So I bought a new house - out in the woods, which is heaven to me.  I'm moving in two weeks so of course I was inspired to take on a new project.  I had seen a bear print on wood that I liked a lot but they were sold out so...why not make my own?   I connected three boards - about 10" x 48" then painted and sanded to make sure the grain and knots showed through.  My present to me for my new woodsy house.  Smiley

I loves him!  Or her!  I'm excited for you for your move! We moved to the woods about 15 months ago and it's grand.  And bear-y.

Funny you say that - I noticed the previous owner rented a dumpster that he kept down by the road.  Wink

Love it! I wish I could move to the woods! In the meantime I do enjoy the occasional camping trip. Once I saw a bear and the light was hitting it in such a way that I could see a dust cloud all around it. I nicknamed him/her "dusty butt"!
