I have a new blackboard to play with in the studio.
I used a leftover floor tile we had from the new tv room & painted it
with homemade chalkboard paint: 1 cup of black (or color of your choice) paint
plus 2 tablespoons of un-sanded tile grout. Recipe from here.

Hi Gennine.

I just wanted to let you know that I've been following your blog for a while now and it really lifts my heart to see your gorgeous illustrations and inspiring photos every day.

That's why when I was passed on this 'Liebster Blog' award (if you get one, you pass on the love to five more blogs), I linked up to your Art Blog. I just thought I should let you know you're the cream of the crop!


P.S. The post I'm talking about is right here:

Hi Geninne, thanks for the december desktop! It makes me happy. I really like seeing your interior pictures. For some strange reason I really like to see neat organised spaces :)
