Checking In / Christmas Signs

I received an e-mail from a sweet blogging friend last week wondering where I was!  I know I have been a little MIA this last week.  I had some self-imposed deadlines on some building projects, and I’ve been spending every minute in my garage!

I thought I’d share a few of the new Christmas Signs I have been working on.  Another symptom of how busy I’ve been is that none of these have been listed in my etsy shop (ugh!)…but then, these are BIG, HEAVY signs, and I worry that no one would want to pay the accompanying shipping charges!  However, if you’re local, all of these signs went either to Ruffles & Rust in Snohomish, or to Seaworthy Home in Pacific Beach, WA.

“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” is a Pottery Barn knock-off, and it seems to be the favorite with people on my Facebook page!

The big signs are REALLY big—almost 2 feet square.  It was fun to learn a new skill in framing them in.

Red Hen Home Joy to the World

I made some smaller signs with my scraps….

This “Let it Snow” sign is my favorite of the smaller signs.

You can see the difference in sizes in the “Have Yourself a Merry little Christmas” signs.  The white one was by far the more popular one.

This one was super fun to make…it’s my version of this pinned sign.  Mine’s a little more rustic looking, I think.

I already have a “special order” for one of these signs for my sister, and I’m trying to decide which one I might need for myself!  Which one would you choose?

They are all great, Korrie! If I had to pick it would be the It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year. But, I also like the Let It Snow sign.

Most assuredly the Marshmallow Christmas sign. Then again..... I do always go to the red...... :) Better make two for yourself. The Marshmallow sign and the red sign. Yeah, I know there's more than one red sign! I can't decide between them either.....

You have been busy making the cutest signs ever! Good job, Korrie.

How long before you outgrow the garage and get a shop out in the back? As usual your signs are all excellent.

I'd probably have to keep them all if I were you! Seriously! Love the framing on them.
