Welcome Sign Home Decor Project, with Marcy

I am thrilled to start this series of classes using a product from Foundations Decor, a Welcome Sign to have outside your front door, on your entry table, mantle, wherever if fits in your home!  It may seem a little early to think Christmas, but this could be an amazing gift for that special someone who has everything!

In this first class we will be assembling our Welcome Sign.  It is a heavy steel base and handle that will withstand wind etc. It stands 16.5 inches high and is 9 inches wide.  The sign itself is distressed wood. The kits include self adhesive magnetic plates for changing out signs.

We will be also staring to play catch up decorating 3 months signs at a time to get this completed in a timely manner.  So for our first class we will assemble your sign and decorate April, May and January.  There is a method to my madness!

Date:  Saturday April 27
Time:  10:30 to 4 pm
Cost:  $80 (includes the welcome sign and 3 months kits as well as decorating materials.)

Baby Growth chart, with Roni A.

I feel so privileged that Roni is sharing this amazing creation with all of us.  This creation was originally designed by Yvonne Vigne of Cranbrook BC, so thanks to both of you for sharing this with all of us!

Roni and I first spoke about this I believe in the fall and felt the timing was right now to do this class.

This is a beautiful piece that hangs 5 feet tall and you would hang 12 inches from the floor to get up and over 6 feet. What a beautiful keepsake for the family while your child is growing up! Roni mentioned her family buys the newest infant a jersey of the families favorite sports team and puts the child in it beside the growth chart every year!  What a beautiful idea!  There is ample room to add pictures and notes through the years!
