In the Craftroom: Drowning in Papers

I don't know about you but there are papers around here. Piles of papers. From school, bills, church papers, renewal slips, artwork by the kids, handouts, and a whole lot of other ones.

I didn't know what to do with them, but after I couldn't find the paper I was supposed to fill out to register Lucy in preschool for next year (i am registering her in both preschool and kindergarden since we haven't made up our mind which she is doing yet).

This wall has been bothering me for a while...

SO I combined them and these...

And got this.

One clipboard for each of us (Eli doesn't really have papers yet...)

Soon all the Christmas cards on the dry erase board will be put into the scrapbook album - but I haven't gotten there yet....So just image that empty (hahahahaha)


And I've always wanted a poster of the Keep Calm one. So I made one myself and printed it off at costco to fit the 12x12 frame I already had. So if you'd like one you could let me know and I'd email it to you. Cause that will make you comment and cause I like you. :)

I'll comment anyway. But I do want a poster. A huge huge one! I'll have to go look around my house and see where I would want it and how big first...
Love the clipboards.

It's a great wall. I put the xmas cards in my craft drawer to do during scrapbook time.

Great wall...I haven't seen that saying on your poster...it's great. Could I have one the same size? Thanks so much!

Is it easy to change the words? I would love one that says "come what may and love it"

I love that! What a great idea...we have papers all over the place and I tend to throw out important ones by accident...ooops. I may have to steal your idea!! Love the poster too, so true!

Tisha said...

Such a smart idea! I do that with all my alterations stuff, but I never thought of doing it with my own papers! Yup, I'm just that smart! And I'd love a copy of the poster!

Well I was gonna comment even before the bribe. Ha ha ha! No but really I love that idea. I hate paper. Paper is for sure my enemy. Paper....is still in that orange bin that I haven't gone through yet. PAPER doesn't not keep me calm at all!!!!!!! But fun posters do. Totally send it my way!
