Tiffany and Jared Ward are expecting a boy and themed his nursery with Mississippi State Bulldogs. Go Dawgs! This gift baby tub filled with diapers, wet wipes and baby items can be used for so many things. Diapers and wet wipes next to a changing table. Tub toys in the bathroom. Books for bedtime. And, it's so cute with the little paw prints next to his name! We're anxiously waiting for Gavin's arrival!

When I saw the colors in this fabric that Janet Yates put on her classroom door, I excitedly started pulling paper with strong colors for the door sign she ordered. She LOVES purple and pink...that was a given for the background papers. The patterned blue, green, and orange papers easily created a garden of flowers. And, my Cricut cartridge had a layered flower cut just like one in the fabric that I adhered to the sides of this canvas for a little extra detail. She's special ya know. Wink, wink. Add a little bead bling to the bottom and painted basket for another layer of texture...love it!
Teachers really deserve our encouragement, appreciation, and prayers. If you have children in school, find a way to share your appreciation for their teachers this week. A little happy. A note. Something to say you've noticed how hard they work. Don't forget that high school teachers need encouragement too! If your kids are grown, acknowledge someone you know in the teaching profession or send a note to a former teacher. A little time could make a huge difference to those people who are responsible for shaping the minds of future generations.
If you choose to encourage a teacher in some way, please leave a comment here on what you did so others will find encouragement and ideas too! Have a great week!

Last week we visited our daughter and son-in-law in Charlotte, NC to celebrate her 27th birthday! It's so exciting to share birthday celebrations with your kids after they leave home!!! Packed next to the heart shaped birthday cupcakes was my sewing machine for a little curtain project in their living room.
You can see the before picture with hubby working on installation in the first photograph and the finished curtains in the next photograph. The disappearing recliner...well, she has ordered a comfy club chair and ottoman so the guys don't have to grieve the loss of their favorite chair. Wink, wink.

LOVE this little bird design for the trifle bowl...the right photograph is a wedding gift for Leah Allen. Adding her soon-to-be new last name and the wedding date on the other side personalizes her gift and promises that no one will "accidentally" take home her little bird dish by mistake. This is so adorable and credit goes to www.makeit-loveit.com for the idea.
