2014 bulletin board

Thursday, January 09, 2014

At the beginning of each year I take everything off my bulletin board and start over. It's a cleansing process. I love thinking of the beginning of each year as a brand new start even I don't necessarily feel like I need it. Plus it's fun to have a little change of scenery every so often. For the past two years I've shared a peek at my fresh bulletin board (2012 + 2013) so of course, I'm here today to share 2014's bulletin board.
I try to leave off things things that were up the previous year but there are some things I just have a hard time parting with. The banner I made from an old book last year was way too cute not to leave up. That key with the guy on it, I'm not even sure where that came from but it's been up there since 2012. The deer mount too, I don't think I'll ever leave that off.
A few sources :
girl with tooth print, fuck yeah ribbon, cat watch, mouse pin, camera crew patch, cactus queen, tooth embroidery, mushroom, beetle + planet patches, stay home pennant, bear mount, mushroom calendar.
Deer mount, cat postcard, and mushrooms are vintage. Raccoon brooch, and banner are handmade.

  3. So lovely! I am a fan of Emily's (the black apple) work, so her two paintings catch my eye, but everything looks equally great and describes so much your interests :) the teeth, mushrooms, cats, doggie! Your exercise of changing your board every year is an inspiration.

  14. It's great how you change it up at the beginning of every year! It's a neat ritual. My board is currently my necklace holder, but it shows them off very well so it works. :)

    1. You could always hang one on the back of your door, or on the inside of a closet door! There's always room. ;)

  16. What a great tradition. I'm in the process of reorganizing my desk area and I think I will add this to the process. Also, love the Shabby Apple. Her "Joy Division Girl" print was the first gift I received when I moved into my own apartment.

  22. I love how you decorate your bulletin board! It's the perfect display of smileworthy things (and so tidy! My own bulletin board is functional, boring, but also very cluttered). That fuck yeah ribbon is incredible.

  23. I really should take the things down from my board and restart, you can't even see board under all of the things I have pinned..
