Scrapwood sign~It’s a Spring Thing


I can’t quite seem to find the words to tell you how incredibly thankful we are for all of the prayers and encouragement for Grayson, THANK YOU! People near and far from around the world have been praying and God listened! Grayson was taken out of critical care yesterday, we are one step closer to going home!!!  I promise to continue to keep everyone posted, from the bottom of our heart, thank you so much!

I have had this post scheduled before Grayson became ill and I am so glad I didn’t have to miss out on it.  I am participating in It’s a Spring Thing with some of the most incredible bloggers out there!  Mary Beth from Cupcakes and Crinoline started us off with a delicious looking Lemon and Blueberry Butter Cake. Yesterday Jennifer from Dear Lillie shared her beautiful tablescape all set for Spring with gorgeous rustic elements. Kristin from Simply Klassic Home will be sharing on Thursday followed by a ton of more talent you don’t want to miss!

A few weeks ago I decided it would be fun to make a welcome spring sign and display it by our front door. (I’ll be honest, it’s still sitting somewhere in the house right now)

I grabbed scrap wood out of the hubby’s woodpile and went to work.

I  found a small piece of wood that would work to attach them altogether, I just sawed it in half  and used screws to attach the boards.

I Filled the holes with wood filler and sanded over the whole piece to make it smooth.

I painted on a coat of ASCP from a mix I used awhile back.

I free handed some words and graphics and painted them in, thank goodness the paint hides my horrible writing.

Learn how to make a scrapwood sign for spring!

Take Scrapwood, add Paint and you have a welcome Spring Sign!

  8. That is awesome! I’m so glad that Grayson is improving. I’ve been praying for him as well as strength for you and the rest of the family to be able to get through this. Having a sick child tends to make us feel helpless. Again, so glad he is improving.
