A Runner of Thanks

Update: Since I have several questions concerning the chalkcloth, I should have told you to start that I purchased this through Etsy, specifically through Modern June.  She has a lot of great products.

I know, I know, so much Thanksgiving?  I guess I feel like I need to get it out of system and then start planning for Christmas!

I bought this runner months ago, it is simply a piece of chalkboard fabric cut in a unique shape.  I have used in for some time because I like the simplicity of them.  While I was putting together all of my Thanksgiving stuff, I realized it would make a great place to write what we are thankful for.  This is stuff me and my sister wrote, but I am going to continue to ask people to fill it out and it should be really full by Thanksgiving!  Here it is…

  13. What a fun idea! I love it. This would be do-able with fabric and a fabric pen as well, I think. But, I LOVE chalkboard application so this is definitely my favorite!

    I have been checking in on your blog for a while & love all your ideas. I'm celebrating the 30 Days of Thanksgiving on my blog & wondered if you would mind if I shared some of your photos & a link back to your blog? I'd like to share the chalkcloth runner & your chalkboard.

    Ok ok now I'M the newest follower…..lol I love this idea too! and will be using it for our thanksgiving!!! can you share what you used to write on it with???

    a few years back I used a light cream table cloth…..used colored markers, had everyone trace their hands and decorate them to match their personalities and write on the fingers the things they were greatful for! it turned out wonderful!! I will try to find it in storage and blog it!!!!
