SPT- because of a blogger...

I am considered a crafty person. I never was much of a crafty person, until I got married and started learning how to at Homemaking. Ok, is Homemaking so much easier to say then Personal, Family and Home enrichment. Whoever came up with that name? Way too long! Anyway, it was still called Homemaking when I first got married. Besides wanting to make my house look nice with a minimal of income, I love to learn new things and craftying was very new to me. Since I started blogging, I have found a wealth of knowledge and creative people out there, who actually put tutorials and everything on their blogs. They are saying, "please, steal my ideas!" So I do! I have a whole folder of downloaded crafts and such to make- sometime! The only one that I have actually finished, though, is this- our chore charts.I got the idea off of the last Pink Christmas. It was to Amanda H. from Liz H. Hers turned out so much cuter. I couldn't find the bigger boards and of course 3 of them were for boys, so I couldn't make them as cute.

How people come up with these amazing ideas is beyond me, but I love getting inspired by them!

i think you did a great job on the chore boards (i know how hard it can be to translate some of this stuff to boys!)

Cute chore charts.

Where did you find the cute clipart to use?

My kids really need chore charts to help them keep on track - and come to think of it maybe I will make one for hubby too!

Love the chore charts! I need to do something like that. I just tell my kids what to do each day, and they love that--not! :) I need to get their chores organized like you!

you follow your mother's motto" I may not create ideas but I do know where to steal creative ideas." and that thought has served me well for any years. Another motto I am now practicing" I don't make crafts but I know people who do and they give me presents and grandchildren and I love both." Mom
