Can you hear it?

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, so it’s screaming loud and clear!  Pink is my favorite color and I love hearts so much that I have a collection of them…glass, wood, stone and even metal.  See, Valentine’s Day isn’t just about diamonds (though I’d never turn one down) and it’s not just about flowers and fancy meals.  And no, I won’t turn that down either!  But if you really want to make me swoon…think old fashioned ways to show me you love me.  Wild flowers picked on a walk, picnics in the park or hearts drawn in chalk.

That little sign above is just the beginning of my adventure into CHALK.  That’s right, that sweet sign is made completely out of chalk.  But not your usual chalk.  Nope, this stuff is way easier and a lot less dusty.  It can even be permanent.

This old dog learned a new trick!

I don’t know about you, but I’m TERRIBLE at hand lettering..really, I’m just awful at it!  Gone are the jr. high/high school days where me and my peers worked tirelessly on our penmanship.  And although I’m sure the teachers didn’t appreciate it, what were we to do, text messaging hadn’t been invented yet?!

Luckily, there’s a new AMAZING product out on the market!  It’s a fairly new company, but their products are outstanding…it’s Chalk Couture.

Chalk Couture is a line of chalk pastes and silk transfers that make creating your own gorgeous chalkboard creations.  The colors are vibrant, the process is easy and for someone like me who likes products that can do double-duty, it’s perfect!

Now we can finally do something more with all those chalkboard walls we’ve all painted in our houses, other than scratch random words on it that are never quite straight.

In the coming days I’m going to introduce you to this brand, their products and the awesome creations that I’m going to make with it.  If you’re impatient like me and want to know more right now, head on over to Chalked by Design and take a look at everything that is available.  This product cannot be purchased via retail, so message me with any questions you might have.
