Window Picture

I was so excited to finally finish it!! I got this old window frame from a Friend of a Friend that was replacing his old windows. I printed out 8x8 pictures at Costco and I used clear photo corners placed backwards on the pictures' corners so that I can replace the pictures when I want to. The fall finding I got at M's they had a sale 70% off and now it is 90% off, so I decorated my house with the rest! The "Eternity" word is vinyl. I have heard that there are more window like these usually found at thrift stores and if you have a habitat for humanity store, they have them too. It is such a nice creative look in the house!!

Now creating Custom SignBoards

This vinyl saying was custom made for someone who had been waiting and waiting for another person to do her order (over 3 weeks!). I had it ready to deliver the very next day after she placed her order. All I needed from her was the size, saying, and font! Her finished board was 6" by 38". She emailed this to me:

I just wanted to thank you again for the lettering you did for me and to let you know I finished my project. It turned out great and wondered if you would like to see what I had done with it?

I can create any custom vinyl for you too!! Only 35 cents a linear inch (up to 12" tall)! An amazing deal!

I can also custom create a finished board for you- Still 35 cents a linear inch for the vinyl plus the real cost of woodboard, sawtooth hangers, and paint!

Here's Your Sign

This was a fun sign to make for my Husband , Brad, as he is a die hard hunter! Especially Ducks and Geese. This sign is no exaggeration either! :) This will go on the door of his office!
I bought the wood plaque at Michael's and was actually planning on making a clock with it, but there was not enough space and I really dislike cluttering! The letters are cut with the George cartridge on my Cricket(1 inch) and I used black card stock and some misc. rub ons! An old call lanyard is what I used to hang it with! It worked wonderfully!
