This past Christmas, as a Christmas gift, I was given two lovely scrapbooks and scrap booking paper, so I came to the conclusion that the tickets, cards, pictures, post cards and etc., would have to be taken down from my scrapbooking memo board and put into my new scrapbooks. That meant, the memo board hanging in my living room needed a drastic make over! So for weeks now, I have been trying to figure out what to decorate my memo board with and for the past few days an idea has been forming. I choose to make a “Things I love” theme for my memo board. Today, I put up quotes, pictures that had no particular belonging anywhere, a post card, a book mark, and other pretty things that I love onto my board. I am not 100% pleased with my results but I figured I would post what I have done this far and share my ideas about it!
Here is what came out of my idea:
Not too bad…
Maybe my board just needs a few touches to it… really I believe that that is all that it needs. Of course, I have no desire in having it come out overdone either!
I am, however, pleased with the idea of saving a little space on the board to have a daily new “pin up”. Every day I will use this little space to share a quote, song lyric, movie line or whatever. I’ll share with you what today’s “pin up” was…
Don’t give up what you want most,
for what you want now”
Pretty good advice, especially for having found it online!!!
I hope this helps you decide what to do with an unused memo board! I got a lot of inspiration online (the quotes are from the internet)… just grab inspiration from everything you can so it can help you get your creative juices flowing! Get inspired and then add your own “zest” to it! Add you’re own flare, touch, talent, knowledge or whatever tool you have to your benefit!
Sometimes creativity is something that can be applied to everyday life. It can be small and simple but it’s intent isn’t always to receive applause or to be awarded a blue ribbon… sometimes it’s intent is more humble than that. Maybe sometimes it’s intent is to make a smile, touch a heart, inspire a new hope or to just add a little joy to the everyday. Sometimes, the “little things” all added up at the end of a long life are more important than we think, in the end; because it taught us to appreciate the little things and to take nothing and turn it into something. Whimsical fun retrains are brains to have a refreshing and joyful outlook on life.
Hope this inspires something in you! 😀
