Gobble 'Til Ya Wobble Chalkboard Signs
It's almost turkey time!
Every year, I host Thanksgiving here at my house. Even though I am only cooking for 5 people, I make enough food for at least twice that so the saying "Gobble 'Til Ya Wobble" takes on real meaning this time of year!
I used the Deflecto wet-erase easels and chalk markers to make these fun Thanksgiving-themed easels showing my menu and my motto for the day.
I dressed up the first with some pretty ribbon from Webster's Pages and a cornucopia sticker that I mounted on chipboard.
On the second, I attached a little paper-pieced turkey on an embossed background and then put the whole thing on the chalkboard.
These easels are so cool -- the wooden legs are a beautiful wood and the chalkboard surface is a black plastic-like material that you can clean off with just water (which is great if you don't like your handwriting and you have to erase it a hundred times to make it look right... not that I would know anything about that). Those people at Deflecto are geniuses, I tell you!
I hope all of you have a fantastic Thanksgiving!
