Using patterns as backgrounds in DIY projects is extremely popular right now. Chalk Couture is no exception and has lots to choose from.
I love all these patterns and what you can do with them. You can get yours here but or check out my bundles and customers specials on my facebook customer VIP group.
Just a few examples using patterned transfers. The possibilities are endless!!!

Is anyone else out there with me trying to give up soda? I've tried this many times before and seem to always come back. Diet Dr. Pepper is my addiction. I'm really wanting one right now so I started looking for inspiration to help me stay strong and I found this. I don't know what some of this is but the things in the red circle are definitely me. Going to drink more water!!!!
Whew, I've been so busy moving into the new studio that I haven't done any chalking. With the Southern Women's show coming up this weekend, I had to get some samples done.

So excited to share with you that New Bern will now have a new option for "social crafting events." Jennifer Waddell and I have partnered in opening this exciting new studio, located in a very familiar location to me, 2500 Trent Rd, Suite 20. For those of you following my business for awhile, will remember I was once in Suite 18, lol! I am however giving up most furniture painting and concentrating on providing fun, creative, social crafting events. Stay tuned for more information on opening date and event information.
I met Linsey and her daughter at the Southern Women's Show this past weekend and they loved the products and how easy it was to use. So we found some flower transfers that would work perfectly with an upcoming project for the girl scout troop and below is a picture of some of the girls and their projects. She said they loved Chalk Couture! If you would like to add Chalk Couture to your group or event, give me a call or email. (252) 288-1107 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Had so much fun at the Southern Women's Show in Richmond, VA. So many nice people. Had a great show with lots of sales and new designers joining the Chalk Couture family. I demo'd like crazy for 3 days. Here are my boards from each day, and I just washed it off and started over because you can do that with CHALK COUTURE!!!!
I don't know about you, but I'm not a fan of possums. BUT, I'm a huge fan of possum belly cabinets. If you have heard of Hoosier cabinets (I have one of those to), possum bellies came before them, around 1900-1930. Some people called them bakers tables. The bottom drawers are rounded for baking supplies like flour and sugar and were also lined with tin to keep critters out. So, here is my refinished cabinet that I absolutely love. It will serve as great storage in my craft studio.
So we are in Dallas for the American Athletic Conference Swimming & Diving Championship where my son Matthew will be competing in his final diving events for ECU 🙂 😞, yes feelings of excitement and sadness. I have been watching him dive for 10 years!
So the real purpose of this post is to tell you where Dave and I are going today since Matt has the day off from competition. We are in Texas!!! So.... yes we are driving to Waco to visit everything I can of Magnolia Homes! Silos here we come :) :) I’m so excited and no Dave is not. In exchange I must visit the PGA Superstore with him.
Here’s a little tip and one of my favorites in creating designs. I love texture and dimension so I add ribbon and floral elements whenever I can. Off-setting your design helps to keep it balanced. Have a wonderful Saturday!
