NEW SIGNS in my etsy shop

Put a few of my newest stencils to work and got some new signs made for my etsy shop  AND for the upcoming EVERY HUSBAND;S NIGHTMARE BAZAAR!

P1130290Retro style EAT signs.


Great reminder!

P1130302Any Grandmas out there??


LOVE this one!!!

P1130315Great Easter sign!

P1130362You KNOW you want to say it sometimes!!




Yes, I will be returning to Every Husband’s Nightmare Bazaar as a vendor; but NOT with as humongous of a set up as I used to do.  Just signs now.  The show is NEXT WEEK at the Washington county Fairgrounds in Hillsboro.

Pictures of completed signs

Here are the individual pictures of those stacks of signs I showed yesterday.  Some of each have gone to both antique malls; and are now also available in my etsy shop;

P1070675New, BIGGER ‘MEMORIES” sign.  smaller version still available too.

P1070677BIG ‘SEASIDE MEMORIES’ sign.  *(the above bigger memories sign is made using this same stencil!)

P1070684“ALWAYS KISS ME GOODNIGHT” in two styles.


Small ‘DREAM’ sign is several different sizes and colors.  (using up all my scraps of wood!)

P1070552New BIG chandelier plaque!  (my favorite!!)  Thinking that I might need to get some ‘glimmer paint’ to use for making the next batch if chandelier stencils.  Too tacky???

P1070578Smaller chandeliers.

P1070575And another small chandelier.

P1070585Bird with a CROWN in a birdcage.

P1070587Smaller shelf sitter ‘La Toilette’ signs.  (these are made of thicker wood so they will stand on their own on a shelf.  But I’ll gladly add a hanger on the back upon request, and at no charge.)

P1070595More BIGGER ‘La Toilette’ signs.  *(FUN FACT:  Bathroom signs {in ANY language} are my best letters on etsy!  Go figure?!)

P1070599And another French bathroom sign!!

P1070611I’ll be curious to see if this one sells as well as the French bathroom signs!

P1070606Guest room.

P1070616Bar sign.  Might offer a ‘personalized’ version of this sign too.

P1070632I think this is my 5th or 6th style of a PARIS sign.  Maybe I’ll offer a set that includes one of each style!

P1070638Not quite sure WHAT to do with this one.  You know I love anything with birds on it.  But it feels like this should have something written on it.  Or maybe use it for a peg rack??

rack???  Suggestions welcome.

All in a days work!

P1070537Here’s your sign!

P1070535This is one days worth of finished signs.

P1070536But don’t be TOO impressed!  I make my signs in ‘assembly line’ style.  So I sand, base-coat, paint and distress a bunch of boards all at once.  (usually when I’m in a ‘not so creative’ mood and just feel like doing ‘busy work’.  It’s very therapeutic!)  Then when I feel like cranking out the signs, all I have to do is letter them and varnish them.  THAT is the part that I got done in one day.

Will take another day for me to put hangers on them all and take pictures and measurements for etsy; and price the ones to take to the malls.

But STILL, it feels pretty good to have them all stacked up like that and when Michael asks me what I did, I can say, “here’s your sign!”  hehe
