    Oh, man, that is a cool idea, Doris. I hope everyone checks back to see your tip!

    Oh, that makes me happy to see! Thanks, Pam!

    Cloudy skies here in northern Minnesota where I'm at our cabin. Sun is just trying to peek through some of the clouds. How are your big skies of Montana today?

    We had a pretty hard frost yesterday morning, but today is supposed to be in the 80's and the sky is as blue as can be with not a cloud in sight.

  22. Hello Merr, I totally LOVE Mungerre's "teacher's gift" she made and I almost forgot about it in my favs! Thank you for mentioning this again. I will have to go to Joanne Fabric's to see if they still have something like this in stock! I would love to see more hybrid projects like this!

    Hi Jane!

    I'm trying to get everyone to take up the chalkboard look! LOL! I think it is a fun trend and it brings back so many memories for me as a teacher who used to try to dress up my chalk writing on the blackboard in my 2nd grade classroom. Those were the days before white boards and dry erase markers, of course!

    Francine, I agree! More hybrid examples using chalk would be great. On my Pinterest board there is a pin with chalkboard Christmas gift tags.

    Betty Jo, I think my favorite chalk alphabets are the script alphabets:

    especially this graceful script!

  26. Some tips for using chalk alphabets to make quote posters or cards:


    Use a variety of different chalk alphabets including a mix of script and manuscript styles.
    Alternating script and manuscript styles works well!
    Be sure to slant or tilt some of your lines for variety.
    Banners and ruled lines between lines of text make it more interesting and eye catching.


    If you want a ruled line or a banner or an arrow or other embellishment to look darker against the chalk background, just duplicate the layer and merge.

  29. Monthly Chalkboard Pages

    As many of you may have noticed, my version of Project Life this year is a monthly chalkboard page matched with a facing page of photos from that month. Here's how I started in January:

    January was matched with this photo page:
