Hey there, ho' there…how are our peacocks today? Thank you for joining me for my project today.  Before we get to it, I have a few admissions…. I HATE to be disorganized… I like my home to run like a finely tuned machine. I have a husband, a 14 year old son, a 10 year old daughter, 2 adult children, 1 grandchild, 2 dogs and a cat…. ANY freaking idea how long it has been since my home has run like a finely tuned machine?  LOL…(me either!).  Moreover, my two kids at home live part-time with us, and part-time with…well…”the one we do not speak of”…so it’s even more difficult to communicate on a daily basis. I have tried the gammet of household communication techniques…neither of the two have text devices, sticky notes lost are blamed on “the cat”…enter Charlie Brown teacher noises here…something to the tune of “wah wah…wah wah wah wa..”  So… I have made a family communication board with the help of Pinque Peacock!  (Enter second admission here)….I hate…HATE…LOATHE…will scratch my eyes out at the site of…. office and organizational supplies that look like office and organizational supplies! I stopped working at an office long ago. I left the land of sticky notes, dry erase meeting boards, magnetic calendars, etc. to stay home with my family… not to indoctrinate my home into that world.  I love organizational supplies….I just want them to be…”homey.”  (harder than it looks). For this project I took $10 worth of supplies and turned it into a world of peace and sanctuary for me.  It starts with a chalkboard paint covered cookie pan…the cheapest one ever… the ones that make that awful noise the minute you put them into the oven… the ones that you are AFRAID to bake things on.  I painted it with chalkboard paint…

THEN, I found, OMG, OOOHHH MY GAWWDDD, the most awesome sauce
CORK initials…so I got one for each member of my family.  I decorated them to match my décor (which, duh… includes crackle).  
They have magnets on the back, so… not only are they mini bulletin boards… they are magnets!  I picked a Pinque Peacock stick pin for each as our “thumbtacks” (I HATE thumbtacks and pushpins!

Then, I picked some felt poppers and buttons, attached magnets, and wrapped them in Hemp twine (which is my pull it all together medium”)  I actually used the twine to reinforce the bond between the buttons and poppers and magnets.  I added a few river rocks…well…because my whole kitchen is stone…stone floor, stone counters, stone walls, blah blah blah.  I added grommets and twine at the top, and VOILA’ a kitchen communitcation center!  And you know how I know it works?  After these pics….I now have a note that my 10 year old needs bodywashed…pinned stylishly with my Pinque Peacock pin to my “L” (cuz well…I gather things for the family…I am the “gatherer”)  So yeah… It works. Do it… Do it NOW.  I am more organized tonight than I have been in 6 years.  Whew.  

Thanks so much for viewing my project…Pick up your
Pinque Peacock products today…and ORGANIZE your life!
