Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Upcycled Cork Board

Hello again T -Shirt Diary followers!  It is I the Pink Bat girl here to rescue another item from an unthinkable fate!
Awhile ago my hubby Mr. Pinkapotamus as I lovingly refer to him as salvaged this cork board from the garbage pile at his work.
Yesterday at Walmart I found some really fabulous black and white fabric in the scrap pile for a whopping $4 and knew that it was destined for the cork board.
This morning I took the board and painted its lovely brown frame black.
Then I added the fabric to the cork board with some craft glue.  I worked in sections so that it came out even.

This is how it looked all glued into place and pretty!

Next I added a border of polka dot ribbon in the interior.

Last I made a big paper flower to go on the corner and added some of my kids beautiful artwork!

And here is a close up of my scrappy flower just for fun!



Hooray.. another item saved from destruction and turned into a beautiful useful item for my home! 
Thanks so much for letting me visit!
Love,
Amie
