In the nest...



Im in the Nest...well...kinda. Half of me. Does that count?
Above their head on the wall you can see my sign "open daily til 9".
Can you see it? Look closer..it's there...half of it.."BIG SMILES"
Layla asked if I could paint a sign for her and Kevin's Lettered Cottage. I of course was just thrilled at the offer. You may remember me blogging about it here

Here it is.

Now it hangs over their reading room.


You know I'm not one to toot my own horn or say hey look at me but I am just proud that I "almost" made it in the magazine...almost.

  1. I think it's okay to brag a little on ourselves on occasion.

    I will toot your horn for you cause this sign is just great.

  2. As soon as I saw the pictures on TLC I noticed that only half the sign was visible (I'm familiar with it and knew you made it.) I immediately thought that it would have been great if the photo had revealed all of the sign (and also the story behind the sign.) Still makes you famous in my world though.

  3. I saw the sign as soon as I looked at the page at Layla and Kevin's and remembered you had made it. I love that sign and it looks great even though you can only see part of it. Congrats!

  19. Susie--songrats on your ALMOST FAME. Who knows someone may see it and ask who made that BEAUTIFUL sign. I love it. Maybe when hubs is out of school--some day, I can afford to get a SUSIE sign.

  22. I definitely think it counts, it is part of the over all design of the room :) Why not toot our own horn, I know I have the same probably and even taking comments is hard for me sometimes.

    Have a blessed day!

  35. That's so cool!! I saw that sign awhile ago on their blog but didn't realize that was you that made it!?! Love it!!

  36. Susie,
    I hardly consider taking credit for something you created bragging. I also think the magazine should have featured a picture like the one you posted above. The sign defines TLC's reading/writing space. That being said, Layla and Kevin have over 3000 'official' followers (not including all the folks that visit them daily and just don't sign up as followers) and we all know who painted that sign and how much it means to them! You and your beautiful signs are all ready famous!

  37. Susie,
    I found your blog a while back and just love it!

    You are an amazingly talented lady (you deserve to be in that magazine!) and I appreciate you sharing your "secrets" with those of us who fall short in the creativity department! :-)

    Keep up the GREAT work!

  38. You are so famous!! :) Love the sign you made for them, great job!
