My daughters good friend has two children, the youngest of which was born recently. This friend of my daughters is very special to me because she has been in my daughters life since the 4th grade and she was also in my Girl Scout troop - yes I was a Girl Scout leader (I am also a lifetime Girl Scout!). For the first child my daughter asked if I would help her to paint the letters of the child's name to match the crib bedding her friend chose, and of course I said yes! After looking at some pictures of the bedding we came up with a color scheme and decided butterflies. We wanted the letters to be just different enough, but still match the room and I think we did a pretty good job as you can see in the picture below.
So of course when child #2 was born we needed to make more letters - fair is fair, right? So once again we got right to work on trying to match the bedding....this time it was flowers! Again, we wanted them to match just enough, but still be original and...... I think they came out pretty good!
Once the colors and design are decided on, the process is really pretty simple!
Here's what we did:

There is nothing better than fresh food made from scratch! This eggplant parmesan was made with all natural and fresh ingredients, most of which was grown right in my backyard! The sauce is made fresh from cherry tomatoes I picked, the ricotta is made from scratch, and the eggplant is right out of the garden! I also used fresh grated parmesan cheese and fresh mozzarella. There is nothing better! Simply delicious :-)
I had always loved these old looking signs but never really thought about making my own until I came across a Pinterest Pin on how to do it yourself. Then when I really started doing some research I actually came across several different ways they could be done. I settled on the method I use below because it really is simplest and I had all the materials to get started right away. I absolutely love the results and can't wait to make many more as gifts for the upcoming holidays. I am even working on a sign for my craft fair booth!
Many thanks to Tammy at Homespun Happenings for the post "I Made A Sign." I couldn't have done this without you!
