This was my feature post over at CHOOSE TO THRIVE last month.
Traveling chalkboard buddies.
Living here in Turkey has put my life in perspective and I am very glad at times for not having everything at my finger tips it is good to live simply and 'use what I have'.
There are no big, nice, absoulutly fun craft or fabric stores over here so instead of always wishing for something else I started using what I had and that has become
my theme for this season:
"Honor God, live simply, use what you have and give the rest away."
Well let's start creating... with what I have on hand.
|~Really the first order of business for me is to get a cup of tea. |
~I had some left over chalkboard paint that I brought back from the U.S. and I have been wanting to use it up.. so
~I Grabbed a cardboard box. I have several. :)
~Here my little traveling chalkboard buddies are painted and dry but not quite ready for travel.
My girls helped make these three rectangle ones for our friends who will be traveling.
but the shaped ones took me a bit longer.
~They wipe off great with a damp rag or a wet wipe.
Hope you enjoyed this simple 'use what you have' creation.
