This month’s Silhouette promo (begins tomorrow) is on all their specialty media like printable canvas, magnet paper, tattoo paper, foil, adhesive cardstock and more.  My 2nd grade son is currently learning the 50 states in school.  I thought cutting out a blank USA map on some magnet paper would help him learn his states quicker.  Let me tell you…it is helping me learn too.  Apparently my US geography sucks since my husband had to put the puzzle together initially. #geographyfail

Key Holder Rack Makeover Makeover

I found this magnetic memo board with hooks in the trash 3 years ago and made it over in black and red to go with our then color scheme.
