Altered Clip Boards

March was a month of travel and celebration, as I celebrated my 50th birthday. It was filled with lots of heart-felt fun, and thank you to everyone who wished me a happy day, and made my day great.

Still, it does feel good to be back making a big mess on my work table, getting my fingers sticky with glue, and sharing my creations with you.

Yes, I use clipboards. Nerdy, clipboards, but as you see.......mine are pretty. They are altered, vintage inspired, and blinged.  The collage surface is modge podged for a smooth, wipe-able surface.

I use clipboards to hold my papers, bills, and even scraps of paper for crafting. 

Seam binding, charms, and a key are added, and of course, vintage jewels.

Happy Belated Birthday!!!!! It sounds like your surrounded yourself with friends, family and love.

I love your clipboards. Too cute and I love all the little touches...i.e., old pattern pieces, bits and bobs, etc. You rock! Happy Spring Ya'll from Houston, TX
