Eat Dessert First

Well, I finally made some time to update the chalkboard wall in my gift shoppe. To be honest with you, it’s been completely blank since christmas! Embarrassing, I know.

The other day I stumble upon this pin via my good ol’ friend Pinterest and was immediately inspired!

 I let the image stew in my brain for a bit. I knew I wanted my new wall to be cheerful, fun and summery. And since you know how much I love a good quote, I thought I’d throw one of those in there too.

With the idea finally realized in my head, I got to work!

And here’s what I came up with…

Super cute, right?

Cheerful, fun, summery, and delicious! Perfect!

This has been one of my favorite quotes for quite some time. I love desserts, so I adore this quote for the obvious reasons, but I think it also serves as a reminder to get out and enjoy life. Have fun. Live your dreams. Indulge. Takes risks and have fun. If you want to do something, just do it!

A great way to approach life, right?

Don’t mind if I do!

So what do you think of my new chalkboard wall?


  1. Michael, I am so glad you popped up on my Pinterest page. Love seeing your posts. My daughter just purchased a different home and wants to paint food and cooking sayings on her dining room wall. This will be great inspiration for her. Thanks.

  2. I think you have very neat chalkboard handwriting, and speaking from experience, I know thats not easy! I really do like how you interpreted your inspiration picture. Is that something you plan to change with the season? Monthly? Its such a fun feature… I want to do one in my house!

  3. Hi Michael..
    Seems your quite a talented one. Have you thought about perhaps turning your drawings into prints. They are quite whimsical.
    Wendy :)

  4. I saw your wall on Pinterest, and it inspired me, so I added something similar to my chalkboard wall in my kitchen. I used your quote and lovely layout, and added a menu section underneath for dinner tonight: ice cream, steak, potatoes, broccoli. My kids are already looking forward to dinner- thanks for the inspiration!!!
