Chore Chart

Tonight I made a fun chore chart for the kiddos. 
 Each kid has every day chores that are in their color. Stuff like "make your bed" and "put away dishes" are in there.  Then the "take one" chores are special things, they only have to do one of those a day. These include, "wash dishes" (which is a new chore so they are not all the time doing it yet) "dust baseboards" and "clean your bathroom". As they complete their daily chores they move the sticks to the "all done" envelope, so they get to see their accomplishments for the day.
I have hanging issues with it. If I put it on the wall high enough that the baby won't pull it apart Ethan cannot reach his sticks. So this fridge thing seems to work for now. :)

Nails and more Hello Kitty

Here are my first Easter Nails. I will likely have to re-do them before Easter. And here is a super cute Hello Kitty card. :) I think that squirrel is just the most adorable thing ever. (btw squirrel is a horrible word to spell. Doesn't look right at all, I move we change it.) I also love these Paper Smooches stamps, the words and word bubble. :)

Really CAS Hello Kitty

My mother-in-law, who also happens to be a very good friend of mine, loves Hello Kitty. And my cards. So when I saw a set of cute Hello Kitty stickers the other day at Michael's I picked them up to make her some cards. Here are a few.
I never think to make get well type cards. I'm making a concentrated effort to make more of them. And I really like how these sweet stickers worked out.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was pretty stinking good. Some fun thrift store shopping. Found a GREAT home for one of my chickens who was not happy here. Got a new fridge. It was a good weekend.

Oh and I set a goal. I REALLY want to know how to play the piano. I always have. So I'm setting that as a 5 year goal.
