Dare to DIY: Thanks is For Giving

The much anticipated start to the Dare to DIY is here!


Well, you still have time.  I am just here today to share my project with you as encouragement for you to complete yours.  Let’s do this thing!

The first “dare” is to “be thankful”.  This project can be anything that reminds you to be grateful during this season of thanks.  You can do this.

I channeled my inner Onion Grove Mercantile and painted a “Thanks is For Giving” sign.  Nate hung the sign by the front door.  Bam.  Thankfulness in your face.

I really like sign painting.  It’s surprisingly relaxing.  I also like the recent time change and having to take all of my blog photos in the dark like a loser blogger that has a day job.  A day job that I am thankful for.  See, look at that sign reminding me of all that is good in my life.


I’m going to make up for the night photos with free “Thanks is For Giving” printables for all of you!

The printables are 8×10.  Click on the photos below to download.
