Make a message

I have waaaaaay too many picture frames.

Yet I won't get rid of any of them.

Remember this project?



9 frames!!

And there are still too many to admit to in my basement, just sitting there.

Here is one more picture frame I took out of the stash.



This is wild man at 3 months!

How I miss that sweet baby face.



I did take that sweet picture out and made it into a dry erase message board.


With a message that I need to remind myself of everyday...many times a day.

This board will also be good for reminding the boys of things.


If the glare is too much, it says,  

Hands belong on the outside of your pants.

Ah the life with boys.

The problem is, they can't read yet.

So the board will more then likely be made to keep up with our weekly schedule.


I realized looking at the picture that it looks like on Monday that poo is on the list of to do. But that would be pool.

But a poo with a successful wipeage of thyself would be a wonderful thing in this house.

Other then that, not much going on this week.

I will be showing how I made this later on this week.

I am beat and am going to sleep.

Nite, nite.

I am posting to these parties.

ok, first, love the message board...I, too, have a lot of frames but don't want to get rid of them. I will be making one of these this week! Second, I LOVE the message about the pants...I have 3 boys, and that is sooo true! I was laughing out loud-you are too funny. Thanks for sharing!! :)

I remember when my now 29 year old sone was little! I use to say "now let go of that!" Do they ever? Probably just more discreetly!

Great idea! I'm going to copycat! Also, love the comment for little boys...I always catch myself saying, "it's not a toy!"

Nat said...

Hey, there's nothing wrong with reminding oneself to go #2. But going to the pool is waaaaay nicer. :-) Can't wait to see the tutorial!

I have a five year old son and we are so in that stage...please stop grabbing yourself...and its worse in situations where he is nervous so that means when we are out in public I have to constantly remind him his hands belong elsewhere. I am told this is just a boy thing -I just don't understand.

alicia said...

Great project! What mom can't use a dry erase board?!

Josee said...

Very neat! I've been wanting a dry erase board but couldn't find one that I liked. Yours is a great idea :)

Kaysi said...

Awesome!!

Steph @ This Organized Mess said...

First, the dry erase idea is genuis !! Second, I love the message to your boys. I always say You can let go it's not going anywhere. They apparently do not believe me.
Third I found you thru Making the World Cuter Monday and you definitely have a new follower !! Just from this post I see we have much in common !!

Stop by and "visit" me sometime !

hahaha, poo.
Yeah, boys. Right now we have a 15 month , 18 yr boys, my BIL who is 24 (going on 13) and the hubs. Yeah, entertaining to say the least.

Jamielyn said...

i love frames too! Those green ones are so cute!

Kimberly said...

This is fantastic - definitely will be checking through my stash of frames to try this out!

And I too could copy the message about pants and hands . . . I love being a mommy to a boy, they are so carefree about some things.

lhbw said...

Simple and smart, I love it! :) (And I've got three boys of my own...'nuff said!)

Seamingly Smitten said...

Wild Man and Romeo have one funny and craft Mama! Cute idea!

Great idea, my son would also love something like that in his room.

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

Great idea - who wouldn't love this?

Leanne said...

I love the burlap and frame color. And I LOVE the quotes.
This weekend I am hosting a party about words/quotes (The Weekend Word Search). Please consider stopping by. This project would be a great addition!

Meg said...

I think we're living the same life. Boys are fun, aren't they? And, with 3 kids being potty trained, poo is the theme of most of my days. Sadly. Love the color of the frame! Very cute.

Yanet @ 3 Sun Kissed Boys said...

Very clever! It looks very cute.

Staci J said...

That's hilarious! if only my boys could read, it'd say the same thing!! Very clever, and i LOVE the color:)

Great job. My daughter makes these for gifts. They are a big hit with the teenagers. ~~Sherry~~

Jessica said...

I think this is great, but I am kind of worried about my kids accidentally breaking the glass by knocking the frame off the wall. Instead of glass, I think it would be okay to use Plexiglas or a thick sheet of plastic.

Ms Bingles Vintage Christmas said...

Wow! Now, this really looks good!
I am not just saying that, I would do it in a heartbeat!
Have a great weekend and thank you for sharing!
