How To: Dry Erase Calendar


This is a quick little project that you can completely customize to fit your space based in the paper you select!

First select a frame with glass for this project. Any large frame will do 16 x 20" or larger. Mine shown is 24 x 30".

I wanted something bright and selected my background paper first. It has a look of vintage lines notebook paper, with ivory, red and light blue as the main colors. purchase enough background paper to cover the entire size of you frame in a tiling formation. Scrapbook paper works well for this. With soapy options, you can even change this seasonally.

Next, I selected solid color scrapbook paper in the three main colors of the background paper. You will be writing on these, so nothing too dark!

This is where some measuring comes in. Take the width of your frame and divide by 7. Then subtract .5 from this number. Your result is how many inches wide each square should be, leaving one half inch between squares.

Cut your solid color squares to this size. Lay them out on the board for positioning and make any necessary adjustments. You should finish with five rows of seven squares. Write nothing on the squares, and you will only write on the glass (including the days for that month).

Glue stick everything to your base paper, and carefully replace in the frame with the glass on top. Using a dry erase marker only, begin filling in you calendar, and enjoy!

So what does Pinterest suggest we use to clean, like, everything? Dawn and White Vinegar. I'll try anything once.

Here's how it went down:

1) Filled a bathtub with hot hot hot water, 1 c Dawn and 2 c White Vinegar.



2) Folded up the Pack-n-Play, shaking out any crumbs (there are always crumbs), and laid the whole thing down into the hot bath. I ran my hands along the netting and material to agitate any dirt and grime off of them.



3) Allow to soak about 15 minutes. To rinse, I drained out the tub water, then turned on the shower and hopped in to direct the shower head all over the Pack-n-Play to rinse well.


4) To dry, you can either lug it outside, pop it open (upside down) and allow to …

What to do when baby has a cold...

As a new(er) mom, I sought out the advice of moms before me when my little one had her first cold. Of course, so many advice gets thrown at you, but when they're too little for medicine, here is the best combination of remedies to help baby colds and congestion:
