Chalk Ink is on the Mark

At the Shabby Chic Cottage Blog it's all about chalkboards today. Be sure to click you way through all the unique finds there. Recently I've posted about wanting to get a chalkboard so I am looking forward to seeing all the chalkboard creations today. I've also had a lot of people ask me about chalk ink. Chalk Ink is the new best thing! It applies smoothly...doesn't make a mess...and looks more vibrant and colorful than plain chalk.

Also, you can use it on plastic Tupperware to label and you'll feel organized in a snap! Get more creative and use chalkboard name tags to label dishes at a buffet dinner or for nameplates on a table setting.


You can pick some up at Michaels or order it on Amazon. Take a look at the fun colors you can choose from:

Earthy Colors

Basic White

Teddy Bear Brown

Cayenne Pepper

Smiley Face Yellow

Candy Corn Orange

Grape Jelly

Classic Colors

Now YOU know Starbuck's secret to their colorful and crystal clear writing on their display chalkboards! So excited to share with you all...Because we're always looking for the NEXT BEST THING ! !


P.S. I don't have a chalkboard yet, this is my sweet momma's. ;)

Those pens are just too cool. Wetting a piece of chalk makes it write much more smoothly, though. Thanks for the great tip! Hey, maybe you'll win the drawing and I'll send you a chalkboard!

Blessings,

That chalkboard ink looks very interesting, I'm going to have to look into it more! You'll get a chalkboard soon - it's hard not to want to fill your house with them after seeing all of the beautiful submissions today.

I'm hoping the chalk ink comes in sets at Michaels so I can use a coupon, it looks like so much fun! With all the great chalkboards Gina's party I'll bet you'll have one by the end of the weekend!
