Look at this new product!!!! Its made by Folk Art. PINK it comes in 7 colors. I wanted to try it out before I got like a charm!!
I'll put this pink chalkboard on Ebay.
Stacey and I went to the Famous Iris garden...its about a mile from where I live. Obama visited a couple of weeks ago. Martha Stewart visited last year..has put it in a couple of issues of her mag. It really is beautiful...acres and acres of beauty.
Sadie Olive is doing a "red" week. Here is my RED poppie
14 done...36 to go. My local art store had a few, they ordered 50 for me. They didn't arrive, and I have a deadline (I think he forgot to put in the order) anyway 10 came in. What are the chances of them not coming in on the next order...I really want to have these done and sent by next Friday and he's HOPING they will be in on FRIDAY...I'm getting a little I got on the phone, found 3 shops that had off to Portland we the end of a long day, I now have my 50 canvas. So, heres the story, I was contacted by some gal who saw one of these on my ebay and asked if I could do 50 and have them shipped to her for 2 different baby showers. She said she was in Georgia. After negotiations I found out she was from this company...Entertainment Design Group Check it out if you have a chance...its a "WOW" company, I am honored that I was contacted.

Oh my goodness! What a beautiful "chore" - and to think - each one is an original - no assembly line here! They will be lucky recipients for surer!
Do you use a bottled black chalkboard paint as well? I tried the spray on and it's OK - but doesn't completely erase - but of course I just used a cloth - maybe it needs to be damp?
Anyway - colored chalkboard paints sounds....perfect!
Have a great day and thanks for sending all of us virtual flowers today!

Your chalkboard turned out darling! The pink is so different, I love it of course!

How wonderful that you found all your canvas to paint on, wow, what an honor that was to be able to get a big order like that!!!


Adrienne said...

Different colors of chalkboard paint? That's a great idea! I'll have to check it out. What fun!

If you live about a mile from the 'Famous Iris Garden' you live really, really close to my kids! I knew you were in the same town but now I'm guessing you are even closer to my dear ones than I thought. I need to stop by and see the gardens soon. Before they are gone!
