Communication Station {a reminder for moms!}

This is a far cry from notes left on beds, kitchen counters, doors etc...but it works like a charm. A while back, I was going through all of my old paints and had some chalkboard paint I was dying to use. SO, the next time I went thrifting, I found the perfect-sized picture. Spayed it, painted the frame{sorta!} and hung it in the bathroom above the TOILET! YEP! That is where our teenagers spend quite a bit of time, so there is no missing a note from family...or friends! The kitchen is a close second, but why not have a bit of fun in the bathroom?!

It has become quite the conversation piece...besides, you never get bored with it because it is constantly changing!

As a mom, nothing puts a smile on my face like reading notes from my family. It reminds me of the priviledge I have as a mom. The responsibility I have before Christ to our children into HIS image. I never want to loose joy in the journey...especially on those days that are tough. You know exactly what I am talking about. :)

How do you communicate with your family? Where do you leave notes? Texting does NOT count!:) What spurs you on in parenting?

Happy, Happy Friday!


  1. What a coincidence! I have a chalkboard post coming up in the near future. I LOVE chalkboards, even if they're the kind you have to paint on. There's nothing like being able to write on the wall! :-)

  2. Oh my, SO CUTE! Love the notes from Rissa and her guy!!! You are so blessed! Love you, friend!

  3. Chalkboard paint is my favourite. : )

    I'm a big card person. I love giving & receiving cards to/from my family, just to say I love you or whatever.

  4. Very clever! When my kids were growing up, we had a marker board in the dining area that got used the same way. We homeschooled, so the dining room was a good place for it. They're grown and on their own now, but sometimes I think it would be nice to have one just for DH and me!

    P.S. Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave a comment. :)

  5. i LOVE your ideas!! now i just need to put them into action =). i hope you keep on sharing!!!
