When I have a lot of projects going on, they seem to pile up around me. I usually tend to have several projects going on simultaneously, and I like to see them at a glance, without taking up any counter space. Solution found: a Clipboard Wall. Each project (ideas for sewing, furniture projects, notes on school projects...) gets its own clipboard.
I hang mine going down the stairs to my studio. It gives me a quick inspiration and reminder of my projects, without cluttering up my living space. The best part: it's super easy and inexpensive. Use any clipboards you like (I chose vintage wooden ones) and just hang them on nails. Wa-laa.
Look at that--empty clipboards. I must need more projects!
