New Whiteboard

I've seen this Idea a couple of time and I really liked it so this time I decided to try it. I found the idea here, but it's a link to a link to a link, so I decided to do a mini tutorial on it. It's not very hard to do really

(Although, theirs are much cooler than mine, and I'm still not sure I like my fabric choice. I may change it soon)

1. Find an old picture frame (with the glass in it).
I found mine at DI

2. Sand it and paint it

3. Cover the backing, or picture that was in it with your choice of fabric.
The other tutorials said to just glue gun the fabric onto the back, But Tyson had some spray on adhesive I wanted to try. It worked great so I guess any way you want to do it

4. Then put it together.
Place the glass in the frame, then put your fabric-covered backing onto the glass and voila

You will actually be writing on the glass and it works just like a regular white board. When I switch my fabrics I'll post another pic and maybe you'll be more excited :)

Pass the Piggies

For a family reunion they were having a craft auction to raise money for the next year's reunion and I found this tutorial and I had to make it. I used to play this game all the time growing up. It was a fast project and very satisfying in the end.
