DIY Welcome Sign

I am constantly thinking of new ideas and items I can make myself rather than buy.  The thrill of creating something on my own is my new favorite hobby.  Yes, it may take a while to complete with two kids to take care of amidst the “construction”, but it is something I really enjoy and it’s so rewarding to see the finished project made by ME!
