chalkboard props {diy!}

So, those of you who know me well know that the mere fact that I’ve attempted a crafty diy project is an accomplishment in and of itself.  Not only did I attempt, but I also completed said project, and the results are even cuter than I’d expected!  Granted, from the time I bought the supplies (decorative wood plaques, chalkboard paint, and antique white craft paint) in October until this past weekend, a coat of primer was the only progress I’d made.  Yes, I’m saying I bought all of the crafty elements 4 months ago, primed the plaques, and then lost all ambition and they have sat in our guest bedroom until just this past weekend.  BUT the upcoming wedding of my brother-in-law and his sweet fiancé inspired me to finish the project so they can be christened properly in my very first wedding shoot!  (Let’s not discuss the 18+ inches of snow that is threatening our plans to soak in that florida sunshine and precious family time this weekend.)

I know what you’re thinking: show us the chalkboards already!  So, here they are:

Bonus adorable furry baby shot: our coonhound, Mona, felt that she wasn’t getting enough of my attention so she solved that dilemma by plopping down on the floor right in front of my camera.

I hope all of you stay safe and warm this snowy Valentine’s Day weekend!  Thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings!  In the coming days/week, I’ll be posting shots from a mini-portrait session this past Sunday with some sweet friends of ours, so come back to visit soon!
