About Me

Cusseta, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids.! My husband Tim is a Soldier on Fort Benning. I work for MWR for the Community Recreation Division as an admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing, she is in her 9th season (2017-2018) of being a competitive dancer. It's exhausting but we LOVE it. Cale is starting to REALLY get into sports. He is on a year round wrestling team, and he plays baseball in the spring! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too! On Valentines Day of 2017 we bought our first Travel Trailer. I'll be documenting our travels also on this blog!

Easy memo pad...

This is a pretty easy and cheap gift to make or use for yourself.  I can't find the blog I originally got this idea from, so if you see this (which I dought they will!) I'm sorry I couldn't link your site!  All you need is a $2 tile from home depot (not sure of the price anywhere else, that's where I got this one!) it's the larger tile that is bigger than your hand.  You can either get the rub on transfers for this or if you have an electronic cutter (I have a cricut) you can use some vinyl, which in this case is what i used. 

 Then I bought a bag of wooden knobs at hobby lobby - they need to be flat on the bottom.  I believe I got 12 knobs for $2.99.  Paint (you know I busted out my spray paint) these to match or if you want you can leave them "naked"
I also bought this glue in a 4 pack for about 3.99 at hobby lobby.
Then you glue the knobs to the bottom of the tile and VWALA you have an instant dry erase board.  It took me litterally 10 minutes to make and that included spray painting the knobs!
