Measure Twice....

Measure Twice rang through my head...

You know when something just does NOT add up.

I received an order for a sign 36" square.
A first for me.

Not hard right?....well

Picture above is the correct size.

Picture below is the result of a miscalculation...ha!

The black boards were my first cut.

They just didn't measure up...  :/

This is more like it :)

Mrs. Mary, as bad as I wanted to keep them...

I sent them on their way.

Just the right size ;)

So what did I do with the boo boo's?

I made these!

They look pretty neat next to my bed
unfortunately they are not the right color.

I'm selling the set for $40.00
let me know if you're interested :)

ps... sorry for so many "wooden" post
but it has kind of consumed my world at the moment.

  6. I love your signs. And you sure made lemonade out of the lemons with that new sign set. I want it! I just don't think I can afford to get it shipped to AK. Darn shipping costs.

  7. Your mistake sign . . . may be my favorite sign you have made yet.

    My dad was a carpenter and then a preacher . . . he was a fan of measure twice.

  10. “You can see the techniques of the knit on this style; Bandage Dress one day we will videotape the process of how our pieces are made. Herve Leger sale They weave the base and then hand-apply everything else. And our fit is really key. Oktoberfest Dress These pieces are more like sweaters than anything else—they’re not cut-and-sew, Herve Leger Dresses they’re knits—and that’s why they fit so well. People are so surprised at how well Herve Leger fits, and I tell them it’s all about how the dresses are constructed.”And finally, we dress for what we love too. For what we just can’t resist. Lubov, a former dancer, is a big fan of movement, so for her that signals the fringe-trimmed bandage dress.
