I have been wanting to make a little book nook for my daughter's room before she was even born. I had this idea of making signs that had my favorite places from books. I am not a very
good painter when it comes to little details like letters. However, I read about several ways to transfer fonts onto wood and thought I would give it a try. I think they turned out pretty close to the actual fonts and it was super easy and fun. I can also be the first to tell you if I can do it anybody can do it. :)

You are welcome Terri! I love your idea about hanging the signs under different photos. :)
Don't you just love all of the things you can make and do with Mason jars? I have been wanting Mason jar solar lights since I saw them in a catalog three years ago, but for $40 a jar
there was no way I would allow myself to buy them. I knew I needed to figure out a way to make them myself. I bought some solar lights at the dollar store and was able to come up with my own Mason jar solar lights. Please visit my blog to see all of the details.
I used 100 plastic spoons to make a sunflower for my backyard. I dug around in my closet and found a plastic tray that once was used at an office party. I brought home the lid to the coffee can from work to use as the center. I rummaged through my son's bag of pipe cleaners and dug out all the black ones and a couple of the yellow ones.
As I gave my kitchen a facelift one thing that was important to me was cleaning off my fridge!!! I have an empty wall that I dedicated to 'message center'! I took an old cork board,
covered it, screwed precut sheet metal below that, then chalkboard covered board below that. The result... a place for our papers, calendars, magnets... and a nice clean fridge! See post below, the chalkboard post is with the kitchen reveal here... http://www.ccmcafeeperspective.com/2013/05/t...
