Chalkboard Reminders

CIMG0896Sometimes I need a little reminder so that I don’t get too caught in my own humanness and selfishness…CIMG0897 But thanks to my little chalkboards, they keep me in check. ;)

I recently bought some chalkboard pens.  I had heard of them before but was not quite convinced they were that necessary.  I eventually talked myself into them and I am surprisingly much happier with them than regular chalk.  Remember my white canisters for the kitchen that I put chalkboard contact paper on?  You can see one hiding in the right corner of the above picture.  Well, these pens have made my life so much easier when it comes to these canisters.  Whenever I use them or put them away in the cabinet I always rub the chalk off.  Not anymore with these pens.  They stay put until you wipe it off with a wet cloth. 

I bought mine at Michael’s with a coupon.  But you can find just white here or more variety of colors here

What does {or should} your chalkboard say to you?

  1. I had a chalk wall for a while... I used to have lots of good messages writen on it. It really is a good way to remind ourselves of the beauty and simplicity that life can offer. Have a lovely day! Vanessa

  2. Right now, my Kitchen chalkboard is blank, but I have a tile by my sink with a Bible verse on it. :)

  3. thanks for the suggestion! where are the pens in michaels? with the paint pens?

  4. I've been debating over whether or not to buy those for a while now. Thanks for the info, will probably grab some next time I'm at Michael's (and when I don't actually forget to bring my coupon with me!)
