I updated our kitchen chalkboard for spring.

Let Your Light Shine

But also, because my daughter, Blondie, has a once in a lifetime experience going on right now. As a fifth grader, she is participating in the High School play. They are doing “The Wiz”, and she is a Munchkin. This is a very new experience for her, so I am always trying to remind her to “Let Your Light Shine”.

I used chalk ink markers and blended the colors while they were still wet. If you would like to see more about how I made this chalkboard, you can go here.

I have used this saying before in our home.

Let Your Light Shine


This maple bucket is in our basement. I figure, you can never remind your children too many times how amazing they are.
