Well, it was the first day back at work today, after my lovely 11 day break. Hearing that alarm clock this morning was no fun! The day wasn't too bad, though, and at least it's only a four day week this week!
Back in March I showed you a glimpse of the notice-board I had made and said I would one day show you the full thing. Well, the time has come!
Unfortunately I don't have elegant fancy things pinned/pegged to it - I'm just not that classy!
To make it... I bought a normal cork notice-board, and (with Rohan's help!) removed the top of the frame to remove the cork part. I covered that with the pink spotty fabric, and the two strips of green ribbon, and we put the frame back together around it. I used a hot glue gun to attach the little silver pegs to the ribbon. This way things can be pegged to the board in the top section, or pinned on the bottom section with my home-made fabric covered drawing pins!
I love my pins! There are a few more there than I showed you last time. A bit more of a multi-coloured bunch! (I also make bigger fabric-covered magnets for fridges or magnetic notice-boards, which you can see/buy here. There are some pretty colour combinations available).
I wasn't sure whether to paint the frame. I haven't done, but it might be something I do at some point!
