We hope that during this Christmas season, you have been able to take/create moments of peace and joy. “Getting everything done” or knowing that “everyone in my life is happy” is not a possible reality for most people. But stopping, looking around for the joy, lighting some candles and listening to your favorite Christmas music by candlelight — that could happen!
In the spirit of a joyful, peaceful Christmas we thought we’d recommend a gift that could bring some interaction and perhaps even a little quiet to your holiday gathering.
A handheld chalkboard. You can buy a chalkboard already created (we found this one at michaels.com,
or use chalk paint to paint your own.
Children can decorate the border around a chalkboard with simple painted designs, or just enjoy writing and drawing while dinner is cooking. You can also suggest games like hangman, tic tac toe, or pictionary.
Our family at Laney’s Old Village Paints wishes you a very Merry Christmas season!
