Family Organisation

We have a great section of our kitchen wall painted as a blackboard and it is fabulous! I cannot recommend it highly enough for all sorts of lists and messages.

I was quite taken by this blackboard calendar which would be an easy DYI project for the weekend. Isn’t it great?

Avoid Advent Disappointment

….and start your handmade advent calendar now. Each year I have great plans, intentions, ideas….and at the end of November I find myself a little panicked. In 2011 we had a ‘uber’ cool advent calendar made of black paper coffee cups, threaded with brown twine and decorated with red numbers. Each cup contained a special advent verse and a sweet treat.

I have found so much inspiration on pinterest. Have you planned your advent?
