Window Frame Birthday Gift!

Right before my sister's birthday in June, we attended this incredible craft show at our local fair grounds.......and inspiration struck.  Below are some snapshots of her birthday present that Cory and I put together.

The old window frame that I've had for over a year now got a new look with some shiny, red spray paint.  Cory cut some thin wood pieces to fit on the ends, and I painted them with several coats of chalkboard paint.  The middle section we covered with chicken wire!

I whipped up a small bag with a jute drawstring to hold the chalk :)
The clothespins got a good coat of red paint, and using Mod Podge, I adhered the cherry scrapbook paper.  The clothespins are to attach little notes, cards, or papers to the chicken wire.

I think this will look amazing on the wall in her NEW office her husband is creating for her!

Happy Birthday Lisa!

Friends I want share with you some. That time of the year has rolled around once again and you’re stressing about planning the perfect birthday party. Regardless of your child’s age, almost very parent deals with the pressures and anxieties surrounding their kid’s birthday parties. Perhaps it’s because children put so much stock into this event, something they look forward to for months. After all, it only comes once a year; as well, it’s the one day where your son or daughter is able to revel in being special (via gifts, treats, cakes and often money, of course). Planning a birthday party for your child can be trying and surviving the experience is equally challenging. Fortunately there are some tips and strategies that parents can employ before the big event that will assure a rousing good time – with little stress – for all involved.
