The bane of my existence

I know I'm not alone.  Even my Prince two said very seriously one day,"I'll be doing laundry till my death."  Oh yeah, he really said that. And he's eight! 

You've seen those very cute laundry signs in stores. I suppose they are someone's attempt to make the chore more pleasant.  Sure.   I liked the phrase in one of them, so I "borrowed" it and made my own.



This is a canvas that I had purchased on sale a long time ago.  I painted it with chalkboard paint (four coats) and added personal touches.  I painted the baseball shirts my sons had that season, and a shirt my daughter loved that said "love the Earth."  The socks appear mismatched-but not on purpose. Since they always are in real life, it works somehow! 

I added a couple of flowers that I love (and want to put on everything I make lately!), and some very tiny black buttons.

Back to the real laundry...

  2. Cute! And I'm right there with you on the loathing of laundry. Our new place has a wonderful luxury - a laundry chute. The problem is I still haven't discovered the existence of laundry elves to actually make it clean and bring it back up!

  5. With six family members and a farm, would you believe I do 10-15 full sized load a week!The sign is cute, but I think the ideal laundry room sign would have an attachment that dispenses chocolate!
    It wouldn't take the dirty clothes away, but it would help with my attitude!

  7. If my laundry looked like that, I might actually enjoy going there. As it is, I run in and out as quickly as possible, throwing clothes in the air as I go.
