2011 inspiration board

In another life- one minus the babies and dental school- Adam and I entirely renovated a hundred year old house. We tiled and completely remodeled the kitchen and several bathrooms and refinished (original) wood flooring and painted more walls than I care to remember.

I still have a door that we pulled out of that house and occasionally use it as a backdrop for party favors (or cocktails and mocktails ballots).

I love our history with this door. And I love. love. LOVE what it has become- a door-turned-inspiration board that now resides in my craft room.

Seriously, I’ve never been so excited to find things to “Make,” and “See,” and “Write.”

And I love having magnets and clips (and the round inspiration boards!) for all of my clippings and never-ending lists.

And Burke LOVES having his own special spot on the board- two whole panels of chalkboard space and his own blue clip for showcasing his ‘artwork.’

We’re just ten days in, but I am loving 2011.
