I saw this fabulous “Do” list on someone’s blog the other day, and I cannot for the life of me find it again. In typical Amy fashion, I put it in my idea file, but forgot to make sure I had the link saved also. So - - I know it is on one of your blogs - - if it’s yours, send me an email and I will link you to this!!
Don’t you just love it? I love that it is a positive twist on a household “list of rules.” I took the words and ran with the idea, making my own movable version. That’s what we do in the military - - we make movable versions of everything. That along with checking the weight of a piece of furniture before we purchase it!!
I plan on hanging this on the wall in the hallway outside the kids room. It’s actually just leaning there right now until I can go and get the hardware needed to hang it.
Here’s the line that really sold me, “We do loud really well.” If you knew my family, or hung around with us for any amount of time - - - especially if Handsome Hubby is around - - you would know that we do LOUD really well!!! We joke that my husband has the laugh, “heard around the world!” It’s true - - it’s really loud! When we were dating in college, that would be how I would find him. I would just open my dorm room window - - listen for a few seconds, hear his laugh, and head off in the direction I heard it! I love that my man is such a happy person and not afraid to share that joy - - especially with his family!
So, yes, we do loud really well!!
To make the sign, I dry brushed my blue paint on my board, used my T-square to chalk some guidelines on for writing my words. Then free-hand painted the words on my board. After it all dried, I used some sandpaper to distress the entire sign and added some white accents using my paint pen. It was a quick and easy evening projects that serves as a great reminder to all of us of the things we, as a family, should be doing!
