...Oh! The Places You'll Go...

...So you know how a few days ago I told you that I was working on a HUGE subway sign...
Well... here she is
THE MOTHER of all SUBWAY signs...
{The Girl is almost 5 feet tall...
I know that because I am 5' tall. Sad ...I know!}



...Now you may wonder WHAT is UP with all the places.
For your info we have moved 13 times in 13 years
of  happy marriage.
Our journey began in the heart of my
beautiful Madrid, Spain.
{If you could hear me speak...
you would hear my Spaniard Accent}


We say in Spain that from Madrid to Heaven...
Well, I think I was born and raised in the closest place to heaven..
My forever treasured
Lanzarote, Canary Islands.


...and talking about heaven reminds me of  the
"heavenly burgers and fry sauce"
at Burger Supreme in PROVO...
We ♥ you UTAH!
{Provo  is where the love of my life is from too.
HECK yeah, I married a MORMON BOY from Provo, UT  
…and yes he wears shorts in the middle of the Winter... ;)
LOOOOOVE him!}



California... where are you?
I have missed your SUNSHINE a LOT during this last year...
By the way there is this restaurant in Palmdale called El Torito...
Holly "Mole" Guacamole... have you ever been there?

Santa Cocina!
You can see... this girl here loves to eat!


And the 97089 postal code is where we are know...
Do you know where that is?
This sign will be displayed in the entrance of my home...

I will show you sometime later the makeover.If yo want to see a mini tutorial of how I made the sign click here.
Hasta Luego!

{......}




I party at...

36th Avenue
...my link is open from Wednesday 6:00 pm until Saturday 11:59pm
{Pacific Time Zone}

This is amazing, looks fantastic, and I just love how it tells the story of all your house moves! The stamp effects are wonderful, great subway art.

Wow! This is the best subway art that I have seen!!! I love the postal code and Madrid stamp effects - it adds so much more!

I LOVE it! But I gotta ask... how did you do the lettering? Using decals as stencils? Is this on fabric or board? Crazy awesome design!

Shared it on FJI Facebook for SNs 84. :)

what a great idea. I've moved 19 times in the past 35 years. All in the US though.

I moved twice in 8 months and I thought that was rough! Oh well, I'm much older than you too. :-)

This is totally fabulous!! I've never seen a subway art so unique ~ LOVE it. You are very talented...that's for sure. I can only imagine how wonderful Spain must be to live. Lucky you!

So glad to have found your blog tonight.

hope this doesn't post twice...i don't know what happened.

love this, the way you changed it up with zip codes and the stamped look. about a month ago we got back from tenerife and southern spain, so i like this even more. didn't do more than fly into madrid..but that means we'll just have to go back!

I served a mission to Portugal--I'd love to go back, and visit Spain too!

This is a fantastic project--thanks for sharing!

this is awesome! you have lived in so many wonderful places and the board is such a cool way to show it off!

 
At June 5, 2011 at 9:15 PM , Blogger Reba said...

Fabulous! I love it. We'd only have one place on our sign - Houston. But it would be cool to put all the places in Houston that we've lived, worked, and love. Hmmm...it looks too hard for me, but you did a GREAT job!

I love your sign! My husband and I just moved back from the U.S. after spending three years in Spain. I miss the Spanish accent...it's beautiful! I feel inspired to do something similar in our new house here. Gracias!
