Here’s the game:
Let’s see if you can see a pattern:
Did you guess all chalkboard items?
But look closer... what is missing?
Where is the chalk?! Well that is my little pet peeve. I HATE chalk. My mother-in-law says hate is a strong word, isn’t it? Okay, let’s use, dislike. And along with Beckie, here are my reasons why:
1. It gets on your hands.
2. It is hard to write evenly.
3. It smears.
4. It smells.
5. It comes in pastels.
I just love the look of all these chalkboard items but I have never wanted to decorate them with chalk so I have resorted to a permanent marker that looks like chalk, magnets, or tags. Until Beckie, my other chalk disliker, tipped me off on Chalkink. She was having a giveaway on her site and since I didn’t win, I thought I needed to buy my own and get writing.
This is the same stuff that they use at Panera, Starbucks, WholeFoods, and JuiceStop, and all those other places that the chalkboards look incredibly beautiful and look like they were written in real chalk. I have just always thought some artist goes around town and gets paid big bucks to do her work. But now I know it is Chalkink! You can use it on almost any surface and it just wipes right off with water, but it doesn’t smear and it doesn’t leave any chalky residue.
So I drew pictures on my chalkboard buckets.
I wrote titles on the pool chalk board:
And I am using them on my picture frame monthly calendar that I hung on the chalkboard in my office.
And yes, wipes right off!
(I know…it’s not October yet, but close enough for me!)
Where to get it?
