It's a...Wonderful Life!

Here is just one sign, of several that we make. I kept this one, for myself. I thought I would share one of them with you. We have probably made over 5000 signs in the past 5 years. I draw and cut all the stencils out myself. Most of them I did free hand....and yes, I free handed this one. We make some signs that are 60 inches long! Can you imagine shipping that. I stenciled 42 signs and got all of them done...Thank GOODNESS for being DONE! I do not much like stenciling all those signs anymore *smirk*

We did have several requests from a lady that does a Boutique style show on her property...that is what made us make some more signs. She had many disappointed customers in the past year and a half. That is when I started making my dollies full time on eBay and thus, put away the stencil brushes. We sell them very well and who knows maybe hubby will continue making them...

And here is crazy Kingfisher! He thought he would play house with Sydney's things the other day. I thought it was so cute...I just had to share.

Today I did not do much of anything. I relaxed a bit and caught up on things around the house. I needed it. And yes, I did sleep in a bit...it was much needed. I feel much better. Sydney is feeling much better too. Thank you for all the well wishes for Sydney, it means so much. She is a tough little cookie :)

Have a wonderful day. Mine is full of sunshine! Toodles, ~Tonya

I like the signs. Free hand, huh? I am good at that to, but I went to art school!

I love the kitty photo. I am so happy that Kingfisher has a good home. Funny how he was outside before.. He looks like he belongs!

Take care.

I love your sign Tonya...it would be a mess if I would do that free handed!!!

I'm happy that your Sydney is doing better!

Love your signs, Tonya ~ I'm amazed at the patience and talent to cut or laser or however you do them ... they're wunnerful , especially when they don't look like traditional perfect letters - love them when they're olde and prim and rustic and free style!

Linda, CONGRATULATIONS on your new blog! Blogs are fun and you can get lost in them.

Kingfisher is such a funny kitty cat! Thank you for the kind words on my dollies.


Pea,
Thank you for my Sydney's well wishes. She is feeling so much better now...but had me scared. Thank you for the comment on our signs. Not the best pic, I had it hung on an olde cupboard door for the picture.


Blessings,
~Tonya

Jenny, Thank you! Freehand meaning...I drew them on a stencil, cut them out and then stenciled them. They are neat to make...but time consuming.

Yes, Kingfisher belongs...he is a neat kitty. But when we put him outside, he acts as if he does not know us. On the steps he is fine, but any farther out, he asks like a wild cat. So weird.



Ivonne, Thank you so much for all of your kind words. Yes, I am quite the busy bee. Glad to be done.



Bee, You are right! When they are different...that is when they are neat! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for such kind words. :)

Blessings,
