Porch Welcome Sign

This week’s project was a request from my daughter to make a porch welcome sign for her front door.  She is a huge dog fan so I created a porch sign with a silhouette for each dog breed that she has.

DIY Sliding door safety decals

This week’s post is the next challenge for our international blogger’s Club (IBC).  More about IBC is at the end of this post.

Unfortunately, the photos did not turn out so well due to photographing through the glass but they will give you an idea of how it will turn out. Continue Reading →
