"What makes you happy?" Magnetic Board

This is what the metal plaque looked like when I bought it, not too terribly ugly, but I had a more colorful idea in store for it!

I decided to change this metal plaque into a "What makes you happy?" Magnetic Board. The thought behind this was to provide you with a fun place to post all of the things you love and that make you happy. Then hang it somewhere you spend a lot of time, so when you are having a rough day, you have something you can look at that will put a smile back on your face.

This magnetic board sold for $26. Email me at: if you would like me to make one for you using your happy colors. :)

"Family" Wood Art

I needed something for the top of the hutch in the dining room and came across this white painted "Family" wood plaque and knew it was exactly what I was looking for! I have started accenting my newly painted yellowish dining room with whites & grays, so I went looking for the perfect paper to decorate this and came across some really cute paper from Authentique. I am really pleased with how it turned out!

I had so much fun decorating the plaque for my dining room that I made another one to sell. Here are some photos of the one that I have for sale. The size is: 25" L x 6 3/4" H and is on sale for $35. I used some great paper from My Minds Eye, Stella Rose Collection, distressed the wood and stamped across the bottom with the words: love, believe, blessings and be authentic. I also added handmade fabric flowers as embellishments. E-mail me at:, if you would like to purchase it or stop by Studio B, 115 N. Santa Fe, Salina, to see it in person.
