Why don’t I get arts & crafts time everyday like I did when I was a kid? I’m an accountant. I’m pretty sure the IRS frowns upon creativity in my world. So I’ve promised myself more time to use the creative side of my brain and have found a few craft projects on Pinterest that will keep the creative kid in me alive! Pinterest, if you’ve never heard of it, is a magical, photo sharing land of projects, food, fashion, etc found on the inter-webs.
I found a great Menu Board project from another blog that was posted on Pinterest and decided to tackle the project. I followed the instructions for the most part, but changed a few things: I didn’t put the glass back in the frame (in case I want to use the frame/glass in the future), I used pieces of cork board instead of clothespins for my recipes, and I didn’t laminate anything. I also haven’t completely figured out how I want the board to work for me. I printed out some of my favorite dinner ideas with ingredients inside to help make a grocery list for things that I don’t normally have. I think it will take using it awhile to figure out the most efficient way to use the board, but I’m hoping it will help make meal planning easier!
I hope this sparked some creative ideas for you!

My parents have been making spoon & fork rings! They’ve been taking old spoons & forks and turning them into fashion for your fingers! How clever 🙂
