The holiday West Elm catalog features the work of Dana Tanamachi, who I blogged about last January here. Page six in the catalog motivated me to decorate the front door for December:

Chalkboard Inspiration

No Comments   Posted by gretchen |  Category:Home Decor, Inspiration

I’d already packed away the Christmas decorations around the house, but my Christmas design on the front door chalkboard was still up. I just wasn’t sure what to put up next. Then yesterday, Kelley Moore posted a link on her Facebook page to a post on 100 Layer Cake about Dana Tanamachi. Dana’s chalkboard artwork and lettering is beautiful, and it guided me in my latest chalkboard design.

Every morning around here we go through a quick checklist before heading out the door, so I figured that a visual representation could only help us each get to work on time (truth be told, the checklist is really just for Brian, I’m excellent in the memory department).

It was fun to break out of my usual script-style of writing and do some block lettering. Definitely need some more practice, though.
