Say it in Chalk

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Dana Tanamachi's been busy since chalkboard paint became the new, hip back splash on almost any surface in a home or office.

By workday, she's a graphic designer in New York, but on nights and weekends, she's a chalk letterer -- an idea/title she may or may not have invented -- and draws temporary designs and messages for special occasions.
