Planning Central

Sometimes it's hard to keep a secret.  This little project was so fun to whip up, but it was a Christmas present so I couldn't share it until the gift was given.

Now the cat's out of the bag, so I want to show you what I put together for my daughter.  She's a wife, a new mom, a teacher, a coach, and a bible study leader.  She's busy.  Can't remember where I saw a piece that inspired this one, but here's what I created to help her stay organized.

I found a 4 piece 8x10 frame set at Kohl's.  All four frames are connected so it's one big piece.

Megan's color scheme is red, black, and gray, so I selected scrapbook papers to follow her color scheme.  Then I used my Silhouette to cut and create the words and borders for each frame.

I put a blank calendar in place so she'd have a place to record upcoming events.  

I also gave her a place to record things on her To Do list.

Every busy mom needs a place to plan for meals.

Which means she'll also need a place for her shopping list.

All of the pages were assembled and placed under the glass.  Now she can use a dry erase marker to record her needs and erase as needed.

The beauty is that she can swap out pages if other needs arise.  I suspect I'll need to make a Babysitter Notes page soon!
