From one Michigander to another, I LOVE THIS IDEA! Great recycling project. May I have permission to use your idea to create a smaller version for the barn or would that be some kind of infringment?

Believe it or not Warner Brothers contacted me about using it after browsing my online print store! Thanks for the nice comments, everyone :) Posted: 9:04 am on April 29th
