I've wanted to create a General Conference door sign for a while now. Since we're coming up on our fourth year of General Conference Book Club, I'd say it's about time. Every week, women from church meet at my place to watch and discuss one talk from the most recent General Conference. You can read more about it here. So yeah, there have been different incarnations of this sign on my front door written on post-it notes before telling General Conference Book Clubbers to come right in, but now we'll have a more permanent solution.
I bought the materials for my sign before the last General Conference, but as with many projects, I just didn't get to it! I found everything (letters, trees, and plaque) at Michael's craft store...pretty cheap.
I used weldbond to glue the wood pieces onto the plaque, but you could use wood glue or glue gun...whatever. So here's our sign. All I need is for Steve to drill a hole in it so I can hang it on my door. The other side will say please knock, because I don't like bell-ringers waking up my napping baby (now 2-year old!) :) I suppose we're getting past that stage, but it would still be nice to have.
As you can see, I'm not the world's best letterer, but it was fun to make this with my little Autumn, who's so not little anymore. And truth be told, we've ALL been sick in the last week with something different. I have strep throat right now and am only blogging to get myself out of bed for more than five minutes today. Being sick is the absolute worst!!
