For Once, a Chalkboard I Didn’t Make

I was gonna make one myself, but then I found exactly what I was looking for on sale at Hobby Lobby (30% off of $7.99).

I’ve been working hard to get my etsy shop ready for the holiday shopping season, and was growing tired of all the things I wanted to get done scribbled on scraps of paper scattered around my desk. Then when I saw this image on Pinterest I was inspired to make a chalkboard backdrop for photographing some of my listing items…

All the Frills

And bam, I got the idea to make a chalkboard that could double as a photo backdrop and to-do list.

I was at Hobby Lobby to pick up a piece of foam core to paint with chalkboard paint, but when I saw one with the perfect dimensions just sitting there waiting for me I decided to give myself a break and not DIY something for the first time in a while. I actually love the unfinished frame. The only downside is that I guess I have to erase it every time I want to use it for photos, but I’m still kind of unsure about venturing away from my standard white background anyway.

I’m so proud of how much I’ve done to get my shop ready! I usually have a big backlog of items to be listed, but everything on my shelves at this very moment is actually up for sale. I even bought supplies yesterday to craft a few more upcycled creations (including doily hoops-I’m going to try affixing it with fusible interfacing). My goal was to have it all done by Thanksgiving and so far things are looking pretty good! If you want to see all the cool new stuff I’ve got you can check it out here. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
