Totally worth $5, don't you think?

    1. Yep..it's up to you to make something positive
      even if you're doled up something unimaginative.

      though I have one on a shelf.

  5. Congrats Susie! And that chalkboard is adorable. Great idea. I've thought about adding something to my pantry door, just not sure what, yet. I hang my apron on a nail on the inside of the pantry door, though. Lol!

    1. That's a good idea. I've hung one on the outside of the door before. The inside of my door has those rubber coated wire racks attached to it for spices, etc. My pantry is pretty small so I have to use all the space! haha.

  7. What fun! It fits perfectly! I remember having a chalkboard in my basement during elementary school. I would spend hours and hours writing on it just to practice and perfect my penmanship!

    1. They are fun! Whoever thought to bring them back as a decorative piece
      was a genius!

    2. I'm sure you know that there is blackboard paint that you can purchase. I have an old frame that I really like and I was thinking of transforming it into a blackboard. One of many projects that I mull over but don't seem to get around to!

  15. Love this quote. I think I'll use it on my chalkboard, which hangs on a bottom side cupboard...maybe I'll move it front and center to the basement door...if only I could draw pictures though.

    1. Oh, you can draw a whisk! And the great thing about chalk is that it erases for a do-over!
