Easy craft and what giving up FB has caused me to do

If you have kids, or sweet nieces and nephews or nanny for a youngster, you should definitely try this because: 1)it's soooo easy and 2)it's quite fun!

All you need is:
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
A few drops of food coloring
And...
Voila, you have chalkboard paint!

Take an old paintbrush and go outside and enjoy the gorgeous weather all while decorating that driveway!

I watch a 3 year old girl and she loved not only painting with it but also making it!


I just had to share this because I couldn't get over how easy it was and besides, it's been too long since I've mentioned anything about crafting!

On a completely different note, no FB=cleaning and organizing! I turned my anxiety yesterday into cleaning and organizing the kitchen cabinets! The spice cabinet was the worst. This first picture shows what was all crammed inside (pretty much same order also!!) and the second is the after!






Notice all those spice jars in the top of the first picture? Those were filled with old spices I've never used!! Looks like I will have something for a craft some day! Also, that bag filled with trash was old outdated stuff that was crammed in there also!

It felt quite good to get the kitchen cabinets in order...it made me not even miss FB that much.

Wait, who am I kidding? I definitely still missed it!

Anyways, hope Lent is treating everyone well so far! And if you want an easy craft-go try that chalkboard paint!

As for me...I'm off to organize the master bedroom!

Spice cabinet and master bedroom done before the first Friday of lent? Looks like you'll have plenty of time to come organize my house next!!! (Just kidding - but only mostly ;))

Neat!! I couldn't give up FB entirely, so I limited my internet usage to one hour a day. I couldn't believe how much I got done yesterday!!!!

I cleaned today when I would've been on fb too! And great craft idea. We don't have a paved driveway or any sidewalks or else I'd be making it right now!

I don't want to clean or give up FB! Hehe.

I was interrupted in the middle of cleaning my spice cupboard, you reminded me to get that job finished.

I think I may use your cornstarch idea in the spring with my crazy class. :)

Nice rack. :) hee hee. I am off fb, too, and it is hard. That is how I keep up with people! I had to just text my neighbor to ask when her baby is due and to let me know when she has it because I'm off fb and have no idea what's going on.
