Name Plaques & Covered Letters!

So I've had these letters hanging in my boys' rooms ever since they were born...problem is, they get knocked off of the wall all the time because they have been hanging individually. I've known for a long time that I wanted to mount them on something, just hadn't found that right something. Well, about 2 months ago I found some old drawers in the trash in front of someones house and figured I could use the front of them for something so I picked them!!! Yesterday morning I was laying in my bed, sick as a dog with the flu, and it hit me! I wonder if those letters will fit on those drawers? And as you can see below, they are a perfect fit. So I took the drawers and gave them a shabby chic makeover before mounting the letters on them and there you have it, I'm so excited I won't have letters falling off the walls any more! These can be ordered for your child, they just may not turn out exactly like these being that I don't have any more of those drawers.

As for the letters, I've been wanting the word Cake in my kitchen forever since I bake and decorate them all the time but I've just not had the time. Well, again, sitting here in bed so much just seemed to give me a little bit more time to do those kinds of things that you need to be sitting anyway! I love how these turned out...I made them to match my pink and green decor. These can also be custom ordered to match any decor. (I'm sorry about the direction of a couple of the pics. I didn't take them that way but for some reason the computer messed with them?)

Sooooo, I'm just now getting around to taking any pictures of my crosses and posting them. I kinda went through a spell where I forgot to take pics of my stuff. Oops. :-) Anyway, if there is one thing I love to decorate with it is crosses! The cross is such a real part of my life and I pray that I share that with others in my journey of life. I've got them everywhere in my house and am constantly trying to think up new and creative ways to give them a fresh look. The pics below are not the only styles I make but the only pics I have for now. They can also be ordered custom!

Shabby Chic Wall Plaques

These plaques are something I started making after a trip to Canton about a year ago. I found some vintage wood that I instantly fell in love with and decided during my drive home with it that what I wanted to do was mount decorative iron on the pieces of wood. These plaques have become my most favorite item to make! I make them in all different sizes and styles, depends on the wood and iron pieces I find. They can be custom ordered and painted to match any decor!
