DIY Craft Day

OK I nearly died as soon as I saw this DIY chalkboard (above) over at Full House. Isn't it just the most beautiful thing you have ever seen? Needless to say I am searching ruthlessly for a mirror just exactly the same as this one to make! I have however already completed a small one to go in Yasmin's room as you can see above.

I also got the old hot glue gun out yesterday and started making these easy yet effective button hair clips......I have a slight obsession with buttons/yo yo's and the hot glue gun. (Note to self: Don't turn out like the lady from Oprah who hot glue guns her house/life).... Anyway these are a cheap yet effective way to decorate your toddlers hair. Today my little daughter Yasmin is debuting in my blog - yes the small child you see above with a hair colour that rivals Jennifer Annistons, and why is it that no amount of colouring will get mine like that? Mind you she was being a right royal little princess about taking the photo's and didn't want to co-operate, all she wanted to do was draw on the chalkboard! Toddlers ehhhh?????

I am curious about the DIY chalkboard. What surface did you use under the chalkboard paint? I want to make one!

All I did was chalkboard paint the backing of the picture frame. Easy Peasy!
