{my} table name tags

Since it's so easy, inexpensive, and with immediate result, I couldn't wait to make my own.




... A bike ride to the river,
... a backpack full of pebbles,
... a whiteout pen,
... a coat of clear glaze 

...and I have my basket of name tags!



I made mine writing the name in white, using a whiteout pen... dries almost immediately and I had my basket ready in my kitchen in about 20 minutes.
(I'm excluding the time needed to get to the river, pick the rocks, bike back in a hot, steamy, 95 F,  morning, and rinse the rocks - and take a shower, too -...).



xox, d.
