This is an antique school slate I use for our menu plan each week. Sometimes I draw a flower or some simple design along with the meal plan. I found a cool website (google: chalkboard art) with lots of ideas for quotes using interesting lettering techniques. Obviously, I need lots of work on the lettering, but this attempt was fun. Using chalk markers make it a lot easier for those of us (me) without the patience to use a piece of chalk. Can you imagine the children who used this slate instead of paper and pencil to learn their ABC's and arithmetic?
Our artist daughter contributed this. I left the sketch part up for quite a few weeks, not wanting to erase the design.
Laughter - be sure you leave some behind.
