Our Consistancy Wall

I try really hard to be organized, but usually if I plan it, something else happens. :) But with my girls I really wanted to get on a small schedule to where they would expect to do at least something the same every day. I was struggling with what to do and how to do it until a friend shared this with me: Cassie & Co.

I thought that seemed simple enough and I really liked the idea of intentionally praying for a person every week. So I printed and cut and laminated....

I cut out paper shapes and arranged them on the wall to make sure I knew what I had pictured in my head....


Keith cut wood for me...


And I glued batting to it....


I took my leftover fabric from another project, that I have still yet to post on, and covered the squares. I tried to use a staple gun, but it was too "powerful" so I went through a ton of hot glue!


Finally, we got to put it all together. God bless my patient husband who did a lot of the hanging.

On the far left, we have the Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow chart and below it is our weather chart (this has been Carli's favorite so far).

In the middle, is our address and phone number page. I did fill this in finally but we really haven't got over it a lot. It'll come with time.

On the far right, is our Alphabet Memory Verse.
This is one of my favorites. I also have a copy of these to keep on the table to go over while we eat. We are now on "B" and Carli can say them both very well, she just likes to whisper them!



In the middle, we keep a picture of the family or person we are praying for that week. This is really neat. Carli already is more aware of other people and what they might need God to help them with! Pretty cool how kids teach you things.

The far right, our calender...


To finish out our "space," I finally got around to cleaning up a project I had screwed up last December. These are from Pottery Barn and I got them on Craiglist. I had gotten two and sanded each down and painted them black. I then put a crackle on it and when I woke up on Christmas morning to go out and wrap them up - the crackle had dried flaky and cloudy. I was very upset. So nine months later, I got over it and re-sanded one to put to good use in our play room!

The final product

We have done really well sticking to this. We started three weeks ago. We stayed on the letter "A" for two weeks b/c I had to work out of town all week one week so I was afraid the "circle time" wouldn't get done. But with the help of Sassy it did! Overall, I have to say that I am pretty pleased with this wall in the playroom and even more so now that Carli sometimes asks if we can go do "circle time!"
