Finally, a Finished Project

I have so many projects I want to get done around the house that sometimes I get overwhelmed.
A lot of the projects require Hubby's help so that makes it even more difficult.

But, yay,I finally finished a little project that I could do all on my own.

My chalkboard wall...

I'm in love!
And look, I didn't even clean it up before I showed it to you.
{that's how you know I really like you}

The top has my favorite hoop from Ally. Go get one.

The other hoops are just doilies I found at an antique store.
I hung my prints from Jessi on simple clips.

{and yes, I still have to iron the doily on the top. who thinks that will actually ever happen?}

These are the sweet notes my babysitter leaves for me. Ok, not so sweet, but I still love her.
And I'm still hoping she will decide not to go to college and live with me instead.
Is that selfish?

I bought chalk pens. I have the world's worst penmanship but these pens and this wall make me not care. So
there.

Let's hear a big cheer for finished projects!

My hubs surprised me with a chalkboard wall for our anniversary last weekend! I've wanted one for so long & he did it while I was out of town! I never thought about hanging some hoops/prints! So cute! I also need to try those markers. My handwriting in chalk is terrible!

I hear ya on waiting for hubby's...I've had a hole in my kitchen wall for months now, along with some other things that need a "hubby touch" :)

Congrats on finishing! Seems like all our projects need me Hubsy too so when one comes along that you can handle yourself it is empowering :) I have a chalkboard wall too but it's not as cute as yours!
