It's Football Season...Show Your Spirit!

The weather is beautiful this week and it finally "feels" like football season! Here's a super easy craft to show your school spirit. 

I hosted an informal craft day a couple of Saturdays ago at my house with some really fun, creative friends. I had a blast crafting with Amanda from My Heart's Desire, Melony from Cleverly Creative Girl and Kennita from Random.Acts.Of.KINDness. Even though we had some healthy team rivalry going on, we still managed to make some cute door decorations. (That is Amanda above-I'm a HOG offense Ole Miss fans!)

We simply cut football shapes (except for Kennita's paws) out of inexpensive brown burlap, donned them with our school colors in acrylic craft paint, stapled them together and stuffed with plastic grocery bags.  Add some cute ribbon and you're done-easy peasy! 


Be sure and check out the other girl's posts-I think theirs turned out a lot cuter than mine.

Amanda has a great tutorial on her blog-to see it click HERE.

Art by Stacy Spangler at Scallion's Restaurant

I'm forever thankful to Rachael Crosby at Scallions Restaurant here in Little Rock for allowing me to display my artwork for the first time ever! I was so nervous about asking, but I finally got up the nerve. I have 14 pieces on display, and the most wonderful part is that almost all of them have scripture in them somewhere! I'm praying that His Word will speak to all those that see! 

 If you live in Central Arkansas, and never eaten at Scallions, you really need to pay them a visit. Not just to see my art : ), but for a great lunch experience. It's one of my all time favorite places to eat, and especially when the weather is nice because they have a great outdoor patio. It's one of those fun, girly places to go, with mouth watering cheese soup, delicious chicken salad with grapes, and raspberry ice tea!

 I know I always show you pictures of the wonderful art created by my students, but today I thought I'd take an opportunity to share some of my art that I've created over the past year. You can find all these pieces for sale at Scallions!

I also had the opportunity to create an anniversary piece for a very special couple. I was commissioned by their daughter to create a custom piece of art for them-did you know that the "traditional" gift for a 26th anniversary is an original work of art? I felt to honored to put this piece together. Their favorite place is Paris, so I incorporated favorite landmarks, with a lot of other things that have a special place in their hearts. 

I'll be resuming my art classes in September with two homeschool groups and a bunch or after school painting workshops. Hope to have some new stuff for you soon!
