Growing up my mother had our fridge PLASTERED, and I mean PLASTERED with magnets. Free ones, ones she collected, it didn't seem to matter. I always thought that fridge was ugly. Or maybe I just hated having to take them all down to clean the fridge (which was often my job). At any rate I vowed that when I grew up, I wouldn't have a fridge cluttered with tacky magnets.
Fast forward to today. I've got 4 kiddos who are constantly creating works of art for me. I've got wedding invitations with beautiful engagment photos that I hate to throw away. I've got the random note, or reminder that I want to be visible.
The other day I had an urge to make something, but had nothing really to make. Then the fridge caught my eye and so did a stack of cardboard from a recent photo print delivery, as well as a couple photos sitting on my bar waiting for a home. And a simple idea was born. I got out the good old mod podge and scrapbook paper and made these interchangeable frames for my fridge. (Sorry I know the pic is horrible quality, but I am having a lazy day!) The photos are attached with Zots, so they can be exchanged easily. The clip magnets can be found just about anywhere - these were found at the grocery store. They can also be made larger for your kids' art work.
Talk about a fun and EASY project. And one I can be proud to hang on my fridge! ;)
