picture frame whiteboards

i'm a huge fan using the picture frame white board idea. extremely and ridiculously simple. all you need is a picture frame, scrapbook paper and a dry erase pen...amazing yes? it's works wonders the kids i work with  because they choose the design/color of paper to have in the background {love that the littlest things are the most motivating for kids}. you can also run lessons by printing pages in the back..identifying body parts, math or just practicing their's fun to get creative with it. just remember that it is glass and most frames have sharp rule is it stays at the table. okay enough kid talk, here's what i did for my o' so grown up house :)

this idea has been floating around pinterest and i've wanted to do it every since i laid my eyes on it
the boy and i take turns, every so many days and write a new message
sometimes goofy, sometimes super mushy, always uplifting.
{i'm pretty stoked i got him to participate}

well school is back in session {and the boys home!} so we needed some organization for the meal situation
my schedule is different every day and night so obviously i pinned this idea off pinterest.

i super glued the wine corks at the bottom if i wanted to add a recipe or note to the boy
he's been helping out big time with our various dinners so it's not all on me :)
if it tastes's his fault ;)
eventually i want to put it on the wall..but for now it will hang out right here.

another tidbit...i forgot to mention if you're adding stickers put them on the paper not the glass
then you can save some mulu and reuse the picture frame
the scrapbook frame above was first used for a school project,
after i took pictures for my portfolio, i took it apart 
and wahla! a menu.
