what-to-do". In coming up with projects for these ladies to choose from, I thought about some super easy memo boards I had seen on some messages boards. And I killed three birds by making it one of my display items and raffle prizes at my open house.

It is simply a picture frame, an 11x14 in this case, with a scrapbook layout under the glass instead of a picture. The pen is a dry erase marker.

After I created the first one and got it down, I quickly made another one, then realized these colors don't go with anything in my house! But I think I have thought of a home for it...so Ashley, do you have room in your kitchen for this?

  2. I would love to know how much you charged the ladies to make it and where you found your supplies. I am the RS activities chair and we're planning a super-sat for November. This is a great idea. Thanks!!! radene@gmail.com
