Hello my friends, a while ago I was at our local thrift and I spied a pile of old clipboards.
A smile crossed my face when I saw that they were from ‘Cory Adams’ Photography. Fond memories rose through my mind as I remembered the ‘chicken man’ as he was so often referred to coaxing children to smile for school pictures.
He had a rubber chicken that he would use to get their attention. Even the most straight faced child could not help but crack a smile at the ‘chicken mans’ antics.
I liked that this board said ‘Cory Adams Photo’.
This picture is of my Grandfather John Chorniak, on my dad’s side.
A while ago I had pinned this idea from my friend, Carlene at Organized Clutter.
I love how she put a frame around hers. I didn’t have the space so I just hung mine on the wall. It’s a narrow area between my craft room and the bath room in our basement.
The long narrow clipboard was unusual. I hadn’t seen one that size before. It was in pretty rough shape so I decided to cover it using Modge Podge and torn book pages. I added the book page strip on the top left clipboard to tie it in. I then added a few vintage looking stamps.
I gave the other clipboards a good rub down with Old English.
We only have a few photos of my mother when she was young. This is my favorite.
My she was hitting the jug at a young age. lol!
Look at that face. . .priceless!
This is my dad. Handsome brut, don’t you think?
If I have a photo of my Grandpa, I need one of my Grandma. Emma Zina was my mothers mom. She is on the left on the small clipboard with two of her sisters.
The clipboards were $1 each so it makes for a very inexpensive photo gallery.
I will be joining these fun parties:
