Show and Tell Monday

Hi everyone......this week's Show and Tell isn't pink! I started working on an altered clipboard and it ended up being retro diner style.....I think it's kinda cute. Do you ever do that? Just start creating without a plan and see what evolves? Sometimes I do my best work that way. Anyway here are a couple of photos I took of "Mom's Kitchen", my altered art is listed on my website in the New Items and Shabby Cottage categories.

Hi Debbie,
I love the clipboard. I once had my kitchen done in a retro look. I love that look. You really did a great job on the clipboard.

I love when that happens ... I start something and it just evolves on its own. Great clipboard!

Yes, I understand completely! You start out with one idea and the idea takes over, then...voila!
Nice board too!

Hi Debbie,

The altered kitchen clipboard is really cute! Love the cute graphics on them! I tried to join in the poll the other time but was too late - but I don't drink coffee though.. ;P

Have a great week!

HI! I love this clip board. The colors are awesome. And I like the fact you can use it. I see alot of altered clip boards that arent usuable! Nearly everything I do is flying by the seat of my pants. LOL
Happy Thanksgiving... Gail

Hey Debbie!
This clipboard is adorable. Very fun! I do think that our best work comes when we just let it flow instead of trying to make it flow and forcing things. Follow our hearts. Keep up the good work.
Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving,

Oh, it's very cute-- you do great stuff, Debbie!

Just wanted to stop by and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving! I apologize I don't get to drop by as much as I would like, but I do think about you and thought Thanksgiving would be a good time to make sure I said it! Have a great one.

Hi Debbie,
I love the clipboard. Retro is one of my favorite styles. My kitchen is all read, black and white. Hmmm that would look nice in it as a matter of fact. LOl.
Have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving.
