Yesterday I hosted another craft party and this time we made some chalkboard paint storage jars. I've wanted to do something with chalkboard paint for months now, and in my newest favorite book, there is the perfect idea to combine all these empty glass jars I've been saving along with chalkboard paint! It's a beautiful thing. I love it when a plan comes together. I'm still scraping the remnants of chalkboard paint off my fingers. Beautiful finished products to come...


I've also wanted to use magnetic paint for months years now too, and since I bought chalkboard paint, I might as well buy magnetic paint (duh) and find something to do with it. Well, imagine that, I did. I decided to paint the door to the computer/media/craft/man room with magnetic paint. This photo is before the third coat, and so far, these magnets seem to be holding up. Still scraping that paint off my fingers too. Stay tuned...


...and by the end of today I felt like Moses here. Wishing I could nap under the cactus plant as well. And look just as adorable and cute. Without paint on my fingers.
