Chalkboard and announcements.

The novelty of chalkboard paint was first introduced to me through the blogging world, and soon after, I was smitten.  My older brother and I decided on the perfect spot to paint our first chalkboard, and I (of course) wouldn't wait the entire 24 hours for it to dry before drawing on the fresh surface. Nothing badly came about from my impatience, but like I said, I'm hopelessly smitten.


Also, I did graduate from high school this year. It's pretty surreal, but the graduation announcements are helping it sink in. Of course, I insisted on designing my own cards, and with the help of photoshop and a bit of time, it finally happened. I was too cheap to spend money on envelopes, so the pile of unwanted paper bags in our cupboards was finally put to use. Oh, and don't forget the washi tape. I love that stuff!

Small update on my life: it's been wonderful! Summer 2012 has been one of the best yet. How's yours been?

can't stop watching this kinfolk video

  3. Oh how pretty! I would totally freak if I had to use Photoshop for the invites (Photoshop + Anna Gray...Horror. Ha!). Yours are simply beautiful though. You're wanting to pursue graphic design, right? :)

  9. Wee! Congrats on graduating! I love Washi tape, but I need to get my hands on some. :/
    I love chalkboards! My mum bought some jars for the counter, put a strip of vinyl chalkboard paper across the front, and now we use chalkboard pens to label them. It's cute and fun!
