Well not exactly my own but one made especially for you. You pick the colors and the word, and I'll make it for you. The possibilities are endless.

How about your last name.

or your kid's name for their room

Perhaps you need to label your rooms like I do because I move them often!

You name it, I'll make it.

They are $40.00 each or if you just want the letters, they are $25.00

Shipping is $5.00 for just the letters or $10.00 for the framed ones.

Thank you. Janis

But I love it!!!!

I've added some Valentine goodies.

Some lacy hearts.

Some curly ribbon

The snowflakes and stars are staying up as long as there is snow on the ground.

And then there are these fun things. I made them out of one inch wide strips of paper.

They are a variation of some Christmas ones I made.

Well, I have both!

These are for Emma

They got some awesome pictures taken at the Union Station in Ogden by her good friend Brittany
(She also took our family Pictures)

So I thought I would use those plus a few other cute pictures that I had.

I love making these because I can stare at their cute faces while I try and figure out how I want to embellish them.

And as for the HOME.... I made this for my dear friend Vickie for her Birthday.

Hummm..... What shall I do next?

I'm still recovering. The kids surprised me with a party a Red Robin's.

I came around the corner and there they were waiting for me. All 21 of them.

I had no clue. Emma and Neil and kids picked me up and said it was just us.

More presents! This is a corner clamp so I can make picture frames. (I used to use a ratchet tie down)

Hailey and Aubrey used their own money to but me some of my favorite treats.

Zoe gave me a picture of her and her new baby sister.

We really had a wonderful time.

And to top it all off, little Joshua Phillips who lives down the street and is in my Primary class brought me a birthday cupcake. This is becoming a sweet tradition. His little sister Naomi's birthday is the same day as mine so he and his Dad walked down to bring me this. Thanks Josh and Naomi.

Thank you everyone who left me such nice comments and who called me and came over. I love you all!!!

She says she has just the place for them.

What's more fun than sleeping over at Grams and making crafts?
Staying up really late, eating tons of junk and making really big messes.

Since I am on this letter making kick, I thought it would be fun for the girls to be able to make their names and decorate them

I printed the outlines onto scrapbook paper for them and they cut them out and decoupaged them onto wood. Then I cut the wood out for them.

Of course we had to stop and eat.

That was Uncle Josh's favorite part.

We took a break to play a few round of Go Fish.

Here's how they turned out.

They were so proud of themselves.

I was so proud of them.

Now maybe tonight i can get some sleep!

Remember this window? Of course you do! I know that my followers (all two of you) have been waiting so patiently ever since I posted this picture in a previous post.

Well here is what I did with it.

I hung it up above my island.

I put the word "KITCHEN" in the top pane.

Caleb says it's a good thing to label my rooms so he knows where they were when he comes over. (I have a penchant for knocking down walls and moving things around.)

His friend Casey came over the other day and when he walked in he said, "I love this place. It reminds me of Willy Wonka's. Everything is always changing and it has so much going on."

I glued some clothes pins on the frame and clipped up some old valentine post cards I had

I also hung a pretty red berry wreath on it. (Note the dinosaur.I think it really helps to "finish" the whole look.)
