It's not all my fault...

I have been trying to organize my craft area, I really have. But, you see, I have these two little people who have other ideas.


I did make some progress, though. And when I am finished, I will be sure to snap a picture to prove it. Because we know it won't stay that way long.

This magnetic board is a project I completed last night, and I hung it above my desk. I just took a cheap frame that I already had, and decoupaged paper on a sheet of metal that was cut to fit in the frame. Don't you love that print? It is actually wrapping paper, and when I saw the roll, I had to have it, even though I had no clue how I would use it (besides wrapping, of course). It was perfect for this memory board. 


Finally, I wanted to mention these shirts that Julie made for her kids:



Aren't those adorable?! She based her design off of my tutorial, but I think hers turned out better! See, I said it would have been cuter on a more vibrant colored shirt.

Love your memory board - what a great idea! These would be great in my kids room over their study desks. Your daughters look cute in their fort.

Okay, So I love the idea of the board and I actually just bought one the other day. I had painted it, but needed something else! I was at Hobby Lobby today and saw the exact paper you used! But I have a question. What is decoupage?
Where do I get it?

Tammie,
Decoupage is simply a process of adhering a paper to another object. It is SO easy (which is why I love it)! I use Mod Podge, and you can find it at Hobby Lobby or Walmart in the craft/glue area. I use a foam brush to apply the glue to the metal, then place the paper on top, and apply a final coat of glue on top of the paper sealing it. Happy decoupaging!
