So I have a wall with chalkboard paint. So I need to have chalks to write, no?
So I have bought a box of white chalk and some colorful chalk. And of course if you love the old school feeling, white chalk is the best! The best ever. So that is why the impact of having a black chalkboard wall is so much better than the other colors.
Ok cut the crap. Now we talk about chalk pencil. I mean, CHALK PENCIL, this is super duper cool! Right?
And I dont wait a second to get this baby. So I have had ordered online which got me some christmas discount which apparently drives me nuts and bought some other stupid stuff along the way.
And the pencil got me damn excited. I thought the pencil was a real chalk stuck in a pencil. Instead, I think its like a color pencil. White color pencil.
But I thought there was still hope, the box says its best used with their chalkboard paint. So I thought of course, all chalkboard paints are the same. So I thought. Yeahh.
So that part came out so wrong. So so so wrong. Gahhh. Its a bit expensive for a box of 5 pieces of pencil with a sharpener, so this must work! Nahhh.
The effect is lovely, I admit. But the part where you wanted to remove it, you gotta try it!
I really really love how it goes. I really do. But the fact that its not gonna come off that easy, I didnt dare to use that on my wall. Since I have couple of chalkboard myself, why not use them for good!
I dont use them that often so, there you go. I love my arabic calligraphy. The pencil worked wonders. Its just that you really really need to do your artwork with perfection or else you will waste your time and energy just to get it off.
Anyway, I am one super satisfied customer and if they made it easier to get it off I would give this a 10. Yeapp.
Ohh I totally forgot to mention where I got this baby, yeapp my most favourite shop so far, Typo. I even went crazy while I was in Australia. I went to the shop twice. Million times online. We have them in Malaysia too. But somehow or rather I find it pricey and they dont have many choices compared to online.
Havent post anything for months here. Here I am. Back to post on my latest handmade project Im currently been working on.
Im currently in the midst of relocating stuff to our new home. Yes. A home. And of course more things to think. More things to buy and search for. Most of the things I searched for are classic piece or simple or vintage. But here in Malaysia, vintage piece is the most expensive. Yeap.
So most of the simple and practical pieces we got from Ikea. Obviously.
Anyway, I've been working on doing wall art for the new home.
I have been thinking about it for months. And now Im smiling ear to ear since I found an easiest way to do it.
I have fondly admiring the rustic look when I was looking for a perfect theme for the new home. Yes we quarrel every now and then. LOL
But now hubby said whatever I do he just agreed aa long as its okay.
Okay okay back to the laziest project I've been working on. Since I call this lazy, what I need was only 2 washi tapes, 2 Lazysusan from Ikea and a scissor. You may need a design and a cutter to cut your desired design which I havent done yet. Haha.
Its a bit weird for me to update in blog using the new phone. This is the only app that makes me uncomfortable. Else, so far everything is perfect.
Havent been quilling for ages. So it takes some time to warm up.
And I do have major things to do since last month. Its all been good. And more to come. And I do looking forward for our next month trip to kangaroo land! I cant wait to visit their markets. I heard they are awesome and already giddy giddy up in making list of stuff I would like to search there.
Ohhh I cant wait!
Of all the exhaustion, I think this is worth the while.
