A Runner of Thanks

Update: Since I have several questions concerning the chalkcloth, I should have told you to start that I purchased this through Etsy, specifically through Modern June.  She has a lot of great products.

I know, I know, so much Thanksgiving?  I guess I feel like I need to get it out of system and then start planning for Christmas!

I bought this runner months ago, it is simply a piece of chalkboard fabric cut in a unique shape.  I have used in for some time because I like the simplicity of them.  While I was putting together all of my Thanksgiving stuff, I realized it would make a great place to write what we are thankful for.  This is stuff me and my sister wrote, but I am going to continue to ask people to fill it out and it should be really full by Thanksgiving!  Here it is…

I've never seen chalkboard fabric before either, and I love this idea! I like the way you scalloped the edges too for that extra touch of detail.

What a fun idea! I love it. This would be do-able with fabric and a fabric pen as well, I think. But, I LOVE chalkboard application so this is definitely my favorite!

Ann Tatum said...

I have been checking in on your blog for a while & love all your ideas. I'm celebrating the 30 Days of Thanksgiving on my blog & wondered if you would mind if I shared some of your photos & a link back to your blog? I'd like to share the chalkcloth runner & your chalkboard.
