Kali’s Christmas Card
By • Filed In: Christmas, Projects, Winter

Michelle Knox, from I Do Invitations by Michelle, is aaaaamazing for anyone looking for adorable invitations, stationary, any paper goods.  She did just about everything for my wedding… save the dates, invites, programs, menu, rehearsal dinner invite and menu, even signs for my bathroom baskets.  Here is some work she did for my wedding:


Michelle so fun and easy to work with.  Everything is done over the computer.  I send Michelle an email, tell her what I’m looking for, and in one day or less (often times that same night!), I have a lovely sample waiting for me in my inbox.

So when it came time to thinking of what to do for our Christmas card, Michelle was the first thing that came to mind.  Check out what she came up with…

After spending hours on Pinterest looking at photography (just check out my photography board and you’ll see), I felt the need to do something creative.  So I bought wood plaques from Hobby Lobby (both for under $8) and spray painted them with chalkboard paint.

I first used the Krylon spray paint and after 4 coats, I still wasn’t satisfied.  I wrote on it and when I went to erase, it wouldn’t all come off (as you can tell from the background in the other spray paint picture).  So I then bought the Rust-Oleum from Home Depot.  It was much better!  The fun thing is I can reuse the boards for just about anything since it’s erasable.

I think chocolate and cheese should be their own food group. Or, at least I treat them as if they are. To say I like wine is an understatement. I hope to one day call myself a professional photographer, but in the meantime, I'll just pretend I am. I'm a second grade teacher by day but a potty mouth by night.
