Happy New Year 2016

As you may have seen in this post we have a huge chalkboard in our living room. We just can’t have enough chalkboards at home, the girls love to doodle and me too, of course. So we thought we could make something pretty for the holidays and wish you all a Happy New Year at the same time, so we did this.


I’m not very talented about free writing or drawing, so I printed a cute graphic I found online. Then I grabbed a white chalk and rubbed the back of the sheet, placed it on the blackboard and outlined the letters, that easy!

Miss A drew the reindeer and most of the snowflakes while Miss S was singing happily as always…


Wishing you a Happy New Year 2016!!

    Happy New Year Pili, and happy New Year to your little elves! It has been an honor for me to have met you this past year and to call you friend! I also was able to redo my chalkboard. It’s so much fun to change it up as the year moves along!

    Pili, what a fantastic idea the chalkboard is and I loved seeing (and hearing) your daughters enjoy it so. I wish for you and your family a wonderful 2016!

      Thank you so much, Lynn. They used to have a little chalkboard from Ikea and they argued a lot because of it… With this big one there is not a single problem!

      Have a wonderful 2016 you too!!

      Thank you so much Megin! I saw that tip somewhere I can’t remember but it was floating around until I decided to try. It’s so good for us who are not gifted at drawing!

    Woah! That works? Amazing! What a great idea! What you can do on your chalkboard now is limitless! How cool! It looks so incredible!

    • Pili says:

      It works, Gigi!! But I found it works with white chalk the best! I’m thrilled to try new designs!!
