Creative Inspiration & Papercraft: Washi Cards

December 15, 2020

Sometimes creative inspiration can be hard to find. But finding a video of washi cards was just what I needed. The problem is that I am the slowest crafter on the planet. I like to do things in layers and pause between each to let everything dry and ponder what to do next. I will … Read more

Monochrome T-Shirts – My New Trend

October 21, 2020

T-shirts are my jam. I love making them, wearing them and giving them away. And my new obsession is monochrome inking. It started with a purple tie-dye T that I wanted to do the Believe in Yourself transfer on in Regal. I was surprised how much I loved it! I kind of expected that the … Read more

A Day of Fixing Mistakes – What About That Hex?

October 18, 2020

It was a day of fixing mistakes here. It is rare that I have mistakes that need fixing because with chalk, you can just wipe mistakes away and start over. But every once in awhile, things come together in a way that makes something seem un-fixable. That was the case with this hex design. I … Read more

My Magic Purse

My Magic Purse

September 28, 2020

I haven’t carried a purse in years. Mostly because when I did, I spent half my day running back to where I just was because I forgot it. And partly because I was always destroying them. Broken zippers, broken straps, torn pockets – all that kind of thing. I am rough on things that have … Read more

Purple Ink on Purple T

Purple Ink on Purple T – Believe in Yourself

August 19, 2020

Purple ink on a purple T, would that work? Turns out it did. Perfectly. Every time new transfers are released, I make a list of what I must have. It is surprisingly small. I then make a list of what I want and that list is much longer! But when I saw the Believe in … Read more

Fierce & Fabulous

Fierce & Fabulous Inked on Orange

August 13, 2020

Fierce & Fabulous was my first pick from the catalogue. I bought it for the huge ampersand. I thought of so many uses for it. I didn’t think I was likely to use the transfer as it was. But when I saw it, I immediately needed to make a T-shirt. I could clearly see it … Read more

Wood Bowl

Old Wood Bowl & My Aloe Vera

August 10, 2020

This old wood bowl has been around my house as long as I can remember. I long ago stopped using it for food when the finish started to break down. It has been used for a lot of things besides food since but for the last few years it has been sitting on top of … Read more

Nothing is safe

Nothing is safe! Inking My Dish Drying Mat.

August 8, 2020

Nothing is safe from being inked around here. We have a dishwasher. It is brand new, never used. I do dishes by hand. I find doing dishes relaxing and the hot water on my hands always eases my arthritis. But I am not a shopper. I never shop unless I absolutely have to and even … Read more

Jeans and Ink

Jeans and Ink – An old trend resurfaces.

July 26, 2020

Ink on denim is one of my favourite things to do. When I was a teenager, I used to dress up my jeans with fabric paint and embroidery thread. The more mistakes I made with the fabric paint, the more embroidery thread I used. Eventually, I guess it became too much work because I stopped. … Read more

A thing for tins

A Thing for Tins – and Peace.

June 10, 2020

I have a thing for little tins. I never know what to do with them, or what to put in them but I still really like them. When this little white one showed up I couldn’t resist chalking it. I sealed it as well so the design will last with a lot of handling. My … Read more

Today I Choose

Today I Choose Joy in Ink

June 7, 2020

Today I Choose Joy in Bright White ink on a grey t-shirt. I love inking! It has been forever since I have been out clothes shopping and it is not something I want to do yet. That has made me dig around my closet and dresser to find things I can ink. That is one … Read more

Love All

Love All on Small Pallet Sign

April 9, 2020

When the Club Couture transfer for May arrived, I saw it designed in the rainbow flag colours. So I pulled out a small pallet board and my paste right away. I love how this turned out and of course, the sentiment is awesome! Supply List: Pallet Sign (5½” x 7½”), Candy Apple, Orange Peel, Bumblebee, … Read more

Chalkology Paste on Paper – Egg Hunt Invite

March 24, 2020

You can use Chalkology Paste on paper with a little bit of preparation. The key is that you do not want the paper to stick to the transfer in a way that you can’t remove it. Use card stock or thicker paper for cutouts or cards. Try butcher’s paper for cutouts. Fuzz the transfer a … Read more

Live Deeply Another New Favourite

Live Deeply – Another New Favourite

March 21, 2020

The Live Deeply Collection of transfers has quickly become another new favourite. I was going to post that it was my new favourite and then I realized that I have more than one of those. The Feathered Friends Collection comes to mind. This one is the Live Deeply Collection – Octopus and I have used … Read more

Boots & Bling

Experimenting with Glitter – Boots & Bling

March 18, 2020

I wanted to try experimenting with glitter on chalk paste and what better transfer to try but Boots & Bling? It kind of sounds like it is calling for glitter. I had a board from the Board & Pillar Stand that was extra. I am going to use the stand with one of the house … Read more

Vintage Truck

Fresh Cut Vintage Truck on Odette

February 7, 2020

I had to get the Vintage Truck transfer as soon as I saw it! I got the Vintage Truck Add On transfer as well and immediately had to create something. Since I wanted to use the flowers in the back of the truck and  make the truck blue, I decided on a white board. I … Read more

Fresh Herbs

Fresh Herbs, Rosemary and Lavender on Pallet Sign

February 4, 2020

Fresh Herbs is my most used transfer. I spend a lot of time inking with this transfer. Everything from the bottom of a pant leg to tea towels and trays. This is the first sign I have made with it and I am loving the muted colours on the off-white background of the pallet sign. … Read more

Live Simply

Live Simply & Modern Floral on Pallet Sign

February 1, 2020

It is rare that I seal a project. Chalkology paste is removable unless it is sealed so I can change up the designs on my surfaces whenever I want. I love this one so much, I sealed it and found a spot for it right away. For awhile, I went on a grey and pink … Read more

A Week of Projects – Linda’s Visit!

January 24, 2020

A week of projects arrived with Linda. What fun! She had placed an order for the Absolutely Fabulous and Chill Out transfers, along with a couple of surfaces before she came so they would arrive while she was here. We knew we were going to enjoy chalking together. We didn’t know just how much we … Read more

Mixed Drinks

I Have Mixed Drinks About Feelings

January 3, 2020

Mixed Drinks About Feelings is perfect for a bar, kitchen or rec room! Guaranteed to get a giggle. Those were my thoughts when I first saw this transfer. Too cute! I immediately had to start playing with the different elements. I pulled out a little stack of small hex boards I had and got to … Read more
