My mom recently retired! Whoop whoop for my mama! SO stinking happy for her. My parents had a 4th of July picnic on Monday and my dad asked the family to bring something for her, something handmade, written, creative. She is a retired English Professor, so these types of sentiments are the perfect way to say, "Congrats!"
I decided to make a sign for her new "Woman Cave." A place where she keeps her most treasured items and where she can be uber-creative.
I started out with an old sign I had that I wasn't "feeling" anymore. I painted two coats of a tan color latex paint, then I painted on the words free-hand. I distressed it and polyurethaned and then added the cute, feminine rosette at the bottom...made from an old pillow sham of mine. So, the entire project was free! But, as we all know, it's the thought that counts, and I put much thought and love into this. She deserves to Relax, Entertain, Travel, Indulge, Read and Enjoy! :)
