You Can Make One Too!!

I always want a way to showcase the many cards I get as I consider each of them a work of art. Several years ago I purchased a wire thing from Pottery Barn that is used for photos. I have it above my desk. I like it, but not how much I had to pay for it, LOL! I have been on the hunt ever since. Well, I hit pay dirt and by that I mean DIRT CHEAP. I purchased a wire garden fence (those short ones you put around a flower bed) for $4 at Big Lots. $4 can you believe it? I must say it was a really nasty green color, but it was only $4!!!! I took it home and spray painted it black, used wire cutters and cut off the wires that stick into the ground. I then dismantled part of it, according to where I wanted to place it on my walls. I even had a large piece left over to give to my daughter to use for family photos. What a perfect and nice to look at display of my stamping friends art. No more having piles of cards here and there. Now they are just a glance away.

I hope this inspires you to make one yourself. Please leave me a comment if you make one , and tell me what you think. Have fun!!
