Let's Talk Chalk is a mother-daughter Etsy shop selling vinyl chalkboard labels in all sorts of shapes, from the traditional to the playful. They are one of my lovely blog sponsors and recently sent me an assortment of their labels to try out and review. Thank goodness, too, because I needed some labelling action in the art studio.
At least that's what I thought they were...
I thought, "Wow, chalkboard earrings. What an interesting idea!" and, "I bet those would make a great conversation starter at a party!" So I used their handy dandy write on/wipe off chalkbaord marker and wrote "Hi!" on one earring and "My name is Jean" on the other and tried them on.
What do you think? Pretty neat, huh?
Leave it to them to make chalkboard jewelry.
And then as I was writing this post, I took another look at their shop to link to the unique earrings, and guess what I found out? They're not earrings! They are a set of chalkboard wine glass charms! (Let's Talk Chalk sells a lot of wedding and event chalk labels.)
Okay, feeling a little silly, I took the wine charms off my ears (but you know, they really did make pretty cool earrings!) and moved on to the studio with the rest of the labels...
I added chalkboard labels to all the Ikea bins that hold our paints.
A few different chalkboard labels went on the jars of sequins and beads.
And there we go. A nicely organized studio (and a big thanks to my friend Darlene for helping to clean and organize it!). The green chest is full of who-knows-what though. I think it's time to order some fun labels so we can tell exactly what's in each drawer. Maybe some more little birds (my favorite!) or possible these small labels.
But wait! One last thing... We're heading to the kitchen now...
I used the large chalkboard wall decal on the inside of a cupboard door as a place to write down grocery list items as we think of them or run out. That pucker on the side is because there's some hardware there. I could have moved the decal (they all are easily repositionable), but decided this was the most convenient place for it.
Do you need some chalkboard labels to help you get organized?
