A Fresh New Year

I'm in the mood for a fresh start this New Year, so instead of the traditional sparkle and glitter for New Year's Eve, I went a little different route.  

I incorporated my yellow and black New Year's printables here and there around the house, and if you'd like some for yourself, click here for the free download!

And the cafe shelves in the breakfast room are no longer naked, thanks to a few things I pulled together from around the house...

My favorite part is the chalkboard which is another of the famous "Easiest Chalkboards Ever" I first told you about here.  Seriously.  No paint, no mess.  This is a 75¢ black poster board from Dollar General.  (I haven't tried other brands yet.)  Just cut it to the size of your frame and you're done.  Oh, did I mention it will ERASE?  Um, yes, I truly love it.

 I hope you're inspired to make a fresh start this New Year!  

Happy 2013!
