So, a little background – I ordered my very first FabFitFun box (Spring 2017) and LOVED it! Inside the box, inside the front cover of the magazine they include, was something else I loved – a quote! It said “Let Today Be The Start Of Something New”. I wanted to frame it and have it on display because it is something I have had in the forefront of my mind these past few months. I could hardly believe it was in my box!
The problem was, it didn’t match my bedroom decor and it wasn’t in a size that was easily popped into a frame. SO, I went to work re-designing the quote into something that would look great on my bedroom wall.
I used the blues and yellows from my bedding and created something I LOVE with the same quote, but one that matches and looks great hanging on my wall.
I am sharing this printable with you and hope it can inspire and enrich your life as you display it and look at it regularly. This would also look great sized down and printed as a card for someone you care about.

Menu planning as always been a bit hit and miss for me, but whenever I do it, my week seems to go SO much smoother. And I’ve discovered a cute idea that really helps me get my menu planning act together – a dry erase menu board!
So, I found a 12X12 picture frame at Michaels about 3 years ago that matched my kitchen nicely and it was on clearance! I brought it home and cut out some black vinyl with the days of the week and a “menu” title. I cut it out backward so I could adhere it to the back of the glass and it would read correctly. Then I used a piece of 12×12 scrapbook paper I had on hand and put the frame together. Voila! A dry erase board where I can write our menu each week and have it on display in my kitchen.

I only plan out my supper menu – our breakfasts and lunches are basically set and the kids fix their own. Planning out my supper meals helps SO much. I start on Saturday and take a quick inventory of what we’ve got in the fridge that might need to be used up. I also take a peek in the pantry and freezer as well. I also take a glance at our family’s schedule for the week so I can plan around the busy nights.
Then I look through my cookbook and decide on what we’ll be having and write it down with a dry erase marker. Super easy to change if I need to. Then, I can see well in advance what’s coming up and I can do a grocery shop, and make sure I’ve got the right things defrosted etc. in time for cooking each day.
The best part of menu planning? Leftovers for lunches!!
You can create your own menu board the same way I did, or – if you don’t have access to a die cutting machine, you can download these free printable inserts I created and simply add them to a frame. Boom! Easy menu board in minutes.
You can download either the 12X12 size, or the 8X10 size, depending on how much space you have in your kitchen or what frame you have handy. These boards could also be hung on the wall in your kitchen for easy access – plus, they are so pretty!
As with all my printables – they are designed by me and shared for your personal use. They are not for resale or passing off as your own. Be the cool friends I know you are! Thanks and enjoy your menu board!
