Monster Sign


I'm back!! I've been super busy this past two  weeks and my hubby has been hogging the computer so I have not been able to post much of anything. What have I been doing? Well I went to a scrapbooking weekend with a group of wonderful women. I got ten layouts done! I am about six months behind on my little monster book scrapbook. I also hurt my hips because I was sitting the whole time I was there. My wonderful friend Erica came over and fixed me up and now I am good as new!


As you all might now by know I love Ikea and I found a white panel for only $5 in there clearance section. The first thing that came to mind was that this would be a wonderful sign. I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased wooden letters to spell out my son's nickname. I spray painted the letters in white and the board green. Then I used gorilla glue to attach the letters.


I wanted the sign to have more function so I got clamps at home depot and tide blue yarn around them.


I used an old jar of spaghetti sauce and tightened the clamp around the neck of the jar and glued to the panel. Now I can place keys, crayon or anything my little monster might want.


I also purchase little doggy hangers to hold sweaters or bags of toys.


Thank you for joining me!

Till Later.
