It's a new year and I'm whipping my family into shape! What? You've heard that one before and it usually only lasts until February? Yeah, I know. But this project has become an evening habit that my kids are loving and keep asking about.
Our Family Matters Clipboard hangs in the kitchen and is the parking spot for reminders, schedules, comments and concerns.
I had been battling the paperwork on my desk (our command central) and I realized things were still falling through the cracks. I wasn't reviewing the calendar with my family (so they could remind me about things like crazy hair day) and I was always shuffling invitations and fliers from school that I wasn't sure if we were interested in or could fit in with my husband or kids' schedules.
After dinner we review the Family Matters clipboard. On this particular day, along with the calendar, I found a love note from Jack and a "consirn" from Katelyn. I'm loving that it helps us discuss things as a family and everyone gets a chance to be heard.
This started as a kit, but any old clipboard will work. I used decoupage glue, some ribbon and a little clip with a Bazzil Bitty Blossom. For paper, I covered mine with Willoughby, of course!
