Welcome!

Posted by laura on Mar 20 2009 | Uncategorized

Our great friends, Amy and Andy, were having some people over for dinner one night. Their daughter, who is the same age as Honey, wrote WELCOME on a piece of paper and taped it to the front door for the guests to see as they arrived. Not to be outdone, her little brother, who is the same age at Hot Wheels, wrote his own welcome sign and taped it to the door. His sign said ARTYBO!!! 

It didn’t take long for Artybo! to become a household refrain. They say it to each other when they come into the house and call it out to us when we turn up as well. Pretty soon it was clear there was only one thing to do…

  3. That’s a new effect, how was that done? bleaching or painting the non-masked parts of the doormat?

    Thanks guys! I’m glad you liked this mat – I had a great time making it. Very satisfying.

    Courtney – you guys were on our minds all day today. Don’t forget to use up all your coupons!! It was such a joy to celebrate Whitney with you guys last weekend. She’s ridiculously wonderful.

    Amy – as always, you’re too kind! I love how it came out all nice and crispy. I was sure some of the paint would leak in under the template.

    James – glad you liked it, and thanks so much for the comment! It’s always great to hear from you. It’s actually just brown enamel spray paint on a lighter colored mat. I used file folders for the template, and they were a perfect weight. Pretty dang easy!
