I finished my last exam this morning which means it’s packing time. I’m about to tackle taking down the stuff on my bulletin board, but I thought I’d share it here  in all its glory first. It has managed to sneak into being a regular part of this blog, but I’ve never shown how gigantic it really is.


I hated it when I first moved in because it was this disgusting tan color and it is so massive. One day I decided to get some home dec. magazines and completely cover the thing in colors and textures that I like. From there I just kept layering more and more on it.

On it there are…

  • 8 cards
  • 2 doodles
  • 5 post cards
  • 3 train tickets
  • 1 set of stickers
  • 1 cross stitch fox
  • 1 chunk of teal ribbon
  • a lot of magazine cut outs
  • 2 random intarsia projects
  • 3 wads of tissue paper from a birthday present
  • 2 sad balloons – there were more but most fell down
  • 1 frog thing from Sarah’s Kinder Egg that Kevin put up there when they were visiting

I’m having a hard time deciding what to keep and what to toss. The knitting and cross stitch are definitely coming home with me, but I’m not sure about the other things.

  1. Personally, I would just keep the stickers, train tickets, post cards/cards/doodles and the frog thing. The balloons, magazine cut outs and tissue paper can be tossed and replaced with new ones. I’m not sure what I would do with the ribbon, I’d probably toss it out in the end.

    Good luck on packing!

  2. Oh, how I miss Kinder Eggs. My friend would bring them home for me when she was sent overseas.

  3. Congratulations on finishing exams, and good luck packing! I spent the last two weeks of May packing up my entire life and shipping it across the country, so I can definitely relate to the dilemmas of keep vs. toss.

  4. I myself would hoard everything, move across the world with it all shoved in a plastic bag or folder, and find it two years later.

    I have actually done this, I have moved to different countries a few times, and each time books and paper take up the most space!

  5. Congratulations on finishing your exams! I just finished too, it’s a great feeling, i love your bulletin board!
