About Me

My photo
Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their 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. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! 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!

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!
