Our Weekend Project...

Yes - though it's on a much lighter note than my last entry - this is yet another politically related post. -- Don't worry, it will all be over soon and then we can get back to our regularly scheduled programming... whatever that may be! lol!



As I mentioned before, in a few previous posts... we've been having trouble with people vandalizing and/or stealing our campaign signs. Matter of fact, right after I wrote the last one, we left to go out to lunch/ get KB's new shoes... and we noticed that our two newest McCain/Palin signs had been ripped right off their metal stakes & stolen... >:(



So just like last time... we set out to replace the origial one(s) + add one extra. Unfortunately, being that we're not the only ones with this problem, the headquarters was all out of signs! Since B has been wanted one of the big signs anyway, we decided to shift to plan B, and make one... one that is BIG.... and one that is bold! It's was long process.. but a lot of fun!

Here's some pix of process & results...

The materials...



Getting it cleaned up...




Spray painting it blue...




Projecting the design (specifically designed for the dimensions of the board)...




So it could be traced it on, for easier painting....



Painting in the design... (B did all the bigger lettering... I did the tiny stuff.)




Putting it up...





The Finished product...


Think that'll get the point across??

(note: we had some shots that were better than the ones portrayed here... but they accidentally got erased from the computer... :sad:)

I LOVE you both. Thanks for fighting for what is right. SOOOO creative. God bless you both and may we rejoice in triumph tomorrow.

I actually noticed the changes because we go by your house all the time. TJ
