Make Your Own Interchangable Magnetic Memo Board Using A Picture Frame

Making a magnetic memo board is as easy as can be.  An old frame,  sheet metal, and some scrapbook paper can instantly become a simple and useful piece of home decor.  If you find the right sized picture frame it can also be interchangeable.  This board is the perfect place to display your newest family photos, cards from family and friends, or important dates and notes. I love using our magnetic board to display import things.  For holidays and birthdays it is filled with cards and letters from family and friends.  If we have important dates or activities I often leave a little note...

Quotes On Canvas Make Meaningful Wall Art

If there are two things I love it is family photos and wall words.  Filling our home with cherished photos and words that inspire makes me just plain happy.  I found a great deal on a faux photo canvas and did some photo editing to combine two of my very favorite things.  A little canvas for my daughter’s room that makes a big impact.
