I have a mid year's resolution (like a new year's one but just 6 mths late!). I want to be more organised and I knew I needed a tool or two to help me achieve my goal. I love "To Do" lists but find that the paper variety just don't work for me, I jot down notes on them, they get messy as I cross jobs off. A white board would work, but I don't have a handy wall to hang one on, not where I would see or easily reach it. My solution was to make one out of a picture frame.
The Beau Château DSP has a sheet with a lovely flourish in the top corner and lines all down the page, perfect for the task at hand. I used my paper trimmer to cut it to size, and then did some fancy cutting around the flourish. I added another sheet of the Beau Château DSP behind this, choosing a soft pattern in Blushing Bride. The "To Do" is done using the Junior Type Alphabet dies. The glass in front makes a perfect surface to write my list on, and with a whiteboard pen the jobs I do wipe straight off - the pen sits in the Blushing Bride tube you can see attached to the front of the frame - no losing the pen now! Best of all it sits near my desk nice and handy but not in the way.
I decorated the front of the frame with three flowers, two made from the Fancy Flower punch and the larger one from the Blossom Punch. On the inside of each is a single layer punched using the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.
It is really nice to make something just for me, and it was so easy to do I might even make myself another one for my work desk!
