Baseball List

My highest viewed post is Softball Flower, thanks to someone sharing it on Pintrest. It's been viewed over 2700 times!  That just blows my mind.

The problem is that it's been for sale in my craft booth for 3 months.  I decided it was time to use in a bigger project, since people are obviously not sure what to do with it.  I didn't want to sell the basket it was shown on in the previous blog post. 

I painted a wood frame chalkboard to match the flower trim.  Then I listed my son's baseball games, hoping this will appeal to a softball or baseball mom!  It sure beats taping schedules to the calendar or stuck on a corkboard (mine's always too full anyhow).

I attached the flower with jump rings (small metal jewelry pieces) to the jute twine.  I fed the jump ring through a loop of edge trim embroidery floss.  This gives me (or the owner) the option to remove it & change things up.  I didn't want to glue it on & wasn't sure anything would hold it, so it's simply hanging.
