Since I noticed the lovely portrait of me looking all disheveled with my shiny new iPad was appearing in the "people I follow" section of some of your wonderful blogs, I was inspired to put up a new post quickly.
And I figured I would find inspiration in being disheveled to share with you my favorite way to do a bulletin board.
There was once a time that I made myself crazy trying to create symmetrical, straight boards. I used rulers. I used yard sticks. I even had a little level to aid in my attempts at perfection.
It never worked.
Something would always be off center or at an angle that was a few degrees from where I had wanted it to be.
And it made me crazy to look at it.
I would cringe each time I walked by.
Then I adopted the "just go with it" philosophy and started slanting my letters left and right. I put up the kids' work with a zig and a zag.
And in its own messy way it was perfect.
