Scrabble Magnet = 830 points

Oooft, Monday again!  How did that happen?

This weekend was spent dodging thunderstorms, playing with the little man and watching the Grammys (still got it Johnny, still got it!).  Busy, busy, busy.  In between this hectic schedule, I did manage to squeeze in a quick project or two.

I was mooching around Dollar Tree when I stumbled upon this little treat.  Ignore all the bright colors and weird vent cover nonsense, ultimately it's a magnetic sheet.  For $1.  In the basket it went.

I decided to try and make a dishwasher "clean/dirty" magnet using an old Scrabble set I'd picket up a few months ago from a flea mall.  I'm not sure where the inspiration came from but really, nobody likes poking around in the dishwasher to see if its packed with clean or dirty dishes.  Guaranteed to end in a ketchupy finger. 

I cut a slice of the magnetic vent cover sheet and hot glued the clean/dirty scrabble tiles. 

Ta da!

And shock horror, it's actually being used!!

  2. I love this idea! I'd have to find a scrabble game first. I'm not willing to part with mine =)

  3. Very useful and decorative too. Now, what else are you going to use the magnetic sheet for? I'll be interested to see what you dream up next.

  4. This is seriously cute and thrifty too! No more wondering if they are clean or dirty. Thank you so much for sharing at Pretty Things this week :)

  5. Cool idea. So creative. I am hosting a link party and would love it if you would link up.

  6. Love this! We had a magnet for our church dishwasher, but this is much cuter! Found you at Hookin' up with the HOH!
