Transforming Cheap Dollar Store Planters

These past few months I have been MIA, but I am back now with this short video of me transforming cheap Dollar Store planters. I love taking inexpensive items and personalizing them to fit my decor.

Do you have some items around the house that you would like to refresh and restyle? I am very thankful for finding Chalk Couture paste and transfers three years ago. I can easily transform just about anything I can imagine.

Secret Elf or Secret Santa?

Secret Elf or Secret Santa? It is that time of the year when we draw names for a fun gift exchange with coworkers, sorority sisters, or maybe even family members.  No matter what you call your gifting festivities, there is always plenty of fun to be had. (Be sure to check out your free Secret Elf Gift at the bottom of the page.)

I have participated in many secret sister swaps that lasted for the entire month of December where “little surprises” were left for the recipient on multiple days. That can be fun, but it also can make a dent in your pocketbook. To be honest, being creative for several days a week kind of wears me out. (no… I am NOT a Mrs. Scrooge… just not always as creative in that respect)

How does YOUR Secret Elf Gift Exchange roll?

The Secret Elf or Secret Santa exchanges that I prefer begin with a questionnaire being filled out by all participants. After being sealed up in envelopes. each of us draws one of the envelopes. Personally, I like having suggestions from my Secret Elf recipient, especially if they are not a DIY enthusiast or crafter. (‘cuz you KNOW I have that crafty gal covered, right?)

This seems like a great time to add that I can sure help you with the crafters on YOUR list!!! (shameless plug here)

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.

End of Year Specials for That Chalky Gal V.I.F. Members

It is the time of year for all the end of year specials and This Chalky Gal is definitely jumping on that offer bandwagon. Offering specials to my V.ery I.mportant F.riends Group members is ALWAYS so much fun, but this end of year blowout is the best I have offered all year long. Unfortunately, Chalk Couture policy prevents me from publicly presenting my specials to you here, but never fear! Join my Chalky Gals VIF (very important friends) Facebook Group to get the scoop.

end of year special

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?

Disclaimers: Only V.I.F. members receive this offer. Membership to VIF is not open to current designers. End of Year Specials available until noon CST Dec. 31st and does not include any already discounted offers/specials. 

Family Chalk Time is the Best Time!

Family Chalk Time is always fun! Not too long ago I was blessed with the opportunity to get together with family for a few days. Both daughters were there, as well as both grandbabies. (ALWAYS an awesome bonus). We decided to do a short bit of chalking while Dad and Grandpa watched the li’l munchkins.

Hais is positioning the different pieces of our Happy Fall Y’all silkscreen transfer on a artist’s canvas. This was the first time we had chalked together.

She made quick work of her artwork and promptly displayed in on her new fireplace mantel.

family chalk time - happy fall y'all

This was just a quick little impromptu mother-daughter chalk session that I hope will become a regular event with both daughter.  Crafting together is always a fun family bonding moment.

I would love to see photos of your Family Chalk Time or Crafting. Feel free to share on my Facebook page at That Chalky Gal. Did you know that I offer virtual Chalk Couture workshops? Send me a message for more info!
