Saw it. Pinned it. Did it.

Y'all...I was so excited about mine & Katie's very first (EVER) link up to host, I didn't sleep a wink last night! (Kidding. But I was pretty darn excited!!)

If you've recently gotten a lil inspiration from a website we like to refer to as "Pinterest", share it with us by linking up below! (& check in every Thursday to link up.) Even if it's an old project you did a while ago, link up that gem and let us know about it!!

Moving right along...

While Beau may think I've purchased stock in post-it notes, I, on the other hand, am all about "sweet nothings". You know...the little things...the things that mean the absolute most. Like love notes...in post-it form.

Post-it.
After post-it.
After post-it.

They're flippin' ALL over our house...on the front door, in his wallet, in his pockets, on the bathroom mirrors...yes. Everywhere.

However...it never fails...for some reason Beau can never "find" the post-its to write me back. :(
{Arms crossed. Hmmph}

Enter the pin that changed everything.
Yep. I figured if I provided the canvas, the painter would go to work.

So...off to Hob Lob I went.

And if you're anything like me...when it comes to baking or crafting, the fewer ingredients, the better!

Here's what you'll need:
 Easel, chalkboard spray paint, plastic charger or metal pan (the charger here was $1.99 from Hobby Lobby), a bow or something frilly (like a canvas flower)

First, you take the 'mallow.

Ok kidding.
(Sandlot. Get with me people.)

This is possibly the easiest craft ever. Actually, it doesn't deserve to be called a "craft" it's THAT simple but since it included a trip to the craft store and a hot glue gun,  it's gonna make the cut.

Basically, you spray paint the charger with the chalkboard paint. (*And not that I found this out the hard way or anything, but make sure you lay something down underneath the charger before you spray it.) Set it up on an easel and hot glue your bow or flower to the top of it, or wherever you'd like...get creative folks.

Voila.

Now grab a box of chalk and go to town!

Place it somewhere central so it can be seen or even in your kitchen to welcome guests to your home!
(My note on the left. Beau's on the right.)

Lets just say my plan worked like a charm and we'll never have to buy Post-its again!
Problem solved. BAM.

There you have it. Link up below!! It's your time to shine! :) I can't WAIT to see what everyone has up their sleeves!!

**We only ask that you credit the original source of your pin and that you include our button (below) back to our blogs somewhere on your post. To do this-just copy the text in the box below and paste it in your html for your post. Please, please, do this so we can follow along and other can join in on the fun, too!

Saw it. Pinned it. Did it.
