Hello All!  Pinquette Lisa here with another
"Awesomesauce" project for you today!  Thus far,
I have used our Pinque Peacock buttons for jewelry…..could I?  
Do I dare? Use them….for something else? I saw the
beautiful Layered Garden Beauties I received, and
the colors reminded me so much of my home!  
The gorgeous earthy colors….oh, could this be the
I have been looking for? Could it be? For so long
 I have wanted one of these chic, padded, memo boards.  
I "just happened to have" coordinating fabric in my
 "fabric bin" (Yes, I REALLY have one!)  I used
upholstery samples I got on clearance from Joann’s
and some denim….from…umm… jeans that don’t
fit anymore…(yes! Tip….Save your clothes….if
you can craft with it, don't donate it!  It can be cut,
die cut, dyed and all sorts of nifty stuff. I love to
dye cut denim, and for YEARS I would donate
my old jeans and buy denim fabric…WHAT????
 How crazy is that…?)  So, I used strips of upholstery
fabric and denim, along with some basting strips, a staple
gun, and a 18x20 Canvas ($3.99), padded
with some quilters batting, and created…..

I covered my tack marks with our Pinque Peacock
found a resting place for my stick pins to boot!  I hope
you have enjoyed my project, and please….
let your imagination carry you far!
