DO MORE OF WHAT YOU LOVE

DAY 43, JUNE 13, 2018

If you have been following my blog (thank you) or know me personally, you know I love to do crafts.  I love that you don’t have to be a great artist (I am not) or have a special skill (I don’t) to exercise your creativity.   When you are crafting, you are working with your hands to make something; hopefully, something worth displaying or something useful.  For me, it is very relaxing, I love the busywork.

Today, I finished these chore charts for a friend.  It was a work in progress, I usually won’t start a new project until I complete one already started.  I get a ton of satisfaction finishing things.

I found the instructions on Pinterest shared by:  https://lemonsqueezyhome.com/2012/08/chore-charts-diy.html

I tweaked the instructions by keeping the glass in the frame.  The magnets still stick really well and won’t turn the surface black and I think it looks much neater.  I also used a better grade of wooden discs found here:

Lastly, I saved money by not using circle labels.  I typed up the chores, printed on copy paper and used my 1″ circle cutter to make up the chores.

QUOTE FOR THE DAY:  Sometimes what you’re most afraid of doing is the very thing that will set you free.
