I am a stay-at-home mom to an amazing, energetic 6 year old boy. I also have a beautiful, intelligent 22 year old "bonus" daughter. I have a minor, okay major, obsession for design and creating. I studied interior design at CSUSacramento and have dabbled in it ever since. I always have some kind of project that I am working on whether it is painting a chair I picked up at a garage sale or organizing a closet. I have recently ventured into the world of teaching(?). Beginning the summer of 2015, I decided that I would host creative workshops at my home. They have been a blast and a hit. It is so great to share creativity with others. I hope to share some of my projects, creations, and workshops with you.
My good friend Auntie Tay (https://www.youtube.com/c/auntietay) is apart of an awesome YouTube channel called Millennial Moms. She has been filming some of my Creative Workshops that I host and putting together some awesome videos. Here is Auntie Tay’s video she posted to the Millennial Mom’s channel about my “Family Celebrations” sign.
It is a great project to help you remember all those important days to celebrate throughout the year. It makes a great gift too.
If you are interested in purchasing a “Family Celebrations/Birthdays” sign kit, here is the order form.
The summer on 2015 was a time of “taking the leap” for me. For a looooong time I have wanted to share my creativity with others and introduce them to new ways, tools, and techniques. Well, I finally did it. It took a lot of courage, but I am so glad I did.
Here is my first “Creative Workshop”.
The ladies had the option of making a mason jar organizer or a hat rack (or whatever you wanted to hang from it rack).
I have a really bad habit of not finishing projects that I start. I started working on this sign last Christmas and now it is August. Well, I finally got around to finishing this one. This rustic “Joy to the World” sign is about 30×24 and is going to be a great addition to Christmas decorations this December. It is done and ready for display.
I used white chalk paint for the background on the rustic piece of plywood. I chose a font that I liked for the lettering, then printed and cut out them out. I placed the letters, with double-stick tape, on the board and traced each one. Then I simply painted in the letters with house paint. I like to use house paint a lot for my projects because it is cheaper per ounce than acrylics. I will often go to the hardware store and see if they have any “oops” paints, the colors that were mixed incorrectly or someone decided they didn’t want them. Those are usually supper cheap.
This is a fun and simple project. It’s a wonder why it took me 8 months to get it done. Oh yeah, it’s because of that whole mothering thing. My boy comes first.
I hope you enjoy this sign and can create one of your own. If not, send me a message and I’ll make one for you. I promise it won’t take me 8 months to get YOURS done. 😉
