Road Sign Tutorial

3 more days until I post the winner of the Lisa Leonard Necklace.  A new winner monthly.  Just leave me a comment to enter.

You guys rocked the house yesterday.  WOW, so many creative links.   It’s still up if you have something you want to add to Get Your Craft On.

I was looking at my hutch the other day and was thinking that I needed some sort of sign…..made from wood…….then I see that

Paring Down

had added one to Get Your Craft On!  Perfect timing.  I’m still trying to decide what I want mine to say.  image It was also SO perfect that I saw this, because I don’t really have a lot of time to write a full feature today…….did you know it takes me at least 2 hours?  But I thought you’d all be satisfied with this project.  imageShe has a great tutorial.

imageAnd I love the idea of using chip board for your stenciling….gotta use them up somehow.

She also shares with you what she used to paint it.image  Looks great doesn’t it? image I think you’ll enjoy her blog.  Love the design……..you know I love pears………She’s a simple woman who makes you feel right at home.  Oh how I love creative women. Go surprise her!image

At first I thought the sign said NEVERLAND and I have to say I was thrilled. I was imagining an overgrown backyard turned children's playland. I'm a little in love with the image that created.

Great idea! Thanks for sharing. This would be a cool addition to my son's room. (Another item on the want to make it list!)
