Lately, I have been playing with a product called Chalk Couture. Have you heard of it? It’s the latest and greatest product for those who like to chalk. And it’s not just chalk…it’s ink too! I absolutely love it. Chalk Couture uses these silk screen transfers and specially formulated chalk pastes and inks so you can make the most awesome DIY décor for your home. I saw a video on it and was afraid to start ANOTHER hobby but then one day a lady whose Facebook page I follow because I liked her crafts and furniture did a video on it and mentioned joining her team. So I did. My designer kit cost me about $99 but had over $240 dollars worth of product.
My kits finally arrived and I will admit it sat for a while. I was afraid I would not be good at it or would mess up. I watched a ton of how-to videos and it looked so easy but I was still afraid. One night my sponsor Amy had a chalk workshop at her house and I went to that. I was hooked after that!
Now because I am a crafter, I decided to base my Chalk Couture business on pre-made items. I would purchase the transfers and then make things with them. I was chalking on everything…..chalk boards, re-purposed things, wood signs, glass, plastic and even paper. I did pretty good at the first and only craft show I attended last year. My favorite transfer was a big Rooster and one of the reasons I signed up. I still love that Rooster…LOL.
Then I discovered the ink. I had only used the ink once or twice then I wanted to make T-shirts for everyone using every transfer. The ink is so easy to use and make the shirts way more professional than using iron on vinyl and my Cricut.
This year I am branching out to sell the transfers,surfaces, paste and ink as well as finished projects so this will have me even more busy but it’s a product I really love.
