...B.J.L. Designs.
Today is their (his) first time being featured on a real craft blog. Sorry, no personal photo or tutorial. Just expert craftmanship.

Last Fall, Brigham started working on these rocking beauties and finished one in time for this past Christmas. The wooden rocking horse is modeled after a Lundberg childhood heirloom: Old Paint. 
With the help of some family members, he was able to complete the rest of them a couple of weekends ago. I never knew he was such a woodworker. 
Here's the line-up:

Cleaning clipboards

As we get ready to move to a new home (the first one that we aren't "just renting"), I thought I'd try to get off on the right cleaning foot. I'm hoping these memo (6"x9") clipboard checklists will help me keep our first place tidy (or at least semi-clean). I'm planning on hanging them in the each area.

I mod podged some paper to the back of the clipboards and put a little distress ink around the edges. I don't want too many embellishments. It is for function rather than design, right?
Each list is laminated and will be accompanied by a china marker (wax pencil) to check and wipe clean afterwards. I'm planning on tying them on with a ribbon or something.
