DIY Hanging Chalkboard

The journey to transforming my house into a Christmas wonderland continues! 
I'm loving all the chalkboards and Christmas printables I'm seeing on Pinterest these days, so much that I had to combine the two ideas into one! And this craft is soooo easy.


Did you know that those big box hardware stores actually sell pre-chalkboard boards??? I just discovered this over the weekend and I'm super excited about it. 
All I (aka my husband) had to do was cut the board to size and drill two holes into the top. I strung a jute rope through the holes and tied a knot at the ends.
The next part is the hardest...try to write as pretty as you possibly can with real chalk!


Once I got it hung on the wall I realized it needed a little something else. That's when I decided to through together a little burlap garland. I made bows out of felt and hot glued them on. I tied knots throughout the string and then add the little flannel flags with the sewing machine. Easy-peesy! 


The best part of it all is that when Christmas is over I can use the chalkboard to write whatever else I want! The possibilities are endless.
And in case you don't hear from me before then...Happy Thanksgiving!
I'm thankful for you :)

High-Waisted Sash Skirt {Tutorial}

Ok so I'm officially on a skirt kick as this is my third one in 2 weeks. With spring in the air I just can't help but want to live in spring things! This diy skirt is similar to the other one I did but this one has a sash and is fuller...which I think is way fun! To purchase this exact fabric go to my etsy shop! If you're not up for making it you're in luck! I now sell it on my etsy shop too! You should also check it out on my friend over at Stylish Petite!

Sweet as a Berry Little Girl Dress {tutorial}

With Valentine's day lurking around the corner it's only natural for a blogger like myself to begin thinking of cute ways to incorporate the holiday. When I came across this strawberry fabric I fell in love with it's sweetness and decided that I would make my daughter a Valentine's day inspired dress. You may remember my Valentine's day inspired onesie from last year...Now if only my daughter would get up and walk in it instead of scoot around on her booty getting the beautiful fabric all dirty! Sigh...someday!
