Cosmo Cricket....I'm in LOVE

I have played with the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird line for some time now. I just can't seem to get enough of it! My only problem now, I've run out of it! Thank goodness for a little birthday money so I can replenish my stock. They also have Early Bird fabric now! How cool is that? I have decided to decorate my kitchen using Early Bird products.

While visiting the talented Melonie's blog, I saw a very fun idea I just knew I wanted to try. I took an old frame I had and altered it. Instead of a picture inside, I put a solid piece of cardstock.

It is my dry erase menu board. I have started meal planning. I list out enough meals for two weeks. It matches my little recipe mini album from Creative Cuts And More that I made. I glued a little magnet to the side of the frame as the dry erase pen came with a magnet on it. This way its sort of hidden and I won't accidentally lose it.
I'm in love with these flowers. They are so much fun! And doesn't the patterned paper make the best leaves for the flowers?
While at a get together with some friends, the hostess had this bottle of beer out on her counter. I loved that it had my last name on it and even better yet, it goes with the early bird line! I may just have to pick up a few extra as I love the looks of the bottle!
The menu board is one of my favorite projects. I had so much fun making it. I am thinking about making ones for the kids rooms too!

I love this! You inspired me to make one as well, although I don't have a whole matching set like you. LOL

Sooo cool, I love your ideas. I do have to ask however, what is a haystack (it's on your menu board)?

LOL! This does not surprise any of us :-)
It is SUPER CUTE! I love it! Cosmo should put you on their payroll! ;-)
I love beer bottles. My old neighbot gave me one and it's label says I cried when my goldfish died LOL At the time we had 7 fish tanks and they all were making fun of me LOL
