So, in addition to trying to keep up with this sweet, little blog, I’m in the process of spring cleaning. And, yes, I’m aware it’s summer. I said “in the process.” I promise it started during spring. Anyway, I was working on the kitchen this week and decided that the (magnetic) door from the kitchen to the garage was just way too cluttered. I originally gave the door to the kids to cover with their papers, magnets, pictures, a small dry erase board, etc., but it got overtaken quickly, so I decided that they could play with magnets on the bottom half, and we’d choose and rotate a few prized pictures, papers or master pieces to adorn the top. I had an adorable magnetic Mickey head clip that came on the top of a bag of chocolate covered pretzels from the Earport at MCO, and I had snagged a 99 cent Disneyland magnetic clip from the Disney Store Outlet in Grapevine, TX. The third clip was a big, ugly pharmaceutical promo clip that my mom probably received from a vendor at work. Despite the fun I was having Magic Erasering the wainscoating and trying to cover up nail holes with framed pictures, I took a moment and, very quickly and easily, I might add, spruced up our new master piece holder.
So here is the clip in all it’s completely unthoughtful, not-so-aesthetic glory…
I knew I could plus that (points for anyone who knows why I used “plus”)…
I traced the front of the clip onto a leftover piece of Mickey Mouse scrapbook paper then cut it out. Getting super complicated, right?
Next, I swiped one of the kids’ glue sticks to attach the paper to the clip.
I just happened to have some Disney letter stickers to decorate a bit, and here is where I’d Mod Podge it if I could ever do it correctly. I didn’t.
And here it is holding up a picture from Halloween. Yes, it was definitely time to clean. 😉
Now I wish we had more ugly magnets to cover!!
