My latest project





I thought I would share my lastest craft project. I needed a cork board to use for the kids memorizations that come home weekly. Last year I was always behind helping with Bible verses because I'd have to search through binders and bookbags to keep track of the sheets of paper with all that info on it. This year I vow to stay on top of that by keeping it all on a cork board on the fridge. But, not any cork board would do, oh no, not in my kitchen. It had to be pretty and cost less then 5.00! Impossible you say? Well I first stopped at Goodwill for the corkboard. They always have them there for a dollar or so and I found one with a natural wood frame just the right size for the fridge. Next, a stop at Michaels for some picture frame molding, two peices for 1.29 each and I was on my way. I attached the molding to the frame with some craft glue and outside we went for a coat of antique white spray paint. A little black ribbon, some magnets on the back and VOILE! a perfect board for the fridge! What do you think?

Getting organized is half the battle! I can do it when I put my mind to it, but I always, always do better when I get organized first. Your cork board is a great idea! Also, a little birdie noticed the changes you made to your blog so far! Much better! It's great to know your name Becky, now just tell me which one is you in that picture of all those cute nurses!
