Here's a great post she did just last week and I begged her to let me repost it over here:
Ballard Designs inspired bulletin board … from a diaper box and an old movie
I have a problem. A big, big problem.
I’m an obsessive crafter and DIYer with a very short attention span. That means I have several large bins full of half-finished and non-even-started projects that keep piling up.
Toss a layoff and a lousy economy into the mix and I decided that now was a great time to stop spending money on anything and everything crafty-DIY-projecty until I used up what I already had on hand.
No money. No shopping. No problem.
But, I also realized that as long as these projects were tucked away, I’d keep forgetting about them and never finish.
So what to do?
I saw these in the Ballard Designs catalogue and knew this would be a perfect way to keep visual track of everything.
The only problem was that I didn’t have an extra magnet or bulletin board on hand that I could recover with fabric.
(FROM DIAPER BOX TO BULLETIN?!!--check below and then link up to her site)
They were package in two layers of cardboard. Hmmmm.
I didn’t have any large, random sheets of cardboard lying around the house, but I did have plenty of these …
This project showed me that the ability to fuel my passion to create has nothing to with dollars and everything to do with attitude.
I choose to THRIVE.
Now all I need is a brilliant idea for some cute bulletin board hangers.
