My New Pegboard


I can be an "out of sight, out of mind" kind of girl. This is certainly true when it comes to my craft supplies. I can easily forget what I have, if it is not in plain view. I am currently in the process of revamping my craft space to include more open and/or see-through storage solutions. While this may look a little more cluttered than closed storage solutions (i.e. boxes, baskets, drawers, etc.), I am finding a good mixture of both that will suit my needs. Enter, the pegboard...


I purchased the 2' x 4' pegboard from The Home Depot. Although it came in a natural brown color, you can also purchase it in white, which will save you a step in creating this board. I chose to paint the board since I wanted a nice, bright white color, and saved some money from buying the ruddy, already painted white board. I spray painted the trim and corner blocks in a beautiful Lagoon color, which matches my craft space very nicely. I also painted the outside and handle of the middle bucket you see in the photo. Here are a few close-ups of the board...



My decorative scissors, all neatly lined up.


CTMH paper samples to use for cards, and some random packaged items that I would like to use up.


Over-sized ribbon spools which did not fit in my ribbon holder, crafting tools, and glitter (hiding in the green bucket).

Over all, I am very happy with the way the pegboard turned out! I may switch it around again soon, but it works for me the way it is right now. This project was fairly simple to create and adds a nice touch to my craft space. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that it sits on the wall behind a door. It is a good use of the small space that I had left on the wall, after my craft furniture took up the majority of the space. I definitely want to keep the door closed when I am in the room, so that I can look at this pretty board!

Thanks for looking!

Suzanne.

Valentine's Day Card




Here is a quick shot of the Valentine's Day card that I made for my sweetheart. The arrows and banner were cut with my Cricut machine using the "Creative Holiday Cards" cartridge. All papers, stamps, and inks are from Close To My Heart. I didn't take a picture of the inside, but the caption reads, "Arrow you going to be my Valentine?" Adorable!
