Joy To The World

Say what?!  Christmas in August?!  Well yea...hehehe.  It is almost 100 degrees here in Florida and I am working on Christmas.  I love Christmas and everything that goes with it - family, friends and most of all Jesus!  Crafting takes a little time, but sure is worth the time and effort when you get such awesome, professional results.




So what do you think?  .........Yea, fall is in the air, I love this time of year.
Here is my video:




So don't you want to make some homemade goodness?!  Just check the link below my bitmoji

Nothing says you care more then a homemade gift - All the time and heart put into it.
Have a great day!

No Drama Llama

Well, this little No Drama Llama gave me some sass yesterday and today.  I had a little problem with the chalk drying on the transfer thus, coming off of the chalkboard.  Phew, she made me work for this one!  I just took my craft mat, some chalk paste & a paint brush.  I squirted some water on the paste and then painted and dabbed the chalk on the spots that pealed off.  Waited until it dried and then put the second layer on for the nose, cheek and ear with Cherry Blossom Pink chalk paste.
I'm thinking she would look cute on a pillow using our Chalk Inks.  Hmmmm.......

Now my How To Video!




Love me some drama...NOT!

Vintage Truck With The Pumpkin Patch

Well it's time to decorate my Lazy Susan!  I painted my old wooden Lazy Susan last year with black chalk paint (a non Chalk Couture product not to be confused with paste or ink)  Fall is right around the corner so of course I brought out my Vintage Truck Transfer along with its Add-On for fall. Take a look 




Chalk Couture recently changed their chalk paste colors.  I will list the chalk paste color I used and in parentheses I will put the closest color they now have.
Chalk Paste:  Pumpkin (Pumpkin Pie), Sand (Fawn), White, Buttermilk & Honeydew

The Witch is? Catch The Replay Of My Live!

The Witch is?  In or Out?  That is the question.  LOL
A cute transfer from Chalk Couture.  I tried this live on facebook but of course a few mistakes.  Like I took this entire video on its side.  Go figure & I know better.  Oh well, hopefully you won't get a kink in your neck watching this.  :-/  It does have a lot of real tips in it, at least I think so.  Tell me what you think.



I am going to attached a cup hook for the 'In'.  The other side has the 'out'.  I used two transfers:  Halloween Fun & Witch Broom.  The chalk paste is:  White, Black, Bark, Honeydew and Purple (The new color is called Grape Soda)

And here is the replay of my live video:



The live are always a little longer then I like because, well they are live.  Just fast forward to the parts you want to see.  :-) One day I will get these lives down.  It is a lot harder then just chalking!  :-)

So I did another live today (I need the practice).  I showed how I corrected a few mistakes.  And it i…

The Snuggle Is Real

The Snuggle is Real.  Love this.  The back says 'hug me' all across it.  I used Couture Ink Eucalyptus.  Ink is so smooth and easy to work with.

Replay Of The Whys & Hows of Chalk Couture Paste

I like to go over every once in a while to explain just what Chalk Couture is and go over its different products.  I thought live videos were the easiest way to do this.  However, I am not the best at lives so bear with me please.  I welcome all your comments and questions.

Rustic Wreath House Sign

I have been thinking and working on this project for some time.  First I needed to distress this round of wood and stain it in a dark color so it would show up by the front entrance to our house.  1. I painted it white first and then applied the walnut stain with a rag & clear Minwax across the board.  2. Sanded around the edge and on different places on the board.  3.  I used both clear and dark Minwax to both protect the surface and to make it easier for the Chalk Paste application.




I used several transfers:  Rustic Wreath, Double Welcome, Life In Full Bloom and Gourmet Font.  Chalk paste colors are:  Custard, Peachy, Mint, and Brick.  I will use several coats of a protective topcoat since we live in Florida with very humid weather.

Here is my video:

Gone Fishing on a Pillow!

Gone Fishing on a Pillow!




I love using Chalk Couture Inks!  They go on so smooth and always achieve professional results.  So nice for a non-artist like me.  Makes me feel like an artist!  Yea Me!  No more stick figures......well not with Chalk Couture anyway.  I am making some pillows for some good friends of ours...hope they like them!  I used Chalk Couture ink colors:  Storm, Eucalyptus, Black, Red, silver, and copper.  Pillows are so fun.....I'm thinking of a snuggle pillow...hmmmm.  Keep watching.

As always my video with the how to:




Keep on Chalkin!

Bathroom Etiquette

Ok, I saw a sign once that read 'You keep peeing on the seat and I will use your toothbrush to clean it! ...Love mom'  Made me laugh, however I don't think
I would do that.  This is a lot more basic & I love it!




I just got an inexpensive frame from my local store, added white card stock and then I used black velvet paste on the Bathroom Etiquette transfer directly on the glass! This is the transfer and ink I used:



Bathroom Etiquette Silk Screen Transfer







Black Velvet Chalkology Paste
