DIY - I Love Frames

pin twins: i love you because dry erase frames

So I have probably re-pinned this pin multiple times since I first saw it. It's so simple, why on earth did it take me so long to do actually do it??

Well, let me tell you...

1. I was frameless. Until Thanksgiving and my other pinterest attempt (see below) - I had ZERO blank empty "cute" frames laying around. I know they are really easy to find, but I never really thought of buying them until after the fact. However, after TK was over, I had four lovely white frames with nothing in them...score!

2. Dry Erase Markers are becoming extinct. At least I think so. I'm not sure if any of you have noticed, but stores do not carry dry erase pens like they used to. My theory, everything is so fancy and high-tech these days, the most simple items are becoming hard to find. I checked two grocery stores, one Rite Aid and even Home Depot. I had to go all the way to Office Depot to find them! Next time I am using Amazon Prime - no hassle, two days and free shipping and I can get these neon ones! **side note, I bought them right after I added the link! :)

Anyway, I am glad I did it because now I get messages like these from my darling husband... 

I love you because of what an amazing person you are

Isn't he sweet? :)
