But here's the thing. I don't know what to do first. I have lots of projects that I want to work on, and that I have been working on, at least in the design phase, and I don't know which one should be the inaugural project on my new machine. So I thought I'd ask you all for your opinion. What do you think?
Here are some options, but feel free to give me other ideas to further complicate my choice :)
1. Redoing this chicken sign.
I made a new sign out of pallet wood and it's sanded and ready to go. I think I'm going to do vinyl instead of a stencil, but I'm not sure what finish to give the background. Do I stain it dark and do the words in white and turquoise vinyl? Or do I stain it dark, whitewash it, and do the words in gray and turquoise? By the way, you can answer the finish question separately from the what project should I do first question.
2. This chicken mandala.
This is seriously gorgeous. And would take a seriously long time to weed (picking out all the little pieces of vinyl that I don't want to transfer to the finished project). I love this, and I'm leaning toward this being my first project. Except I don't know what to put it on. Originally, when I designed it, I was thinking I'd put it on wood and hang it in the coop somewhere (by the way, I'm kind of running out of places to put wooden signs in the coop. I guess we just need more chickens and a bigger coop. Or something like that). But it would also look really nice on a tote bag or t-shirt, I think.
3. Putting one of these chicken mamas on my water bottle.
Or something else on my water bottle (any suggestions?). The graphics wore off, and it's looking a little plain.
4. This wooden sign.
7. A football mom t-shirt.
8. Some other idea.
Let me know what you think!
Also, you might not see me for a while.
