Fearless Friday, Merry Signs

Are you feeling festive after feasting or are you resting and nesting?

Since I was lucky enough to be a guest instead of a hostess this year, I had time to get a jump start on some holiday crafts

I nabbed some left over wood scraps from our recent construction

And while we were waiting on the deck being finished, I got busy with a paint brush

Don’t these make you feel Merry Merry?  🎄

These signs were inspired by some things I found on Etsy

ho ho ho letters from Allseasonz

Use a light colored pencil to lay out the placement of letters and shapes

This snowman jar from NatalieLdesigns inspired my joyful snowman, he’s an optimistic chap, always looking up 😆

The idea for fa la la tree came from looking at Pinterest and magazines

I did a mock up first in PicMonkey, it’s a a great tool to use for design.  You can quickly move things around, and try out different colors and fonts

I’m going all black and white for Christmas in the city this year

And snowmen will be playing a big part  ⛄️

You can see these Merry signs in place during  the week of December 5 when I’ll be part of the Holiday Home Tour and Blog Hop put on by Celebrate & Decorate
