Once upon a time I went to college. And I lived in a dorm with the other dorm dorks and I didn't really mind it so much. I never aspired to be a sorority girl except when I saw all their cute matchy matchy stuff and even then I didn't really want to be a sorority girl, but I sort of wanted some of their stuff.
I promise I have a point.
Many of the sorority girls at my school had these totally awesome super sized lap desks that their sorority "mom" made for them – cute magazine clippings and other fun flat embellishments abounded. Then this man in Stillwater did something to the board that sealed the deal for good. I'm not even sure what it was, but the boards were smooth and ready for writing.
Fast forward about 15 years. Have you priced nice large lap desks lately? They are crazy. I wanted to do something similar to what these sorority girls had in Stillwater, Oklahoma in the mid-90's because I'm totally hip like that. I asked my dad to cut me some boards which he willingly did. See?
But now I'm stuck. I had all these super plans to cutesify them for each of the girls and do the mod podge thing. Then it occurred to me that these probably won't be smooth enough to write or draw on. There will be bumps from the paper.
Help? WWYD? (That's "what would you do" in case you didn't know that already.) I was planning on these for Christmas. Now I'm not so sure.
