While my photos are Halloween-themed, I use the idea around my house year-round.  I took a few antique books and applied chalkboard paint, and they make perfect message holders around the house.  A few are scattered on my desk for "to do lists" or inspiration, while three are hung from a ribbon on my mantle to create a swag whose message I can change instantly.  Isn't chalkboard paint fantastic?  Smiley
