I have a real problem with letting mail, paper scraps, and other such paraphernalia take over the desk/crafting space. This HAD to stop! So I dismembered a cardboard box and created this cute little solution:

Thanks, kraftygirl Smiley  It is actually just nailed to the wall with some wickedly long pushpins. They seem to be doing the job.

Thank you all for your kind words. Cheesy I found the owl graphic by searching google images for "owl outline." It was on the 2nd or 3rd page of hits. There are many other great owl images that sprang up with that search, as well. Might be helpful for those of you who can/ have the time to draw out your own owl image. Then we can all infringe on you. Wink

That is adorable and such a good use of some leftover cardboard!
