Here it is, folks.
The moment we’ve waited for…
School has officially begun!
Now, we gave you a little preview of the drawing of our chalkboard (school days begin ’13 … a little early!). As promised, here are our first day pix…
With the clear omission of teacher gifts … because they didn’t actually get done on time, so they’ll be going to school with The Stinkerelly tomorrow. Eh. I’m not super human.
How cute is that Chick-fil-A kids’ meal cow watch?!?! Never leaves home without it. LOL!
He was so proud of himself for having written his own name. 🙂
Stinkerbell couldn’t let photos happen without her involvement…Awesome chalkboard, right?! It’s double-sided, so each kid has his/her own side on our “doodle days”. Super easy and super inexpensive to build. You want a how-to don’t you?
Also, here’s a .png of the drawing we did on the chalkboard. Just right click it and save. 🙂
We’ve left the name and date off so you and your munchie can fill it in yourselves. If you want us to design one for you, we’re happy to do it! Just shoot us a comment and we’ll get in touch. 🙂
Now… how we transferred the design onto our chalkboard:
First, please note that this was designed in 5×7 format; easily transposed to 8.5×11.
We printed the design onto transparency film and traced it. Our chalkboard is longer than this format, so we spaced it more evenly as we went. You can very easily just print this design onto cute paper and photograph that too! 🙂
Happy first day of school!!!
