Why hello there Thursday!
I think we're almost at the end of the Birthday items but today I'm sharing one (possibly) last related item with you.
For party favours I wanted to do something different - something fun, useful, personal and that would last. Enter chalkboard clipboards.
The next couple of days were spent getting some help from pinterest, sourcing foolscap sized plan clipboards and some blackboard paint;
|Tip: tie the clips back to make painting underneath easier.|
painting (2x coats), playing around with paper and modge-podging;
playing with ribbons, trims and glue;
priming the board (by rubbing chalk all over it, then wiping with a dry cloth);
and lastly writing messages.
Each one had a collection of activities on it. All rainbow and coloured themed - maizes colouring pages from awesome designer Tinch, paper people, etc.
Each child got to choose one and take it home. There were neutral and boy themed boards and pictures among all the girly ones, so none of the boys had to settle for pink or flowers or birds!
Dont forget the giveaway for March is this entertaining book: The New Zealand Woman. An 80 year visual history of NZ fashion, food, home and of course women. In addition the winner can pick one (or two or three) patterns to the combined/total value of $10 on Craftsy!
Thanks for stopping in today and I'm looking forward to seeing all the wonderful things you've been up to!
Have a happy day!
