a tick off my list...

Most of you will be aware of my intention to make one of these.  Last week on Friday, I had an unexpected day of work due to Cammy being sick, so I headed off to spotlight to purchase some hessian, spray adhesive and some lettering...

I had no spare time at all during the day, but managed to find some time during the evening. 

The spray adhesive was really easy to use, and really does glue {can you tell I was a little dubious}
Tryign the letters out for size, and making sure everything is lined up properly in the frame.
Doesn't it look so cool.
 

My kids love it, and it should save us so much hassle in this house, we always create a menu plan and shop accordingly, but also always forget to take meat out in the morning, so then end up cooking something very different *whoops*
