Whew! I can finally see the light at the end of the painting project tunnel! This has been a very productive weekend. The first picture is a desk caddy from Hobby Lobby jazzed up for a graduation gift. I finished the above table and chairs Saturday. I am disappointed in my camera. The colors of the table are pink, green, white, and brown.

I wasn't sure about this glass pane until I found my pattern sheet for painting poppies! This will go inside an old window frame.

I added some bluebonnets to this soap dispenser. Almost finished with your goodies, Kristie!

Janelle purchased this window at a garage sale. It was just plain wood and she wanted it a little wild lookingt. I couldn't get the camera to take a good picture because, it looks so much better in person.

Hope Isabella likes her tile!

Okay, I am finally able to post this chair! Ms. Connie received this chair last week from some moms with children at her daycare. The paisleys on the seat have the kids' names around them on the inside, so she will always remember them! Again the picture doesn't do the colors justice.

This is Pam's desk I painted for her retirement gift. She wants to use it for a time out chair for her grandkids. We had a really nice reception for her today. She will be missed after 34 years at MCISD.

For some reason, this picture will not upload the right way!

One of the Bailey's Aggie chairs! WHOOP!

This clipboard turned out so cute! Probably because it is red (my favorite color) and has zebra stripes on it!

Added a few zebra stripes to this Mustang tile! Be looking for more projects soon! I am working on a table and chair set, window pane, flower pots, name signs, a side table, glass pane, soap bottle, and more!!! It's going to be a busy summer! I can't wait!

Winding Down Senior Year

Here are some more pictures of Lindsey and her friends at prom.

Getting ready to leave in the Ford Flex!

Jake and Lindsey

It's a party in the USA!

Some very nice and generous ladies hosted a dinner at Los Ranchos for the seniors. Lindsey had a great time.

I am so glad Jake's hair is starting to grow back!

Last night was the scholarship ceremony. Lindsey won $1800 in scholarships. Thanks Farm Bureau and the Madison County Fair Association! The students also got their NHS and Beta clubs stoles and collars.

Catching up

It's been almost a month since my last post, man, time has flown! My nephew, Kasey, was baptized on the 18th. What a thrill! It is amazing to know that we will be together in heaven someday!
The following week was prom. For a girl, this day is an all day affair. They were all ready by 4 and off to the Woodlands for dinner. Lindsey wanted Todd and me to go to prom, and since Todd was an invited school board member I took her up on it!

We celebrated Everyone Reads Day at school and Todd came and did his annual reading of Green Eggs and Ham!

Jill brought me a table to paint for her son, Jake's room. I painted the table to match his cowboy bedding. I have another one to do for daughter, Jenna.

I finally broke down and bought a new sewing machine. Sewing Lindsey's senior overalls did my old one in. I had to do a practice run on my applique skills, so Grace got a new pillow case! Karlee is next.
