Hello my friends!

I love doing this blog because I LOVE being in constant contact with our customers! When people ask what I do for the company, I tell them my technical job title but sometimes I just want to say "Customer Service"! And being a Customer Service Specialist is definitely part of my job! I love hearing from you on Facebook & through email and answering your questions and seeing your creations! 

I am still getting lots of requests wondering what you can do with your new Chalkboard Stacks! So I knew a mega inspiration post was needed :) I took all of these photos from Pinterest and if you search for "Chalkboard" and "Chalk" you will find these and even more!

Hopefully this will spark your creativity!

  22. I saw a really cute idea and now I can't remember where it was, but it was for making wine glass markers. You cut the paper in 2" circles and attach to little metal rings. Perfect! I love the lunchbox idea, and the wall calendar with different colors. I would love something like that.

  40. Great projects, Erin! I already have this stack, and have been playing around with it a bit. I want to make a layout with it, but find I have to be a little artistic/creative with it, which is not my style. I did find some other chalk markers in AC Moore that write really well on the chalk paper....so I am really going to try to do something with it for sure!
