Recipe holder

This is a recipe holder I cut from 1" pine. The legs are concrete nails and the tail is a finishing nail. I made these to give to my customers. They are easy to cut out and easy to paint. Have you ever had a day where it seem like nothing was going right? You make one mistake after another? I had one of those days yesterday. I broke an item I was working on; it happened so fast I'm not sure how I broke it. Then, I picked up the can of spray sealer to spray one of these sheep. It didn't have the top on it but it was a brand that I only buy the sealer in, not any other paint or primer. Well, a couple of weeks ago I bought some grey primer in that brand. You guessed it, what I thought was clear matte finish was grey primer. I quickly wet a rag to wipe it off but it was too late. I hurried into the garage and applied some paint remover to a rag and rubbed the primer with it. Hey, whatta ya know, it did the trick. Took that primer right off of there. I love happy endings. I expect today to be a better day. I hope you have a wonderful day too.

Love your sheep Willa. I've done the grey primer instead of clear on a 4 foot custom order sign for a customer :( Marie wasn't happy! How are you feeling?

Cute sheep. I know the customers love finding "a little something extra" in their packages.
