I got my craft on

Well Sunday night after I began to feel better I found a burst of energy and decided to make use of it.  I got crafty.  I’d been seeing these cute message boards made from windows around the blog universe and remembered that I had an old window in my basement just itching for a purpose. 

So here’s the finished result…..

I used glue dots to attach scrapbook paper to the backs of the window panes.  The letters and the ribbon trim are all attached to the front.  As you can tell the paper wasn’t quite big enough and I tried to use another sheet to fill it to the top of the pane, but didn’t really like that…. so just went with the border at the top.  I’ve been able to write on the glass with a vis a vis marker – dry erase might work.  It’s going to be the perfect place to keep all our family stuff organized and I love that if I want to change it up it’s pretty simple to remove the paper and letters and start from scratch.
What do you think?  Not bad for a last minute recovering from strep project, huh?
