{Spring-ify}

First off, I apologize to anyone who has sent me emails the past week, I just haven't had time to respond but will try to get to it today I promise! I even got an email from my mom asking if my hands were broken cause she hadn't heard from me in a while. :) So sorry I haven't been around much but you know how it is when life comes callin'.

I wanted to quickly share a few fun spring decor items I am displaying in my home along with my spring printables. I found this piece of wood at the flea market for $.99 and thought I would try my first painted sign.

I sanded it down with my sander and went to town on the edges for some dimension.
  I painted it with the same sample of blue paint that I used on my OJ Bottle vase.

Then I printed out the some letters in a font I liked and cut them out by hand and taped them to the painted wood and stenciled with a pencil.
 I got a little paintbrush and filled in the letters with flat white interior paint and let it dry for a day. I went back with my sander to roughen it up a bit. My only regret is the oak wood texture, pine would have been better but it still turned out quite cute.

I also updated my frame that I switch out for holidays. I added some carrots I found at Hobby Lobby a few months ago.
