How do you impress a group of FOURTEEN year old boys?
This mouse pad did the trick-
Yes, one of the things I love to do is not only CREATE projects but to display them. On the main level of our house we keep our computer (in the kitchen). We wanted the kids to be near us and supervised when they are "online."
I decided to get a customized PHOTO mouse pad this Summer- using Zach's photo from baseball. It was super easy to order online (www.walgreens.com) and was on sale at the time for $2.99. With shipping it was less than $10.00.
I put it out by the computer and waited to see "who" would notice it. Of course, it was fast! My kids all loved it and wanted their own mouse pad. Obviously, I saw this coming and loved it. PS Don't tell them but Christmas will be fun (stocking stuffers)-
This past weekend- Zach's baseball friends came over for late night- sleep over and they all saw Zach's mouse pad and one of the boys commented- "That is the coolest thing ever! I want my own photo too!" They all were commenting that they loved it. I loved it!
I thought I would share another way that I like to display my "memories" and well...maybe it is something that you too would like to do.
I am leaving in less than ONE day for Scrapfest!!!!!! I am so excited because I will be able to connect with THOUSANDS of crafters who LOVE what I love. We connect and it's so inspiring.
NOTE: emails regarding my last post. The book that I filmed my Monday show at MCC was using my Fabrication 10x10 Chipboard cover (tan damask). I cut the chipboard to 8"wide x 10" h. I used the 2" piece on the right side front edge of the book to build it up. THANK you for all the emails and for following me on Facebook.
