lurve this ideasies.

i think this idea ROCKS. maybe a DIY. sigh.
oh, someday, perhaps. maybe by the time i'm 51 or 52.

call me a thief.

happy wednesday.
i thought i'd share a little project on the blog today.
i don't share {or do} a lot of diy's, thanks to my busy schedule.
however, yesterday i was feeling awfully crafty-
and the leisure summertime allowed me to create something fun.
i totally stole this idea from one of my best friends, 
and would link it to her blog if she had one. {hint, hint}
it's time to get your craft on,
and create a fun, inexpensive and adorable calendar! 

"call me a thief":
that title relates to the fact, that i made this project for a grand total of $3.
{pretty impressive, right? so cheap and so cute!}

what you will need:
1. paint samples {usually free! i got mine at home depot}
2. a lovely picture frame! {this one was on sale at Michael's for $3}
3. dry erase marker.
4. of course you will need the essentials: scissors and glue.

1. simply pick out your paint samples and colors. {six colors in total}
i chose to do an "ombre" look, however mixed colors are darling too!
2. trim to the size you want your boxes.
3. paste onto a solid white piece of paper the size of your frame.
4. on top of the picture frame's class, using a dry erase maker:
 label the month, days, and events you have going on that month.
5. ta-da! that's it. now, go hang it in your cute home!

so simple, and you'll feel like a thief too.
creating a project for $3 is a complete steal, if you ask me!
plus- it's a craft that keeps on giving.
all you have to do, is erase it when the month is over,
and you'll have a brand new calendar for the next month! 

p.s. sorry for the low quality photo's- lovebird has our camera back home with him.
also, don't mind my ugly hand writing- i simply just jotted a few things
down to show you an example. i've obviously got some touching up to do!
