prettier than your average kitchen wipe-board

Well, I think so anyway :o)

We use a wipe-board in our kitchen for meal plans and to do lists but it's so ugly - it looks out of place amongst all of the pretty pink and blue!

I found an empty clip-frame whilst tidying the other day and was debating what to do with it - I've never been a huge fan of clip frames, they just 'do the job' really. And that's when I thought of doing this:

Get the wrapping paper out and some co-ordinating papers and ribbon and then have a bit of fun putting it all together.

I wanted to create different sections for different messages. It worked out better than I was expecting - I even surprised myself! So if you're not impressed with this then I just don't know HOW to please you! Although saying that, I have done something very cool with my guitar case. That might impress you. It's very cool.

Do you have any idea how tricky this was to photograph? I love how you can see the mannequin in the reflection of the green circle in the picture above.

Oh and I've started making another sock monkey. It's like an addiction!

+Edited 6th April. If any of you make your own kitchen wipe board, leave the link to it in the comments so that I can have a little lookey. Let's make our kitchens pretty!

  5. JUST FOR Psalm 25:

    15 Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
    16 Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
    17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.
    18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins. YOU. You and the Mr Have a good weekend. love POD.
