I made this wreath, yesterday! I love the mix of natural, whites, and sparkle! I can change out the pumpkins for ornaments for Christmas, too.

I painted these orange pumpkins white.

I will be listing my moss wreath in my Etsy shop tonight. 

I have a winner of my LINENS wood sing, too. 

The winner is....

Congratulations! Thanks for entering!

Happy Making,

Words on Wood : Giveaway!

I know. I know. It's been a loooong time since I have posted. I am working on being a really good blogger. Baby steps.
I have been painting words on wood a lot, lately.. I had a lull the past couple days and got to make a couple new signs. I am feeling real good with all the perfect weather going on around here and I feel like giving something away! I want to give one of my new "LINENS" sign away to a lucky follower! Details will be at the end of this post.
Before I show you my new pieces, I want to share my most popular wall art from my Etsy shop. I paint this almost everyday and it still makes me smile. It is a 2 foot square piece of wood that I hand paint and distress with the words "You are my sunshine" I love that song! I sang that to my children everyday when they were smaller. I hope they sing it to their kids, too. Did you know that the whole song is actually a sad song? Google it sometime. I just thought I would share that trivial fact with you! lol

So back to my newest signs: 

Wouldn't this look perfect in a laundry room or down a hall way?
I paint my wooden wall art just like I do my distressed furniture. 

Ok, this next one, I love for over my bed. I saw the poem on tumblr and knew I would paint it on wood one day. 

I used a technique I found on pinterest to put these letters on the wood. You can find the tutorial by Sarah at Diddle Dumpling 

Ready to win?! If you would like to win my LINENS sign, please visit my Etsy shop and tell me what your favorite item is. The winner can get it in the colors shown or pick custom colors.

I will announce the winner on Wednesday, Oct 19th.

Happy making!
