Guest Post from my friend over at 733 blog :)

Hello readers, I have the honor of telling you that one of my mentor’s, Kim from 733 blog, did a Guest Post this week for me!

And here it is…!

hello

Hi Mom of TwoSalums readers! My name is Kim and I blog over at seven thirty three, a creative blog full of party ideas, free printables and a ton of kids crafts! I dabble in a lot of different mediums, so I hope you’ll stop by to see all the fun we have. I especially love connecting with my readers on Facebook and Instagram, though you can also find me lurking on Twitter, and pinning like crazy over on Pinterest. Today I’m here to share with you an easy little project that is perfect for kids, tweens and teens, as well as us artsy adults!

I made a wonderful discovery the other day. Maybe I’m stuck in the stone ages and all of you are going to tell me you’ve known this forever, but I was pretty excited. Using colored pencils on chipboard (or kraft paper) gives you a beautiful and bright drawing! Did you know this? Seriously cool.

I used some chipboard from Silhouette that I trimmed down to a small greeting card size and started drawing. Some of my colored pencils didn’t show up as well as others so keep that in mind.  Now I have a sweet little greeting card I can use to send a quick note with.  Give it a try, or at least let your kids try it! I’m sure they’ll love it as much as I do!

Stay up-to-date with all things seven thirty three:

***Isn’t she amazing! Her blog is one of my favorites and I normally have to pull myself away from it. The best part is that she has a ton of printables that she just gives away {for personal use only}. Be prepared to use a lot of ink as you will most likely want to download everything.

I love keeping you updated on my Facebook page and Instagram.
I also love to speak my mind in 180 characters or less on Twitter, and I pin like its my job on Pinterest.
Here is my Etsy shop as well if you are interested in taking a peek 🙂
