Pinterest is probably NEVER the correct source of a picture. Neither is any place like this one, where they list different photos gathered from all over the net. If you can’t find the original source, don’t post the image, how ever cute and amazing it is.

I did not notice a strong odor with my chalk cloth. It smells a little like vinyl, but not bad at all. I gave my nieces the mats and we have had a blast with them, reusing them often. I do use regular chalk with them, not the markers so I’m not sure if that was the problem or not. I have had mine for a while now, so I can’t vouch for the lots they are selling now, but I didn’t have any problem with odor or permanent marks.
I have seen it in my local Jo-Ann’s – you might try heading in there to see if they carry it and if you notice an odor there? Then you’d be able to check it out in person instead of just ordering it online. Hope that helps!

Nobody gives you a favour because Of superstition esp not the shopkeepers. Believe me I am an Indian. Also don’t be too close to the person in front of you and hug them!! You can wait patiently and if someone tries to come in front tell them go back firmly
As always, everything you do is beautiful. However, I was fascinated by the rolling pins of the glass. I didn’t notice the strong odor on my chalk. It smells a bit like vanilla, but not bad at all. I wiped out my nieces and we explode with them, often reusing them. Amaze me with all the crafting that is just going on in your place! Thanks so much for participating in Craft Schooling on Sunday.
I love the way you share these toddler-friendly Christmas Ornaments with us. For example, the Button Christmas tree. Toddlers, Kindergarten and Grade Ones could make these and be entranced by their own Ornaments. Thank you so much for all the crafts you show and explain to us.
