My husband and I each had a cork board from our pre-marriage days. We recently added two more to our collection (for a total of $8, since we had a coupon for one and found the other one used for a dollar).
This brings us to a grand total of 4 cork boards in the house: one in the playroom (covered in fun notes from pre-school teachers and lots of kid artwork), and one for each of the kids to use however they want.
The girls absolutely lit up when we hung the boards in their rooms. S has used hers as a canvas for collecting. She wants her favorite pictures, stories, etc. displayed there. (I am not posting pictures since our names and her personal things are all over it, but it is awesome.)
E has used hers to launch a new line of clothing for princesses. In case you think I am kidding, check out the work she did in ONE afternoon.
The big picture:
And some of the detail…
Here the princesses are, in their traditional outfits.
and here are some items from E’s new princess line:
The items below come with hangers.
Here you see that hats (designed to look like miniature princesses…how creative is that?) are coming back in style.
The new line has a bridal section.
Also things to just wear around the castle.
In case you think E stopped there – at the design stage – check her out turning the sketches into reality:
And in case you think she is satisfied with having simply created the outfits, know that she then turned her attention to marketing them. Here is an image of her wares, as they are advertised on the sidewalk outside.
Please note, these clothes are moving fast (there is already a queue of pictures waiting for their turn on the cork board). That means supplies are limited!
What knows no limits is the kids’ creativity.
Where I saw a corkboard, E saw possibility, and a whole new fall line!
