Welcome to ChalkBoard Blue and A Giveaway!

 I'm excited to be able to announce and Debut my Blog and SOOOO excited you stopped by! I've wanted to start a Blog for sometime now where I share Good things about Life and Teach others about some of the projects I have completed in the past and plan to complete in the Future! I have been "Silent" Blogging up to this point so when you arrived here today, you would have some "substance" of  older posts to look at!  Feel free to Browse the navigation bar above.  I've been putting on my projects that I've built and other items and will place my future projects on as well.  So get comfy and stay for a while and nose around my Blog! Oh and if you would sign up as a follower or subscribe, it would do my heart so good! :) I also have a Share button/code on my Sidebar if you wanna share my blog on yours!  I Hope you enjoy my Blog and visit often!  

If you're wondering about the Name of my Blog?  Well for starters, I wanted something that describes what I do!   I build, design, craft,   photograph etc.  I've thought back through most of my projects and whenever I've started a project, I always start with a Blueprint of some sort.  It's usually in my mind, then sketched on paper  or a piece of wood, etc.  Of course, during the process of completing my project, my ideas change, thus I thought about a ChalkBoard.  You can always change what you write on them and isn't life all about Change?  Plus, Chalkboards are just Cool! What a fun place to Doodle!  

So I took the two elements: Chalkboard & Blueprints... Shortened them just a bit to add some attitude and thus I came up with ChalkBoard {Blue}  

To Celebrate the Debut of my Blog I thought it would be fun to have a Giveaway! Yippie! 

I made one of this as A Birthday Gift for my Sister and I thought: "Hmmmm, this would be a fun Giveaway to start my Blog with!"  Soooo Here's the Giveaway 

 Its a fun little "ChalkBoard", message center that has a Tiffany "Blue" Frame. (Perfect how it goes along with the Blog name eh?)  Its complete with hooks to hang misc. keys/items and a little cup to hold your chalk!  I also put some fun little pennant banners across the top for some flare and stenciled a cute little blue Bird for accent!  Below is how you can enter the Giveaway!
