Does anyone else have little elves that come and steal every spare scrap of paper available for little arts and crafts projects? My daughter's teacher must seriously think we are crazy because I am always sending in notes on little scraps of handouts that she has sent home. She is probably wondering why i don't invest in a notepad. It is not that i don't buy them, it is that when i do, they disappear and I can never find it when i need it or if i do find it there is one giant letter from the alphabet on each page. There must be something exciting to a 5 year old about having all that paper stuck together to write one little thing on each page and flip back and forth.
Either way, I do need something in my kitchen to write little memos to myself. And since I have an ample amount of chalk thanks to the big mama chalkboard in my kitchen, i decided to make a little chalkboard baby, to set on my counter. I went to JoAnns to see what i could find and as i was in the wood aisle, i saw a few cheap little nick knacks that reminded me of a frame these clever girls at Shanty2Chic came up with. So I bought some similar stuff, and got to working.
