friday pick me up


aint that the truth. I can't tell you how many times I hear people bashing on people/things/ideas they dislike. If they could just refocus that negative energy to what they do like or are passionate about- maybe then they would actually help someone.

Just a thought for this lovely friday- have a great labor day weekend!


ps >>> don't forget about the weekend giveaway I posted yesterday- winner is announced Tuesday morning!!!

oh the possibilities are endless >>> chalkboard paint

chalkboard walls, furniture, & decor is all the rage right now. I searched online and found numerous chalkboard items sold on major home sites. I was honestly shocked by some of the items prices because with some chalkboard paint or can of spray you can make items just like these being sold--- and for a fraction of the cost! Easy project for this long Labor Day weekend!
