As part of my family command center, I have a magnet board. Doesn't command center sound much better than where I hang random stuff. My magnet board is an old frame I painted and my husband cut sheet metal to use as the magnetic surface. I like to hang pictures on mine.
I like using picture frames with glass as dry erase boards. I think it is a step above the white board you put in your locker in High School. Currently I have 2 dry erase boards that have been made out of cupboard doors that have been modified with glass. The two quotes I have been on there for a while. They hang in my family room. It is difficult to get a good picture because the light really reflects off the glass.
I think I am a plant lady or a plant hoarder. I really can't decide which. I love big plants and I cannot lie. The pic above is of my aloe. It is huge surrounded by all its little babies. I believe my Mother in Law gave me the original plant and I think it is about 13 years old.
This throw back Thursday goes with my post on Monday about sidewalk chalk. My son and his friend loved playing with sidewalk chalk. They cracked me up one time with their drawing of their "SECRET FACILITY"
It seems to be TRADITION at our house to make these construction paper haunted house. We made these about a week ago. The Halloween Season wouldn't be complete without them. My 19 year old even made one.

I have been using the pattern from Sarah Jane Studios. I have done my own pattern in the past. I don't think the pattern above is especially easy to cut out. I use an exacto knife for the windows. We used stickers. These certainly can be elaborate as you want.
