Thank you and Shower!

Thanks to YOU yes YOU for commenting, voting, or just being a friend! I have enjoyed all of you!!
I am almost at 300 followers! HURRAY! I want to know what you are interested in as a giveaway.
Please leave me a comment letting me know so I can decide. I thought about doing a monogrammed painting customized for you. Let me know if you would like this or something else.

May is so busy with weddings, graduations, showers, and Memorial Day. It is hard to find time for anything else. I am getting ready for my sister's Wedding Shower. It will be small and intimate. I am so happy for her and I am looking forward to celebrating her wedding!

This is us a long time ago at Palisades Park, New Jersey! An amusement park that is no longer there but is historical, it had a song about it in the 50"s. We used to go when we were small and I think it closed in the 70's. I just love her sweet face in this! She is the one on the right.

I scanned it from an old button my mom had. The picture was fading away and I just wanted to preserve it some way.  Too cute!

Now on to the project....

I made a Chalkboard arrow sign for her wedding but decided to use it for the shower too.

Draw an arrow shape on some wood.

Then cut it out with a hand saw.

sand all the edges and flat sides

Drill a hole for the ribbon to go through. If you are making one hold it with two fingers to center the weight before drilling the arrow or it will point up and down instead of horizontal.

Spray with chalkboard paint. A few coats and then use chalk all over to prime the board for writing.

I hung it on a wreath hanger and it will go outside when ready. I rubbed off some of the "T" oops!
I think this is a cute idea. Since the reception for the wedding is in the backyard, this will also be used  to direct people back there. I think I will use it for our annual Memorial Day picnic too! Lots of possibilities!

Before I forget a big thank you to Dawn at The Feathered Nest for showing the ticket sign she won on her site! Congrats Dawn!
Also thank you to Sassy Sites Type A  Banuca Birseyler for featuring my dessert tray! You are all too sweet!!!

Please check your email settings. A lot of you are no-reply emails and I can't respond back to you. I want to comment so make sure you have that fixed before you leave another one!

Have a Great Day!
