Family Organization Board

I hope the Easter bunny was good to all.  He sure was good to our family.

Liam, adorned with his snake face painting experienced Pop Rocks for the first time.  The look on his face is priceless…woah, what is going on in my mouth right now look of amazement.  His first response, “this is awesome!”.IMG_8168Dax was completely overjoyed when he heard that he got to go first in the family Easter egg hunt as the younger bunch got a head start out of the gates.  Here is the Dax-yeah-that’s-right-I-get-a-head-start look…IMG_8242Jonah “jo jo” Bear, was busy maneuvering his larger than normal body all over the place, and ever so often, captured the ever elusive ball rejoicing in victory!IMG_8185I had the same feeling when I received my new “Focus Board”.  I have been searching for a couple months now for the perfect solution that is stylish yet functional to host all of the weeks events in one place.  Alas, I found Kimbees Creations shop on Etsy.

I messaged Kim and asked if I could place a special order to her “Motivational / Focus Board” she had posted and within no time she created our custom board.  IMG_8175

Kevin and I sat down and picked out custom quotes, categories and layout.  I emailed Kim to see if we could make it a bit larger and we got a custom proof back from Kim.

The print is 24×36 and I got the reclaimed wood frame at Hobby Lobby using my 40% off coupon.  The print was only $45 dollars – what an amazing price for a custom piece!  She even included a chalkboard marker that we write on the glass with and it cleans off easily with water.

I would HIGHLY recommend this if you are looking for a cleaver way to keep your family organized – especially if your husband is like mine loves lists or if you just have a busy life in general.  You can tell, he was the first one to write on the board – his own illustrations included.

A bit about Kim, the fabulous owner and creator of Kimbees Creations – “I was a stay-at-home Mom for 22 years to my five children. Life changed, and I am now happily married with a large blended family, which includes my five and his two, four of whom are married, and have given us six grandchildren (with two more on the way!). Even though I am now working full time in education, family is my center. All of my creations and designs were originally created for family members, who then encouraged me to start an Etsy site. I continue to add new designs, based upon special requests.”

Huge high five to you Kim and thank you so much – we LOVE our Hall Family Focus Board!
