Ever want to try something new or go on adventure? I have to admit I’m the kind of person who doesn’t like to try many new things. I love trying new food and traveling to new places but some new things just make me too nervous. Luckily, there are a ton of YouTuber’s that are Ford Fiesta Movement agents who are traveling across the country trying new things and I get to experience new things all from the comfort of my computer.
Each of the agents use the new Ford Fiesta to inspire them to complete themed missions each month. Mystery Guitar Man used his Fiesta to make music, the ladies of Eleventh Gorgeous traveled to the Kentucky Derby (my dream!), and Kristina Horner tried slack lining, which looks like a lot of fun!
Karen Kavett used her Fiesta to pick up an old table and transform it with a little chalkboard paint. This is such a fun idea! I’ve used chalkboard paint on wine glasses, frames, and wood crates but never thought of using it on furniture. I think it would be a fun idea for a kids table in a play room or even an entry way. What do you think?

It’s almost December which means it’s almost Christmas! After you set up the Christmas tree this weekend, try one of these festive projects to help get you in the holiday spirit. I partnered with Avery to create some fun holiday printables using their labels and tags.
I used the printable 2″ square white labels to create an advent calendar. I created washi tape inspired labels numbered 1-24 and printed them on the square labels. I placed one label on each envelope and used washi tape to mount them on our dining room menu chalkboard. I’m biased towards chocolates, but you could also place gift cards or other small treats inside each envelope. These labels would also work great on paper boxes or bags if you wanted to create an advent calendar for larger gifts.
Download the advent calendar labels here and use with the Avery 2″ square white labels.
I also gave the Avery printable tags a try and created monogram tags that could be used several different ways. Since I love garlands, I thought it would be fun to use them to create a banner that says, “Merry & Bright” to decorate our foyer table.
Download the Merry & Bright banner here and use with the Avery printable tags.
I also created a tag for each letter of the alphabet so you can create your own banner or use them to adorn gifts, like I did. You can print a tag with each of your friends initials on it to make their gift a bit more personal.
