She'll paint anything these days...

Just a little something to go along with the Personalized Crate Business...

I found some unfinished wooden frames at Michael's and decided to make one to match the crate I recently painted. This was a fun one...there will most likely be more frame gifts in my future.

Hand Painted

I was on a roll this weekend with the crates! I had a couple orders and I am quite happy with the outcome. The first was Fisher Price's Rainforest and the second was just a little specific...Mickey, Donald, and Goofy playing soccer in Liverpool Jerseys. Sure, why not?!

July 3rd

I've discovered the iMovie application on my Mac...I'm in LOVE!
During our trip to Point Pleasant, my good sported friends let me film mini clips of them - my goal...a silent film! Ha! I crack myself up! This is great! (Al picked the music - "Maple Leaf Rag" by Scott Joplin...well done, Al!)

Bring back the journal!

Remember in elementary school when you learned how to write? Printing first, then script? I hated script. I remember trying to get out of a writing lesson in 3rd grade after I fell and scraped my elbow on the playground. I said I needed to print because writing in script hurt my elbow. Good try, me.
I haven't journaled in an actual journal in quite some time thanks to the blog (everybody's doing it), but I just may have to start filling pages again after seeing this journal. I'm pretty sure that Chronicle Books is trying to bring back the art of writing sans the internet, and maybe improve journal sales along the way.
