61  RAINBOWTASTIC TASK MONITOR!! in CHALLENGE 24 ENTRIES by string theory on: February 04, 2008 02:44:22 PM
Since the birth of our second child, I have been trapped in survival mode; neglecting the laundry, waiting until the last utensil is dirty to do the dishes... ect. My resolution this year is to get out of the funk and get myself and my house back on track. Personally, I enjoy the planning phase of cleaning much better than the action phase and can spend many a glorious hour creating a very lovely to do list that never gets utilized and eventually ends up with its counterparts in the garbage. So, I decided to craft a reusable task monitor to track my progress though out any given day.
here it is in it's final state:

I started with an old canvas whose subject matter was disposable and mod podged some pictures cut from magazines

Then, I sliced slots with a trusty blade and taped pockets to the back to prevent the cards from falling out.

I also constructed a handy pocket to house the extra cards

Than, I wrote various chores and household duties on the cards and arranged them into slots according to what day I felt that I would want to do them.
I also made big, bold X's on the back of all the cards so that when I succeeded in accomplishing a task, I can flip the card over and bask in the glorious satisfaction that a large x provides.

The great thing about this project, was that I didn't have to buy a single thing! I just used some of my hoarded objects.
So, I am confident, that with my new creation, I can regain control of my household!
