DIY Memo Board  


Hello everyone, Wendy here today to share a project I’ve been dreaming up for a while… I took a cheap baking pan and transformed it into a memo board with the help of the PinkFresh Studio Office Hours collection.



I have wanted to try this idea for a while as a Memo board, What’s for dinner board, or even a Chore chart.  I began by creating magnets with the small memo papers trimmed from the 6x6 paper pad.  I layered the chipboard pencils from the collection on top of the memo papers to add to the theme of a Memo board.



I wanted to create clips to use to clip additional notes; to do this I used the chipboard binder clips and added magnets to the backs.  Perfect magnets for any items I might need to remember in our busy lives!



A few stickers from the collection allowed me to dress up my memo board and add some fun details.


The final touches were a title/sentiment to add life to our hectic lives which I layered over the stickers I added in the last step.  My title came from the Pink Paislee collection Truly Grateful which matched perfectly!



Any item can be altered to create Your Own Magic, and now I need to go hang our memo board up by our doorway so that we can begin to use this handy tool!

DIY Wood Ornaments  


Are you ready for the easiest wood ornaments ever? These will just take a few minutes to make, and can add a cute farmhouse look to your Christmas tree! Here is what I used:








Any white paint will work (or silver would look great too!), any mod podge will work, (I used Distress collage medium), and choose your favorite glitter. It can get a little messy, but turn on the Christmas music and have some fun with it! Paint some ornaments white, and leave some plain. Mod podge on a doily or two, and then add your glitter. Easy peasy cute ornaments. Get your kids to make some too!





Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're inspired to make some ornaments this holiday season!
