Back To School Organization: Creating A Dry Erase, Magnetic Board For The Family

Hi Everyone!
My name is Alexandra, I blog in a little corner of the crafty web called Hedgehog Hollow, I am so excited to be here as part of the new Deflecto design team. This month the theme was children. My oldest daughter is so disorganized and I knew as soon as I saw the Deflecto Craft Frame with Black Border, I had the perfect idea. Something for her to write notes on, for us to write reminders or fun phrases on and for her to hold up sentimental or important notes was important too, this is what I came up with...

I inserted some magnet paper in the back so she could pin up items, in the picture above I added the card I made her for getting her pen license at school plus her favorite picture of her baby sister. I personalized it with glitter vinyl saying 'Maddi's Notes' that I cut on my Silhouette Machine; I also added some silver glitter vinyl on top of the magnet paper to add some extra sparkle! The acrylic surface of the Deflecto Frame also makes the perfect dry erase board, I added an inspirational comment above and some more reminders in this picture...

I also placed all her stationery in the Deflecto Stackable Cube with X Dividers. I have one of these too with some of my craft supplies in, they are so useful! This could be personalized for any age or for the whole family with important information or reminders, you could adapt the colors and level of sparkle for the recipient, I would like one of these for my desk to add my to do list on or pin up meetings I need to attend. 

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you will join me and my fellow designers very soon for some more Deflecto organization ideas.

Happy Creating!

Organize Your Kids Bathroom

Hello, everyone! Nadine her today and one thing my house is really lacking in drawers in the bathroom cabinets. So things like toothbrushes, tooth paste, hair brushes and things are always all over my daughter's bathroom counter.  So I decorated a Deflecto X-Divider Stackable Organizer to match the theme she already has in her bathroom by using a stencil with little fish, but you could use any stencil you like. It works perfectly for her to quickly place her items in after use so they are no longer cluttering up the counter.

Below is a tutorial video showing exactly how decorated it.
Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to get updates when I post a new video.

Love the fishes, they are so cute!

For all the supplies used visit my blog here.
Thank you for visiting and happy crafting!

Young Kids Bedtime Routine Checklist with Decorative Frame

Hello, Jessica Litman here today! Anyone have young kiddos? And do you totally struggle with bedtime?? My kiddos are 3.5 and 5 years old, so bedtime can be a challenge. Mostly because my kiddos need constant reminders to complete their bedtime routines, which is why I created an easy bedtime routine checklist!

As a former teacher, I have learned that using pictures and words for young children allows them to complete tasks with minimal supervision from you, which is why this printable has both words and pictures. (More on how I organize young kiddos here!)

Then I put the printable in the Deflecto Craft Frame with some felt balls. Now we can use a dry erase marker to check off all the steps before we read books for bed!

Wool Felt Balls
Hot Glue Gun
Free Printable: Bedtime Checklist
White Board Markers


1. Lay out felt balls on craft frame in an arrangement you like. 
2. Hot glue the wool balls onto the frame.


3. Let dry.

4. Print off Bedtime Checklist free printable.
5. Insert printable into the frame.
6. Teach kiddos how to use checklist by writing on the frame after each task is complete.
7. Wipe off marker using cloth or Kleenex! 

This bedtime routine has helped make bedtime a little smoother when it comes to getting PJ's on, brushing teeth, and going to the bathroom!

Fabulous Fall Frame

When the days and nights start to get a little cooler... I start looking for simple ways to bring Fall into my home. One simple way is by adding beautiful graphics found on scrapbook paper and adding it to a frame.

I made my “Grateful for Fall” frame using the Deflecto 5″ x 7″ Beveled Edge Acrylic Frame and beautiful fall paper from Authentique Paper "Bountiful Collection."

After cutting and matting the fall graphics, I added resin acorns to the metal knobs.

Simple Fall Decorating. (and a simple reminder to be always Grateful)
