Chalkboard art and some links

A new week means it's time for a new drawing on Penny's chalkboard wall!
This week brought the good news that I've been accepted to 3rd Ward's third annual Handmade Holiday Craft Fair! Here's a pic of my table from last year's show. It's a very cool location, with vendors I haven't seen anywhere else. For example, Chris found a guy selling handmade guitar microphones. He bought one and thinks it's the best guitar mic he's ever owned. So if you're in the Brooklyn area, come on out! Visit the link for all the info.
Since it's Thanksgiving week, I thought I'd share the link for my favorite new charity, Youth of Malawi. Some friends of mine visited Malawi for the first time this year and witnessed the unimaginable poverty and disease first hand. They began this charity. Their charity's first project is to take 300 orphans to the beach for the very first time. Chris and I loved this idea so much we sponsored one of the children. Visit the link for how you can be a part of this wonderful day. Already I feel extra thankful for all that we have. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I love the idea of a chalkboard wall... then I wouldn't mind our kiddo coloring on the walls. :) Congrats on getting into the craft fair!
