  9. Joy, you certainly make the stenciling look simple, but the fact is you're just very good at it! I love all the upcycled materials you've used too. My 2016 has been a good year, and it's partly because people like you were in it to inspire me and join in the crazy conversation of the love of vintage we share. Thank you, and Happy New Year!

  16. Hi,

    I just saw your post on Creative Muster, wow I just love everything! I especially love the coffee sign. :) You have inspired me to give stenciling a try.

  17. That Fresh Eggs handpainted sign is so cute! All of your work is wonderful :) Thank you so much for joining the party at Dishing It & Digging It!

  18. You are so talented and did a marvelous job on our stenciling. Lot of time and work but definitely worth it. When talent was passed out, the went by me.

  20. I will feature that cutting board tomorrow at Home Sweet Home!

  21. A great round-up of stenciling projects in so many different styles... Thanks for sharing at Monday Social.


  22. You are so clever with your designs! I love so many, but that wire wreath completely stole my heart! Such great ideas!

    Thank you for doing my own stencils justice! :)

  23. Because Jeanne at Backyard Neighbor has no Internet for the foreseeable future, I invite you to post your “blues” at Blue Monday 2. Links only, no previews, but we’ll have a lot of fun until Jeanne can get back online. Hope to see you soon!
