Clipboard Décor & DIY

In my daily Pinterest stalking I have noticed a desorganization trend (yeah, I definitely just made up my own word … “desorganization” – [] – design meets organization.  Not to be confused with “disorganization” – that word is not currently welcome in my half-boxed apartment.) {Note: I can’t even make some off-handed joke about having too much free time; I actually have no free time and make up these bizarre phrases between thoughts of law, packing, and The Bachelorette on DVR super-speed (no time, people).}

Oh right … clipboards!  On the wall!  Desorganization at it’s best!

DIY your own desorganization décor.  When it comes to mod podge, I’m a cheap sell.  It’s mod podge!  Mod podge provides some semblance of control in my otherwise chaotic life; it reminds me of the 3rd grade (and sorority rush), and (BONUS), at the end of your project, you get to peel your handprint off of your hand and throw it at an unsuspecting bystander (Halloween DIY!).  Also, because I clearly think I’m 8 years old, this DIY involves collaging (which I also became an expert at during sorority rush.)  Cover your clipboard in printed scrapbook paper, magazine clippings, newsprint, fabric swatches, seed packs, receipts, the list goes on.  I’m going to mod podge Taylor Lautner all over my clipboard.  Err, it’s for my teenaged sister.

If you thought my DIY explanation stunk, get more help here, here, and here, or just cover your clipboard with Lisa Frank stickers.
