Robin Lane with Create-A-Latte


For my project today, I purchased this snowman sign blank from Hobby Lobby before Christmas.  The hat already had "Welcome" painted on it.  It sat blank for a long time on my craft table.

  Finally I finished making all of the gifts for my friends and relatives, and I finished the orders I had for my wine glasses.

I got out my white vinyl and cut out some snowflakes and my family name.

 I put three snowflakes by my name and had one left over.  I almost put it next to "The" but at the last minute I changed my mind!

I put it on the side of the snowman's hat.

Now I have a sign for my front door to replace my Christmas wreath!

Now, for some candy. This month we will be giving one lucky person a Becky Higgins Project Life Season's Mini Kit.

Your sign is so cute. Love the font. I am a follower.

I tried to do your hop. Number 2 has no project up. There is a December post showing. And number 7 doesn't say "comments" anywhere that I could find so I clocked on some little arrows and some comments showed. I tried to comment but it wouldn't let me type. I saw some wonderful projects. I just wish everything had worked.

Lori Apgar said...

I apologize for the blog #2 - I was not home all day and had no wifi to delete her address. She was unable to join us at the last minute. Number 7 has her comment link at the bottom of her post just past her name and date. Right now it says "11 Comments".
