Summer is officially over with the start of school which comes earlier every year...remember when we ended summer vacation on Labor Day week-end in September? In our area, almost everyone returns to the classroom this Thursday, August 4!
Emily Monahan ordered this little Bama themed sign for her door at school! Parents, teachers, staff and students can easily identify her office space with this hanging on the door. It's done on a 12 inch canvas highlighted with hounds tooth paper and ribbons. (And, Happy Birthday Emily!)
Our church, Columbus Church of Christ, is meeting this Wednesday night at 7:00 for a time of prayer for our kids and teachers going back to school. We invite you to join us...we are having an ice cream fellowship afterward but promise to be done by 8:00 p.m. so you can get the kidos home early!

Congratulations to Sarah and Kenny Caldwell! Silas arrived a healthy 9 pounds, 4 ounces! I really love the way this Subway Art highlights the birth details and since Sarah's nursery furniture is brown, I chose a brown frame for her art. To give you an idea of how the frame changes the look, here is the same art in a white frame. Remember, the wall color shows through the glass so you may want to consider that when choosing your vinyl color.
Which framed art do you prefer? Leave a comment for me!

|Congrats to Lauren Ferguson Moore!|
A friend asked what gift I was making for the next bridal shower at church...this glass etching project was already in the works! While this is nothing new for many of you crafting with etching creme, my husband was impressed...even saying he thought it was one of the "neatest" things I've made. Did he miss the glass etched Valentine jars or olive oil bottles I did for Christmas? Hmmm...perhaps it's the CASSEROLE dish that made a difference! hehe.
Anyway, I decided with a familiar last name like "Moore" that adding their first names would be helpful, especially at family gatherings or potlucks. Wouldn't this be perfect for one of those casserole themed showers where you bring the recipe, ingredients, and a dish? I definitely plan to do another version of this soon!
For those of you who have seen these before, do you prefer the name on the bottom or side of the dish? Leave a comment for me.

Hobby Lobby had the R and B hooks on sale for less than $2 each. We painted 3 dowel rods and attached balls to the ends to hang the spools of curling ribbon (one dowel rod is missing in the picture). The wire baskets hold gift cards, pens, scissors, and tissue paper. She hung it in her downstairs closet over a small bookshelf that she uses as a table to wrap.
If you don't have leftover lumber scraps, check your home building store for pegboard. It can be painted and framed with molding. There are also multiple hooks and attachments that fit in the pegboard allowing flexibility in placement of items used.
Great gift for someone who loves being organized or loves to make gift wrapping a work of art!
