since it decided to snow 8 inches the last couple of days...
many of my friends have used it, but this was the first time i used it.
i kept thinking about all the stuff i could paint with it.
i turned my thrift store vintage tray into a chalkboard for my kitchen.
first i primed the front and partially the back with kilz spray paint. (another of my favorite things)
you have to let it dry a few days before you can write on it.
...and i realized i didn't have any chalk, when there was all that snow on the ground :(
so i braved the elements for a 89 cent box of chalk.
which i used to write this.
i also painted a little tin can with the chalkboard paint to hold my chalk.
ya know, in case i use up all the chalk, and we have another blizzard.
glue on a magnet and done.
but since it was just sitting there...
it involves a automobile, sleds, a garden hose, and preferably empty city streets, and it also doesn't
hurt to have a police officer with ya...just in case :)
oh, and bunch of people hanging out of the back of a suv telling the driver when we've lost someone.
...and taking photos.
meg's talby behind the lens.
in my opinion anyway.
