A quick before and after

This is probably the billionth time you've seen a chalkboard make-over.  Ha!  I know I'm not getting any points for originality here.  But it's still cute and fun.  

Just in case you didn't know this, it's important to let that paint dry at least 24 hours.  Rub a piece of chalk all over it and then wipe it off before you write on it.  I'm still waiting my 24 hours :)

In other very exciting news, I got Mother-of-the-Year award this week for buying my kids a box of Fruity Pebbles.  I don't usually let them eat sugar and food coloring for breakfast, but since it's Spring Break I threw all caution to the wind ;)

I've been sewing and sewing and sewing...I've got lots of new items for my shop.  Lots and lots!  I can't wait to show you.

Ok, I'm off to find Easter eggs.  If your kids are bored, bring out the plastic easter eggs.  Mine have been playing easter egg hunts ALL week!  Totally entertaining :)
Happy Thursday!
