Am I seeing double?

I received my Shape magazine today - one in my maiden name and one in my married name. If that wasn't odd enough, I received my order for my 3" scallop paper punch and there were 2 in the box. I ordered and paid for one. I wonder if I can get a double paycheck...

Spring/Summer Wreath

This was so simple. I have a wicker wreath that I wrapped a piece of fabric around. (I had done a little surgery to a shirt I have and this was the band of fabric I cut off of it) Then I took white ribbon and tied little bows all around it to hold the fabric down. I love the simple, ocean look to it. It looks adorable on the front door.

First project of the weekend

Chore charts are filled out and hung...next stop is to buy some little stickers! Underneath the chore chart page is a reward chart. We are going to work with each child on specific behaviors they need to work on. Under the reward chart is a "I listened the first time" chart. (I found all if these in different places in the web and they were all free!) So when we catch them listening without first putting up a fight, they earn a sticker. I can't wait to see how it goes!
