Easy Personalized Blog Sign {for my friend}

Huge surprise going on around blog land today…It’s my friend Jen’s birthday and
she is one of my favorite blog buddies.
She is a hoot!
You may remember her from my Christmas party.This is why I like Jen…She doesn’t care what other people think.
She does her own thing, and shines.
She loves her family, and they come first.
She’s always there for me to lean on.
She straightens Red out when Red is having doubts.

Yep, that’s her!
Jen from Four Marrs & One Venus.
Here she is with her cute family.

  Surprise Jen!!!  

Julie, from White Lights on Wednesday asked me and a few other lovely bloggers
if we would like to get together and do a special birthday post for Jen.
I love surprises, and I love Jen… so I hopped right on that band wagon.
Thanks Julie!

When I was trying to figure out what to do for Jen,
I looked around the house and thought a little.
Then I thought in the car.
I even thought in the shower, and in my sleep.
Then it came to me.
I had just finished my custom frame for our bedroom
so I found some of the beaten up scraps.
Then I engraved her and her hubbies initials in it with a screw driver.

Then I stained it just like I did here for my frame (you can find that here).

You can also see a picture of my frame here:

I knew I couldn’t send Jen a frame, but I could send her a….
wait for it….


Custom blog sign.
Are you doing the happy dance Jen?
All it took was a little paint & stencils after I polyurethaned the stain.
That’s it.
This would make a perfect sign for any occasion really.
How about a “family name sign” for your kitchen or mantel?
It’s not perfect, but I think it’s pretty cool, and from the heart.

Hope ya like it sister because it’s on it’s way to your house!  XO
