blackboard tags...


JJ received these gorgeous blackboard place markers for her birthday from susieq, who found them in her favourite store in Dubai. JJ is planning to use them on Saturday night for a dinner with friends - in typical fashion she has planned the place settings before the menu! We have been dreaming up lots of uses for these tags. Here are a few ideas, let us know if you can think of any more.
The trouble with this idea is that we need to be willing to part with one!
To do this properly we need lots more (hint, hint, susieq)
Unfortunataly, there are no weekends on this calendar!

PS. Help desk fixed problems :)

How gorgeous! I love every single idea you have come up with to use them. You could also use them as labels for baskets - eg in a child's room so they categorise their toys.
Glad to hear you fixed your help desk problems too!

Just love these girls! They have a bit of a Riviera (Villa) Maison look about them.

Glad to see you finally got a response from your IT HelpDesk - I would seriously remind him of this when you are doing his next Performance Appraisal! I do an annual one on MOTH & it's surprising how nice he is to me in the lead-up to our Meeting!

They are absolutely gorgeous. I am just as bad and have the table settings worked out AGES before the food. I think i need to find a happy medium lol. Mel xxx

How pretty - love a blick of blackboard paint for props - always thought that placecards for a wedding would look gorgeous as blackboard painted mini pots with topiaries ... my imagination seriously runs wild sometimes!

Courtney said...
