What's On Your Bulletin Board???

Bulletin Boards...what would we do without them? Keepers of tidbits, memory joggers and favorite things. I would be lost without mine. They are forever changing with whatever happens to be my interests at the moment. I have several in my studio and thought I would share a few of mine. To me... bulletin boards are  like magazines can tell alot about the person by what magazines they have in their home. Here is a glimpse into mine.... ;-)

(click on pictures to enlarge)

I have two bulletin boards above where I sculpt.
This one has reference sculpting sheets, some favorite quotes, some vintage postcards, vintage doodads and one of my favorite things a wooden cross made of olive wood from Jerusalem.The olive tree grows in the Holy Land and can survive for up to 2000 years. Jesus prayed in Gethsemane next to an olive tree that some say still exists to this day. I have a deep faith in God and this little wooden cross is always there to remind me of His love and sacrifice.

This one is also on my sculpting table...favorite cartoons, images, scriptures, my trusty Ipod, (I have to have listening music...plain and simple) journals, skeleton reference and a great cartoon I took out of a old Painting magazine from years ago when I was oil painting on canvas. The cartoon depict's a little fellow all ready to start a new painting but then he realizes it just isn't his day. I think we all have those days you start out with the best intentions...ready to create... and then...things just don't go as planned. Grrrr.. This cartoon  has been on my bulletin board for over 30 years. It has been with me for many years of creating and always brings a smile when I look at it. It has a lot of meaning to me. Comical but oh so true.... LOL  

This bulletin board is one of 2 in my sewing area. Favorite pictures of me and my horse Benta, new silk ribbon, more vintage postcards, silly cartoons, a sketch my son did of a fairy when he was about 9 years old, a vintage valentine my husband gave me on valentines day, and a sweet little sketch/doodle my husband did one day while on the telephone that he presented to me after he got off the phone. Very comical and reads "Hey babe...wanna Smooch?" LOL   ;-D

These images are from a Vogue magazine from several years ago. I have notebooks full of dresses that I love to have for inspiration. These are some of my favorites.

What wonderful bulletin boards!!
They all say a little about you.
Each one is special and tells a story, great inspiration!!

I need to get a pegboard again. I gave mine to one of my daughters and never replaced it. They really are invaluable in a studio.

I enjoyed seeing yours!

Dessa Rae said...

Sorry to say, I don't have a bulletin board :(
I use tacky putty and stick the important items to my

I may have to invest in a real bulletin

Marcie Hart - A Work Of Hart said...

Hey there Sue! I can't imagine not having mine. They seem to catch everything stray and floating around....probably not a good thing since I am a clutterbug!!! LOL

Hi Dessa! I had to laugh!!! But hey...whatever works... right???? Hmm...maybe a new idea for adding more "Stuff" to my walls. LOL ;-D
