Crafting...Sort Of

This past weekend I got in a bit of a crafty mood or really just FINALLY got to doing the couple of crafty things I had been thinking about.

I worked the most on transforming my very large white board into a half white board half bulletin board. It isn't quite finished yet but I will be sure to post about it when it is.

My other small project was a neat idea I found Stephmodo where she gave the cutest idea for preserving memories of special occasions and doing that by preserving the sweet and thoughtful greeting cards you receive. Check out the post here to learn the complete how to.

For example I had saved a number of meaningful cards that we received from our wedding and had them all generally in one place but not really together. The idea is to punch a small hole in the corner of each card related to the event and then tie them all together with some ribbon. Then you create a small label to identify the event for which the cards were given.

Whala! You now have a very cute and awesome way to preserve the great memories you have from special occasions in your life. Below are some pics of my not as cute but valiant attempt at this cool idea.


  1. I love this idea, Marisa!! We should get together and craft sometime soon. (Two perfectionists crafting together...could be interesting. :o)
