Today I made this plaid skirt. For some reason I love plaid it just makes me feel happy when I see a cute chunky pattern. And everything is cute when finished with a bow.

My kids always say "mom i'm so board" especially when I'm trying to keep them quiet in church. I'm a busy mom of three and rarely get it all together as I'm running out the door so all to often I don't bring the necessary entertainment. I made these bags with my oldest two, it was a fun activity to make together as we designed their favorite things to decorate them. Now on Sunday morning they pack their own bag with snacks, coloring, scriptures, small toys and whatever they need. It was so good to not hear "mom i'm board" as we attended our church meetings last week.
I picked up some frames at a yard sale for $1.00 each and they had mats so I got a can of cream spray paint and some black craft paint and worked my magic. Then i noticed a scrap piece of wood in the garage that I used for the "together we have it all" saying. Using my computer and a piece of my favorite scrabok paper i printed the saying on it and modge podged it to the board. Finishing it all with a scratching of my sandpaper...fun, simple, affordable, and super cute too.
