Each sign I make is made right at my kitchen counter!
Most days, I love being able to work from home. I have everything I need right at home. I can stop working for a little bit and go do something else, like help the kids with their homework, or take the dog outside, or start a load of laundry… And I can leave them to dry when I head to the shop to work for the day, then when I come home, they are ready for the next step.
But some days, I can’t stand the constant mess. My counter is always full of signs in multiple stages of being done. I usually put wet signs on the kitchen table to dry. Then when they are dry, I stack them on a different counter where I add twine or any other embellishments that they may need. And yet a different area of the counter where I add my label to the back. Then I have to move it all again to my front room so I have some counter space to make dinner!
Despite the days that I get crabby from the mess, I really, really love what I’m doing! It’s so fun!
