Love...

Hi Everyone!  Happy Valentine's Weekend!  I hope you all have great plans for the weekend.  I have to work today and then I have projects to finish.  No great plans here but I'm really glad it's the weekend.  In honor of this lovely holiday, I thought I'd make a sign that is about Love.
 Love makes a family.  Not just DNA and blood. 
 I love this saying and this sign.
 I love the pop of red.
This sign is made like all the rest of my hand-painted signs that I've done lately.  It's made on a scrap piece of wood.  The base coat is black, then a top coat of white which gets sanded to reveal the black.  Then I hand paint the letters.  This time using both red and black paint.
 I think I'm going to send this one to my brother and his family. 
Over Christmas when the kids were bickering my brother would pull out a certain coaster that had this saying on it, show it to the kids and make them say it.  And then he'd tell them to remember it.  It got to be a kind of joke, but the kids got the point.  At one time we threatened to make each kid a sign for their room.  Maybe I need to make two more of them and send them all to my brother's address....without a note.  Think they'd get the point?  Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

  9. LOVE this...I'm also a sucker for the color combo white/red/black. When I remodel my kitchen I plan on using that color scheme and I think your board would be a wonderful addition!

    You've got a wonderful blog. Your newest follower!
