Last year we painted our dining room table(s) with chalkboard paint – I wish I had kept a record of all the fun stuff that has been sketched and written on them over the year. I have started now. For Thanksgiving (and probably the rest of the season) I found the perfect quote “To be happy at home is the ultimate result of all ambition” (Samuel Johnson) and sketched it out using chalk and chalkboard pens. It’s not perfect but I’m OK with that, it’s my first attempt at something like this and it can only get better from here. I enjoyed every moment. Sometimes I forget to take the time to just create, not for a company, not for a reason, just because. Home is the perfect place to do that.
