Mia Nolting Draws Letters makes me smile. For one dollar, Mia will write your name in chalk and email you a print-quality photo of it before it disappears. She hopes to write enough names to pay off her “outrageous” art school student loan balance.

Her other projects are also very sweet, from her vibrant patterns to her thoughtful lists. My favorite list is titled What I Want More Of, with only two items written: romance and breakfasts.

More romance and breakfasts? I’m in!

Another chalk project that makes me smile. Have you met Dana Tanamachi? I’m floored by her talent, but also by the incredible impermanence of her art, aren’t you?

P.S. — In Denver, we went to a chalk festival.
