Painting Away!

This table got a major transformation. April brought it from the junior high nurse's office and wanted it red with zebra. This poor table had a cracked drawer and must have had several layers of paint on it. I think she looks pretty good now!

I painted this stool this week for a baby shower gift.

These buckets came from Hobby Lobby. The black stripes were already on them. I just added the names, spiders, and a ghost!

I am making one more trip to Canton before Christmas. If anyone would like to order a name plaque for Christmas, please let me know this week, so I can plan how many boards to buy! Oh, the November 13th Christmas paint party is almost booked! I have about 2 more spots left. I have 8 more spots open for the November 20th party!

Some Major Happenings!

Well, I failed to check the church calendar when I was setting the paint party dates. The Women of Faith Conference is that weekend! Besides the church calendar, I didn't check my dad's hunting calendar! He and my mom will be here that weekend as well. SOOOOOOOO............I have rescheduled (with the okay from my wonderful husband) the Saturday, November 14th party to Friday the 20th. The party on the 13th is halfway full. Thanks to Cheryl, Laura, Julie, Erica, Hilary, Jill, Crystal, April, Sara, and Dana for signing up!

Party Dates Set!

After checking the calendar a couple of times and making sure nothing major is happening, I have set Friday, November 13th AND Saturday, November 14th for the Christmas Paint Party. Each night we will start at 6:30. So pick out the best date for you, and let me know. I can handle about 20 at a time, so call your friends and get ready for a good time. The above painting is what we will be painting. I was working on some orders this morning and James 1:17 kept coming to me: Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights. I kept thinking of all the gifts God has blessed me with. I grabbed a board and started working on this. Hope you like it!

Lacy I know this is WWAAYYYY overdue! I will have it for you tomorrow at school.

The Latest

One of my students gave me this for my birthday! I got so tickled and asked the class if I was the Witch of the Classroom! They all like turning the "in" and "out" when we leave and come back in!

My WONDERFUL mother-in-law supplied me with a ton of these clear ornaments, and I have begun adding color to them. The ones below are ready to be personalized or decorated. Hopefully, Monday, I can begin painting the outside. If you would like a personalized ornament with names or monograms, let me know! Patricia, let me know what color you would like your "Texas" one!

Just finished putting the sealer on Haden's stool just in time for his birthday!

Is this sign so true or what? Be looking for it in an upcoming silent auction!
