Howdy, all! It's been a wonderful day in the "neighborhood".....hehe, sounds like good ole Mr. Rogers!

I didn't get into making any cards today, but wanted to show you what I did with all my Nestabilities. I found a large corkboard at the local craft store and covered the cork with magnet sheets using my Beacons 3-1 craft glue. Well, I didn't like the black background, so I dug around in my fabric stash and found this pretty print semisheer fabric that I acquired some years ago when I worked at a local fabric store. Easy peasy.....I sprayed the magnetic sheets with spray adhesive, laid the fabric on the surface and let it dry. I then went around the edge with a sharp craft knife and cut the fabric back into the edge of the frame. Didn't like the unfinished frame, so I found a matching acrylic paint in my paint stash and painted the whole frame. Also found a nice braided trim to finish the edge of the fabric. Voila!! The nesties are all in view, they come off the fabric easier than just the magnetic sheets. I was going to hang the board, but decided to just lean it against the wall on the countertop in the craft room. That way, if I want to move them to a different area, I can! Man, am I proud of myself!! I even left spaces for the NEW nesties I plan to get....LOL!! A gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do, right??!!!! Til tomorrow....
