Before you grammar Nazis (you know who you are!) get all up-in-arms about my title... I know. It just had to flow that way.
So, CASE = copy and share everything. You might need to know that for this post.
About a month ago, I was at a local bed, bath and um, faraway place. I saw these chalk boards for counting down the days until Christmas. I liked them so much that I almost bought one. Then I looked at the price at it was $14.99. Um, no. That could be stamp money! So, then I took a picture of them. And said, I'll have to make one myself. How many times have I said that? Well, this time I did!
I prefer the red one for my kids!
First, I had to acquire a chalkboard. Michael's $2.99 (w/o coupon). I already had red paint and foam brushes and a little 5 year-old helper that painted it for me! (FOR FREE!) :) Next, came the stamping part. The chalkboard I found has a much narrower frame so I couldn't use too many images... they just wouldn't fit. I like the way it turned out and more importantly, my son is ready to begin the countdown! It's so fun this year, with all that he is learning, math, reading, etc... WOHOO!
So, what do you think? Do you think we CASED it alright? It certainly is MUCH less expensive (nicer way of saying CHEAPER!).
Leave me a comment here and I'll read it to my son. He's wondering how everyone likes it! :)
ETA: He painted. I stamped (and wrote).
