Day 12- Beach Subway Art- Beach Weekend begins!

31 days

If I had to restrict myself to only ever making one type of sign, hands down it would be beach signs!

I’ve drooled over beach signs for years and years, even collecting more than my fair share of them. And now I can make any one my heart so desires! Fortunately, my best friend is JUST as beach obsessed as I am (and so is her mom!) so I do have others to make beach signs for!

Beach signs were also my best sellers at my most recent craft fair!

I’m going to spend the weekend talking about and showing you some of my beach signs and featuring some from around blog land.

Today, I want to show you my beach subway art!

This piece of beach subway art that I made for my best friend, was actually the very first sign I ever made!

I already showed you this one on Day 3 when I went over making signs with your own stencils. I made this for my best friend, a reminder of all the beaches we have been to together in North Carolina. I also did a full post on just this sign last year when I actually made it!

Awhile later, I made this one for my living room, with beaches my husband and I have been to together. It does have a few of the same as with my best friend, since we’ve been to some together with her and her husband! You can definitely tell I’ve known my best friend longer than my husband since her sign has more beaches! Haha!

I’m looking forward to hitting some more beaches so that I can make some more beach subway art!
