On the Pot Girl

One thing I've learned while growing up is a saying on the wall is more nagging that a Mom could ever be!! I remember two in particular that my Mom would have hanging on the wall and everyt time I'd pass it I would read it. Even to this day, they still pop into my head!! So that's why I decided to use the same tactics on my kids and created these signs...


The images I used are On the Pot Girl S and On the Pot girl C from Mo's Digital Pencil which are unusual but perfect for the task. ;D I place them inside the parchment paper which is actually an altered version of the Treasure Map digi from Make it Crafty. On the first one, above, I thought it would be fun to draw in push pins only afterwords did I realize the paper curled at the top and it looked silly so I had to alter that corner a little. :D You can see the difference when you look at the second one below.


I'm sure your curious by now... what were the two saying that I remember from my childhood? The first one was in the kitchen and it said "You have two choices for dinner - take it or leave it." The second one was in the family room or hallway and it said "Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without." I'm lucky to have both of them hanging in my own hous today... only after I found out that my Mom hated the reminder just as much as us kids did. LOL


So this is just your friendly reminder... next time you find yourself in the bathroom, make sure you FLUSH the toilet and WASH your hands!! :D

  3. Hi Barbara, love these two bathroom wall hangings! My mother used to have this one in her kitchen: 'This is a self cleaning kitchen: everything that you make dirty, you have to clean up yourself!'
