I just mailed out my gift last Saturday. I knew when I signed up that my goal was to make as personal of a gift as possible. Then I remembered that I had pinned a latitude and longitude address sign from etsy.com and I knew that was the perfect gift! And now that I've made one from my giftee, I'll definitely be making one for myself next! I am so happy with the way it turned out! I just hope that Barbara likes it as much as I do!
I hand painted the numbers, but traced a stencil to make sure they would look extra crisp.
I wanted it to look a little weathered, so I used the dry brush technique with just a small amount of white paint.
I used a compass rose symbol that I found on Google images. I think it adds that special something.
(I blurred out some of the coordinates for her privacy)
I received my gift in the mail yesterday all the way from Jessie in Florida. She made me some pretty little bracelets! Very thoughtful! Thanks Jessie!
I really like how this one looks ombre. So cool!
Both the kiddos are loving this one!
Thanks for hosting such as awesome event Linda!!
