What's on your fridge?


I was getting my breakfast this morning and thought "Man, I need to clean off this refrigerator."

Then I realized it has all this great stuff. It has become a collage of accomplishments.

There is a very detailed fish bowl that Elizabeth made a few years ago at Boys and Girls Club out of perler beads. Hanging next to the fish bowl is a flower for Mother's Day from Kaden that he made in class at church with his picture in the middle.

Caitrin made a card for my birthday in February with the help of her very artistic sister Mikaela. Some of the letters are backwards -- so cute!

There is a Lifeskills Certificate that Brendon earned last school year for "Having a great SENSE OF HUMOR!". Under that is his basketball schedule and a certificate for completing a Junior Achievement program. Mikaela's National Junior Honor Society certificate is hanging at the bottom along with Brendon's "Caught Being Good" certificate and a heart he made for me out of perler beads.

Elizabeth hung her French quiz with 20/20 in red at the top, which shows you're never too old (she's going to college in a few weeks).

Then there's the school calendar, lunch menu, Auston's and Mikaela's orthodontist appointment reminders and more of Caitrin's artwork.

There is so much to be proud of and I couldn't possibly clean it off.

So what's on your fridge?

  1. Only the side of mine is magnetized so pictures held on with magnets. Scripture on magnets.
    The front will get a good report card or a great score on a test.
    We have a huge bulletin board on the smaller wall by the door with Cole and Noah's art work.
    I saw a decorating show that had a great idea called "shrink" art. Take pictures of everything you want - papers, artwork. Put the pictures in a collage form inside a big frame. The pictures were about 5X7. Then put you valued treasures in a saver box while you can still admire them in the frame hanging on the wall. There are many different ways to do it also.

  2. Well, I don't have much there as my kids are grown. Mostly just magnets holding nothing.
    There is one magnetized photo frame with a picture taken in New Hampshire of my cat when he was a kitten. We found him one summer in the woods while we were on vacation.

  3. I have the same thing as Angels, my kids are grown, but I do have some things, on the front, like a magnetized erasable monthly calender, i have some magnets of a few of the places my husband and I have gone, a dear picture of my dog Brandon that passed away, some notes of some sort.

    Cute and fun post!
