Who Knew?

that I could be a little crafty/creative!? I had a big, blank space on a wall in my kitchen that I had no idea what to do with. I am not attracted to many wall pictures (except ones that are always out of my budget!) so that was out... what to do?
Pinterest to the rescue!
I saw this idea and it looked easy enough, so I found this old mirror frame on Craigslist

and gave it a coat of leftover paint. I then went to Lowe's and found a big, thin board that I primed with magnetic primer and chalkboard paint, and ta-da! I now have no more big, blank space, but a place to jot down verses,sayings, etc. that are on my mind.

It was a fun project! :)


My girls

 It seems like time is flying by so fast and I don't want to miss a moment of these two. Their love for each other makes my heart swell. Oh I know the days will come when they will be irritated at the other for wearing her shoes or taking her toy or ruining her dress... but for now, they are each other's favorite person. Emma can make Leila light up like neither Clinton nor I can.
 I can't thank God enough for them!
