first time blogger, long time reader...
okay, not sure if i can really do this blog thing...but i'll give it a whirl! i love reading other people's blogs and getting ideas for decorating my cottagey/romantic/shabby chic home, so why not start my own blog??? well it takes time (i don't have, 3 kids+hubby+3 dogs+2 cats) ,energy (sometimes i do, sometimes i don't!), and some writing ability (???), and an inclination for taking pictures of my decorating projects (wow, am i in trouble!). nevertheless, i am going to try.
my first post is about the importance of letting your children and yourself express your creativity. on the walls, on the doors... okay, i'm talking about chalkboards! paint one in the playroom (if you have one, i don't,but wouldn't that be nice?) in the kitchen, in the kids rooms, wherever it will suit your needs and creativity best.
i painted one on the pocket door in my kitchen that leads into my laundry room. i put a monthly family virtue and verses relating to that virtue (i stole the idea from another blogger, balancing beauty and bedlam) on it. and on the bottom portion i let the kids go to town or write a grocery list or reminders. so, here are some pics of said painted on chalkboard.one is my pic, the other one my 7 yr. old daughter took of her chalk creation! hope you're inspired to make your own in your home!
still trying to come up w/ a cute little number to sign off with~ decorating diva
