We recently purchased a canvas gazebo for our back patio. I REALLY wanted a candle chandelier but did not want to pay the money the big box stores and Pottery Barn were charging for candle chandeliers. Boomer and I went to a local thrift/antique/consignment store and found a brass light fixture. The owner helped rip out all the electrical parts and we flipped the light fixture. It worked perfectly. I sprayed it with Krylon black Primer and then Krylon oil rubbed bronze. I love it! I can't wait to light it for the first time!!!
In an effort to make useful teacher gifts this Spring, I worked on several clipboards for Goosie and Boomer's teachers this year. I used wrapping paper, plain clipboard, modge podge luster, and ribbon. Along with the clipboards, I made post-it note holders by using plastic 5x7 photo frames, scrapbook paper, and ribbon. Enjoy!

I am a stay-at-home mom of two beautiful children... yes, I am biased... I can be... they are mine! Oh, and a military wife, too, to an amazing husband! I was a teacher of the severely emotionally disturbed for nearly 10 years before I became a mother and made the decision to stay home. No longer having the classroom as a creative outlet, I turned to photography, cake decorating, and now bow creations. I was frustrated with some of the options available as far as the price of photography (my first love) and so I began taking photographs of my children and a few clients as well. You will see more than bows showcased on this blog and I hope you enjoy the creations and become inspired as well. And, yes, Goosie and Boomer are the nicknames of my two favorite creations!
