Live Your Dream

This week I went shopping and came across a sign that really spoke to me. I loved all the words it said and new I just had to have it. The only problem was that the colors did not match my house and I refuse to pay top dollar for something when I can make it for much less.
 This was the original sign and photo I took with my iPod. Please forgive my pictures as I had to take my Canon camera for service at Best Buy after it started giving me an error message. I'm glad I purchased the extended warranty and hopefully I will have a working camera before Christmas. In the meantime, I still have my point and shoot camera to work with.
On my shopping trip I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a canvas (and lots of other supplies) and came home and cut out a template with my Silhouette machine and painted the sign in colors to match my house.
My project was completed for less than a third of the store asking price and they claimed their price was half off the suggested price! Now I have a sign I like in the colors that fit my house much better. I have several gifts still to make for Christmas gifts, but this sign was something I felt I had to make right now. I think I need to be reminded daily to discover my dreams and to start living them more.
