Creating this 4X4 inch art canvas was a special honor for me. Shanita Jones wanted something unique to give her boyfriend Hiram to welcome him home from deployment in Uganda. Living in a town with an air force base reminds me often of the sacrifices military families make to serve our country so I was eager to create something unique for them.
Her request for a scripture represents the spirituality that she and Hiram share. The canvas is wrapped in a vintage Bible page with Romans 8:28..."And we know that in all things God works for the good of those those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." The glass heart has Shanita's name cut from book pages and is filled with tiny red hearts for color. Underneath is the word "love" and a silver bling frame. Keys and a tiny crown which represents Charlotte, NC where Shanita lives are tied to the heart.
The photographs are poor...taken in a hurry so I could mail it!

If you need an album, check thrift shops in your local area. This might be the perfect music themed birthday or Valentine gift for someone you know!

|FLIP! After Christmas|

These 12X12 inch boards were the perfect size for a Christmas Subway Art design...I love the different fonts in Subway Art and this Christmas design has several of my favorites! The white framed Christmas Subway Art is a larger version of the 12 inch cut and shown in a floating frame which allows you to see the wall color behind the design. Choose your favorite Christmas words or message for a unique home decor!
We recently discovered the idea of a scripture blessing and I love the act of blessing each of your children with a scripture that guides them through life and reminds them of God's love. Most parents will recite the same verse every night at bedtime or perhaps at breakfast...or a time that works for their family. It doesn't have to be this long and should reflect your spiritual hopes for your children. This creative use of scripture is a beginning of establishing a Biblical worldview...where every life decision is based on God's truths and will for their lives. It's never too early to start!
This black glass board really provided a background for a trendy piece of art that is unique and personalized. I found them at a book store but I'm sure you can find something similar or simply use an art canvas.
