Getting back to it...

My in-laws left this morning.  We had a really nice visit.  They are so relaxed and quiet, just my speed. :)  They spent hours every day reading books with the kids.  My daughter had grandma come into her room every morning to wake her up and start reading.  It was a really special time together. 

And now I listen to those at home in Washington talk about the beautiful weather they're having there.  My sister was doing some garden prep in their 50 degree weather and here I am thanking the Lord it's only -17 out there so that the house stays comfortably warm.  It's been between -30 and -43 here all week!

I need a new project to curb some of my homesickness.   I think I've decided on making a couple of wooden subway style signs.  After taking down the Christmas decorations, I am really missing having something over the pellet stove corner.  I'm thinking 2 long and narrow signs would fill the space.

After spending hours on Etsy browsing and drooling, I so wish I could afford to buy them custom, but alas, there are no funds for that.  This is going to be a long and albeit frustrating project, but it may just the thing to inspire me right now.  If you've tackled something similar, I would love to see your tips.  I don't have a Crickit or a projector so that makes things more complicated, but it will still be fun (I think).  Now to narrow down my choices and decide on the theme and style!
