Peace Out {or not}

So I had grand plans for this tutorial.
But “this tutorial” had other plans for me.

Sometimes I receive “craft visions”, if you will.
And as I played at the park with Baby W and he stumbled upon a fabulous pile of beach wood,I thought:

I have just the craft for these treasures.

So I busted out the glue gun and made an afternoon of it.
I was so pleased with my end result.
I even took a bajillion pictures of my new project.

Then…the hubby got home,
and casually asked:
What inspired you to make a Mercedes Benz logo?

Don’t be silly hun, that’s a peace sign, I assured him.

And then I glanced over,
and much to my surprise,
the hubby was right.
{which means I was wrong}

Ugh, I hate when that happens.


So this means I will be adding the missing line to my peace sign and providing you with this tutorial at a future date–unless some of you were anxious to sport the Mercedes logo in your decor theme.

Peace Out yo!

    LOL – that is too funny! Although I wouldn't have pegged it as a Mercedes Benz logo either. I didn't even notice the other line missing! I think it's a nice job – can't wait to see the tutorial!

    Haha, I think we've all been there before. Have you ever seen the Craft Fail blog? It's fun to remember that we all have craft mess-ups occasionally (or not so occasionally, as the case may be!)

    Super cute and hilarious at the same time! If we had a Mercedes then I'd totally rock this in our house! P.s. Today i saw two Mercedes cars in front of me and thought of your "mess up" peace sign and had a great chuckle! Love drift wood!
