Dear Coffee, I Love You. That is All.

We had a lovely little snow storm this week in the MidWest. I think 8-9 inches at last count.
The kids had 3 days off school and I guess people decided they didn't want to go into labor, 'cause I got to stay home from work for 2 days. We've had fun.

It also gave me the extra time to update the chalkboard. 

My girls and I are big coffee/cappuccino fans, so this one is extremely appropriate.
And it makes us smile.

My son photo-bombing my pics also makes me grin. 
Double BONUS!!

Just in case any of you are font crazy like me and were wondering...  The lovely font in the middle {the I Love You text} is Bombshell Pro. The Dear Coffee text is done in Moon Flower, which is a free font.

I typed this up and cut it out of card stock with my Silhouette. Then used the card stock like a stencil by taping it to the chalkboard and filling it in with chalk. I used the same technique to make the CREATE wall I showed you guys in my craft room reveal last week. I'll share the exact details on that soon.

Okey dokey, me and my coffee loving family wish you all a warm and happy weekend!

Update: This chalkboard has now been made into a counter-top sign, click the link to check it out!

These are some of the fun blogs I link up to on a regular basis.
Do yourself a favor and check them out... you won't be disappointed!

  16. Jaennine, its Christine again....I have a question about those letters you have on top of the frame. Did you paint them or did you happen to buy them like this? xoxoxo Chrsitine from Little Brags

    1. I painted them! They were unfinished wood and paper mâché when I bought them. :)


Thanks so much for your comments. I read, and very much appreciate, every one of them!
