Short Lived Inspiration

So, today I saw this awesome post by Marie over at The Hands On Teacher.  She made this super cool clipboard with duct tape.  I was so inspired that I immediately went out to get the supplies to make my own!  I knew that I wanted polka dots, so I found this:

Cute, right??  Then I went to get a clipboard.  I looked...and looked...and looked.  No clipboards to be found anywhere in Target!  What?!?

I didn't have anymore time to shop because I had to come home to this guy:

So maybe tomorrow I'll venture somewhere else to get a clipboard.  Oh well.

P.S. ~ click on his picture to see more photos at my {severely neglected} photo blog.

  9. Super cute puppy. I always get so frustrated when I can't get everything I need to make something. My nemesis for that is always Walmart. Good luck on the clipboard hunt :)

    My (Not So) Elementary Life

  10. Well... thats how my life goes! I have super cute dogs at home, and its just so hard to stay away from them too long! I've been visiting my hometown for 2 weeks now, and as much as I have loved it, I am super excited to see my pups tomorrow!!! I completely understand how that goes! :)

    Reaching for the TOP!

    1. We are leaving for vacation soon - I don't want to leave him!! Luckily he will be in good hands when we are gone, but I am definitely going to miss him!

  11. Hi Sara-

    I am in the process of redoing some old and ugly clipboards to fit my Harry Potter themed classroom. Once they are done I plan on posting the process (pinterest, decopage, and patience) along with the pictures on my blog. I can't wait to see what yours look like!

  13. Thanks for stopping by. I get clipboards from the Target dollar bin whenever they have them. Some of mine are looking worn though, so the duct tape would be a great fix!
