As my family grows and becomes more seasoned, it’s sort of become a challenge for me to remember everyone’s birthday.
I know my own and immediate family’s birthdays well, but when it comes to cousin’s, aunt’s and uncle’s sometimes those dates just slip my mind. Luckily, Doodles Dots Doodads has a creation that’s able to fix all my date problems, the Birthday Board!!
A Birthday Board is a wooden plaque that’s able to be hung on the wall with the months of the year. Under each month, hang little round wooden circles with the date and name of each person with a birthday during that time.
This nifty creation can be customized to any family and any occasion. All Birthday Boards are hand made using pine by Doodle Dots Doodads and are $75 each. You can choose the colors, fonts and wording for your Birthday Board. The boards come with 30 circles, however if you need more than 30 circles, it’s just an extra $5.00 for each additional set of 25. For me, I have a large family, so we needed 50 circles!
The plaque arrived VERY well packed, which is nice since it’s something you don’t want to be dinged. It comes with eye hooks pre-drilled into the bottom of the board and into each circle for easy hanging. All that’s required of you is writing the dates and names on each circle to be hung on the board. I had a lot of fun doing this!
I personally added some black ribbon to hang it from and chose to paint my circles black to go with the rest of my board. However, the natural color the circles arrived as was very pretty and would have looked nice as well. I also put a number on the back of each circle for the month it went with in case it happened to fall off. After finishing up the dates, just hang them on the board and VIOLA! You have an amazing family keepsake and go to spot for all important family dates.
Doodles Dots Doodads makes it very obvious that a lot of love and care are put into making these creations. Not only do they look stunning on the wall, but they are a great gift idea for any family member! A BIG Fairy A++!
A little about Doodles Dots Doodads from the owner –
Doodles Dots Doodads is a family business we operate out of our home. We try to use recycled and re-purposed materials when possible. Just like us, our wood is not always perfect. Imperfections give our products character. My husband is my right hand man. He cuts and sands all of my wood in his shop. He also helps me think through all my ideas and plans. We take pride in everything we make. ~ Danna Wolters
