    Am new to your site…love it…did you make the sign about singing? The one behind the log slice? If you purchased it..where? Thanks for your help!

    I love the idea for the log slice! I am definitely going to steal that one. We cut down a ton of trees this summer, and I’ve been using parts of the logs for candle holders. I’m getting ready to change up my decor for spring and I was trying to think of another idea for the logs. This is great! Can’t wait to do it! The sign behind the log also is super cute. Great job!
