As a kid I hated chalkboards and chalk. It had to do with being allergic to chalk and chalky substances. I remember a teacher forcing me to write at a chalkboard anyway (under the guise that it was non-allergic chalk) and then my hands itched terribly all afternoon. All that to say I don't have fond memories about chalkboards so I wanted to curl into a little ball and weep when I heard that Merry Monday was doing the chalkboard technique this week.
So after I was done sniveling, I put on my big girl panties and dealt with it. After all, the chalkboard technique does not involve actual chalk or chalkboards. It does, however, involve heat embossing that is a whole other story!
