Creativity is...

The start of school is just around the corner. I'm always looking for ways to organize, simplify, and, of course, display the fun projects my kids bring home.  My refrigerator doesn't have much room, and often doesn't do their projects justice.  Hopefully this will:

My husband builds things, and makes things, and repairs things, so there's always scrap wood lying around.  I had him cut a board that was about 3 1/2" tall to a little over 2' long (I actually held my hands apart and said, "I want it about this ____ long." Which makes him roll his eyes!).  I painted it with some leftover whitewash from my bulletin board project

 I used my Silhouette to cut the words from Basic Grey's Bowties paper and attached them with Ultra Thin Glue Dots®. 

 I used mini clothespins from Little Yellow Bicycle. I especially loved these for this project because they have words on them like, "love" and "wonderful".  I decided to stain them a blueish color (not shown in the picture above, but you can see it in the picture below) with Lindy's Stamp Gang T-bird Turquoise Flat Fabio Mist. I attached them with Glue Lines from Glue Dots®.

Now all I have to do is get my husband to hang it on the wall, and I've got a great place for my kids to display their work!

Thanks for stopping by.

I wrote this post while on the Glue Dots® Design Team.
