My roommate has had these food serving slates, and haven’t used them in a couple years. So, I asked for them as chalkboard reminders. I ended up getting some chalk, and started on my journey of things to pick up around the house, with the reminders in a couple places.
I looked for different kind of slates this week online, and found some fun coasters. I was at Walmart for chalk, when I found a two pack of coasters. I was super excited. Regular chalk doesn’t work on slates, but the liquid pens look so good on them.
Going to Hobby Lobby is one of my favorite pleasures in life. I found some blackboard clothes pins on clearance for .49, and picked out 2 packs of 4. Along the way of finding my roommate, I found some really pretty pastel liquid chalk pens. They stand out in the room, so it really helps to see something with a bright color contrast.
The flower vase is placed on my living room coffee table, so it is always starring me down, when I look at the time, or admire the bouquet.

A clothes pin blackboard on a laundry hamper, telling me to wash clothes and bed stuff.
I tend to forget to pick up my mess, since I eat, when I’m doing something important most of the time. So, I made sure there was a clear message behind the spices on a coaster.
I hope this was a good post, leave a comment what you think of it.
I realized, I should just think about what topic I want to write about on the weekend, instead of worrying it throughout a 5 day period. I like to post things that are relevant to my life at the moment. Creativity is always relevant, so it isn’t too hard for me to come up with something different. It was fun to think about, and show the ways I’ve been using my slate reminders around the house.
