Happy Mother's Day

My mother looks forward to my crafty gifts on Mother’s Day.  This year I altered a chalkboard for her kitchen.  Mama Minnie is old school and believes in cooking a Soul Food Sunday dinner at her home regardless of Mother’s Day or any special holiday.  I picked up this chalkboard from Michael’s and added décor to compliment her kitchen. My mother is a decorator so I had to make it pretty and add some lace at the top.

Here’s a close up of the bottom. The items are all from my stash.  Chef Phoebe digital image by Robert Jackson was added. She is whipping up the batter for some hot water cornbread!  Although my mother does not wear that attire, I thought she was too adorable and added the perfect sentiment from Basic Grey.

Here’s a close up of the top.  Finally used the Jolee silverware and tied it to some twine to hang.  Then I found the stickers to add another perfect sentiment for the top.  She can add her menu to the front or back.  

Well it’s time to wrap it in a box for delivery.  Did you make your mother something crafty?


  1. This is lovely! I haven't made my mom anything crafty, yet, for this Mother's Day. She's just starting to appreciate the hand-made cards I give her. LOL.

  2. I love how this turned out; not only beautiful - but functional. Thanks for sharing.
