One of my recent Etsy customers was looking for fun signs to display on her double front doors of her home. I customized her text into a design and incorporated the black/white polka dot ribbon that she had requested.
Today is one of those days that I HAVE to think summer. In the Michiana area, we were blasted with yet another round of cold & snow. I mean LOTS of snow. I'm beginning to wonder if things will ever melt or thaw here...
My in-laws have a cute, little condo up on Diamond Lake, where we are lucky to spend lots of time in the summers. This winter, it was updated with a fresh coat of paint & new counter tops. My mother-in-law (aka Meeka) asked me to pop on up there to help her designate what she should "keep" and "let go of" in the place. Then comes the fun part...she asked me to do some shopping this spring for her to purchase some things for the condo! Twist my rubber arm! Shopping = happiness for me. We made a nice list and I hope to feature some of the goodies in the coming weeks.
One of the items I suggested she purchase was a fun, large basket for the entry way. Everyone walks in & kicks off their flip-flops, so a cute basket was definitely needed. I bought the basket at TJ Maxx for $19.99 and added a wood plaque with chalkboard paint from Hobby Lobby. I then used my awesome Silhouette Cameo to cut out white vinyl lettering (Pharmacy font) that I adhered to the plaque and secured it with some ribbon I had. So fun + makes me think of summer...until I look out the window here, that is. Ugh.
