Kitchen Refridgerator Picture Collage

Do you have pictures on your fridge held up my those unsightly advertizing magnets that are sent to you in the mail?

Well, I came up with this ingenious idea (all on my own – no I didn’t find it on Pinterest…)

These are the magnets that I have.


Some of them had those little calendars hanging from the bottom of the (which is actually where I came up with this idea).  I tore those old calendars, that I never even used anyway, off.

Then I took a long piece of clear tape.


Rolled it around my fingers to create a double-sided tape.


Placed the tape on the magnet and laid it out so that it was flat.


and attached the picture.




Pictures on my fridge without those ugly magnets.  Plus you can always tuck other pictures in behind the pictures on the magnets as well, and make a wonderful picture collage on your fridge.

Want to change pictures on your fridge?  No problem, the photos come off the tape easily without ruining the picture.


Side Tracked…

Besides having all my hair cut off, I was side-tracked on my decluttering project in early July.  You see, I took a trip to my home town to visit family for a week, and while I was gone, well, let’s just say my two dogs don’t much like fireworks…

My pet sitter was kind enough to txt me a picture of the damage they did to a wall in the kitchen (picture to follow in another post).

My kitchen was (being the operative word) wallpapered.  It has been this way since I bought it 15 years ago and have been wanting to take the paper down and do a plaster finish on the walls and paint instead.  So…. you guessed it – my dogs prompted and prioritized that project for me on the evening of July 4th.

I have pictures of the process and will share those in a future post over the next week or two.  I am still in the process of finalizing the renovation to the kitchen; getting all the final touch-ups done and pictures hung on the walls.  When all is done, I promise a post of the final transformation.  🙂

PS – I am SO glad to finally have the use of my kitchen again!

Stay tuned!

In the meantime, have you had any luck with your decluttering this summer?  Tell me what have you done?

Have you had a renovation (minor or major) home improvement project you have been wanting to do?  What is holding you back?

Locks For Love – The Day I Donated My Hair

What's For Dinner?

Cancer – It has impacted every one of us in some way shape or form.  I would bet that you personally know at least one person, if not more, that have taken on this personal battle.

I consider myself lucky, thus far, not to have had this terrible disease; but I know oh so many that have. (including my Dad)

For so many years now, I have always wanted to donate my hair to make wigs for those who lose theirs because of the treatments they have had to go through.  I have wondered, what would it be like to lose all your hair?

Well, today, I – sort of – found out.  Today I had 10 inches of hair cut off to donate to Locks For Love.  Locks For Love makes wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments.
