A Clock

My Mom was in town this weekend. We don't often have time to ourselves without an agenda, so it was nice to spend 4 days with her just doing whatever we wanted to! We went shopping, did some baking, ate lots of meal out, went to a concert and rested.

But we also did some much needed things around my house. My mom is a super-organizer. She always says she wished she could organize for a job, but now I am lucky enough to get her skills free of charge! She organized my pantry and refrigerator. They look awesome and now I can actually see what I have in there. I don't think I need to go grocery shopping any time soon!

I was also able to complete a project I had been thinking about for a little bit. I had this blank wall in my living room once I rearranged the furniture. Nothing I currently had decor wise looked good there so I had to come up with something inexpensive and fairly large to take up the space.

I got to thinking that we needed a new clock because the one we had wasn't working anymore. But clocks are expensive and I would need a pretty big one. So off to Hobby Lobby I went and was able to buy all the pieces I would need for a clock for about $10!

I cut out the numbers with my Cricut machine and put them directly on the wall. To assemble the clock, I just used a piece of round wood with a hole drilled in the middle for the hands to go and followed the assembly directions on the clock mechanism from there.

I think it turned out really nice. The hardest part was spacing the numbers right, but I used a string and a thumb tack to help me trace a circle on the wall and that worked pretty well!

Now I have a awesome clock that can come down any time I want it to- and it was only $10!!
