Teacher love

We Mommas, we love our kids' teachers, right? When we're not with our kids, they're the ones wiping their tears, holding their hands, and giving them the love they need throughout the day. So, we like to show them some love now and again and remind them that what they do doesn't go unnoticed.  For those occasions (teacher birthdays, teacher appreciation week, back to school welcome gifts, end of year thank-yous, or holiday goodies), consider some of these custom items I've made over the last couple of years.

Who doesn't love an apple? It's the universal image for our beloved teachers!

Or you could choose their class name.......bullfrogs, monkeys, etc.

You can't go wrong with the school mascot either!

And everyone loves a personalized name canvas....
8x 10 Bright floral teacher name canvas - $30

Hope that gives you guys some good ideas for the school year. Don't forget to show your teacher's some love! And when you do, make sure to let me know how I can help! Orders usually take 7-10 days to complete.

Until next time,

Back to school, baby!

Mmmmmmm.....what's that smell, you say? Why, it's freshly-sharpened #2 pencils, which can only mean one is back in session! Mommas everywhere are relishing the quiet, enjoying lunch with a friend (finally!), and getting their first haircut in months. Am I right, or am I right? Don't get me wrong....I love my kiddos like a bee loves honey, but I was over summer in mid-July and happy as a lark to finally have both tots in school. And what better to celebrate this momentous occasion than to decorate the front doors!

Don't these cute school buses just shout "We're back to school, baby!" Love 'em and all that they stand for.

Till next time,

Home of the brave (and burlap)

Burlap anchor with name - $35
I don't know if it's a Southern thing or what, but around these parts, we keep our American flag up all year long. And we don't just decorate for major holidays like Christmas and Easter, we decorate for all the ones in between too, no matter how small they are. Lastly, we like to get a lot of bang for our buck. So, when it comes to decorating for the fourth of July, I take advantage of the fact that it is sandwiched between two other patriotic holidays, and start around the last week of May. My favorite Americana decor consists of galvanized buckets, navy or red gingham, paper pinwheels, miniature flags, anything with stars, striped fabric, red geraniums, old-fashioned firecrackers, and of course, BURLAP! Whether you are looking for something to put on your door for the 4th or all summer long, I've got you covered.
Burlap sailboat - $35
Burlap flag star - $35 (I have one ready to pick up or ship!)

Burlap USA star burlap - $35 (I also have one of these ready to pick up or ship!)

Until next time,

School's out for summer (almost)....

How is it already May? I feel like my kids just got back from Christmas break and we're already planning for preschool graduation in a few weeks?!?  If you are like me and looking for a way to properly thank the teachers that have not only taught your children, but wiped their tears, kissed their scraped knees, and hugged their necks all year long, look no further.

Order them plain or customized and they are the perfect "thank you" for that special teacher. $35 each

Lucky me!

Celebrating St. Patrick's Day after two kids is a far cry from what it used to be, as I'm sure other moms out there would agree. But, it doesn't mean I feel any less lucky or any less of a reason to fact, even more so! So this year, I may replace my green beer with leprechaun juice and forego the rowdy bar scene for a quiet night at home with the fam, but I will still show some love for the Irish....starting with my front door!
Polka dotted shamrock burlap door hanger - $35
How will you "go green" this St. Patty's day?

Go Tigers, Go!

Can you believe it's already football season??  I know, I know, you're thinking, "But, she doesn't even like football. What does she care?" Well, to put it simply, while I don't care a lick about the game, I do, however, like lots of the things that come with it...cold beer, sinful sweets, clever chip and dip combos, lively conversation, and of course, the fun and festive door decor that is all so characteristic of this annual past-time. Last football season, I made burlap footballs for fans from Nebraska to Alabama to Ohio, but I never got a single request for my hometown University of Memphis. Well, that all changed last week and here are the results. Let me know what you think, Tigers fans!
Memphis Tigers burlap football door sign - $35

Go, Tigers, go!
