Bubbling Over with Fun

Monday, September 27, 2010


Oh man. If my thoughts were really put on bubbles, I would be in some trouble. People always wonder how I think up and say the strangest things…if you only knew what I didn’t say! (Side bar: speaking of things I will never say – I will never call out a girl for being too old to own an American Girl. That’s for you Spiel).

Well the latest trend in DIY photo booths at parties and weddings is chalkboard thought bubbles. While people are selling these Thought Sticks on Etsy, I’d imagine that they aren’t too hard to make with some wooden plaques, sticks, chalkboard paint and glue. Oh and don't you love the background in the photos above? All different colored streamers hanging down creates a fun, punchy back drop!

These things were also super popular on the mom blogs (I read them for work – let’s not talk about it. Mom bloggers are a scary breed). Anyways , mom bloggers would give these sticks to their kids with some chalk and take their “first day of school” pictures.
