Life seems to just whoosh by doesn’t it? When I saw this saying on Pinterest, it really made me think of how true it really does, like where has February already gone?
This weekend my daughter and her friends came over to have me teach them how to make a sign. I thought that using this saying would be perfect first sign for them to make. We easily forget sometimes in our daily grind to stop and take time to make a life, so having a little sign to remind us of this can’t hurt right?
I already had the wood leftover from another project, and the patina on it was so pretty that we left it as is.
It was a simple sign to make. I just pulled out my Silhouette machine to make the stencil on white contact paper. The boards we used where 5 1/2″ wide by 14″ long. I used the font Calisto MT and changed the size to 91.4
Here is a screen shot
And I made a short tutorial on how we made the sign
Pull off your stencil and your done! You could seal it with a sealer if you want, but it isn’t necessary. This is the one my daughter Shannon did in mustard. I distressed my letters a bit, but again that is optional. Shannon didn’t distress hers and it looks just as good.
