A Lil' Birdie told me


I got this lil' birdie thing, which I think is a picture holder at Hobby Lobby in the 66 % off section and it was so cute and cheap I had to get it. 


I knew I wanted to put this in my kitchen and so I remembered I still had some of my chalkboard paint left over from my "Fench Wall."   I grabbed a recipe card which you can see behind the paintbrush and btw I had no idea if this was going to work or not! 



And of Course I had a Krispy Kreme doughnut box to use for this!  It took 3 coats and a hairdryer to get it done but this is the result....



And then I realized you can see the back of this too.  So I found some scrapbook paper and cut it to size for the back! 



  Gotta love HL!


"cheap, cheap" said the birdie!

Oh my gosh--how darling!!! I am at Hobby Lobby so much, I was thinking I could get a sleeping bag and just keep it in the scrapbooking aisle! It is great to see the treasure that you created! Precious!!
