I collect scraps of wood. Nothing makes my heart beat faster than driving by a new build in the neighborhood and seeing a dumpster filled with wood scraps. I'm a lucky girl because my hubby has not problem diving in and grabbing me the wood scraps I
need want. This scrappy gem has been sitting in the corner of the garage waiting to be made into a welcome sign for our front door.
I painted the background during a craft night I hosted with my friends (see previous post) and set it aside until I had time to add my personal touch. Thanks to National Take Your Child To Work Day, also known as Free Labor Day in my house, I had extra time to work on my welcome sign. (There will be a post about that wonderful day coming soon) After Greta got bored painting backgrounds for me, I asked her to pick out a collection of papers that I could use for my sign. She did a great job, I love the colors! It was all quick and easy... I cut out petals for the flowers and printed positive words for the sign, distressed everything and glued it all into place. I then did a little shading, applied a good coat of outdoor sealer and I glued on my initial, Like magic, I have the happiest welcome sign to place at my front door.
