Chalk Pen Love Letters

chalkpen1Day Three: Love Letters on the Bathroom Mirror (or any  mirror!)


This Christmas, I wrote all over our mirrors in the house. Little notes of the season, ushering in the light of the world. And IZ, being the romantic that he is, said at one point, “It’s like little love notes for me!”

So, of course, I promptly went upstairs and created a real love note for him. Our initials in a simple heart adorn a vintage mirror in our bathroom: and I smile every time I see it.

Ok, so the location is not so romantic, but let’s face it: the bathroom is a room we visit… a lot… in the course of a day. Unlike, say, the gym! And who wouldn’t want to be greeted with a little love note when they look into the mirror? The chalk pens hold up to the steam well and erase in a jiffy if you make a mistake or want to change out the message before your relatives come and visit. Ahem. 




Chalk Ink pens are a great way to express your love this Valentine’s Day! And you don’t have to be an artist to do it. Just express your feelings or write out a favorite poem. What? Not into poetry? Bet you have a favorite song with a lyric that would get the point across.  Or, you could amp up the sex appeal and profess your (not so good) intentions! 





See, you don’t even have to have good penmanship! Just get creative. Don’t know where to start? Check out my pinterest board Creating Everyday Romance for some inspiration! Don’t get overwhelmed by the artistic nature of some of those pins. Most of them were created on a computer. But if you break down parts of each one, and sample a few of the ideas, you’ll still be  able to create a lovely little design that says, “I love you.” Remember, hand made is wonderful no matter what!



Bonus: no lipstick was harmed in the expression of your true love on the bathroom mirror! 


Chalk pens can be found online or at your local craft store. I love using the wider chisel tip pens. So, what are you waiting for? Go express your love.
