I'm completely smitten with the wooden utensil trend that has taken over the party styling world.
What's not to love about an item that is eco-friendly...
completely versatile for just about every occasion...
and absolutely screams "get crafty and personalize me!"
I've been itching to do something creative with them, other than using Chalkboard Paint for creating the "plant marker" dessert spoons I created for the party I styled for Martha Stewart, and today I have a crazy simple painting idea to share with you. Something so simple you'll wonder why I even bothered to create a brief tutorial about it. *wink*
For those of you who are curious...
here's a quick visual of the Chalkboard Paint wood spoons I mentioned earlier...
See!! The creative possibilities with wooden utensils are endless.
And the process doesn't have to ridiculously complicated - a little bit of detail goes a long way!!
Now...here's the super exciting part of today's post!!
I'll be sharing a really, really cute idea on The TomKat Studio you won't want to miss.
You'll see what I ended up using the Rainbow Dot Wood Spoons for...
I think you're going to love how it all ties together!!
Stay tuned for the announcement for when the a post goes live!!
KEEPiNG iT REAL
For those of you wondering about my anticipated paint project over the weekend...
it didn't happen.
My little Ella Scarlet needed my full love and attention.
With no real signs of improvement after a rough weekend, I took her to the doctor yesterday.
Results came back as having 2 small areas of "beginning stages" of pneumonia on her left lung
and an ear infection in her left ear. Doctor says "walking pneumonia is going around in our area?
I'm starting my own round of antibiotics tomorrow since I've still got a cough that just won't go away.
And...I whipped up a batch of homemade cough syrup that seems to be working already - inspired by a friend. I'll be posting more on that later!
