Chalkboard: People Who Love To Eat

Sunday, January 4, 2015
Happy New Year!

I've successfully completed the first 6 months of intern year in my pediatric residency in Colorado. It's been quite a journey, but I've learned a ton and am truly enjoying life as a doctor!


That being said, I haven't had as much time to craft or do photography as I would like... and even less time to blog about these creative outlets. I figure I can still share a bit, even if it's not as timely as I would like.

Back in Albany, I painted a piece of poster board with chalkboard paint. It basically sat untouched in our apartment on the East Coast, but here in Denver we have space above our kitchen cabinets perfect for a chalkboard display.
  


I found this great quote by none other than Julia Child. Using Handy George font, I created a Word document, printed it. cut out the words, and covered the backs of the paper with chalk. I placed the words on the chalkboard background, and used a chopstick to rub over the letters as a means of transferring the chalk to the background. Then I removed the paper and touched up the chalk writing.


It's a pretty simple project, but I do love seeing the sign in the kitchen as we prepare meals!
