Chalk Paint Fun

I recently discovered another crafty website called Skip to my Lou, where I stumbled upon this cool recipe for Chalk Paint. It looked like fun, but there haven't been many sub-100 degree days this summer to try it out. We got lucky this afternoon, and had a blast.

Supposedly it's washable, but at the rate this drought is going, our artwork might become a permanent feature on the back porch.

even purplemouth makes me smile!

...yes, purplemouth. Gentian Violet to be precise. The other stuff (the stuff that doesn't stain everything in sight) didn't help Amelia's thrush, so we're trying the colorful route.

Wanna see?

If you google gentian violet, you'll appreciate that mommy actually did a pretty clean job!

clean diapers make me smile, too!
