"Clean the Coop!"

Hi Blog Friends!

Long time no hear from, huh?
Life has just gotten busy here, all good, but busy!
And now with Christmas on the way, you can believe it is even busier! LOL
Getting the house ready for Christmas & Friends coming over, you want EVERYTHING just right!

I'm popping in here to post for a few challenges at Simon Says Stamp!
I'll be entering my creations in the 
Work It! Wednesday Challenge for November 2016

I've finally made something that I've had on my mind for sometime,
Dish Washer Magnets!

If you have a dishwasher, then you know sometimes you open the door & wonder, 
"Are they clean? Or are they dirty?"
So, this idea came to me,  & I am tickled to show you....
I purchased these dies awhile back from the Spring Plush Release that Simon had a little while back.
Of course, you can use these dies in any other season too! Don't let the word, "Spring" throw you! ;)

Here they are:
I cut the large circle by hand from Poster Board, tracing the circle from an oatmeal container lid.

I also turned the paper for one chicken upside down when I ran it through my Big Shot,
 so the chicken would turn the opposite direction. 
I just chose printed papers that would match my kitchen.
And the words are done with stencils.
I also laminated the pieces & added magnets to the back.
I was so tickled with how they came out & thought you might like to see them too! 
ESPECIALLY, if you like chickens like we do!
Just maybe, it will give you an idea for a Christmas present for someone,
or you might like them for yourself!

When I run the dishwasher now, I just pull off the chicken that says, "The coop."  That way in the morning, I KNOW there are CLEAN dishes in the dishwasher! And the kids know too!
No more, "Are they clean? Or are they dirty?" ;)

Hope you like & hope you jump in on the challenges at SSS!

Tickled with these cute little chicks!
