Do you have a project that just sits at the back of your mind FOREVER just waiting to take a clear shape? I have way too many to count! Sometimes I have an idea, but I just can't "see" it in my head. I had been dreaming and scheming up a FHE Chart for months. I am proud to say that this Family Home Evening Chart is finally complete. Once I had the vision, it just took a few hours to put together with a bit of help from the hubby.
It all started with this innocent piece of bare wood that I bought at The Wood Connection. (You will be hearing a lot about The Wood Connection considering I came home with more than $100 of wood from The Wood Connection the last time we visited Utah!)
I really wanted a chart with both words and pictures. I wanted Little Man to understand the chart even before he could read! The hardest part of this project was finding the images to design my vinyl. I love how simple the pictures are... perfect for kids to understand!
I adore the metal bracket (Can someone tell me the true name for this.... I don't think it's really a bracket!) It just adds a bit of elegance, don't you think? Mr. Oopsey Daisy got involved with this project, and helped drill in the beautiful bracket. Thanks, babe!
Instead of just swapping little tags with our names, I loved the idea from You Craft Me Up of using our pictures instead! I love the classy black and white pictures. I found blank keychains on sale at JoAnn's, developed some pictures, and cut them down to size. I added a bit of ribbon as a finishing touch!
I love red! It's so bold and beautiful and matches our room perfectly. Isn't it silly that this little chart makes me so much more excited for Family Night?
Have a great week, my friends!
