Pinspiration | Photo Clip Boards
Bro/Sis Craft Day part two took place a few weeks back. I like to throw my bro-in-law some craft challenges when I’m there and this time I thought we’d do a spin on this Photo Clip Board DIY that I pinned on Pinterest awhile back. This amazing DIY comes from Liz of Love Grows Wild. Her project was so awesome I had to try it! Plus I have always been a little impatient with my artwork (I like to change it up all the time) so this was the perfect solution.
She created three separate clip boards, and we decided to do a twist on that. We decided to attach all three vertically using 4-3/4″ x 5/32″ turnbuckle eye/hook screws and 1 ” S-hooks. For the top, we attached some small ground wires that we found in the garage. I really like the combination of industrial and natural. Call us crazy!
Now onto the artwork…the top art print is Feathered Arrows, from Minted.
The middle print is one of my absolute favorites, William Rides His Bike by Ez Pudewa. I LOVE elephants so this makes me smile every time I see it!
And the bottom art print is Landscape of Triangles and Dots, also from Minted.
It turned out so amazing. :) Thanks to my bro-in-law for letting me take over his garage and tools. And special thanks for the pinspiration Liz!

Pinspiration | Marimekko Craft Tablecloth
I don’t know about you…but I don’t have a designated craft room in my home. I am limited on space so I end up doing my projects all over the place…on the couch, at the table, at my desk, on the floor, on the bed, etc. I inevitably end up making a total mess.
This way of crafting came to a head when I inadvertently shellacked the corner of my dining room table. Uh oh. I knew then that I had to figure out a better way of doing this or I’d end up ruining all my furniture, my carpet and everything else along with it. It was then that I decided I needed a easy-to-clean tablecloth to put over my precious dining room table.
I first went to my neighborhood fabric store and found some great oilcloth. I began debating the patterns in my head until I discovered this amazing Marimekko PVC coated fabric online. I knew that this was the one that will take me through many years of crafting! The bright colors will make me smile every time I bring it out.
Then after months of debating on how I wanted to create the edge on the tablecloth I found this DIY post by Susan Phillips from Livingwithpunks, on Momtastic. Her tablecloth DIY was brilliantly edged using jumbo ric-rac! I knew this was my inspiration! Thanks for the inspiration Susan!
Check out her post for all the instructions! But in the meantime, check out a few photos of my process!
Someday I’ll get my own craft room …but until then I’ll try and contain myself to making a mess that is easy to clean. Bring on the glitter!
