This post should be called ” the misunderstood chalk board”. You see I have this rather cool chalk board door in my kitchen.
When I made it, I had visions of monthly ubercool graphics and drawings on it. Something to take the chalkboard with us through the seasons and special events.
Blame Pinterest, it is chockfull of beautiful chalkboard boards all the time. I thought how hard can it be.
Well I found out……
I should have known really.
Why on earth did I think that drawing on a chalk board was different from drawing on paper. I totally suck at drawing anything.
I flunked Kindergarten totally. Not that they did ‘Kindergarten graduation’ in my day, way too old for that stuff. But anyway, if they had, I think it would have been the one exam in my life that I could not pass. Cutting in a straight line, drawing a circle by hand, draw a figurine that isn’t a stick figure, write something with consistent letters that don’t slope like the Swiss Alps? Nope, I can’t do any of these things if my life depended on it.
So now I live with this misunderstood chalk board. She is waiting for a chance to wish the world a Merry Christmas in beautiful lettering, she is so ready to receive beautiful drawings of Christmas trees and flying angels. She’d love to shout out to the world to spread Joy and Give Thanks.
Instead she has to settle for my level of Christmas chalkboard doodles…..
And a string of lights and a garland of stars……
…… at least she has that…..
And so do I 🙂
Paper star garland sewed up the same way as I did with my Christmas mantel star garlands.
And for your information. Fijne Kerst means Merry Christmas in Dutch. So now my humble chalk board has sent you holiday wishes in two languages!
