Sister Post

Planning a trip to MS next week to see my baby sister, Melisa, while she’s stateside on R & R.  She’ll be moving from Bangkok, Thailand next month to Tokyo, Japan and it will be awhile before I get to see her again.  Wishing her all the best in her new position in Tokyo.  Can’t wait to see her.

This is a pic of her and her little mini-me, Savannah.  She also has two handsome boys, James and Jordan, who are pretty much out on their own, working and finishing up college.

Melisa and Savannah
Many months ago, middle sister Glenda mentioned she’d like to have a sign painted with a particular quote on it.  I know she thinks I forgot about it, but my reminder to make it has been on my To Do list in my phone all this time.  I finally got around to asking Danny to cut out the board and he helped me sand and distress it a bit.

While waiting for each coat of paint to dry, I printed out the quote on my computer, breaking it down into separate words because I couldn’t figure out how to get my printer to tile it onto just 4 pages.  That’s something I need to work on for future projects.

Anyway, this is the finished sign.  It’s about 24″ x 11″ and has hints of burgundy and brown peeking out from under the sage green paint.  I can’t decide whether or not to put a sealer on it.  I like the rustic look of the matte paint, but she may prefer a more satin finish.  Hope she likes it.

Please excuse the mess

    Sharon: You and your husband are so talented. This is a beautiful sign. I think it looks great as it is with the matte paint. Again, you are so talented! Deb

    I think it is just great and would look great in my house too. My talented niece is always creating something unusual, but always great. Must be nice to be that talented where you can do anything.

      Aunt Carolyn, look who’s talking about folks being talented. I don’t know of anything you’ve made that wasn’t beautiful. I bet you could talk me into making one of these signs for you without much effort. (wink, wink)
