I made a short trip to
last weekend to attend a
friend's graduation ceremony and to meet up with friends and relatives. One of
the meetings was with Jeanie, the sister-in- law of my sister. Jeanie and her
boyfriend, Adam, had left the Singapore U.S.
to work in
since last December. I wanted to bring them a gift and I thought something for their
apartment would be a good gift. Singapore

I have seen a chalkboard project here for a "days until" sign that I planned to make one for my home as our family love the excitement of anticipating upcoming events and holidays. I thought this would also be a perfect gift for Adam and Jeanie. With this sign, they can look forward to holidays, events, and perhaps the day that they will go home to visit family and friends.

First, I select a wood plank with the perfect length to make this sign. I measured the space allocated for both the wording and chalkboard. Then I headed straight to a sign maker near my area to order 2 sets of "days until" vinyl stickers. With the given measurement and selection of typo, the store sign maker was able to get it done for me within 15 minutes. . I didn't even need to give them a soft copy. I paid a mere RM2.50 (US$0.80) for each set of the stickers.
I wanted to start working on the project as soon as I got home from the sign maker but had to hold it back because that was a busy day. The next day, the day before my departure to
I was able to complete this project between my busy schedule o running errands
and overseeing the landscaping work at the new house. I always believe that
there are times to craft if you know how to prioritize your work. Singapore
In the evening, I wrapped the sign with other gifts I prepared for friends and relatives. I was looking forward to a short break from home and meeting up with people I care about in
