Yep, I crafted!

Okay, so that might be a slight exaggeration as this isn't super crafty...but when you haven't made anything in months...this is something to be proud of. 

I decided to put my awesome new Martha Stewart turquoise chalkboard paint to use. I needed to make some gifts for Manny's teachers for Thanksgiving, so I thought a chalkboard frame would be a simple and inexpensive thing to put together. As I mentioned, the chalkboard paint came from Michael's ($5.99 but you can use a coupon to get it cheaper), and the frame is also from there ($2.99). I painted two coats of chalkboard paint on the frame, then put a piece of scrapbook paper as filler until they put a picture inside. (I'm still debating on if I want to put a picture of Manny in it instead.) I wrapped the end with some twine and stuck a piece of chalk through it. Very simple, and I think it makes a fun little gift.

I am determined to get back into the crafting spirit, so hopefully I'll be back with some fun things soon. Have a great weekend, friends! :)
