There are many moments in my life where I wish I had the ability to have a photographic memory. Moments after my children were born, moments where my children hit their milestones, moments I had with my grandparents, moments with my parents, moments when I was a child with my siblings, and so many more.
I long for the days where my children were tiny and fell asleep on my chest, the warmth of their little bodies putting me into a satisfying sleep. I know how wonderful that feeling was, but I wish there was a part of my memory that was able to make it more real and clear
I had this big empty wall in our upstairs hall that was a bit boring and was longing to be useful. In a moment of pure genius I decided to turn it into a giant bulletin board so that I could easily hang and change out snapshots and R.J. and Lily's artwork. I mentioned this to my mother-in-law and she suggested that I use old ceiling tiles; not only was I able to get some for free they worked perfectly. I covered 12 of them with different fabrics by folding the fabric over the back of the tile and adhering it with hot glue. I used paneling adhesive to attach each panel to the wall (just know that if you do not want this to be permanent you should find another way to put them on the wall); you just need to hold each panel for a minute or two before the adhesive grabs hold. I found some pretty straight pins in the sewing section of Walmart and my bulletin board was ready to go.
