Looking toward the light


Don't look down
Don't look up
Look straight ahead...


Took the day yesterday to take a deep breath and bask in God's Glory


Is that the sun I see behind the clouds?

Happy Mosaic Monday!

Chalkboard Minis!

We have a new product at Chalk it up! The chalkboard mini!



Actually it is 2"x3.5" the size of a business card.


I can think of so many uses for these minis
Wedding seating cards
table place setting cards for a dinner party
birthday favors
teaching aides
labels for organizing
name tags for a social event or meeting

Can you think of other ways to use mini chalkboards?
I'd love to hear your ideas

New Custom Website

Hello World!

Not just another wordpress website! This is my new website and I'm very excited to introduce it to you here. Art by Instinct!

This website is a culmination of the work that I have been doing for the past several years; teaching, painting, murals, chalkboards, digital media. The cherry on the sundae or icing on the cake is the custom website that I created to house all of this work.

For the past year and a half I have been working toward a certificate in Digital/Interactive Media Design Technical.

I have taken classes in bitmap graphics, vector graphics, 3-D modeling and animation, digital video, digital imaging and interactive design. I have two more weeks left of my interactive design class and I will earn my certificate. And if I get an "A" in this class I will have a 4.0! (Ok enough tooting my own horn-that was fun:))

I still have some tweaking to do with my new site and I'm not sure if it will take over as my main site yet. But I will keep everyone updated as it evolves and gets the finishing touches.

So where do I go from here? Illustration, web design, custom banners... It's time to weigh my options and see how to put my new skill to work.

Stay tuned...

They stick together...


Through thick and thin...


And give each other space when they need it.

Luc and Bam and the kids are becoming fast friends!

It's fun to watch their friendship grow!:)

There are times when you need to back away from the computer...just back away! When you are not in the best state of mind...hands off the keys. Thus the explanation for the revision. I have always kept my blog a positive place. After all how can you follow along and have fun if it's not?!

I've only kept the parts worth keeping. I've decided everything is going to be just fine!:)

If you'd like to buy a chalkboard here's the shop

If you'd like to buy a painting here's the shop

Again, if you'd like to order a chalkboard or painting we would happily fill your order.

I wish you health and happiness.

Don't worry bout a thing!

I need my own SHedaisy group!

God Bless

And Chalk it Up!

I feel much better now!:)

Keep smiling:):):)

And a little something for Mosaic Monday


Some things I've collected on my vision boards over at LOVE Pinterest!

Starting with a clean plate!


This is a our newest chalkboard in the shop. Silver Chalkboard Plate!
A great way to display what's for dinner tonight or your soup of the day! Or to jot down your calorie count for the day! (or maybe not)

The chef is between jobs at the moment but we're hoping he will find something quickly.

In the meantime, onward with the chalkboard business and a few other business ventures we've put on the back burner, due to a lack of time. The irony, when you don't have the time you have the money but when you have the time you don't have the money.

We hope to be adding speech bubble chalkboards to the shop soon and various other shapes.

Rustic Chalkboard


This is the newest chalkboard at Chalk it up!
It would look great in a rustic style home or a mountain cabin!

The frame measures 14"x14"


I hope you are having a relaxing summer. Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
