Family Established Signs

I was inspired by many of the family established signs I had come across on Pinterest and decided to create my own. I had two friends getting married, and I thought this would be a great handmade with love gift.  Supplies I used included a 16x20 canvas, acrylic paints, stencils, wooden letters, and carbon paper. 

When I get around to doing one for my family, I will post a tutorial with pics. 

This was the first one I made, and I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. I hope her and her hubby are as well. 

 I had to get a little creative with the second one, as I wanted to be sure to include my friend's children in their wedding gift. I was lucky that her new last name and her children's last name both start with a S. I am still brainstorming other ideas for blended family signs as I think it is important to include the kids. 

I was thinking about possibly adding them to my Etsy shop in the near future. What are your thoughts about them?
