Inspiration Board

Well, I've stumbled upon another challenge...because I have fabulous blog friends who share information like that with me (THANK YOU, Katy of I like to cut and paste!)!!! :) This blog is called LESSology. The theory behind it is to upcycle items and make them into something else. Altering garbage. ;) You know! SOOOOO fun, SOOOOO time consuming, SOOOOO rewarding!!! So, I'll try to participate every once in a while!

The challenge they have for us right now is Inspiration Board. They want you to upcycle something and make it into something that helps you be inspired and be organized. WOW. So, I went shopping. In my junk room!!!

Here's what I found~

And here's what I made it into~

Details~







Okay, so I'm seriously wondering what you all think? It took me about 2 hours to make, and I am really happy and proud about it! I started by painting the tray with a shimmery champagne craft paint, then added the background papers (scraps from other projects), and added all the elements!

The little memo pad is gonna be used to write who I feel INSPIRED to send a card/project to that week, and the scriptures and words are there to remind me of what's important. :) Oh, and yes, I did make those flowers by hand. I've loved to make them, but haven't in a while, so today was the day to start again!!! :) The little Valentines are from a swap years ago from sweet and dear friends--reminders to give and share our talents with others!

Thank you SOOOOO much for stopping by to take a peek at my little project! I hope YOU'RE INSPIRED to come and play along at LESSology! Happy crafting!!!
