I am sitting here peering out my window, anxiously awaiting the snow we've been promised here in the Williamette Valley. I live about 40 miles south of Portland, Oregon where we usually only get snow maybe once or twice a year and it's not often more than a dusting. But the weathermen are saying we'll get hit this afternoon into Friday with 3-4 inches or more. Being a California native who didn't grow up with snow, I am like a little kid when it's in the forecast! Let it snow!
While waiting for my snow this morning I made this sweet little corkboard. I found a really pretty oval frame a few weeks back in a thrift store. Unfortunately the back and frame were molded together so it kind of limits the uses but for $1.00 I couldn't pass it up. Of course it was gold and it got the Heirloom White treament as soon as I got it home.
I had the cork tile in an old computer armoire. When I took it down the corners tore off but it was perfect for cutting down for my frame.
All I had to do was trim it down and press it into the frame, didn't even need glue since it was a snug fit. I added a couple of fluer de lis tacks and a cute postcard from the Graphics Fairy.
The whole project took about 10 minutes! Now I have time to clean my house! (Can you tell what my priorities are?)
