Magnetic Message Center

I haven't completed very many craft projects lately because we're finishing our basement and all my craft supplies are in storage.  Once the basement is done though I'll have my very own craft room to spread out in.  I'm so excited to be able to complete all the projects floating around in my head.  That being said, this is a project that required very few supplies and was so simple to complete, yet will make my life so much easier.

This is a magnetic board that was simply glued to the inside of my kitchen cabinets.
I did 2 magnet boards, one on the inside of each door.  I simply took a sheet of metal and cut it down to size with a pair of tin snips (thanks to my neighbor who owns every tool imaginable) and then glued it to the inside of the door with some liquid nails.  I took the doors off and put some heavy books on top of them for 24 hours to let the glue dry, then hung the doors back up.  Now I have a place to hang phone lists and notes without having to tape them up everywhere.

Family Updates

Life has kept us busy.  We're finishing our basement so things are a bit chaotic around here, but it will sure be nice to have the extra space once it's done.  The kids love to be involved, which keeps us busy, so here's a look at what we've been up to:

Cody and Whitney both got leading rolls in their school play this year.  Cody played the part of the Baker in The Gingerbread Girl and Whitney played Sleeping Beauty in a play titled Once Upon A Hundred Years Nap.

Cody has also been playing basketball and just finished a great season.

We also celebrated Hailee's birthday.

Kids grow up so fast.  I love being able to share their lives with them.  I love to see them excited about things.  I may be a bit bias, but I've got the best kids in the world.
