I caught the Chalkboard bug!

My new favorite artistic outlet is Chalkboard Art! I found this chalkboard at my favorite store HomeGoods and I have had so much fun designing new art every couple weeks. 
I first sketch out my ideas on graph paper then I have a good idea of what goes where and my design preference. It just works out better for me that way.
Here is my Fourth of July Chalkboard:
The great thing is nothing is permanent and you can wipe off it if you make a mistake.

I hosted our families birthday celebration for June and I wanted to incorporate everyones name for their special day. I love the cake!! I also discovered how important it is to SHADE. You can download Chalkboard Fonts and design your chalk art on Word first. I always add a shadow to my words so I get that extra pop, and then when you are doing your art work you have a good reference.
The pom-poms are homemade. I found this amazing little Pom-pom maker that is just so fun and fast to make. I used a multicolored yarn and I love how festive it turned out.
I hope you have as much fun as I did.
Go create something!

It's me, Brooke Marie!

Hi, I'm Brooke Marie. I'm wife to Josh, mom to Sophia and Colton and I work full time in government service. I love being a mom and creating special memories for my kiddos. I take pictures as often as I can or until my kids cry for me to stop.. My passions (besides my family) are cooking, crafting, sewing, reading, shopping, and browsing Pinterest any chance I can get. Im starting this blog to keep up with friends and family and share my creative endeavors with you! I'm not a professional writer, and my grammar may not always be perfect but who cares...haha.. I hope to inspire my little ones and hopefully you too. I hope you enjoy this journey with me..
