Up Late: The 80’s attacked and I never saw it coming

Sometimes I love being able to see the brushstrokes. Now I have to decide if others love them as well.

After a terribly short break from crafting for others, I managed to join two craft swaps. One of them I chose to do because I did see an opportunity to make something for my little girl. So this weekend I was working on chore boards for four girls. The idea is really simple. Get a cheap cookie sheets, sand it, prime it and paint it. Add a dividing line with the kiddo’s name on one side and “done” on the other. Then, get a bag of wooden disks and glue pictures of said chores to them. Add a magnet to the back of each disk, and you have a hanging chore board.

I really did not intend for this to be a rehash of my childhood. I just used the favorite colors of each girl.

Wooden disks. So many possibilities.

They are turning out AWESOME and I want to share more. Buuuut since I never share my daughter’s name, and probably shouldn’t be sharing the names of a near stranger’s brood, you get these process shots for now. But the idea came from A Spotted Pony, so if you want to see a finished board, you can see it there. I will be wrapping up another swap this week as well. That one I will share a lot of pictures because it will make a very fun tutorial share.

I am hoping the last coat of paint is dry so I can wrap these bad boys up! I do love mailing out a good swap package!
