Dare to DIY: Thanks is For Giving Prints

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” prints for all of you!

The prints are 8×10. Click the link below the prints to download.

Don’t forget to link up your “be thankful” projects right here on Monday, November 19th at 8am Central. I can’t wait to check out everyone’s DIY goodness!

Do you dare to be thankful?

  1. this dark thing is killing my photos. I think bloggers should get a weekday off so that we can take some photos in the daylight...ugh. On another note, your sign is awesome! did you use a stencil or do those letters by hand?

  3. I say this with love, but I'm reading this as 'Thanks is forgiving'

    Adorable handy work though!

  10. Love the sign! I just realized I'm going to be out of town with no interwebs access on the thankful link up day. LAME. I already had my little banner posted and all. :( Wait. I should be thankful for my vacation.

  11. Those printables are awesome! I super love the chalkboard one...my kids are a bit young for it now, but I am totally framing it in their room to remind them once they learn to read! heh...

    And I feel you on the crappy photos, I live in the North Pole (Seattle) and aside from being pitch black by 4:30, we get absolutely zero sunlight during the day. Ever. 100% cloud cover all the time. Can you tell I'm bitter? Now I'm just rambling.

    Love your sign!

  21. Looks great! I love how it sees you off and greets you right by the door. Good reminder when we're going out into the world or coming home to our nest.

  22. Cute prints! If the day job as a pharmacist doesn't work out you could always become a professional sign painter.
