I love making stuff. But like most mamas, I have a lot going on, and when I do get some free time, I don't want to spend it setting up (or cleaning up!) for a project.
But not chalk! There's virtually no set-up: It's just chalkboard, chalk, and a pencil sharpener! Maybe grab a couple of q-tips and an eraser.
In some ways I had my doubts about chalk lettering: I can draw, but my handwriting is, ahem, less than stellar.

I love that I can build my confidence looking at this huge stash of alphabets, and start designing my own stuff. And I really like that I can just sit down with some chalk and a board and do something creative with my hands that doesn't cost me a fortune to try!
If you're looking for a hobby that's mom-friendly, I totally recommend chalk!
