Back to School

It’s that time again, school for Sofia and Ella is about to start in 5 days.  Our summers go by faster and faster every year. We have a 4th grader and a 1st grader – it’s so hard to believe!

This year is a little special for me. Let me try to sum up the back story…I had the opportunity when I was younger to coach a 16 and under fast-pitch softball team. On my team was the daughter of a great family, I had the pleasure to start  my professional career with her dad.  Fast forward two years ago and to my wonderful surprise the young girl whom I coached is teaching at our daughter’s school! This year, I am so, so, SO excited she will be teaching Sofia’s 4th grade year. I have no doubt tears will be flowing come Monday morning.

With the help of Pinterest, she asked if this wall art could be made – one look at it, piece of cake!  Here is our version  – Fonts are a little different and I decided to add bling to the canvas, because really, who doesn’t LOVE bling! Not only do I love bling, but after completing this project I LOVE vinyl on canvas…it truly looks amazing…  to help seal the project, add a couple of layers of Modge Podge and you are set.  Feel free to add any comments or message me with questions.

A first for me!!


For everyone who voted and supported this contest on my behalf, THANK YOU!! I really could not have done it without you.

I came in 2nd place in the Glue Dots Pinterest Contest and will be receiving a prize pack worth at least $75.  I am so excited I can’t stand it. One of my goals for this year has been to be more active with my craft and passion. I am still getting this blog thing down and will try to be more active as it is obvious I am slacking a bit in this department. There is so much I want to do and share I need to find time to get it all done…like I have all this free time, right?

This is my first craft contest I have entered and definitely won’t be my last. Keep an eye out here on my blog for the Thank You’s I will be sending to everyone who showed me love and support. It is so much appreciated.
