Cabinet Bulletin Board and Another Washcloth

This is the inside of my baking cabinet door. It used to have our most often used recipes taped onto it. It had gotten to be quite a mess. Some of the recipes were ones we no longer use, but they were all taped onto each other so it was impossible to easily get them down.

I liked the idea of being able to put recipes up like that, keeping them out of the way but still easy to see. So when I saw this idea on Pinterest, I knew it was one I had to do. I just had to wait until I could get to Walmart (100 miles away). This was easily the simplest Pinterest project I've done yet. All I had to do was remove what I had taped up, apply the adhesive tape to the back of the corkboard squares, and press them into place. The cork board only cost $5 and some change, and I still have two more squares. I'm thinking they may go inside my craft cabinet door for ideas or patterns I'm going to need right away.

Much better, don't you think? Now I can pin up any recipe and put it away when done. And the best part was that I was able to complete this during the time it took my husband to shave this morning. Very quick and easy. My kind of project!

I've also been bitten by the crochet bug... again. This time I'm making up some washcloths (after being inspired yet again by Pinterest.) I bought a large cone of this color combo, and should be able to make several sets of these washcloths. I did this one in the car today while we drove to the next nearest town (well the next nearest with a population over 100 anyway), which is a 40 minute drive ... or longer when you're stuck behind a snowplow spitting gravel at your brand new windshield... We decided we weren't in such a big hurry that we wanted to chance getting a chip only 24 hours after replacing the windshield. Anyway, we went to a craft fair over there, then had lunch. Once we got home my husband took the older kids over to see his parents and I stayed home so the baby and 2 year old could nap. It's been a good, lazy, and surprisingly productive Saturday. :)
