How To Make A Sign

Before driving to North Carolina
I wanted to make a sign.
We always say
"It's Wonderful To Be Back." 
whenever we arrive at our place in
 North Carolina.
It's a quote from Nelson De Mille's book,
The Gate House.
The character John Sutter would always
 say that whenever he ran into anyone
in town that started asking questions
about his return. 
He left America suddenly, following
scandalous events of murder and mayhem.
He sailed his boat for three years
 and then lived in London.
He returned to the Gold Coast ten years later.
 For those that haven't made their own sign. Here are the steps.
Go to Microsoft Word and click to open a blank document. 
 Choose a font from the font list or go to format and choose one.
 If you want your font really big, just type in the size in the box.
 Choose the outline in effects.
 Here's how it looks in a smaller font size.
Choosing the font you want to use is the hardest part.
Using what I had on hand, 
I found a scrap of wood and some trim in the
garage to use for my sign.
 I used some leftover stain on the board
 and sprayed the trim black
and attached it to the top. 
I save pull-tabs from my tennis ball cans too.
I like to challenge myself to see if I can
 find a usefor things that I would throw out.
(See my tennis can uses here.)
 Print it out and use tracing paper to trace the
letters onto your wood board.
I used a paint pen to paint in the letters.
Just twist to snap off the ring and nail it into 
the wood for a picture hanger.
See where we hung it HERE and visit our
place in the Smoky Mountains.
It's our condo that wants to be 
a cabin or a cottage.

Have a wonderful day!
