We have a great section of our kitchen wall painted as a blackboard and it is fabulous! I cannot recommend it highly enough for all sorts of lists and messages.
I was quite taken by this blackboard calendar which would be an easy DYI project for the weekend. Isn’t it great?
….and start your handmade advent calendar now. Each year I have great plans, intentions, ideas….and at the end of November I find myself a little panicked. In 2011 we had a ‘uber’ cool advent calendar made of black paper coffee cups, threaded with brown twine and decorated with red numbers. Each cup contained a special advent verse and a sweet treat.
I have found so much inspiration on pinterest. Have you planned your advent?
