Of course there are the standard issue plastic woven Easter baskets, but this year I’m looking for something just a little more original! I happened upon Kelly’s chalkboard Easter baskets at Running With Glitter, and I was impressed. As Kelly says, “these can be used long after Easter!” You see, one side is decoupaged (with our favorite decoupage medium Mod Podge!) and the side you see above uses FolkArt Chalkboard paint. See Kelly’s tutorial and how she plans to use them all year right here.
Did you know that January is National Organization Month? It’s funny that many of us crafters have “issues” in this arena . . . but I find it’s hard to manage such a large stash! I thought this idea from Cathie and Steve was cute, and I can use it to organize my inspiration on the wall. I can also write myself notes about organizer better. You should know that you can write on that pink surface, because it’s FolkArt Chalkboard Paint. Fun, huh? See the entire project here.
