Chalkin' It Up!

I have had this "thing" for chalkboards for several years...Now I am actually making my own!

Here are a few that I have made this past week....


 
This is so "me"!

This is a saying that my dad says...

And this is one that my Mammaw used to say!
 
I am new at this, so I hope that my creations only get better!  I know that you see these everywhere, but most of them are not "hand made".  These are 100% my doing, my hand!
 
Now, go create somthing!

Doing a little "catching up"!
 
Several weeks ago, I posted that I had won an awesome canvas from the very talented Christy Tomlinson.  I said that I would post it once it arrived...here is the beautiful creation.
 

Christy even signed the back of the canvas for me!  She acutally has a video posted on her blog of making this canvas.  I watched it the day it came out, but had no idea it would be on it's way to my house!


 
I am so excited to have this in my craft room!  Thank you to Christy!






I also said that I would let you know if I placed at the State Fair with my canvas...Unfortunately, I didn't place this year.  It is a bit of a disappointment, but I will just try again next year!


Now, go create something!

He's Baaaccckkk!

If you are from Texas, you know who I am speaking of!  Today, Husband and I spent the day at The State Fair of Texas.  The weather was perfect.  It was so good to see this guy back on the fair grounds.



 
 
This is what happened to him at the end of the Fair last year.  Tragic.
 


 
In the hall of state, there is a video to watch the process of bringing Big Tex back in just one year...It was a major undertaking, but it was done.  There are some differences...Not sure that I love the new version, but at least he is back. I have to say....the new boots....not liking them!  They are way too big for him!  That seems so funny to say because he is BIG.  But the boots are just not right!

Welcome Back "Big Guy"!

                                         Now, go create something and I will too!

Birthday Celebration....

Yesterday, I spent some time with two of my sweet friends.  We went to lunch and did some paper crafting! 

Carolyn and Shelby both surprised me with awesome birthday gifts...take a look!



Shelby made me this Awesome Halloween frame home decoration.  It is fabulous with lots of detail!  She knows that I am ALL about the details!  Isn't it awesome?  I know you want one!  I am proud to add this to my decorations this year!


Carolyn made me this sweet pop up gift card box!




Inside was a gift card to Michael's and a bag of M & M's....uh, yeah, those are gone!  What a sweet box and awesome gift!  I know, you want one of these too!!!

Thank you to my sweet "sister" friends for making me feel special with these handmade gifts!

Now, go do something Creative!

State Fair of Texas

I have been working on a few things for the Creative Arts Dept. for the fair this year.  I first started on this canvas and didn't like where it was going so I put it down for several months.  I picked it up again a couple of months ago and this is the result.  I really love how it turned out.  I have been wanting to submit a mixed media project for this years entry, but wasn't sure it was going to happen.  I am happy to say that it was delivered to the Fair this past weekend and now I have to wait! 

 
 
 
 
I will post the result when I find out...keeping my fingers crossed!!

Now, go be Creative!
