Show n tell and two freebies...


I had to take a break from crafting and getting ready for the show. What did I do? Make these... Not sure what you call it but I like it all the same. How about you?

I even tried my hand at a bee. Or does it look like a scary insect,No?

Y'all can so make these cause they are so much fun! just cut a 12x12 piece of thin board and staple some fabric. I printed the 5 off the computer and traced away then painted!

You know I had to play around and move it a gazillon times. Wont fit here..may need to make smaller so it can fit. Love it here!

Maybe on the wall..

Sittin' on a shelf?

Family asked why 5? Cause there are 5 of us...and cause I like the way 5 looks~

Moving on into the bath...

Hmmmm....not sure on this one. Maybe a different picture?

Ahhhh...like it here! Would you like one too? You know how I love to share so just leave me a peep and I will pick a name. Give me a hint of a picture or a number if you would like...you just never know~
Also... my sister Missy over at southernqueenbee.blogspot.com is giving away a pair of crocs if you are interested in a pair~

  2. Those are awesome!! Great idea! I love the number idea, but we're not done growing our family. So I don't know yet.

    But when you email me, telling me that I've won, I'll make sure I have a good idea. ;)

  3. WoW... I love this... I would say No.6, but we have taken my nephew in to live with us, so now we are a family of 7!! Although 44 is my favorite number and our address?? Oh the choices!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Very cute! I like it on the shelf. Hmmm...what would I pick? No 3? A crown? Too many choices! I'd take whatever though because it's cute and pretty!

  5. Susie this is too cute. I am partial to the #5 as well cause there are 5 of us too. Well really 9 if you count the two yorkies, 1 cockerspaniel and 1 black cat.

  7. I love it! My husband and I are newlyweds so the No. 2 would be a nice fit for us :)

    I have been following your blog for awhile; not sure how I initially found it, but it especially got my interest because I'm a fellow south Louisianan!:)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Love it! So simple and fresh, and it makes such a statement. You are one creative gal.

  26. Hi Susie-

    I am Laura from South Texas. I enjoy your blog because I am addicted to anything associated with Louisiana. Your signs are wonderful.

    Come see me at www.whitespraypaint.blogspot.com

  27. These would be great to line the backs of china hutches or other cabinets.

    Did you see Rhoda's corner cabinet redo? She used burlap to line the back of it and wrote words on the sections.

    I am considering lining the back of the green cabinet here at the condo. You inspire me!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am lovin' that cute little bee! Precious! I could use him in my revamped study! Great idea! I like your 5 in the bookshelf where you last placed it!

    I am itching to get outside and dig! I read your previous post, and my heart started thumping! Time to plant and play musical plants in the south! Have a wonderful day!!

    Hugs,
    Susan

    I absolutely love this!! I would love to have with 528 since that is our house number. We are currently thinking of fostering/adopting so I'm not sure how many we'll end up with having....pick me, pick me! :)

    I look at your blog everyday and dream of having my own. Not sure I could come up with the cute stuff that I find in blogland.....

  36. How fun is that!!! You come up with the best stuff! Yes, please enter me for the give away... I really like the No. 5 (we have 5 in our family too) and the bee, but I really like pineapples, so how about a pineapple?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Good Morning Miz Susie,
    I love them! How clever you are! I shouldn't even get my hopes up that a Number 4 would find it's way to my home because I never win anything but I still love entering giveaways. Especially when it's for something created by you *smiles*

    ReplyDelete
  38. Very creative and easy to make. I like #7 yep, lucky number 7.

    Have a happy day

    Kris

    ReplyDelete
  39. Too cute. I am sitting here debating. I like 4 because there are four of us but I like 1 because it would be a reminder that our family is our first priority. What do you think?

    ReplyDelete
  40. 18 is our address and would cute on our covered porch, but I like the bumble bee, or a fleur de lis, or a tea cup for my kitchen window sill. Oh the possibilites are endless, great idea!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Love it girl!!! I like 5, bc like you there are 5 of us. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Okay, you know I would absolutely love one of these!!!! Maybe with a 4 or a 6 (four kids, six of us all together...) I'll keep my fingers crossed tight.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Too cute! We are a family of 4.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love these and no the bee does not look like a scary insect! Number
    5 would also work for me!

    ReplyDelete
  45. So cute!! I am partial to the number 22--we lived in Indonesia for 4 years and that was the number on our house. I loved my time there, so I like that number.
    ~Angie~

    Smiles,
    Jen

    ReplyDelete
  51. Just another one of your great projects! I guess since I won your last giveaway I will opt out so someone else can be so lucky to get one of your creations!

    Maybe just maybe I can try to make one of these. Did you use muslin as the fabric? I think I might try a goat since I have a goat farm.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Cleaver...i think #4 is a fit for me.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm a family of 5 too!! Very cute!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I really enjoy seeing what you are up to each day...you are so creative! I would love a fluer de lis, a 4 or a letter L. Sure wish we had 5 in our family...I love the look of the 5 too!

  58. Or a bee with No. 4. And yes, your bee totally looks like a bee!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Great idea Susie! I liked it on the shelf also. I'm sure my hubby would wonder about the number also. :)

    A number 4 would be the ticket for our family.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I would love to win and the 5 would be perfect for me too,, however, what about a browning buck symbol?? Yes, we're country and a little bit redneck,, ha ha. and I have to think of the "men" in the house since I'm outnumbered now.,, cant wait to see who wins,, Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh I adore this! Love!!!! My husbands favorite number is 3.
    I am keeping my fingers crossed.

  62. I just LOVE typography. These are great! This could be like a "Where's Waldo" game! Where's the 5?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Beautiful! 5 is my daughter's lucky number - she was born on the 25th and I was born on the 15th. And since my name is Debbie I love the bee image too :-)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Susie, love it and the #9 is a good number---hubby's birthday and we are hoping for things to be 10 soon with a new sil.That would look so cool in my living room with the number done in brown with a fleur de lis. I wish you a great show. When is the show in Destrehan? I really want to try and go this year if my sis isn't busy in her shop. Big Hugs, Pat

  73. I would so get the 5.
    There are 5 of us.
    3 boys.
    One man child
    &
    Me.
    This so nice that it encompasses masculine & feminine at the same time so it's actually something I could hang & no one would b*tch about!
    LOL

    ReplyDelete
  74. So cute, Susie! No. 5 works for our family!

    ReplyDelete
  82. You are way too talented! Do you ever sleep?? Ok, so when you draw my name I'd like either a 5 for our family (3 people, 2 dogs) or a palm tree, fleur, or seahorse would be super cute too :) Will we see these popping up in your etsy store soon?

  85. Love it on the shelf with the star fish!! Very cute!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Oh, oh, oh!!! The number 11 is HUGE in our family--I would adore it in this form!!!! Oh, that would be awesome!! Seriously--my grandmother on my mom's side started it--she was born on July 11. Then my mom and I were both born in the 11th month, November. My brother was born Dec. 11. My hubby's b-day is Oct. 11...I swore I'd never have a November baby and guess what? Yup, he, too, was born in the 11th month! My brother went and married yet another November girl, then they had their son prematurely--in November!!! I found out I was pregnant on March 11...found out on 9-2 with this pregnancy (adds up to 11). 11:11 is our favorite time!! and the list goes on!!
    Anyway...pick me, pick me!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. How cute is that? I may try my hand at one. Or maybe you'll pick my name (fingers crossed)! I really really really need a big ol' fluer de lis for my bathroom.

  96. You're so creative! What a cute idea! I love your little bee! I think a bird or a No. 109 would be perfect for our entryway which is the next project on my list. :)

    ReplyDelete
  97. I wasn't going to enter because I don't ever win...but then I didn't want you to think I didn't think those were super cute and creative! (Did that even make sense?!) I think a 5 would be cute (we are that in # here also) or a crown maybe since I'm having a hard birthday coming up. But let's not talk about that!

    You are so creative Susie and always come up with the cutest things!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Hi Susie,

    I checked my Target for the shower curtain -no luck- They have two listed on ebay :) I like your new pictures. I really like the bee sooo cute and a fluer de lis would be nice too. I am really enjoying the intial plaque with my last name you did for me. You keep inspiring us. Thanks!
