Small Project, Big Announcement

This is related to nothing, but it looked so pretty I wanted to show you. One of Craig’s patients belongs to an organic garden co-op and shared these veggies with us. Mmmmm!IMG_4098

Moving on, I have a fun little project to show you. Months ago, I bought some plain little wooden plaques at Dollar Tree (no before photos). Some chalkboard paint and replacing the original ribbon hanger gave me this.IMG_4100 A cute sign to leave messages on the interior garage door.

IMG_4106 Or happy greetings.

IMG_4104 Or congratulation notes!

Wow! The veggies look so beautiful. Although I'm ticked that I didn't win the giveaway. Katie and Amy were looking at a chalkboard to hang in their apartment when they get one and I promised them I'd win this giveaway and give them the one that was in the package!!

That's a cool little project. I love ones you can complete in just a couple of hours. And chalkboard paint never gets old!

Adorable! I stop and stare at those plaques every time I go to Dollar Tree and wonder what I could do with them. Alas I leave empty handed each time because I never come up with anything cool.

Kudos to ya!

I like that idea for a project. I keep thinking about using something larger for a chalkboard, but I think I like the smaller ones better. (Besides, that's not so intimidating.)
