Chalk Talk

Better After reader Jen reports that “I picked up this mirror at Goodwill for $2.50. It screamed “Make me into a chalkboard!”

Hmm. Usually the stuff I find at Goodwill screams “Put me down! I have scabies!” But that’s because my Goodwill is kind of nasty and lame.

Good things she listened, because how cute is her chalkboard? She used her Cricut to make the grid. I see she is going somewhere on the 24th and 25th called “Funktion Junktion,” and I’m pretty sure whatever that is, I need to go too.
