Inspired

I was inspired by The Nester a couple weeks ago. Well, I'm inspired by her on a daily basis, but I loved this idea...it is the cutest memo board with ribbons. It's something different than just the normal cork board. My sister-in-law, Amy has been doing lots of redecorating and reorganizing. In the process, she has made lots of fabulous changes to the kid's rooms. Tressie has a fun girlie room. It has lots of bright colors (lime green, pink, turquoise, orange and maybe something I'm missing). I sent her the link to the post above and told her to check out the memo board that I thought it would be perfect in Tressie's room. One look and she was also hooked. I told her we could get the stuff and I would make it. On Thursday, I had a Pampered Chef party at my mother-in-law's house and Amy gave me the stuff for the board. This morning I got up and couldn't wait to get started on it. It really was super easy! I didn't use the same stuff that The Nester used because...well...I'm not The Nester. ha! Plus we wanted something that would be light weight so Tressie could take it off the wall if she wanted too. The board was also super cheap....that's always a bonus!



I think it turned out super cute! I just need to add some mini-clothes pins and it will be complete. It will look perfect in Tressie's room!! I can't wait to see it there and also to see her reaction. It looks a bit crooked, but that's because it's slanted on the chair. That top green ric rac ribbon was a bit crooked and I fixed that right after I looked at this picture. I just didn't make time to take anymore pictures.

What do you think?
