What I'm Loving Wednesday

This is my first shot at “What I’m Loving Wednesday”…I’m so stinkin’ excited!! I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, but just haven’t made myself do it. There are sooooo many things that I love, that’s it probably for the best that I limit these entries to 5; but don’t be surprised if more than that sneak in here occasionally.

1.   My new 31 Bag!!!!!! The Organizing Utility Tote in Circle Spiral pattern!! Imagine it with a bright yellow E smack dab in the middle! I love all the pockets..all 7 of them! And, it’s so bright and cheerful! Love this for Summer!!

2.   I love that I finally got a couple things done at work that I’ve not had time to do in past month. Don’t you just love accomplishment? I do.

3.   I LOVE that it’s almost the 4th of July weekend. This is one of my favorite holidays for multiple reasons….lake trip, traditional cookout with wonderful friends, kids patriotic parade around the town square, another cookout, outdoor games & fireworks! LOVE me some sweet Summertime! (and a couple days off work ain't bad either)

4.   I’m in love with this burlap wreath…and determined to whip one up when I catch a breath.

I could so do one of these!!
5.   Finally, I love that Kayla’s wedding is getting close….close enough that we’re starting to make appointments for hair and makeup and nails and all that girlie fun stuff. I’m also excited for our dresses to come in! Those are going to be fun!! And you should see the emails that are going back and forth....that's what the MOH is for!

Wow...we look so young in this one. I refuse to believe I look old now,
but this was definitely a few years back.

What are you loving on this Wednesday? Let me know!

Scroll down a little and look to your right....check out that "Orders to Fill" list....then, come right back!


I NEVER imagined when I started these shenanigans almost a year ago that I would already have Christmas orders piling up in JUNE!!! Thank you all SOOOOOO much for all your support, interest and sweet comments of encouragement! I can't wait to see what's in store next!!

I've had several Wedding orders lately, so it must be the season!! This was was ordered by Elizabeth as a gift for a co-worker. They also used it at the shower they hosted last week. You'll see that one at the very bottom.

Love me some black, white & turquoise together!!

Welcome, Summer!

It's been a week or so since I last posted pictures of what I've been doing. Just so you know, I have been painting ALOT...and I've got several orders stored up to share with you!

We'll start good friend, Lee Stiles got hitched over the weekend! I am so proud of him and the man he's become. I know he and Brittany will have a great life together. The storms passed just in time for a beautiful outdoor wedding at the bride's parents' house. It was a perfect Tennessee night!!

This is what I made for the newlyweds....

Best wishes Lee & Brittany Stiles!

 I'll have more to share with you in the upcoming weeks, but in the meantime, I've got wedding festivities and MOH duties calling for my friend Kayla's wedding coming up in August. Throw in a few birthday parties, a golf tournament, WORK, maybe a vacation (emphasis on the maybe), and some other exciting things of which I can't speak of just yet...and you've got yourself a typical Summer.

Stay cool!

Well...not really...only in canvas are these twins. Bummer, huh? But these two babies are both due within weeks of each other and both babies first names start with "C" and middle names start with "D". Coincidence?!?!

My sister & her MIL ordered this one...obviously for Miss Callie Danielle...I'm quite partial to the Danielle part since I'm a Danielle too. : )  

It was difficult to decide on what colors to use because I personally did not know the people receiving this canvas or know what colors they were doing their nursery in, so I figured it's a girl, surely I can't go wrong in using pinks, right? Hope so!

The boy version of this design was a tad easier because I did know the people getting it and did my research first to find out what colors they were going with.

ORANGE BROWN AND BLUE!!!!!! How FUN is that?!!

I'm so excited for Josh & Megan!!! They're an awesome couple
and will make GREAT parents to this little boy!!

Didn't these turn in just sooo stinkin' cute!! I can't stand it!

Who knows maybe Carter & Callie will find their way back to each other one day....just sayin'. Has a cute ring to it doesn't it? "Carter & Callie". Precious!!

Best Wishes to the Swangers & Geren families on your upcoming additions!!!!
