Welcome to the

For those of you that follow my blog, you know that most of my projects are pretty quick, fairly versatile and very inexpensive. 
With summer winding down, and a busy fall season just around the corner, I decided to make a small white board I could put on my fridge to remind me of some upcoming events that I'm looking forward to, like.....
 I started out thinking I was going to cute up this little whiteboard that I got from our bank when they had a grand opening for their new building.

Unfortunately, the pen was not a whiteboard marker.  Don't know what that was about, but anyway, I needed a change of plan.  I had a chalk marker and a piece of adhesive chalkboard vinyl that a friend gave me, so I figured it was time for my first chalkboard project.
Now I love Freedom Bank, but their logo just doesn't match my decor, so I got out my scissors, cut off the logo, trimmed down the chalkboard vinyl to fit, removed the pen holder, then got out my washi tape and trimmed the edges out.
Now it's looking a little cuter and I haven't spent a dime on this project.  I used a strip of magnetic tape that I cut in half and fastened on the marker to make it stick to my fridge so it will always be handy.
 You can see that I have some fun things coming up on my schedule.  I've decided to use it for only the fun things.  That way when I'm feeling overwhelmed, all I have to do is look at it and I'll be cheered up!  
Thanks for stopping by the Inspiration Cafe today and don't forget to come by again next Monday to see what Sherry from Pondered Primed Perfected {P3} has been doing.  You can bet it will be something special.


  1. The chalk board turned out really cute with the washi tape! Can't wait to see what the pallet project is all about.

  2. OK, that was so much easier than I had super easy. What a fun and easy project. And, I am in agreement, I can't wait to see your pallet project :)

  3. I love your inspiration chalk board! That is a great idea to put up a list of things to look forward to. Not only does it remind you of fun times coming up, but it REMINDS you of up coming fun things to do!!! I could use one of these.

  4. Love this. Super cute idea, Danni!! Aaaaand I chuckled to see that Pallet Project deadline on your list :) Woo-Hoo! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. HUGS!

  5. So cute, so cute. I'll bet it just makes you smile having it on your fridge. Seeing fun things to do in the future would be great on a day one might be feeling down. I think I will have to come up with something like that. You are one talented lady.
