I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Santa was good to all. I was one spoiled girl after I told my hubby we wern't doing presents for each other this year. Under my tree was a Cricut with all the fix ins. I can't wait to open it up and start using it. I have so many ideas running through my mind. I have a feeling that 2010 is going to be a VERY crafty year. I'm in the process of moving my craft area from the cold, dark spider infested basement to upstairs just off of our master bedroom. I'm trying to find unique ways to store all my crap without breaking the bank. So far I've collected mason jars big and small and purchased some handy wicker baskets.
Anywho I've been wanting to share my magnetic message board with everyone. I'm going to make one of these for my craft area as well. All you need is a frame of your choice and some galvanized panning which can be found at any home improvement store- I found mine at Home Depot. Take the glass out of your frame and trace around the edge of it onto your galvanized panning. Take some tin snips and cut along the line. Be very careful as the metal is VERY SHARP. I wore work gloves while doing this. Place the metal into your frame and Voila. Now you have a reason to make some of those funky clothes line clips like the ones below found at Blue Cricket Designs.
If your looking for a board that looks more finished try covering it with burlap like this cute one found at Out of Chaos.
Or covered with fabric like this very chic one found at monicamccoy.blogspot.com/.
