I am completely capable at copying other people’s really good ideas.
I used this skirt tutorial to make skirts for me and my girls. I know that this picture from my camera phone is completely dull and uninspiring so imagine us all wearing our new cute skirts and running about on a sunny autumn day in a field covered with red and yellow leafs and our skirts bouncing, twirling and looking completely darling and stylish.
I also thought a kitchen table map would make wiping down my dining room table easier and make for some fun dinner conversations. I bought this fun map from Utah Idaho Supply Map World because where else should you go to get a map but Map World. When I came home with it my husband wasn’t sure about the whole vinyl tablecloth look on our dining room table but after taking it off for a few day for a dinner party, he kept asking me to put it back on.
Yes, it does make wiping down our table much easier. There are just too many darn decorative cracks in our table top.
(I’ll admit I was temped to photo shop my banged up chairs to look perfect but that’s not real life, is it? I’ve gone crazy with stain and a sharpie marker before and it helps but not for long. I guess it matches the whole vinyl look. Ha.)
Leah, point to the elephant.
And last but not least. I made myself one of these awesome weekly menu boards in hopes of feeding my family more regularly. So far so good , too. I’ve let everyone pick out one meal a week. It’s fun to have the kids read what we’re having for dinner and hear them say “It’s your night for ____!”
So there you have it. I’m good at copying. How about you? Are you naturally clever or do you need some inspiring ideas to spring off of?
