I'm going to share a project that I am really proud of that I made (with the help of my wonderful husband) for my Dad and step mom for a Christmas gift this year. I have always felt that parents and grandparents are the most difficult people to buy presents for. After racking my brain for ideas on what I could purchase and coming up with nothing, I decided it was time to create. Last year I made them a lap quilt full of little green trees with the family cabin in mind.
This year I wanted to make something for the new cabin that is currently under construction and a wood sign came to mind. First I enlisted Josh for help. He cut, pieced and screwed together some scrap wood we had in the garage. After finding the time and motivation, I used paint I used to paint all of the living room trim and our mantle last winter. While I was waiting for coats to dry, I decided it would be an excellent time to add a fresh coat of paint to all of our trim in the hallway. Two and a half hours later, I was ready for my second coat.
