    Wow! What great talent and all is very inspirational! I can’t even pick a favorite…I have lots of scrap fabric, scrap paper for straws, lots of ribbon for a cute windsock…you name it! All of these look so fun to create. New follower via bloglovin!

    Thanks so much Taryn for stopping by! What I loved about the chalkboard paint backsplash is that it is so inexpensive to do. Everyone that has seen it loves it!
    I’m loven the windsock!
