fun with our thought bubble chalkboard

Yes, that is a true story. They really were taking turns sticking their fingers in the box fan to stop it.

I have wanted one of these since I first saw them. Oh the ideas swirling around in my head for ways to use it. I would like to predict that these will be the HOT item for Christmas cards this year. If you are a photographer you NEED one of these for your family sessions, weddings, newborns session…you just NEED one. If you aren’t a photographer, well you need one too. I think this would be fun gift for preteen and teen girls too! My friend Rachel is the original genius behind them and I was GIDDY when mine arrived in the mail. I am sure you’ve seen them all over online, theKnot magazine and Bust magazine. Sweet Rachel is giving one away on my blog today. Happy dance.

  • Cath - “I’m thinking in something very clever to say….”

  • shannan - I loved this post so much that not only did I put it on my own blog (hope that is okay) but I emailed it to a bunch of friends. Love it and I would love this chalkboard!

  • Tricia - Mine would say Merry Christmas, but not with a picture of me, but my Boston Terrier. I’d use it as my Christmas card.

  • ae - I’d put it by our sink FULL of dirty dishes and write “Maybe someone should wash us?”

    … maybe that’d provide the necessary motivation?

  • Kelly - aaaaaah! what a cool giveaway. first i would write “sorry” and then when that was accepted (which it already has been verbally but seeing it in chalk might not hurt) then I would write “happy fall” and after Oct. 1st, “boo”. Kelly

  • Amber - Is it Friday yet?

  • Julia Leinen - How hilarious! love this! If I had one of these right now, I would dress up my kiddos in their halloween costumes and write on it, “will work for candy”

  • heather - Mine would have to read – ‘who are these children and why are they calling me Mom?”
    That thought bubble has to be the cutest thing ever!

  • The Other Laura - I need a nap!

  • Jessica - I love this so much! Classic…
