Something Different: How To Make a Memo Board (video)

Okay, so this is not your usual blog post, but I think you'll like a little change :) I'm going to show you how to make your own memo board out of a vintage frame. This way, you can keep all your notes right next to your computer when you need them. Especially TEE's five colors, or 5 steps, of editing. Oh and it's a nice way to turn your Honey's picture into a memo board as well.

Give it a try and don't forget to drop us a line and let us know how it worked out. And don't forget a picture too :)


  1. G, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this post. I'm a crafty person, so this is right up my alley. I have Post-It notes all over my computer desk, so this is a much prettier alternative.

    Thanks so much for thinking outside the box for a very unique post. I can't wait to try this. I'll post a picture when I do.

  2. LJ I can't wait to see what you come up with. You are definitely a crafting queen and are sure to have a twist of your own. Looking forward to the end result :)

    BTW I'm using my son's computer now. I spilled coffee on Baby and the keyboard is shot.

  3. So, I'm writing from my office computer, which means I can't watch the video at the moment...but it's a must-watch for when I get home. But I love that you're switching things up, Ginger, with a video AND a fun project. I'm not all that crafty by nature, but when people give me step-by-step instructions, I do enjoy projects! :) This looks like a fun one...thanks, Ginger!

  4. Thanks M-Tagg. Let me know if it wasn't clear enough. After watching the video, I think I could have made a few more things clear, but as this was my first try, I'm claiming the circle-of-grace ;)

  5. What a fun vlog, Ginger! I love this idea. I may just have to branch out and try my gloved hand at working with metal. You are so creative!
    PS, I recognize that picture in your larger frame. :)

  6. Love this post. As I look around my computer, I can visualize how neat this project would make my work area!

    Great job, Ginger!

  7. Awesome, Jeanne!

    Which one?

    They are called The Manchurian Emperor and Empress. Are you a collector of Caroline Young?

  8. Hi, Ginger!
    Thanks for featuring the first vlog on the Ponderers blog! You're upping the game, friend.
    I'm not crafty at all--but maybe my one of my daughter's will help me with this.

  9. Yep, I'm with MTAGG and can't view the video from work. :-(
    But, I love your creativity and the fact that you think outside the box. Great post G.

  10. G...
    I enjoyed the post and will def. have to try it out...especially since we stock sheetmetal (hehe!).

    I especially enjoyed "seeing" my cooking buddy on the video. I misplaced the Terr. recipe, so I've had to make do with store bought...but every time I make it, I think about you.

    Blessings My Friend!
    Alena T.

  11. Miss you too, Alena. Oh so much!
