Collage Recycled Mags Into a Sign You Can't Ignore

Just started this project this evening. Ever forget to brush your child's teeth, or put on sunscreen, or pack backup snacks, or or or or... over and over and over again? I realized I forget bedtime tooth brushing about twice a week. Hey, unless it's bath night (every other night) bathroom things don't always enter my head at bedtime. Why would they? I'm so focused on winding down, reading stories, cleaning Otto's room, pajamas, desitin, trying to score some cuddles, and on and on and on....

But his pearly whites are so gorgeous! Wouldn't you die for gleaming white brand new teeth like your kids'? (On a side note, if I ever win the lottery I'm immediately getting a full set of veneers.) Otto's beautiful pearls must be protected; being flakey at bedtime is no excuse!

So, I'm making a collage sign to hang over O's crib that says "Brush Teeth". So far it's coming out pretty cute and it'll be free (just using old magazines and glue I had on hand).

The font I use that makes excellent letter outlines for the collage to fit in is called "Milk Cocoa (sRB)". Love it.


We did a larger version of this same idea a few months back for a friend of Otto's and created a laminated placemat with his name collaged. Such a great, free gift - thoughtful, unique, and adorable!

ps. work in progress - I know it looks cruddy right now but there's a hint of future cuteness, right? I'll post a pic of the final sign when I'm done - hopefully before tomorrow night!

Looks like a ransom note.

Of course, these upcoming video game deals for Game - Stop may sound
sweet but as of this report, they're yet to be confirmed.
There are actually variations of gaming that
might appeal to you, like console gaming, mobile gaming, or
PC gaming. The options available are both ethnic and gender helpful so there's something for anyone you can use within Combat Biceps and triceps.

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless think
of if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more,
"pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could definitely be one of the
very best in its field. Great blog!

Hey there would you mind letting me know which webhost you're working with?
I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?

Thanks, I appreciate it!
