Club Couture Transfer- Let’s Get Lost

How many of us just wanna get lost right now? We cannot really travel freely, and things are so different…sometimes unbelievable. I find myself looking for pleasant diversions and hoping that someday very soon, we all wake up and find that our current situation is just all a terrible dream. I consider myself very fortunate in that I have plenty of calming distractions here at home with crafting. Being a Chalk Couture Designer allows me to immerse myself in all sorts of craftiness at a substantial discount, and I can always rely on my monthly Club Couture Transfer to be a pleasant surprise. July’s Club Couture Subscription box is no exception.

This is shown on our 9×12″ Pallet Sign, a one-time use surface that is just adorable.  If you need to grab one of your own, you can find it >>> HERE.

Motivation and Inspiration

Finding motivation and inspiration in my work is a complete Blessing to me. Around every Chalk Couture Corner I find joy in the huge things and especially in the small things. Sometimes, it is simply our corporate leaders’  attention to the minute details propelling my progressing success. Other times it is in the personal touches that make each one of us feel special. I feel very fortunate and at home with Chalk Couture.

Motivation and Inspiration in Great Abundance

Our Chalk Couture Leadership Conference was last month and it completely touched my soul. Each interaction with the corporate team made me feel as if we had known each other since childhood. Even as a first time attendee,  I was quite surprised at how comfortable it felt to be there with people I had never met in person.

For reasons (at first) unknown, the Chalk Couture Spring Summer 2020 Collection release felt very personal. Each of the designs seemed to hold some kind of meaning for me. Each quote or verse evoked a memory or a chuckle. The profound influence of nature in the designs also brought back many amazing memories. Call me weird, but I was so reminded of why I fell in love with my husband in these new designs.

CRESCENDO

I suspect a partial reason for why I felt such immense connection with the entire collection is that I had the honor of meeting our Chalk Couture Art Director, Eric Clegg.

Just imagine having the opportunity to peruse the carefully curated collection of complete artistry all in one room.  A stunning symphony of creativeness fills the entire space.  Add to that imagery, the thrill of the orchestrating Maestro being in that same room, taking a few moments to chat with you. This is a special memory that will stay with me. It all felt quite surreal  and was a definite ‘moment’  for this gal.

Wasn’t this supposed to be about Motivation and Inspiration?

This post began as a segway into introducing a Chalk Couture Transfer that spoke to me and encouraged motivation and inspiration. There are absolutely many stunning designs that I am anxious to own and create for my own art. This particular transfer design is very direct and to the point. I usually take the long route to saying what I mean, but this message is  perfect and concise.

Introducing my new motivation and inspiration mantra for 2020.

I am happy to announce that I now offer two types of  Chalk Couture “Try Me” Kits . That’s TWO NEW FUN opportunities to get your Chalk Groove movin’ .

 

chalk couture try me kit

When I first joined Chalk Couture, I didn’t have the opportunity to sample or try the products beforehand. I did not know a local Independent Designer, nor did I think to even ask if such a thing was available. Luckily, Chalk Couture now provides Designers with the tools to make our own Sample/ “Try Me” Kits.

Either of the special “Try Me” mini bundles is not only the perfect sampling to explore some Chalk Couture craftiness, but also the perfect little gift for just about everyone!!

The contents of the Basic Chalk Couture “Try Me” Kit contains…

  • (1) 3 inch round Chalk Couture Boutique Board Chalkable Chip
  • (1) Chalk Couture Mini Transfer  (designs vary)
  • (1) single-use packet of Chalkology™ Paste, .19 fl oz.  (color will vary)
  • (1) mini squeegy
  • (1) instructions and coupon for a future purchases

The retail value of this Basic Try “Try Me” is $7.00 plus tax/shipping

 

‘Talk Chalky to Me’ Upgraded Chalk Couture “Try Me” Kit

Upgraded Chalk Couture Try It Kit - sample Kit - that chalky gal - talk chalky to me dot com

The  upgraded ‘Talk Chalky to Me’ Chalk Couture Try Me Kit includes:

  • (1) 3 inch round Chalk Couture Boutique Board Chalkable Chip
  • (2) Chalk Couture Mini Transfers  (designs vary)
  • (1) single-use packet of Chalkology™ Paste, .19 fl oz.  (color will vary)

Now that you have the basics, allow me to share how you may soon find one in your mailbox!  I invite you to join my V.ery I.mportant F.riends Facebook Group, where you may just happen upon a “Try Me” Special Offer. ( You see, company policy prohibits me from sharing any discounts/specials publicly, so only my VIF Group members gets to see the ‘cool’ stuff.)

If you prefer, you can friend request me on Facebook at Jana Zuercher or you may use this contact form.

Personally, I am never one to pay full retail when I know I can find my way to a discount or freebie, therefore, I would never expect you to either!  I am looking forward to hearing from you!

END of year special

If you have never tried Chalk Couture, the new year is a perfect time to give it a try.  Whether you consider yourself crafty or feel you don’t have a crafy bone in your body, Chalk Couture is about the simplest, most unique and beautiful craftiness I know. A few weeks ago, I had 9 and 11 year olds using our reusable silkscreen transfers and Chalk Paste for the very first time. The entire process took only minutes and ended up with two perfect artsy projects for their rooms.

I would never encourage anyone to wait for an End of the Year Special to give Chalk Couture a try. Of couse since it is here now, I am definitely saying that it is time! This is the best special I have offered since joining this amazing company, so why not take advantage of it. End of the Year Specials don’t come around each month, right?

Motivational Monday

motivational monday with That Chalky Gal

Here it is. As unimaginative (on my part) as it is, in hopes of brightening your day, I am offering up Motivational Monday inspiration to start the week in grand fashion.

I have no earth-shattering, self authored wisdom to depart this Monday, but I DO have quite a collection of favorite sayings and quotes. Today I share them with you.

Please feel absolutely free to ‘borrow’… ‘steal’….or ‘share’ any of these graphics as you please.

mmotivational monday - that chalky gal

Whether it is Motivational Monday or any other simple day of the week, we sometimes need that one quick moment to change the direction the day is headed. We have that control over our own attitudes.

motivational monday at that chalky gal

Whether we are the happy-go-lucky type of being or a complete ‘control freak’ there will always be a time in which we should just surrender, have faith, and move on with our lives.  As difficult as it seems, there is a sense of calm that usually follows that release of ‘what was’.

Challenging ourselves is often times all  it takes to break the rut, pushing us to grow beyond imagination.  I personally have a slight fear of doing Facebook Lives. I don’t know why (well, actually I do but that is another post for another time) but I do know no matter what I need to just do it scared. Our Chalkpreneurs TEAM members will tell you that I preach this continually. Growth comes from stepping toward that that makes us feel insecure or afraid.

We all have naysayers amongst us. The solution to overcoming their words is simple. Say thank you and then move on! Having a sense of humor and desire for adventure can be very rewarding.

motivational monday with that chalky gal

Luck? What is luck? Success comes from putting forth continual effort until the task is complete.

So, what is YOUR favorite motivational reminder?

 

A Motivational Monday Collection can also be found on my growing Pinterest Board at That Chalky Gal.
