And we are going on vacation in less than a few days. I was afraid we would not make it back in time and I did not want to wait until I could get some chalk either from Instant Chalkboard or go buy my own (which I can't because Mike takes the car to work everyday). And trying to tell him where to go is like talking to a brick wall. So, please forgive me that I won't have any pictures of me using the Instant Chalkboard sheets. I had this all planned out in my mind but then when it came and I had no chalk, and I was short on time, I figured it would be better to get it up instead of not.
I also am gonna have to admit that I thought by ordering the sheets that for some reason in my mind I thought they would be like a magnet type thing that would stick to the fridge. That was why I stayed away from the rolls also because of the peeling thing. So, it is my mistake for not fully reading but since it says it comes off really easy with no problems, I was gonna give it a shot anyway until I searched for the chalk that was suppose to come with it, then my plans sorta took a nosedive.
I still love the idea and when we get back from vacation I will stop somewhere and get some chalk and put up another (just a review) post with me using the sheets and writing on them. For now, since I knew they wanted this up kinda in a timely manner, and I did not think we would be back in time, will be doing this taking my grandson's words and the pictures from Instant Chalkboard to explain about their products.
I did not ask them to take pictures and send theirs to me because his mom just had surgery for breast cancer and I was not gonna impose on them to do my work under those circumstances. So, this all happened so fast and really backfired on me big time. I was able to get J.W. to tell me how he liked the chalkboard and what he used it for and he was really excited about it. I told him it was one of his birthday presents but early since his isn't until August.
He says he draws pictures of dragons (his favorite thing) on them and he leaves hugs and kisses for Mom there also. He knows she does not feel good, just not how bad things are. So, he says he mostly draws things to make her feel good and he said Dad had put a sheet on a cardboard so he could make her a different "get well card" everyday. I just about cried but held it in. This is how he described it and I found a picture on Instant Chalkboard that I think would look similar:
Oh, I finally, found the video on the website on how to apply. Looks like it mainly deals with the shapes but I think it would also apply to the others as well. If you have a credit card or even your drivers license card, you can get this to work anywhere and then I watched them peel it right back off, so it really does look like it won't cause any damage to whatever surface you are using.
