My good friends from The Mustard Seed had a vision for a sign they could attach to their tent at the Farmers Market they sell at every Thursday. Here are the signs I did for them. This is just a sneak preview as I am waiting for the final pictures with them hanging from their tent. (Hopefully this Thursday, hint hint Juli!)
I am busier then ever, I keep getting more sign orders and emails for pricing. So stay tuned I will have lots of signs to share as I am hoping to get them all done before my vacation starts Friday. Hope everyone has a great Sunday!
Remember the dresser I was telling you about? Here it is. We found it in a basement leftover from an estate sale, its good to have connections because you get to go in a pick through whats left for a steal. This dresser was in the basement falling apart. I almost didn't take it but I could resist the carved drawers and glass knobs. All we had to do is put it back together. The locks even still work with a skeleton key. I just love the patina!
We picked up this dresser missing a drawer knowing Chris could work his magic on it and cut it down to size. He has done a wonderful job once again. It is now at The Shops at 25 West for sale if anyone is interested. I have sold a ton of furniture this month so I am scrambling to get things down there to replace what is gone. What a crazy month! We recently found an old dresser (falling apart) in a basement. It is beautiful with carved drawer fronts, locks on each drawer that still work with a skeleton key. Can't wait to share it with you. If anyone reading this has purchased any of my "stuff" I would LOVE to see pictures of how and where you used them in your home. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Isn't summer supposed to be relaxing??? Hopefully soon, my vacation starts in a week and whatever doesn't get done will have to wait!
I have been busy finishing up some custom signs. Here are two more that I recently completed. I find myself singing the hymn everything I walk by this sign.
Such a true statement!
Sorry for the lack of posting I have been busy with lots of quotes and orders. I recently took on an order for 17 signs. So between work, kids, and walking my 4 miles a day I am busy working on orders and painting furniture. Don't get me wrong I am not complaining but I wanted to get everything done before I go on vacation in 2 weeks.
A few months ago my cousin purchased her first home. Of course I wanted to give her something that would mean something. She chose these words because they describe what Christ did for us on the Cross, and they are a good reminder to me that I don't have to live a defeated or hopeless life but can instead have joy that God forgives my sins and welcomes me as His child.
I will be delivering this sign soon, I sure hope she loves it!
I am another year older and hopefully a little wiser, LOL!
Since I am a Cancer I thought I would share...this is me!
Cancer Personality Profile
Emotional sometimes, Cancer sun sign people tend to be some of the more caring people in our world. They are very loving and value family and friends over fame or fortune. You will always find this loving person with a dear pet of some sort.
Extremely intuitive and imaginative, these people make great artists and designers. You will find them where ever there is a need for creativity and flare. Never underestimate the scope of their imagination either.
Freedom loving, courageous and pioneering. Loves adventure, is self assertive and has as abundance of energy. Can be enterprising and will work from sun up to sun down, the Cancerian will run not walk. He is generally forceful by nature and very direct.
Not a risk taker, the astrological sign of cancer is not likely to be betting the farm on a not so well thought out venture. Rest assured this wise person will be checking all the angles before plunging in to anything.
I was commissioned to re do this sign for the Historic Palatine Church. This Lutheran church was founded in 1749. They no longer use it for regular services but for a few throughout the year. I can't wait to get started, I will be sure to share the finished sign with you.
(This side of the sign isn't too bad, the other is extremely weathered.)
