I finished it

Yesterday after I got done with my weekly grocery shopping I headed to the craft room to work on that plaque I said I was going to make.

Now I know most of you will look at this and think "why did she use such dark colors" My reason was because I asked her brother what her favorite color was. He said it changes all the time but right now her room is dark gray and burgundy.

I think I would have liked it a little lighter and brighter but this is what I got and this is what she'll get. I don't think it turned out too bad.

I was too chicken to do the writing right on the wood so I cheated and wrote it out on tissue paper then glued the words on.


  1. Very lovely! Your cat post on Facebook has made me so happy! I re-posted it, and must have played it over a dozen times. It will be my go-to video when I am down.

  2. I am betting she will love it. and I do wish I could write/print like you do. my printing is bad but my cursive is unreadable.. your artist ability shows in your letters

  3. I love it!! Just the right colors too!! xoxo

  4. It looks great! Well done on the lettering too. Gray is a popular color. So nice you got both your project and grocery shopping done :)

  5. A few daubs of yellow might brighten it a bit but well done in any case.

  6. She will love it. How thoughtful of you to zero in on one of her favorite sayings.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

  7. I like the dark colors and will have to look for and try that popcorn!

    Have a good one - K

  8. Looks great...another way to do that is to use stickers. Write out what you want it to say, paint over it and let it dry a bit, not all the way. Then you take the stickers off. My handwriting is horrible so this way is the best way for me to do things.


Thoughts, opinions, constructive criticism, it's all good to me.
I will delete all spam comments however, so don't even bother trying!
