Calendar/Menu/Memo Board

We have been working on our kitchen lately. We are just trying to update it a bit. Part of this update was to take off the old laminate backsplash and refinish the walls behind it. We have this one area of wall that we were not sure what we should do with it.

Enter this frame:

Yes, it's from our wedding. Yes, our wedding happened almost 3 years ago. Yes, it's still in it's original packaging (For protection, ok? Don't judge!).

Here's the thing. I love this frame. I love that people signed it and gave us well wishes on our wedding day. I just had not gotten around to hanging it up. It has been on display at our house propped up nicely behind our couch for all to admire and see when they came over.

Until now.

Why? Because it is the perfect size for the awkward place in our kitchen! Snap!

So I took the frame and this really cute fabric I found in the remnants section at JoAnn's.

I used the fabric to wrap the photo mat inside the frame. I secured it with tape. Then I used my Cricut (Designer's Calendar Cartridge) to cut out a calendar frame.

After that, I cut out the words "Notes" and "Menu" (using Doodletype Cartridge) and put them onto coordinating scrapbook papers.

I positioned it all into the frame and used double sided tape to sick it to the fabric backing. Reassemble the frame and use a dry-erase marker to write on it and you are all set!

Now, if only this calendar/memo/menu board could make ME be more organized... if I build it, it will come, right?

Stay tuned for after pics of where I put it in the finished kitchen. I am just working on a little shelf to go under it and then I will show you.

I will be linking to these parties this week. Woohoo!


  1. Great idea! I love having a whiteboard to jot things down on, this is a wonderful way to have an organised one!

    Found you via Creating My Way to Success :)

  2. That fabric doesn't look like much all rolled up, but it looks great on your memo board! Now what did you do with your signed mat and picture? We have one too, but I can't seem to incorporate it into our home.
    By the way I totally agree with your blog name, this coming from a fellow red headed crafter named Courtney! :)

  3. This is adorable. Love the fabric! I did something similar on my fridge last week, but mine is not as tailored as yours. Beautiful! Found you through The House Creative! I'm a new follower. (And so is -my- chihuahua mascot. :) )
