making memories.....

I have been wanting to create a memory board for my daughter for some time now....finding the right frame was the first thing on my list. Thrift stores are a perfect place to find inexpensive picture frames. 

Once you find just the right frame you will need to take it apart to prepare your frame for some lively paint. I sanded the frame to prepare the frame and gave it a lovely, fresh coat of white spray paint.

You can use chicken wire or a lightweight gauge fencing wire....I used some wire that my parents had laying around the farm.  Cut your wire to fit the inside groove of your frame and staple in place on the backside.  Add some cute clips or clothespins....and viola' have an instant memory board for your office, bedroom or kitchen. I was lucky enough to find a package of vintage white plastic clothespins for a really cute look. Now it's just time to fill it up with inspiring items.

a little bit of this....a little bit of that.....

As school has resumed it seems like I have been busier than ever.....doing a bit of this....and a bit of that. My sweet pea's birthday is next week and I have been busy making some spa robes for each attending girl for my sweet pea's spa themed birthday party.

Busy making vintage fabric napkins.....

Painting the our newest shade that has made it's way to our bathroom.

Found some nifty vintage decals and added them to some recycled pickle jars.

And covered some cube storage bins for some fab storage in my studio space. I am working on adding more Halloween goodies to my shop soon.....stay tuned.
