My word for this year is believe.  I want to work more on believing in myself, and in good things happening.  My dad is also battling cancer, and I believe in the strength of my family in surviving this hard time in our lives.  I have a gorgeous project to share that will remind me!

Let's take a look.....

*First I gathered my supplies.  I have a board and base, the Believe transfer, 
and flowers from the You Are Enough transfer set.

*I apply the reusable transfer to my chalkboard surface.

*Next, I spread the chalkpaste over the design.

*I quickly peel up the transfer to reveal my design!

*Any chalkpaste that is not where I want it is easily wiped off!

*I add some flowers using multiple colors.

*My project is complete!  I absolutely love it, and can't wait to proudly display it!!

New Class, New Year!

Hi Everybody!
Well, I am back from my unplanned blogging hiatus!  We've had so many changes going on in our family, some good and some bad.  My time has gotten really hectic, so I've mostly been able to just post quick things to Facebook and Instagram.  I am making creating more of a priority this year, so I'm excited for today's announcement! 

I'm happy to announce my newest class with Chalk Couture!  Check out the details below, and make sure to watch the video!  If you have any questions on how Chalk Couture works, or what's included in this class the video will be able to tell you all the info!

TFL, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today! :D
