Dots& Art

Natalie Miller started teaching again this year after going to school for her master's degree in Speech (You go Girl!). She has not got to enjoy her summer like most of us... she was traveling to Nashville several times a week and studying for finals all summer. She got her room settled in at Centertown School and asked me to come help decorate. She decided she wanted a sign for her door, and with Centertown colors black and red, what else would you want :). I tried to do her sign alittle different from past polka dot signs! I think it is so cute for Nat!
I did this wall several months ago for Nat's play room and FINALLY got around to finishing the other side. Natalie and I have planned this project 50 times and something has always came up... but on our rainy day yesterday I decided to head over there and finish up. I chose some different fonts but Natalie chose this one. I think this font is so cute and my favorite. I love the huge pictures she has done for the children, and they are all around the walls and two in her bedroom! If your needing decorating ideas, hint hint it's super cute!!!
Thank You Natalie! I enjoyed Aiden and Anslee giving me pointers the whole time :).

We are all inventors,
each sailing out on a voyage of discovery,
guided each by a private chart,
of which there is no duplicate.
The world is all gates,
all opportunities.

dots and dots...

These two cutes little paintings are for some friends of Kristina Walling. I immediately asked whose the girls painting was going too, considering my sister's name is Kayla Lanae :).
She asked for dots on both Kayla's and Ethan's... I decided to do something different with Kayla's and I think it turned out cute. I used a cute little font on Ethan's because I did not want it too girly and I think it looks just right for a boy! I guess you can let me know what you think... Thank you Kristina.


Paige Todd ordered this painting, along with her Christmas Order (I wish I was that prepared :). She wanted hers to be like "The Barnes'" on my last blog... she said it was simple. I love simple. Paige I hope you like it... and I can not wait to do your other ones :).

my "little" babies...

My aunt messaged me today, and we talked on the phone and I thought of stuff I haven't got to think of. Every since Kali Alexis was born she has been my mini-me. If no one loved me... I know Kali would :). She is my pride and joy. Then came little Alex, but there is no hope for me there... the only woman in his life is his MOTHER :).
Kali started fifth grade last week-- FIFTH GRADE!! This is my little girl! Alex starts Kindergarten process tomorrow, and I can done tell Kim is going to have a hard time with this. haha... But here are some pictures I wanted to share...
*and if you asked her who she looked like.. she would say ME!! :) and i love it...
