I picked up these cutting boards at our local grocery store.

I thought they were so cute.

I could not just leave well enough alone with these.


 As you can see they came with a cute little Christamas tree spreader.

seasoned with my chalk after completely dry.

I added my Debbiedoo’s original.

A rooster.

You can also personalize these cutting boards with a name, or saying.  I chose to keep some plain and personalize some others for gifts.

Just that simple!

You may recall my chalkboard tags from my diy hostess gift idea.

    What an awesome idea….but what stood out to me is the word “believe”. That’s the word I chose for 2014…or felt God prompt me to choose. This is just yet another confirmation!!!

    Great idea Debbie… love cutting boards and chalk boards … so this pleases me. They turned out really cute and of course, just had to have a rooster on one.
    Happy New Year.
