I don't post about my children very often because, well, they don't want me to! They're both at the age where they don't want everybody seeing everything about them. I do take pictures on their first day of school, vacations, sporting event, etc. I don't take as many as I should. I just get caught up in the moment and forget to grab the camera!
This is what they look like most of the time...laughing or being silly. The rest of the time they are fussing or picking at each other. Typical!
Lauren recently finished another season of dance and performed in the annual recital. She dances so gracefully and did really well. She's not a bit nervous to hop up on that stage. I admire her so much for that. She got a part in the local production of "Annie"! I cannot wait to see it! In addition to play rehearsals, her summer has been busy with 4-H, church camp, pageants, and a lot of time at the pool!
Carter made the freshman baseball and basketball teams. His summer will be spent either on the court or on the field! He is squeezing in a week at church camp. He gets a two week break so that's when we'll take our family vacation. He'll be turning fifteen this summer! I guess that means we'll be teaching him how to drive.
I may not get to share them as much as I'd like to, but I am one proud mom. They are growing up so fast, and I'm doing my best to enjoy every minute!

Ms. Brown is planning a nautical themed classroom for next year! I love it because I do a theme for my room every year, too. It gives me a color palette and some direction for my room decor. If not, I go kind of crazy!
Her classroom has two doors, so naturally she needed two canvases! Ms. Brown definitely had a vision for her canvases. She requested the light blue background, rope border, and ship's wheel. I was worried about all of the elements layered on top of each other, but it turned out great!

I just can't tell you all how much I love this canvas! The gray chevron and the yellow dots are soooo cute together. Everything spaced out perfectly and the whole thing came together nicely. I love it when that happens!
The border is a slightly darker shade of gray and then the lettering is in black. I really like the whimsical font choice! The black lettering is kept from being so harsh by using lots of highlighting. The whole thing is all topped off with gray ribbon.
This is going to look great in the classroom. The large 12x24 size will really pop! Thank you, Mrs. Michelle!

The pineapple canvases are popular all year round, but especially in the summer! It's okay...I love them, too!

The one with the brown ribbon was an etsy order and had already shipped out. Remember that I also take custom orders if you'd like a different color combination!

I've got this 12x12 camper canvas finished and ready to go. It's done in red and blue for a little bit of a patriotic feel. Names can be added at no extra charge!

How cute are these colorful and rustic cross signs?
I had an order for one and I made an extra! This 7x14 is ready to personalize and deliver...no waiting! The cost is $25.00. Add $5.00 if you need it shipped.
This one was sent off as a secret sister gift with a personal note included. I thought that was a great idea when you don't want them to know who sent it!

I had the coolest order placed not too long ago. It was for five 8x10's for the bedrooms in a beach house in Florida. Apparently, the whole house is themed. They wanted signs for each of the bedrooms.
There was the "Wicked Suite" for Malificent. The "Fur-Ever Suite" for 101 Dalmations. The "Wonderland Suite" for Alice in Wonderland.
There was also the "Under the Sea Suite" for The Little Mermaid. Finally, there's the "Over the Rainbow Suite" for The Wizard of Oz.
Other than the wording and the basic theme ideas, I was pretty much given the freedom to do what I wanted. I incorporated glitter into each one, but also gave them their own personality. I think they turned out so cute!
And, wouldn't you love to see this house?
