The Spring issue of Capper’s Farmer Magazine has arrived in stores; on page 33 you’ll find an easy to make DIY Garden Sign. I was using up scrap wood, this was in the early fall shortly after we moved to Quail Grove.
My creative brain was on overload from the move and I was scrambling for ideas. But after a walk outdoors inspiration struck like lightening.
I recently gave this project away at my last Make and Take Workshop in Cooper because I’ve been trying to scale back on outdoor objects. I’m not really sure they believed me when I said this piece was going to be in a magazine, but here it is and the giveaway winner appeared pleased.
This article includes step by step instruction and the stencils mentioned in the article came from the following companies.
This magazine is one of my all-time favorites. It’s seasonal so I don’t feel rushed to read through it all at once, which means I read it from cover to cover.
They share a little history which I really love and include helpful articles that are perfect for those living a more natural country lifestyle. They’ve been around since 1893 and I love that, here we are in 2018 and their articles are informative, entertaining and helpful.
The recipes this time around look really tasty. There’s an entire section on sandwiches which is something I enjoy this time of year. It was the grilled chicken salad pita pocket on page 22 that really got my attention.
There’s an entire section on spring cleaning the easy way with homemade cleaning supplies and another one on natural insect repellents I know my Texas readers will love. For me I soak up a couple drops of peppermint oil and I’m out the door.
What I’m trying to say is this magazine is loaded with lots of good articles that complement the beautiful season of Spring. Check it out and if you feel the desire to get a little crafty checkout my project on page 33.
