Pallet Wood Christmas Noel Sign

In this post: a pallet wood Christmas sign that is easy to make. After our Thanksgiving meal, I convinced my husband to get the tree down from the attic so we could start Christmas decorating.  And in the midst of pulling out the bajillions of tangled strands of twinkle lights, I decided to get crafty … again.

Home for the Holidays Christmas Sign & Placemats

Home for the Holidays Christmas Sign & Placemats Since all of my kids,their spouses, and my mom will be here for Christmas, I’m inspired to work on a few new projects. The first  project started with a wood frame that came off of a canvas.  I had bought the canvas to use on another project, but messed that project up.  Since the frame that came inside the canvas is great, I cut the canvas off and saved the frame.  I bought {Read More}

Merry Little Christmas Chalkboard Sign, Chalking Series Project 11

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas Chalkboard Sign Today I would like to do something a little different. I’d like for you to share your merry little Christmas memories and I’ll share one of mine. I know sometimes Christmas can be a difficult time for some, but hopefully we all have at least one very merry Christmas memory. Maybe it was when you were a child and received a very special toy. Or maybe it was your first  Christmas as {Read More}

Barnwood Christmas DIY Chalkboard: Peace Joy Believe + Fun News!

Barnwood Christmas DIY Chalkboard: Peace Joy Believe I hadn’t intended to post any more Christmas projects until at least September, but while arranging my crafting studio (formerly my shed turned guest room) I came across a box filled with random stuff.  This small barnwood chalkboard frame was in it.  It was from my oldest son’s wedding. It was the perfect size for a Chalk Couture Christmas transfer I hadn’t yet used and wanted to try. It’s the Peace Joy Believe {Read More}

DIY Christmas Tree Farm Canvas Sign & Chalk Couture Giveaway Winner

DIY Christmas Tree Farm Christmas Sign I wanted to squeak in a Christmas in July post before July was over, but I had some trouble with the project. So instead of a Christmas in July project, this will have to be a Christmas in August project.  Oh well.  What’s one day? I received some new Chalk Couture transfers and just had to play around with some of the Christmas ones I ordered.  I had the perfect canvas to make one {Read More}

The Sexiest Man Alive and a North Pole Sign

When riding in the car with a teenager, conversations can be all over the map.  One minute my son will be talking about a video game, the next minute we’re discussing the Jackson 5, because we heard them on an oldies radio station. Today, our conversation swerved toward People’s “Sexiest Man Alive”. #WeirdConversationToHaveWithTeenageSon

DIY Christmas Sign and Mrs. Claus Printable

 I may not love to cook and bake, but I do love cooking up new projects and printables to share with you all, and I’m really excited with how adorable my latest DIY Christmas sign turned out! I had so many sweet compliments on the Mrs. Claus Cookie Company wooden sign I made, that I decided to design a printable chalkboard sign version that anyone can print for themselves, without needing to mess with making a stencil or painting.  I’m also including {Read More}

Rustic Sign for Christmas – 12 Days of Christmas {Day 5}

Rustic Sign for Christmas – 12 Days of Christmas {Day 5} The project I had planned for Day 5 of my 12 Days of Christmas was a bust.  It just wasn’t turning out as I’d envisioned it, so I was wracking my brains to come up with another project.  Then I realized I didn’t have a sign planned yet, and I love doing signs for Christmas.  While soaking in the bathtub later (a.k.a. my “office”), I looked up at the rustic {Read More}

Christmas Signs on Repurposed Things

I guess I’m a poor planner, because it never occurs to me to work on Christmas projects a few months in advance, so I have them ready to list in my shop BEFORE the holiday season starts, but every year, around late November, I realize I haven’t created anything for the Christmas season to sell.  This year was no exception, so I’ve only created a few signs, and I’m not sure I’ll make any more, since most people have already {Read More}

God Bless Us, Every One! – Repurposed Sewing Machine Table Salvage Sign

In past years, I didn’t get in the Christmas decorating groove until halfway through December, but this year it kicked in earlier, thank goodness!     As always, the first step for me in creating something is to dig through my stash of junk out in my workshop, to see what I have to work with.  I don’t usually know what I’ll make, but I grab anything that seems inspiring at the moment, so I grabbed a wooden rectangle-shaped piece {Read More}
