I created this “Life Is Sweet” sign for a friend to hang in her kitchen. She wanted a sign and said that I could come up with whatever I wanted ~ my favorite kind of customer!

I knew this sign would fit her perfectly. Here I took some pictures of it hanging in my family room before I gave it back to her.

I painted the background white, the lettering black, then heavily distressed the whole thing with sandpaper.

I almost made my friend let me keep this sign ~ I really fell in love with it. So I decided I will make one for my own home and a few more for my Etsy shop.  So if you’re interested, keep your eyes peeled in the next week or so.

My shop has been woefully low in the past few weeks because I’m working on so many custom orders. Right now I’m taking only a limited amount of orders so that I can stock up my shop. So if you’re waiting for a sign, thank you for your patience! I wish there were two (or three or four) of me to keep up with all the work I have right now. And, of course, there is always the time needed to take care of my sweet babes.

Wishing you loads of relaxation and fun this weekend!
