An Early Christmas {Giveaway}



My husband and I used to make wood panel signs.  It was a fun thing to do together...he would cut the panel, I would paint and stencil it, and then he would distress it with an antiquing glaze. 





We had about 100 signs in a country store about an hour from us.   We made a little profit... but it was definately more of a hobby than a money maker....that's for sure!  





A few years ago we stopped making our signs.  Life got busy for us and our priorities changed.  The economy also started to go down...and fewer and fewer people were shopping in little country stores!






Here's what you can win...your choice!



The giveaway is easy!  Just leave a comment.  Giveaway will end Sunday evening.  I will draw a winner and post on Monday!

Learning new things about you all the time Kerri!

I have very few Christmas signs so either would be very much appreciated. . .however, I am very partial to red!

Jen said...

Either one. I love them both!
I think you should start an etsy store.
They are so cute and fun!

sloan said...

I love 'em both too - a lot!! ... what a fun fact about you, Kerri, I love it!!
And I think Jen's right - etsy all the way!

Karen said...

How cool Kerri! I didn't realize you guys used to do that! Do you take custom orders? I saw a sign on someone's blog that I really liked but that I've never seen in a store. Just a thought...

Anyway, I really like the white one! :)

Your signs = lucrative etsy store

Barb said...

I love your signs, I think you should continue to make them. ;) I love all the colors, would have trouble deciding which to purchase!

Jenny said...

How could you stop making these? It looks like it would be addictive! Love them, you should definitely start an Etsy shop, I agree with Jen. How fun that you and hubby did it together. I would totally buy one.

Steph S. said...

I LOVE THEM! Reminds me of my hometown - love it :) Gorgeous work - sometimes simplicity is the best. Those are just simply country and sweet :)

The tutorial on cool fonts is a work in progress... stay tuned!
