Flip-Flops Sign with Chalk Paste



Have you ever found something that you thought was so amazing that you just had to tell all your family and friends about it? You know - that great new pizza place that has the perfect pizza you've been looking for all your life, or that amazing mattress you just got and you are finally getting a great night's sleep, or maybe that cute pair of shoes you found that is ah-ma-zing.  We all have at least one something like that. Right? Well, I have found one of those things I want to share with y'all today.  



This is the most amazing, fun, and addictive craft product I have used in a long time and is at the top of my favorites list right next to paint.

As most of you all know I am in love with paint. It's my go-to craft product for almost every project - anything can be transformed with a bit of paint be it a thrift store find, upcycled product, trash recycle or changing a brand new item. It's my way of putting my "stamp" on a project.  But, I tell you I may soon be replacing it with Chalk Couture's Chalk Paste. This stuff is amazing and easy to use and fun and addictive and... I could go on forever. That's just how much I love it.

I love to make signs of all types and especially chalkboard signs.  But, I also like to put quotes and images on my thrift store finds, Dollar Store finds, pillows, all sorts of things.  However, it's not always an easy process - you have to make or find an image, trace or stencil it onto the project, then spend hours painting the image.  Sometimes this process can be quite tedious and takes hours or even days to do. But, I loved the finished product.  Then enters chalk paste - what a difference this has made in my world.
Instead of taking hours or days to do a project it takes me minutes to complete the most awesome perfect signs that look like a pro made them. 
Did I tell you how much I love this stuff?
 I mean where have you been all my life?!

Let me show you why I fell in love with this product.

First of all, Chalk Couture is a system of transfers, chalk pastes and inks that allow you to create masterpieces for your home, as gifts, or to sell in your shops in minutes.  In the above picture, I am placing the "Live Life in Flip Flops" transfer on a cute little chalkboard I found at the Target Dollar Spot.

Then I just applied some white chalk paste with a squeegee to the words "Live Life in".

To add interest I then applied some aquamarine paste to the words "flip flops"

I immediately removed the transfer and 
                WALLAH... 
check out how perfect the words turned out and how cute it is already.

But, I wasn't finished yet.  I decided to add a few flip-flop transfers to the board for some cute embellishments.

And, 10 minutes from the start I had this completed and very cute summer board to display.  This would have taken me at least a full afternoon to complete with paint. And, the best part is when summer is over I can easily reuse this board by cleaning it with a bit of water and a paper towel. It will be a clean new slate and ready for a new quote.  So quick, so easy, so cute and so addictive.

Below I am sharing a video with you to show you just how quick and easy this chalk paste is to use.

Now you can see why I have fallen in love with this new product.  I know I will definitely be using it for the majority of my projects now as it can be used on most any surface.  I will continue to be a paint fanatic but it's going to have to move aside and make room for this awesome chalk paste.  

And, for those "crafties" like me, Chalk Couture has 31 colors of chalk paste to choose from and so many different fun transfers in 5 different sizes - many with multiple images on each individual transfer.  They also have 20 colors of ink that can be used on glass, fabric, mirror - anything that can be heat set to make a permanent image.  Then there are all their amazing surfaces to use but, you are not limited to them alone - use things around your house, thrift store finds, Dollar store finds - whatever your heart desires - that's the beauty of it - you are not limited to one thing. That's why I love it so much - that and the fact that it's so easy.
You can check out all their amazing products at Chalk Couture shop

Update Your Flower Pots With Paint

Living in the South we spend a lot of time in our outdoor spaces.  I like to have these spaces look inviting and cozy.  I do this with paint, fabrics, and plants. One of the easiest ways I have found to refresh our outdoor spaces is to update and upcycle your old flower pots.  I love to refresh ours with paint and do so almost every year.  Today I thought I would share with you some of the makeovers I have done as well as some of my blogger friends.

Patriotic Deco Mesh Wreath

Summer is here and school will be ending this week.  That means lots of busy days with activities and family fun and celebrations.  One of the events we look forward to each summer is 4th of July.  Our family just loves to get together grill, swim and sit out under the stars to watch the fireworks.  It's such a fun time for each of us.  So, today I thought I would share one of the Patriotic 4th of July wreaths I just made.
