Green is my new best friend (and I'll never be blue again)

Back in November I was lucky enough to attend the Swanky Junque Swap organized by Marian aka Miss Mustard Seed, Karen aka The Graphics Fairy and Lynette from Wild Rose & Company.  It was a really fun event and I got to meet a  great bunch of gals (in addition to our gracious hosts), including Holly from Roller Coaster Life, Stephanie from Dial M for Minky,  and Sarah from The Thriftress.  Brittanie from Snickety Snacks was there with her gorgeous and delectable cake bites, which I admit to eating more than my fair share of!!

As part of the festivities, Miss Mustard Seed gave everyone in attendance a roll of Frog Tape.  (I love free stuff!)

Now I guess I must have been living a sheltered life, because I had never used Frog Tape before.  I had always been a blue tape kind of a girl!

Well let me tell you, I have seen the light and been converted!

This little baby has been in my home for a LONG time.

Bad cell phone pictures :(


Notice the cool crown on the back!

Like since the 80's.  Wow.  Remember all that cutesy-wootsy country stuff :)  The crock itself is awesome, but the cutesy had to go, go, go.

Frog tape and chalkboard paint to the rescue!  Unfortunately, I was working at night and totally neglected to take a picture of the actual process.  I just taped a rectangle around the cutesy with the Frog Tape and painted inside the rectangle with a couple coats of chalkboard paint.  Bye, bye cutesey.  Hello, good lookin'.

The lines created by the Frog Tape were sooo crisp and clean!  I have several big painting projects coming up and will totally be using Frog Tape.  Just don't tell my husband.  There are at least three rolls of that old blue stuff in the house. :(

Hope your 2011 is off to a great start!  Off to stock up on the green!
