Magic and a Confession

So it's not really true magic but I think it's pretty neat....I've always read about other people having idea boards and I've never really thought about doing one, but then I began to get frustrated with having to move my projects around when space ran low and I decided to jump on board. There are so many different ways to do this and different materials to use-some people use batting, insulation sheets, flannel or a few other things I can't think of off of the top of my head. I decided to use flannel because I'd be able to reuse it without having to worry too much about the size I cut-with batting I feel like you would have to work off of a standard quilt size to make it truly functional.
As you can see all you have to do is hang it and it's ready to go, the quilt squares "stick" to it and you can play around with the design and are able to step back and look at it from a distance-which is a big plus for me.
Ok on to the confession.....I think I'm a pink person! I know this isn't a bad thing so fellow pink people don't take offense but I've never seen myself as a "pink person". But along with owning this store comes the realization that I must be. I tend to order a lot of pink, I do projects in pink and am currently working on a grey and pink quilt-see above pink for the start of the quilt(oh and thanks to Kelly over at Project: Cottage for the inspiration to do a zig zag quilt. Yet however I don't dress in pink, don't really buy a lot of pink for my daughter and am not doing her room in pink-atleast that's not the plan right now, but I really don't have a plan for it. So yes I guess I now consider myself a "pink person" hmmmmmm......

Oh I almost forgot-have you ever dropped something on your toe and it hurt so bad that you thought you were going to throw up? If it's happened to you-you totally know what I mean-those of you that don't, I hope you never do. Yeah happened to me today-I bought this pegboard to hang patterns a new way and really didn't expect it to be that heavy when I dropped it-not fun.
