Now I can be organized...

This was my Merry Christmas to Amy...love Amy.
Just before Thanksgiving I saw the greatest magnet/dry erase/calender and I wanted one so bad. The girl that had it said she got it from Ala' Board... & I was on a quest to have one. I found the website... but was a little dismayed that it was $189.00. I don't know if I could embezzle that kind of money right before Christmas for a calender. I set off trying to figure it out. I have to say right here that I hate it when people try to Relief Society everything ( ya know, make it themselves instead of just couging up the money for the real one that is cute)... I know the creators of Ala Board are the masters and creators of this...but, I just didn't have the mulah to buy one of theirs and I was interested in instant graitification.
This is my finished product. The month and dates are magnets...and it is a dry erase board. It probably isn't as great as the one from Ala' Board, but heck it was a lot cheaper and a little more custom...plus I added a little bit of glitter. Everything is better/cuter/fancier with glitter. Mine is 18 X 24 plus the frame and fits perfectly in my pantry. My sister, Brandy, and I made some for Christmas gifts and they were a hit! I gave one to my friend, Collette, for her birthday/Christmas and she loved it too. I guess it was a successful project.
Now.. there is no excuse for me to be unorganized... oh yeah, except for the fact that I am a dingbat and don't look at the calender... or forget to write it down...or just forget altogether.
But, at least the calender is cute!

La-la-love it and what would one have to do to persuade you to sell these bad boys?! Or, I could tell you my birthday is in May. ;)

Seriously Amy, those are fab!

You are officially part of my blogtourage! And that board is awesome. Clearly, you are much craftier than me, and can probably sew a button onto some pants.

You are going onto my Reader!

Hi, I came across your cute blog through the tipsy top girls and I love the board. My mom and sis both got those ala boards at swiss days in Midway and I wanted one so bad but couldn't afford it! Would you mind emailing me some instructions on how you did it. thanks

Cutest calender evah! I had to laugh at the "relief society everything". So true. When I come to town I want to craft with Amy.
