creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

it makes me happy!

My girl, MissLiz, made this sign for us in a shop class at her high school…not this past school year but the one before.   It has completely annoyed her that it sits propped up next to our rock fireplace…month after month, year after year….

I knew where I wanted it to go but I wanted it done right and it…well, just kept sitting in the same place…getting dusty = one annoyed teen.

We hosted a couple of Steve’s this week in one of our cabins.  They were working/volunteering each day at our church, helping with some construction that we have going on.  My job, during this time, was to feed them a ‘hearty’ breakfast and dinner {I love to feed people}.  🙂 They had seen my ‘sign’ and I mentioned how I was hopeful that some day it would be hanging out front.  The next day, after working a long, hard day, they went and bought the lumber, mixed the concrete, had out the level and by dinner time that sign was ready to hang.

I’m hopeful to get a little roof over it before winter to help protect it but it’s so sweet to see it each time I drive up my driveway.  We love it.  Thanks Steve and Steve!

In the second picture you can see how the sign is swinging.  We had such a windy day with a few forest fires not too far away.  The air became heavy with smoke but it made for a beautiful sunset that evening.
