I took a few minutes this past holiday weekend to paint a new back door welcome sign. I use to craft quite regularly, but in the last few years' time crunch have totally ignored most of my projects. I felt this one was needed though as the door needed "something" and all my other signs are holiday/seasonal. This one will do for in the in-between holidays period. The fabric painting actually went fairly quickly - I traced the peas from a pattern book. The canvas sign is from Oriental Trading. I have about 20 more blank banners in my craft storage. Next time my niece's come over for an extended visit I think I'll put them to work on making a few more.
It's Thursday again, so here is an online link to this week's The List: Top Home & Garden Events on page 26 of today's print edition in the Washington Examiner. This time it is the Best of Fall '07 Mega-List - a Top 9 selection for events taking place in this fall season instead of the usual Top 5 events for the upcoming weekend.
