DIY Pin Board

It's no secret that I love Pinterest
but, I've always wanted a tactile inspiration board for myself too.

My sister & I decided to head out to the craft store and make some for ourselves.
We picked out some old, pretty frames and purchased a roll of cork board.
We simply removed the backing to the frame and replaced it with the cork.

Mine now hangs in my hallway.

I'm easily inspired by:

old family photos
blue & greens
my daughter's poetry
a cute family of bears
Abe Lincoln quotes

What gets your creative juices flowing?  :-)


  1. You're getting my creative juices flowing Jenny! I just love looking at all your beautiful work. I especially love blues and greens as well. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog to visit and for your kind comments. I'm having so much fun with my watercolours!

  2. sweet, jenny. love that you did this. abe makes me happy. old family pictures are the best along with dear words from loved ones. that flag bunting is adorable.

  3. thank you both! i have always loved quotes ever since I was a kid. I inherited a big book of them from my grandmother. they're like little gems of wisdom.

  4. Dear Jenny your sketch book is really too much inspired and appreciate to me. I like it too much. Looking awesome and gorgeous. You grant some creative image and idea to us. Thanks a lot for share. i love it too much. Nice sharing.

  5. I love your creative inspiration board. I love the little watercolor of the cockatiel. I have one just like that - his name is Birdy Boy and I've had him for over 15 years now. That photo of the bears is just too cute. Love your artwork. xx
