Here's lots more from the 4x12 sale...and there's still more to come!  I told you it was a hit!   I really do have the best customers and am thankful for each one.

Red and black dots in two different styles.  the front one is a little more funky with some dashes and a fun font.  The back one is more classic with a cursive font and red rhinestones in the dots.

I love the rustic design with distressing along the edges and a burlap hanger.

Primary dots are the go to design for elementary teachers.  I love all of the bright colors!  I added a more modern looking font and lots of glitter!

Don't forget the school nurse!  The red, white, and blue dots look great with the coordinating ribbon.

I also love the tropical colored dots.  A lot of teachers use this combination in their rooms and it always looks so cheerful.  These three also have lots of matching ribbon and!!!

Well, it's officially my last day.  I'm handing out report cards until 9:45, and then  my family is off on a little adventure!  Enjoy your summer!

My 4x12 sale was a huge success!  Lots went to teachers, but there were orders for other things, too.  Here's four striped pieces that have already been delivered.  I'm a bit behind on my blogging!

I love how they're all just a little personalities!

Miss Orr shipped out in school colors of orange and light blue.

These two went to student teachers at MTSU.

A fancy Ms. Willis in school colors of gold and maroon.

Yay!  School is almost out for summer.  Hang in there!!!

Dance Recital 2015

It's that time of the year...recital!  Recital week is always this week in May.  With everything under the sun going on at school, recital week is always like a marathon.  Run, run, run!  The daughters look gorgeous and the moms look crazy - haha!

This year my daughter, Lauren, was in four acts.  That's more than we've ever done.  Thankfully, she is big enough now to change herself and can touch up her own hair and makeup.  I can watch the show and not have to run back and forth from backstage.  Her ballet performance was to "Singing in the Rain".  She's go a small clear umbrella in her hand.  It was so sweet!

Her jazz performance was to "Ghostbusters"!  I loved it!  The crazy pink jumpsuits were just adorable!

This is my favorite shot from the "Bugle Boy" act.  She is in a performance troupe and this is their jazz routine.  It's always been one of my favorites and I love these costumes.

The performance troupe also has a ballet routine to "Part of My World".  It really is a beautifully done routine.  All of the girls look so graceful.

Another dance year in the books!

Funky Owl Painting Class

My latest adventure in painting was a Funky Owl class!  What a cute subject!  I had four girls come out and paint with me.  We had soooo much fun!  

I love all of these smiling faces and the proud mamas and daddys!  When the parents come to pick them up and get to see their accomplishment is my favorite part.

Each little owl followed the same basic outline but turned out so differently.  Each girl added their own special touches.

My daughter painted with us, too.  I forgot to take a picture of her...such is life when you are the teacher's kid!
