Upcycled Vintage Window & Chalk Ink Love

Photobucket
Three houses ago…my husband and I had a 1937 bungalow. When we had the windows replaced I saved a few. For what? I wasn’t sure at the time, but I knew I could come up with uses for them.

I decided this one would make a perfect kitchen nook chalkboard. I busted out the trusty chalkboard spray paint and got to work. Yup, sprayed it right on to the glass of the window! Then I discovered Chalk Ink!

These markers write on a multitude of surfaces and wipe off with a little water – just like chalk!
I used it on some glass containers I had for coffee, nuts and grains.

I love all the fun colors and how easy they are to clean up.

Happy creating! What are you working on this Wednesday?

Christmas in May?

It must be Christmas in May because I am on a roll with the gift making!

A sweet friend of mine has started taking yoga and so of course, I had to make her a yoga bag! I heart yoga so much and dream of the day when I can get there more often. Until then I am happy to create these handy bags to keep a yoga mat snug.

Although this friend (OK fine! It’s Holly!) could make one of these herself, I still wanted her to have something special from me. She is one of the most giving and thoughtful people I know and she deserves 100 yoga bags!

When I get back from vacation I will be making some more of these yoga bags and listing them in the shop ($20). Use the email button on the side if you are interested in one and want to see some fabrics for a custom order.
