I Do Do

Good morning! I am here!!! Thank you for all the emails and messages. I have not been able to be very creative for 6 weeks!!! Yes, that is why I have been grumpy!

Anyway...thanks to Crafting Desert Divas, I was invited to participate in their BLOG Hop! Hooray.

I love the new Chalkboard craze. For a cute Bridal Shower or Wedding Gift, take 2 wine glasses. Wash them and then use window cleaner so they are nice and clean and shiny. Use Chalkboard Paint to paint the bottom of the stem and base. Let dry and paint with a 2nd coat. I recommend a foam sponge brush.

After it is dry...take chalk and write. The couple could have candlelight dinners and write special messages. I wrote His and Hers.

Try this fabulous'll be painting EVERYTHING!!!


Now this gift offsets another wedding gift that I made for our nephews' wedding. Now...there is a Home Store Gift Card in there along with the camping toilet, toilet seat covers, toilet paper, magazines, toilet humor books and hand sanitizer!!! But they go camping with us every year and we knew this would be a hit! Here is the card that went with it!



  1. Linda this is a great idea. I'm going to have to try that chalkboard paint. Thank you so much for being a guest designer at Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party!
