{Post #880} New Sign

I mentioned that we took down our Christmas decorations a few days ago.  I left up a new Christmas sign that was in our living room.  I wanted the incentive to finish a new sign to put up in its place.  Here is the new sign from afar, closer up, then at the table where I had just finished painting it.

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know I have been painting monogram signs for wedding gifts.  This is another option for that idea.  I needed this to be a bit larger than one of my monogram signs that have just one initial.

One of the girls at my church saw me painting this:

She asked me to paint her one as she is getting married this summer.  Her "new" name is very long, so I thought about turning the sign to "landscape" setting.  I played around with it to make one for my family.  I think this works!!

Yes, Julie, that is my Emily in the picture above.  Don't even think about it.

I like both of the signs that you did but the thing I really like on the Parker sign is how you painted the established 1988 through the name rather than below it. Makes it look really classy.

P.S. 1988 was the year we "established" too. At our house we always say 88 was GREAT!!

great signs.

The signs are so neat and creative.

I like the top right ornament the best, but they are all very pretty.
