Getting Busy Again!

Just completed these 2 birthday banners to be sent to Houston tomorrow!

I painted this canvas for little Carter's bathroom. It is patterned after a shower curtain from Target. Love the squirrel!

Thanks to Robin, one of my methods students from Sam, for getting some orders from her friends!

Nashville, Names, and sNOw School!

Last month, Todd had a mechanical class near Nashville for a week. The girls and I flew up there and spent some time in the Country Music Hall of Fame and a tour of RCA Studio B. What a Thrill to sit at the piano Elvis played at Studio B!

I think I got the biggest kick out of standing in front of the Hee Haw cornfield next to clothes worn by Grandpa Jones, Archie Campbell, Stringbean, and LuLu Roman!!!
You may think I am wierd, but I still watch HeeHaw on RFD! SAAAALUUUTE!

I found the gold record of one my most remembered and favorite songs: Harper Valley PTA!

Yes, Nashville was covered in snow! It was a balmy 21 degrees when we got there!

Who could not go to Nashville and not see the Grand Ole Opry? We were in luck because Charley Pride was performing!

The last month or so has not just been all play. I have been able to squeeze in some painting too.
It's that time of year again when wedding showers are in the air!

This is my latest painting. I created one of these to put above my fireplace over the Christmas holidays and I love it! This one is for Todd's secretary, Amanda.

Even though it had begun to melt in this picture, our yard and pasture was a winter wonderland Friday morning when we woke up! So sNOw SCHOOL!(Lindsey had been out of school 3 days prior to this in Stephenville!) She did manage to come home Friday. Ashley came home too, Todd cook steaks, and we played Just Dance 2! It was a great end to a day off!

Christmas Time!

I know this is a little late, but here are some pictures from our Christmas Eve at home. We went to the Christmas Eve service at church, ate some good food, then opened presents. We snapped the picture below of Todd checking his facebook! He is just as bad as we are with Facebook!

OOOOOOHHH! Viva La Juicy!

Ashley is really happy with her 31 bag!

Putting together a vacuum can be hard work!

Christmas is Coming!

These ornaments are 4" wooden disks (no glass breaking!) and painted on both sides. They can be personalized, mongrammed, dated, or have a message put on front and back! $7 each. I have 4" square ones I am currently working on. Pictures to come!

Just finished this wooden chest for Mrs. Park. It will be in the court house for letters to soldiers, I believe.

A Touch of Fall

I have been "oooohing" and "ahhhhhing" at all the subway art on the web lately, so I decided to paint one. I used an old cabinet door I had. With the use of the overhead projector, I had this done in a couple of evenings.

These dish towels were "web inspired" as well. I found them on "Just a Girl" blog a few weeks ago. After a trip to Walmart to get a few supplies, I had Halloween dishtowels for about $5!

Bedroom Furniture

Here is the before picture of the bookcase and nightstand. And the after................

The pillow and box shown is what the bedding looks like. The little girl's room is lime green, and the brown will look good against the walls. I was able to work outside in the garage this weekend because my fantastic husband bought me a portable air conditioner for my birthday! Who needs diamonds when you can have a cool garage to work in???

Girly table set and teacher name signs

Finished Lesa's girls' table and chair set this weekend. These girls like pinks, purples, flowers, and hearts. Mom likes western, so I added a bandana print on the side.

The above and below signs were ordered by one of my former student teachers. She is teaching in Victoria this year. Hope you have a great year Jessica!
