One of my favorite items at my daughter's Horses and Hairbows party last month was the oversized menu board behind the food table. Everyone at the party commented on it and wanted to know how long it took me to letter a chalkboard with that much detail. Well here's the secret - I didn't hand draw a single letter and that's not even a real chalkboard!

I don't know about where you live but here in North Carolina we experienced a longer than normal winter. The chilly, and very wet, weather kept up inside for far too long this spring, but now that it's starting to warm up it's hard to keep anyone inside, which is a great change of pace!
Just because we're outside doesn't mean that either of my kids want to give up drawing and coloring, though, they just take up a new art medium - sidewalk chalk. It's fun but it's messy and the chalk is always rolling down our sloped driveway. When Ann Kelle was generous enough to send me some of her new fabrics I took one look at the cute outdoorsy patterns and knew that we needed a sidewalk chalk apron!

Just tape off some stripes with washi or painter's tape, dab your paint on with a foam pouncer, and peel the tape off while the paint is still wet. I also painted a daisy jar topper that I had in my party stash to match, it's holding my topiary in place without having to use unsightly styrofoam.
Go Gators and bring on football season, I can hardly wait!!!
