Hello there! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I sure did! I spent the weekend in San Diego visiting my parents, so I've been M.I.A. We had a nice visit and got tons of shopping done. I actually got a lot of stuff that I needed or had been wanting to get and at pretty good prices, so I'm a happy camper!
One of the places we went to was Ikea. I needed to return a couple of things as well as get a few more things - one of them being a replacement picture frame for my dry erase calendar I made that you can view here. That was before tragedy struck as seen here. Very, very sad. But, I got her all fixed up!
I had remembered seeing picture frame sized glass at Home Depot awhile ago, so originally I had decided to try my luck there. I did my measurements and found the size that I needed. It was only a few dollars. Score!
As I ripped open the plastic, thinking how clever I am, my hopes were soon dashed as I tried setting the glass into the opening. Alas, it didn't fit. Sighhhhh. I must not have taken exact measurements (seriously - I was off by a centimeter. Really? REALLY??), plus it's an Ikea frame which never really quite works out to the same as regular store-bought frames. So I made the trip back to Home Depot and returned the glass. And then I patiently waited until I got the chance to get a replacement frame at Ikea. Their frames are pretty cheap and I figured that I had to get other stuff there, so why not just get the same exact frame. (I ended up using the other frame without the glass in it for something else - yay for me and reusing it!)
There were a couple of changes that I made this time around. I found a different blank calendar that I liked better because the actual boxes were a bit bigger and easier for me to write in. I found it here at Cutie Pie Printables. I also hung it from 2 of the little command hooks instead of 1. I almost had a tragedy before - it actually fell off the hook and onto the counter, but no damage was done (not until it was introduced to my elbow). And I bought a new set of dry erase markers - they are mini sized and different colors, which should make it more fun.
So, there you have it. She's all fixed up and ready to go.
I hope everyone has a good week. I'll have more projects for you this week.
