A thrill of hope… December 28, 2015 – Posted in: chalkboard, christmas, painting, signs, word art

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!!!

I know the blog has been quiet for a few weeks, but there were so many projects I had been working on that were Christmas surprises! You can expect a little blogging overload now that the presents have all been opened.

First up, this wood sign for my aunt:

 I was inspired by THIS Aimee Weaver design, but changed it up and put a chalkboard spin on it. So, it isn’t really anything like hers anymore now that I look at it. I made it my own, and that is a good thing. I don’t want to be a copycat.

A little behind the scenes reality here… I almost forgot to dot my “i”s- I did the one in rejoices and when I was getting ready to wrap it up I saw the “i” in thrill was undotted, too! Since that dot was still wet, I was going to wrap it in the car on the way there and then the “f” in “of” looked too much like a “t” so I made my husband turn around and go home so that I could fix it. I couldn’t have lived with myself!

Just a short post today- I still have some recovery to do around the house- but I have lots more to share later!
