Fruits of the Spirit

My children attend a private school and they are having a silent auction fund raiser. As room mom, I am in charge of creating a basket for our silent auction and also an art piece for the parents to bid on.

My daughter's teacher sent me a picture of a canvas that looks like the one I created. Not sure where she got the picture from (sorry).

I taped off the blocks with painter's tape, then my 6 year old and I got to work painting.

On Friday, I went to school and got the kids to put their handprints/fingerprints on the canvas. I spent a couple of nights this week finishing up the project.

I used vinyl for the words.

I had a pear label I bought a few months ago from the Silhouette Library and I used it to create a pear for the back of the canvas. On the pear, I listed the fruits and the name of the child that created the fruit.

I am not an artist...but I think this turned out pretty cute. What do you think???

Yes, sweetie, it did come out pretty darn cute!!!

Hi!!! Sweetie, I've really missed you, and I love that you didn't forget me as I didn't forget you and kept you in my thoughts and prayers (your visits were such a comfort).

Things are still pretty hectic, but I have a little quiet time right now and I'm using it to stop by to say hi to all my wonderful family-friends. Sorry I can't stay long but I promise to be back as soon as I can!

Love you!

Hey, sweetie! Just dropping in to check on you! Hope all's well!

Wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you, and keep you (and your precious family) in my prayers that things are well!

Love you!

Hey, sweetie!!! Dropping in to just say hi!

I was browsing and catching up on some of your cute projects I'd missed and ran across a lace-looking basket you did about a month ago. Well, I fell in LOVE with it!!! It looks like it would have been hard to cut but you said it wasn't; I think I'll have to try something like that because I really did love it!

Anyway, I'll be back!

Hugs, sweetie!
