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!

AAAAGGGHHH! School is about to start!

School is about to start and I still have SOOOO much to do! I am doing my classroom in Dr. Seuss theme this year. This sign will be outside on my bulletin board or maybe in my room! I can't decide.

My fabulous mother-in-law found this chair at a garage sale and just in time too. Heather wanted a chair for her classroom. I will deliver it to her tomorrow!

Heather likes giraffe print, flowers, and red is her favorite color. Me, too, Heather!

These teacher name signs are web inspired! I saw this cute pencil on Laurie Cole's website and knew I had to have one. Mine aren't exactly like hers, but she has some really cute ones. Oh, and Mrs. Stanton gets one too!

This is Jake's desk to match his room and bedding. I put chalkboard paint on the top so that he could write ON the desk too! Hope he and Jenna are enjoying their new rooms in their new home.

Eleven TALENTED ladies came for the last paint party of the summer. (Alex and Ashley are not in this picture!) They had so many ideas I never would have thought of. The creativity was definitely flowing. Missed you girls that couldn't make it!

Paint party fun!

I painted a new backsplash the other day. I wanted something old and retro looking. I found the saying on a vinyl wall lettering website, and designed it with fonts I downloaded from the internet.

We had a good time Friday night, and everyone did a great job on their picture frame holder. No two were alike! Some had so much fun, they are coming back next Friday! Woo Hoo!

Michelle and and her sister, Jennifer, did a wonderful job with the paisley pattern. I am so glad Jennifer came. Can't wait to see them again.

Don't they look great? Amanda and her painting is missing because she wasn't quite finished! She is coming back next week to finish and do another one! (with alot more confidence this time!)

This high chair got a major re-do! Do you think they like the Aggies? Whoop! That burgundy paint made me want to "saw varsity's horns off"!

This is a back splash I painted for Courtney. She will attached it to the wall with industrial strength velcro. Then, she can change them out!

Mrs. Hunter's stool to match the chair I did for her a few weeks ago.

These are the samples we will be using at the painting party THIS Friday at 6:30pm. I have some openings available if you would like to come. I have 5 who want to have a party the following week. If I get 10 we will PARTAY!

SEW it's Wednesday!

I started out the summer thinking that I would sew some. Well I thought each Wednesday would be a good day to do that. Well this is my second Wednesday to sew this summer. I started off making a couple of skirts. I learned after the first skirt I made (pictured above) that you cannot go by the pattern sizes. It was a little on the SNUG side! So, on the second skirt, I cut it bigger, and it fit okay. Below is the second attempt and the end of my first Wednesday sewing!

Today I got the sewing machine out, and tried skirt number 3. I finally just cut my own pattern from an old newspaper! I am working on some for Ashley but she needs to come home for a fitting!
Onto some applique projects. I bought Lindsey some towels to take with her to college. Now she won't have to worry about someone taking her towels! (unless their initials are the same!)

The towel above is just a plain white dishtowel I bought at Walmart. This will go in Ashley's new kitchen!

Below is Karlee's pillowcase. I did one for Grace not too long ago, so I thought I'd better make one for little sister!

This is a very OLD chair Linda brought me to paint to go in her kitchen/dining room. With some cleaning, sanding, gluing, and puttying, this chair is ready to be in use! Of course it will get a new chair pad first!
AND last but not least, the Lord has blessed us with much needed rain this summer, and we got a double treat this evening with two rainbows!
