4th of july love

I love the 4th of July.

Like really love it. Everything about it.
I love the fireworks, grilling food, enjoying the good
company of friends and family. I love being able
to celebrate being an american and all of the
freedoms we have living in this country.

So, in favor of this love for the 4th of July,
I wanted to make something that I could put in the
apartment so Mr. M and I could enjoy a little 4th of July
spirit for the next few weeks.

I found this frame at a garage sale about a month ago and
have been waiting for something to put into it. 

This is what it looked like before:

I sanded it and then painted it red, and this is the finishing project!

So I put my designing gifts and talents
 to work and made this lovely little sign that is sitting in our front room. 
I love it! I think it turned out really great! It is sitting next to this
cute little hat that I also got at that garage sale as well!

Here's what the sign looks like:

If you're interested in a copy, I'll send it to you! Just leave a comment
with your email address and I will send you the jpeg formated copy.

Can't wait to celebrate the 4th in a few weeks!!
