Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Start with a box of clear glass or plastic balls…found at craft stores or even Walmart:)

Next, add several coats of Chalkboard paint. (Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Lowes, Home Depot)

I used an inexpensive sponge brush and applied 3 coats, allowing each to dry for about 15 minutes.

Once the last coat was dry, I used one of my VERY FAVORITE pens to mimic chalk…

Signo Uni-ball pen in White.

You can find them at Jet Pens.

I really love hand made ornaments.  They become such keepsakes.  They help me remember the details and memories made that surround each ornament each year they were created.  My most cherished ornaments are the ones my kids have made  through the years and they are the ones we giggle and laugh about each time we trim our tree.

When I give an ornament to someone I love, my hope is that every year, as they trim their tree,

they will remember they are cherished:)
