A reader left a comment on my Hometalk page about problems she was having mixing up the DIY chalk paint I had posted. Her paint turned out very thick and grainy. While I've never had any problems mixing up the paint, I was wondering if any of you had experienced similar problems. My only thought about why this might have happened is that the plaster of Paris was added to the water, rather than adding the water to the plaster. Any other ideas? If you have any suggestions, I'd love if you'd let me know in the comments section below!
Second, I am super excited to share that a girl from my hometown is going to be competing on Sunday as Miss Ohio in the Miss America pageant. And to top that, she was actually the winner of the preliminary talent competition. I haven't watched in years, but will definitely be tuning in this year. I live in a very small, rural area so this is a really big thing. I'd love to see her make it into the top 15.

I try my best to find images from their original sources to credit the owner of the picture. Sometimes the picture gets separated from it's source, and without a watermark cannot be traced easily. If you find something here that belongs to you or someone you know, please email me and I'll be happy to link back to you or remove the image if that is what you would like.
