9 Days ’til Christmas – Chalkboard Obsession

Today’s Giveaway is sponsored by: Me (I promise, it won’t be me everyday…really.)

All day 12 winners have been notified and I’ll be working on day 11 and maybe even 10 today. Thanks for stopping by and joining the fun! Only NINE more days ’til Christmas! Wow!

Y’all. Does anyone else here have an unhealthy obsession with chalkboards? I love that they are everywhere now! Chalkboard paint, signs, labels, jars & more! They can add such a personal touch to your home, package, or party. Plus, they are just so much fun! They do, however, make me envious of other’s handwriting! How does one get such perfect “font” onto your chalkboards?! There has to be a secret someone isn’t telling me.


Today’s Giveaway Prize!

9 lucky winners will walk away with 4 individual chalkboard labels!

Chalkboard chalkboard marker

1 of those nine lucky winners will also receive this full size chalkboard (Roughly 8.5×11) and chalkboard marker.
(Chalkboard markers are the GREATEST! It’s like the cleanliness of a whiteboard with the beauty of a chalkboard! A MUST for real chalk scrooges!)

To enter today’s giveaway, you must comment on this post.
Get an additional entry for sharing this post & letting me know you did.
(Yes, I’ll be checking.)

You have until 8am tomorrow to get your entry in!
(The post for the 8th day ’til Christmas will be up at that time.)

All winners will be notified within 48 hours of contest end. Prizes will not be mailed until AFTER Christmas, to help lighten the Christmas load of our post carriers.

Good luck, and I hope you win!

    Christmas is so much fun, excitement and anticipation for children and the biggest joy is watching their faces as the
    birth of Jesus draws near!

    I have to use a stencil and ruler for any fonts!!!

    I’ve recently discovered that there is “liquid chalk” and stencils…I might have to cheat and use that from time to time! I’m looking at a pantry re-hab and there will be chalkboard labels on apothecary jars…oh yes there will!

    If you’re a “real chalk” junkie like me, you can dip the chalk in water before writing and it comes out so smooth and pretty!

    I also am a lover of all things chalkboard!! Once I learned what “seasoning a chalkboard” was, I wa all about having chalkboard everywhere 🙂

      Why is my photo a Christmas tree…???

      • Ashley December 16, 2014 - 11:50 am Reply

        Probably because that is the photo linked to your gmail account?! Or wordpress, if you have it!

    White boards are so much easier to make pretty but chalk is just so classy. I never even thought of using a stencil before but that’s such a good idea.

    Chalkboards are fun! I remember in the 80’s I was so into chalkboards I remember decorating them and giving them as gifts. It was fun then and it’s fun now !

    I like your blog Ashley! I am a big fan of chalkboards but like so many, I struggle with making the fonts cute! I think with practice and tips (like dipping your chalk in water first!!) I’ll get some photo worthy designs!

      Thanks, Audra! I hope you’ll stick around for awhile 😉
      I know! I never know that handy tip Fallon shared! I will have to try it. I’m kind of partial to my chalkboard markers though!

    Wow. You ladies have the best ideas. Who doesn’t love a chalkboard. I haven’t tried the markers but oh I will. A friend of mine redid her daughters room and made the closet doors into a chalkboard. Very cool.

    I have to redo my chalkboards like 56 times before I’m happy. The struggle is real.

    I hate the sound of chalk on a chalk board but do love the markers. Will have to try the water trick! 🙂
