I need directions…

By September 18, 2007General

t1658o house #1658!  Would that happen to be you?  I made this project for the latest special issue from Paper Crafts entitled Room to Room.  If you haven’t seen it yet, you just HAVE to get a copy!  It has 283 super easy ideas for altering/creating home decor projects all with paper crafting supplies!  I just love being able to take the supplies I normally hoard and make something that I get to look at everyday rather then just a card, which the recipient may or may not keep.  I got SEVERAL ideas from it that I plan on using to create gifts for people this Christmas.

So, back to the subject at hand, I made this project for the issue.  It’s a house number plaque to hang in a porch or sun room.  I used numbers that I thought visually balanced each other out, not even THINKING as to what in the world I would do with it after it had been photographed for the magazine!  So I want to pass it along to one of you who just HAPPENS to live at house #1658!  Leave a comment here, and IF there is more than one person who lives at #1658, I will randomly draw a name.  I’ll share who the recipient will be tomorrow!

    Well, I live at 4658. Maybe we could change the one to a four? Love the sign. It just goes with my decor. Oh so close, but maybe not close enough…

    What a fun project and little giveaway! Alas, I live about seven thousand numbers away!

    This will be fun to watch…talk about serendipity!

    Awesome! Unfortunately, that’s not my address, either… But I have my fingers crossed that you’ll continue to pass along some of your fabulous creations to faithful readers of your blog! ๐Ÿ™‚ What’s the scoop on that terrific dome frame you used?

    Hee Hee! We all have the same thoughts here … we don’t have that number but sure would love to have YOU make something for us. I would love to have a Nichole original in my home as inspiration and I see I am so not alone. This is a beautiful idea and now I think I just have to go find that issue in the store, now where are my keys and do I have a few dollars in my wallet!??? *snort*

    My address isn’t even close but think of the conversation starter if I proudly hung it in my entryway!

    Love your work!

    Well, I ordered the magazine so I could figure out how you made the darling ptac. I think they would make great gifts – could see this in my daughter’s house. Very cute.

    I might have to go check my address book. I have two of the numbers does that count?
    I think its very pretty and you’ve motivated me to think, about what I am going to do for christmas.
