{to put a pin in}


I have had this idea for this bulletin board for over a year now - well at least 11 months. I got the frame from DI last year before we moved. I added the cork {2 layers} and painted on a pretty scallop.

It will either hang in my kitchen as the message epicenter or in my craft area as my inspiration board.

Cost breakdown:
Frame - $2
Spray Paint - $1
Cork - ~$7

So for $10 I have awesome wall decor.

Secondly, I made this memory box with shells Ryan and I collected in San Diego last year when we were there for Nate and April's wedding. I found the oddity of the black shells beautiful and have finally done something.

I think it makes the perfect complement to our downstairs bathroom.

I am loving the shells... are they glued on a platter?

epi·cen·ter: (n) the part of the earth's surface directly above the focus of an earthquake

I think you meant center! LOL :)

I LOVE the shell thing! But because of how you cropped it I had a dang hard time at first figuring out what it was (reading your comments helped).

I'm still lol-ing! :p

I don't think so, Tim:
epi·cen·ter
Pronunciation: \ˈe-pi-ˌsen-tər\
Function: noun
Etymology: New Latin epicentrum, from epi- + Latin centrum center
Date: 1887
1 : the part of the earth's surface directly above the focus of an earthquake — compare hypocenter 1
2 : center 2a, b, c (i.e. the epicenter of world finance)

Love the shell shadow box! But same as Hillary, I had a hard time figuring out what it was at first. For a minute it looked like skull-shaped filled chocolate molds! haha..

yeah, the pictures aren't so great. I need to work on getting pictures when it's actually light outside.
