A couple of metal rulers and some cute push pins do the trick.
Think First...  Always a good reminder :)
Any little magnet will do...
This is a little simple idea that works slick in my office/guestroom.
It was kind of hard getting good shots of this.  But I think you get the picture...oh yeah, theyd be great for photos too ;)

I know, I know, in this age of "online pin boards"...which I enjoy very, VERY much by the way...there isn't much need for and old fashioned "Inspiration Board" anymore is there?
But don't you just every once in a while want to rip something out of a magazine or catalog and hang it on the wall like the "old days"?  Sometimes I do...so here is what I came up with...

Pattern or design used: My own design - Laurel Putman...Chipping with Charm

Oh well I am happy in my little world and this is a very neat idea.
