Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day!

Dear Friends!
How much I miss you!!!
I have been going around like a chicken without a head, trying to get everything together: house, family (cooking and cleaning), friends (seeing at least ONE friend a week), my new business!

I love working with furniture and finding beautiful vintage treasures, but the work that goes "behind the scenes" takes way more time then the actual hunting and painting!

Just to coordinate the Social Media and Blogging, it was a very time-consuming learning experience!
I am getting better on my post on Facebook, check me out:

Writing my Blog on Wordpress has been another challenge I do miss Blogspot. But hosting my own blog is important to me, so I will keep doing it, and hopefully you all follow me there!

I just wanted to show you my first sign, which I made thinking of Valentine's Day!

I painted ASCP Country Grey, then emperor's Silk. Distressed with a wet cloth.
I chose the words and printed them on my printer, making sure the words would fit nicely on my board. Then I traced them on top of the board, using carbon paper.
I then painted the words (2 coats) with a small brush, in Country Grey.
Here you can see "let" is waxed and "me" is not waxed yet.
I used Cece Caldwell Clear Wax. I love that wax, not as sticky and smelly as ASCP Wax.

I will be writing a new post shortly on
Please come over!
Happy Valentine's Day to you and your loved ones!
