Boys Will be Boys

Dwain and the boys LOVE whiffle ball, LOVE IT! Summer time brings lots and lots of games with anyone that shows up. Last summer Dwain decided we didn't have enough daylight to play whiffle ball, so he had a light installed on our barn to light the "field". Still yet, not good enough, the light wasn't high enough! So Dwain's buddy agreed to bring an old pole and add the light. Just check out all the equipment it took to get this all so precious light for whiffle ball... whiffle ball!!!

See the light on the barn (clearly not high enough, haha!)


ohhhhhh, be careful!!!!

This is the field, you will soon see a backstop and bases!

Jake checking out the project.

So when you come and see us, bring your tennis shoes because YOU WILL be playing... or sitting on the bleachers I expect to be built soon! :)

Comfort


Blessed by God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of ALL comfort, Who comforteth us IN ALL our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them who are in any trouble, by the comfort which we ourselves are comforted of God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Ephesians 6:10-11

For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9

Nothing to See Here

Annie and Chapel were sneaking some cheese balls, or "popcorn" as Chapel calls it.






And thought you would enjoy this beautiful but freaky picture, we thought we might be seeing a tornado forming.

My Chalkboard Woes

I bought this gorgeous chalkboard from Restoration Hardware and LOVED it! It looked perfect and was just what I wanted. I went to write on it and the chalk would slip, wouldn't even leave a mark in some places. I purchased 3 different brands of chalk... same story. I called and they told me to try liquid chalk, which you see here. The problem with that is it wouldn't completely erase (even with water). I called back and they said try writing on the back, some boards had been put together wrong, wrote on the back and it worked. They quickly sent a new one and chalk will work on it (not as good as my $10 board from Wal-Mart) however chalk scratches the board. You erase the chalk and the scratch is still there. Also, you can see the board coming off on the chalk... grrrrrr! What is going on??? Does anyone have any suggestions?

Sneak Peek - OAK - Giveaway!

I love what I get to do at Creator Designs! I want to let you in on some of it today. We have been working on a new retail line but we haven't "announced" officially yet... we are still testing it out a little so YOU are getting a sneak peek. Of course our main business is screen printing custom orders, but from time to time we like to throw retail out there. The idea came up to print "One of a Kind" shirts, pulling from the orders we are already printing. We have amazing graphic designers (we use to call them artists :)) and day after day we print INCREDIBLE stuff, usually 40+ orders a day. Our new retail line, OAK - One of a Kind, takes a trendy, unique shirt (mostly Alternative Apparel) and prints one of the designs we're doing that day. NO ONE in the world will have a shirt like it! (Now someone might have that print, but not that shirt style/color). Check out some of the brainstorming we did for the look we wanted for OAK...
Kim Scowden
wrote this amazing and perfect summary of the message we want to share through OAK...
