Chalk it Up

DIY decoration projects using Chalkola chack markers on Gift Style Blog Gave That

In between a bajillion work projects (my idea of heaven!) and sitting here inhaling paint fumes I wanted to quickly show a time saver. Just as I was cleaning some brushes to start on these Halloween party pieces it dawned on me these chalk markers sent over by the kind folks at Chalkola would probably work out just as well. Now these are supposed to be used on non-porous surfaces ala Just Married scrolled on windshields and bistro sandwich boards so they can be wiped off but, for something more permanent, these have been great in place of paint. For more protection I sprayed a few coats of clear varnish on top. Oh, and they're completely scentless.

C'est La Vie

French words gift wrap style on Gift Style Blog Gave That

All the French sayings popping up on things lately, especially unexpected places such as across a clutch or on the brim of a sun hat, have been too fun to pass up. I've been picking up little things here and there along with sprucing up plainly wrapped white gifts. Channeling Catherine Baba, J'adore!

All that's needed is pipe cleaners (fluffy black yarn glued on works too), white wrapping paper and grosgrain ribbon.

For more inspiration see the gift wrapping area over here.
