Weekly Menu Planner

Hi everyone! Kim T here for "Anything but a card Friday" and I decided to try something a little different this week! I had an extra 8x10" frame laying around my craft room so decided to kill 2 birds with one stone and make a project as well as to help myself in my weekly meal planning! (The picture below is a photo of the card without the glass so that you could see some of the details)

I am forever plagued but losing the my weekly meal planning lists and because I don't particularly enjoy meal planning in general, there is nothing worse than having to do it twice in one week! So I made this pretty dry erase board meal planner using the Bon Appetit set and my computer :D I created the little weekly calendar and banners on my computer and combined it with my coloured chef whom I have affectionately named Chef Boyardee :D

Did you know that glass acts beautifully as a dry erase board? So framed works of art/cards are the perfect use for creating beautiful dry erase boards. This one will sit on my kitchen island and now I won't have to go looking for stray lists that have grown legs and walked away all by themselves and best of all it's re-usable!

Meal Planner Recipe:

Stamps: There She Goes - Bon Appetit
Paper: Caramel, Gina K, Water Colour, Basic Grey, Black, My Mind's Ey, K&Co
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Ranger Distress Antique Linen and Vintage Photo
Accessories: Sewing Machine, 8x10 Frame, Computer and Printer for Chart and Sentiments, Sponges, Tombows, Chalk Pencil, Craft Knife, Tombow Multi
