We had a good day, and I was glad I didn't overrun my mouth last night. ..When I used to teach, we had a great school counselor and she had this great analogy...she said words are like toothpaste, once they're out there, you can't put them back in the tube. I loved it, and I t-r-y to remember that. I'm sooo not perfect, but I like to not have to try to shove all that toothpaste back in my loud
Ok, so my life went on..we had a great morning, and I ran into a friend after lunch that I haven't seen in years, and she's here on a break from teaching missionaries' kids in the Philippines. She has such a sweet heart, and anyone ministering on a mission deserves our support-such a step of faith. (and with her beautiful kids too!)
Ok, want to do an easy craft?
Ok, here are your supplies: dry erase marker (really important), a solid color plate or serving dish (or a glass dish, a solid color tile, etc.), and...a plate stand!
I have a Pampered Chef plate ...I couldn't find it online : ( maybe they quit making it? Anyway, I have one in my kitchen:
|See how you run your ribbon through? I change it for holidays : )|
1. Write on your plate. (Instructions, scripture, dinner menu for the week, Happy Birthday messages, etc.)
2. Put it in a plate stand.
3. That's it! ; )
Here's the one by my oven:
|I promise I didn't get these ready for you, so ignore our dinners..it's summer! But how cute? I got this plate at Wal-Mart even! : )|
(Do not ask me how I got those pictures to get beside each other, just lots of button clicking!)
So, make yourself a pretty plate! You can fancy it up with colored dry erase markers, hearts, flowers (stickers maybe?), and you could add a bow if you taped it (kinda on the back maybe?). I have a cool ivory plate that I got at a flea market that has handles, and it was sooo perfect! (but it's in my living room with no words..)
Ok, and I'll leave you with a hint at my next project:
ps: A Lesson.
Did you know...that tin snip handles come in colors (and they have meanings?) Red cuts straight or to the left, green cuts straight or to the right (for lefties!), and yellow cuts straight and either direction. Guess which color I got? Heehee, *Love* tools!
