This post is sponsored by Michaels but all opinions are my own.

Wanna know a secret?  I actually really enjoy cooking. Yup. I hate cleaning up the mess, but sure love throwing a bunch of things together and eating the outcome.

Because of my fun hobby, I swear I spend a fortune on fresh herbs. I decided to remedy that by making my own herb garden.  Now I know this isn’t anything new or earth shattering, but I was searching for a fun idea on the Michaels website.  They now have online shopping and my new favorite feature is the one-click shopping lists.  This is where you see a project you want to make and you click a button and it loads EVERYTHING you would need for that project into your cart.  You can go through your cart and delete something you may have already, or change paint colors, but you don’t have to search or think about all those little things you might need!  I think this is genius! 

So I found the chalkboard clay pots and decided these would be so fun for my herb garden.  I added in an extra paint color and I was done!  It was that easy to get everything ordered! Now I just had to wait for the box to arrive at my house. (I love that I didn’t have to leave my house to do this!)


The instructions for the project are right on the Michaels website too.  The projects are so fun and easy that you can throw your own twist to it and make it exactly what you want.

I wanted to add in a bit more color so I added Sea Glass from Martha Stewart Multi-Purpose Satin Acrylic Paint. I love how the Sea Glass paint makes the green of the herbs pop.

I also added a the Sea Glass around the chalkboard picks.  I loved that pop of color on there too!



So what herbs do you use most?

  2. Your projects are so fun and I love that they are “doable”. I could actually start and finish them before the zombie apocalypse comes. LOL

    Anyhow… Thanks!
