Chalk Mat madness

This came together in what feels like seconds and I'm so excited about it. It's a roll-up mat with chalk cloth on one side and oilcloth on the other. Elsie Marley made one for the entire table, which is totally amazing. But, I couldn't resist the on-the-go-ness of the rollup version. I should mention it is for the kiddos, though, it may be hard to discern who likes it more. I was just thinking...sometimes we just need a little extra time to enjoy our pancakes at the diner or a sip of coffee that is enjoyed rather than gulped. Maybe this will buy me that luxury. And, we are always on the lookout for things to bring a bit more quiet time at home. I was intending to roll it out (ha!) at Christmas but we might have to bust it out earlier than that.
I forgot to add, I got the whole kit from TaDaa Studio on etsy, oh brilliant etsy.

this is great--did you have to order the fabric or find it locally?
