Last night my dear mother and I went shopping and we stopped into an art store, Jerry's Artamrama. This is now my FAVORITE store ever! I've now just started getting into soft pastels. If you've never used them before they sort of feel like chalk. After trying them out a bit mother asked if I would change her chalkboard sign. This is what I came up with and some help from Pinterest. ;)
