Do Something Creative - Everyday

I found that I have a lot of ideas that never come to life because, well, life just gets in the way.  So, to help make those ideas have hope for a reality, I decided I needed a bulletin board to post them so I would not forget about them.  Not only were they forgotten due to the old adage; out of sight, out of mind.  They also were forgotten, because I'm not as young as I used to be. 

And, for my project, I really didn't want to spend any money on it, just because if I decide I don't like it, then it will be easier for me to take it down without guilt.  I had some 12" and 6" corkboard squares I had gotten on clearance forever ago, used some fabric and ribbon I had on-hand, staple gun, and voila.  The bulletin boards looked good, but it needed something. 

So, using  my Cricut Expression and some vinyl I had, I cut vinyl wall words, "Do Something Creative Everyday" to give it a finished look.  The vinyl letters for Do Something Everyday are brown with a little glitter/metallic finish and the word Creative is in a deep plum.  The photo doesn't show how well the plum looks with the brown, but trust me -- looks really great. 

So the bulletin board and the vinyl wall words accomplished two tasks in one.  It gave me a place to start putting all those notes and picture ideas for future projects and it allowed me to do something creative for today. 
That's all there is today from the lil cabin, I hope you have a wonderful evening.  Blessings to you all!
