Art break :)

Hey all!  I just wanted to let you know that I'm going to be taking a wee little break from making signs and custom art this month (August) I need to focus on getting my class in order, my family on a routine (my husband a job!) and giving my students my attention.  Never fear, I shall return shortly!  Thanks for your patience and understanding.  If you've ordered in the last week, I will get those done as soon as possible!

I will be here with my windows:

Saturday August 11, 2012 (9-5pm) 202 East Main (my house :) Art in the Yard sale!
Saturday September 22, 2012 (10-4) Lincoln Highway Arts Fest

Family Tree wall mural

 I was asked (a while ago) to do a family tree mural for a family that lived near by.  I have been super swamped with orders and putting my new classroom in order that I had been putting it off.  Finally this morning, I got to paint it for them.  I think it turned out pretty cool! They're going to put family photos all throughout the tree limbs.  I might just have to steal this idea!

 Here is ginormous window that I couldn't pass up.  It's HUGE. 5.5' by 4'3'' and 24 panes.  I haven't figured out what to do with it, I'm hoping for a special order! It was so big it wouldn't fit in my car so my buddy Dennis had to drop it off. Thanks Dennis!
I have an obsession with TOMS shoes. I ordered these thinking they would be a nice orange.....instead they are traffic cone neon orange.  I think I shall be returning them, I'm not ready to go back to the 80's.

It pains me to have to raise prices, but due to a high volume of sign orders and shipping costs rising, I'm going to have to.  If you ordered in the past week your price will be what I quoted you.  Prices will be different if you pick up your artwork.  As of TODAY (July 25, 2012) these will be the prices on the signs.......sorry for any inconvenience!

1. 10'' by 24'' signs $50 (that includes shipping/handling)
2. 2' by 2' thin birch wood signs, $80 (that includes shipping and handling) 
3. 12'' by 4' long sign, $85 (that includes shipping/handling)

I'd like to do as many orders as I can before school starts because once it does, I will have to slow down or I might just keel over.  Thanks for understanding!

 A 2' by 2' classroom sign for a special classroom.
 Smaller window with light purple frame and two red lovebirds in the trees.  $65
 Smaller window with green frame ($50)
 This sign will eventually have hooks on it and will hold a family's wrestling medals!
 Yep, he is.  ($40)
 Even though it's a little empty now, this will soon be filled with fingerprints from this couple's wedding.  (on canvas $45)

I hate wasting paint and this is what I came up with after I had a palette full of leftover paint.  It's funky. $50. Legs not included.

Labels make me happy: Art room sneak peek!

 I'm giving you a little sneak peek into my newly painted and cleaned and organized art room.  I've been camped out for the past few weeks working on everything from lesson plans to making sweet signs to hang up.  Every time I go in to work, I leave with 123123 more things to do.  It's beginning to come together and I am SO excited to start school.  It will be here before we know it!

In case you haven't' figured it out. I am a label nerd.  I want to know what is in the containers and I want my students to learn how to put things back where they belong.  I still haven't gotten my own children to do this, so we'll see!  

I'm doing an owl theme in the classroom. It may be a wee bit girly, but when you're surrounded by boys that's what happens! 

 Paint chip border. Best idea ever.  I'm headed to Wally World today to "borrow" some more.
There are six tables and each table will have on person who is the "floor captain" or "sink captain" Everyone will help clean up, but this person has a special job.  When the table is clean and quiet, they will get to line up first.  

I bought these lanterns at Target on the clearance rack. LOVE them.  This bulletin board will also serve as our "proud wall" to display the student's artwork! 

More to come.....lots more.

On the night you were born....

This window is for my mama. It only took me four months to FINALLY get to it.  It was for her birthday....in April.  I'm fairly certain she still loves me though.  It's going to hang above the couch in my parents living room.  

Below are some special orders for new babies, anniversaries and new classrooms! I love it!

Coffee, my soul loveth thee

This looks like just the right amount of coffee for me these days.  I've been spending my "spare" summer time in my NEW classroom (woo hoo!) organizing, cleaning, painting and dreaming up lessons for these sweet students come fall. I am SO excited.  This special coffee mixed media is headed to Nebraska.  

Special wedding order!

This sign is going in a heath room...what a great idea! 

The owls made it safely to Georgia! I had them driven down (by an awesome person) to the South.  Check out their new home and one of their sweet new owners.  Thank you B family, you guys rock!
