It’s Christmas Eve. Over the past few weeks, my guess is that we have all spent time searching for the perfect gifts for those we love, making grocery lists then making sure we buy everything we need on those lists, and making certain that everything is just right before Christmas guests arrive.
I have never really enjoyed cleaning the house. I’ve never really enjoyed cooking either. Although, of course, I do.
What I DO enjoy is decorating the house and being creative. Here is a very small project I finished yesterday.
I bought this old metal suitcase at a flea market (for $1.00) and some chalkboard paint at Michael’s Craft store. I used masking tape to make a straight edge and isolate the center of the suitcase. (Be sure to read the spray paint can for instructions on “conditioning” the new chalkboard.) That’s it! The suitcase is ready to use as a welcome ‘sign.” When our guests arrive, I will put a checkmark in the box by their name, or let them do it!
Super simple and very fun!
