You are my Sunshine.

August 12, 2013


When we were children, my mom used to sing “You are my sunshine” to us.  It has always held a very special place in my heart, as well as my sisters’ hearts.  I knew when I wanted to make my new baby nephew a sign, and knew it should reflect mom’s love.

So here’s the sign I made:

It’s a fence post and acrylic paint.  A little jigsaw action.  And Voila!  I’m in love.  I want to paint 100 of them and share the sunshine!  What do you think?  🙂

Happy Singing,


Jigsaw Project: Marriage sign

February 4, 2013

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all doing really well.  I am doing well and really excited Valentine’s day is quickly approaching.  I can tell you it is one of my favorite holidays and I’m not really sure why.  In my normal life I don’t love pink and red and hearts, but at Valentine’s I practically go overboard on it!  I have a few crafts I made recently that are full of love and celebration so I thought they would be most appropriate for the blogs leading up to Valentine’s Day.

I was finally able to give the gift of my first jigsaw project away!  It was simple, but something for me to practice on.  My beautiful aunt re-married over the Christmas break to a wonderful man.  As a wedding gift to them, I wanted to make a sign declaring the establishment of their new family bonded by marriage.  I sketched out their name and wedding date after cutting and painting an old fence board.  It was a pretty simple process.  I wrote out the text in sharpie and then painted over to complete the look.  Check out the finished product:

I didn’t get around to sealing it with any sort of sealer, but I would definitely suggest doing that.  I also did not attach a bracket to the back because, since it is a small sign, I believe they can hang it or put it on a shelf to display it.

I have yet to make one of these for David and I, but I hope to make one soon.  I made one for Melissa and her husband when they married and used their wedding colors.  The options are endless really, just let your creativity flow!
