Customized 10x24 Plaque Preview. A poem written by a wife to her husband Bryan!

This was a customer that we love who ordered this plaque. She has come to us time and time again for things needed. This was suppose to be Bryans Valentine's Day Gift, but due to our computer crash's as most of you know we are just now getting files and software back up and running and all orders filled as fast as we can! I am in love with this poem not only because of the heart that shows in its writing but God's Word. These are her words to her husband.... and a true gift of the heart.

You are... a child of God, a great husband, a tremendous father, compassionate, brave, sensitive, kind, gentle, patient, faithful, loved by our family, fenerous, courageous, honorable, trustworthy, accomplished in your career, handsome, admirable, wise, accepted by God and others, esteemed and respected by peers, intelligent, greater than you believe, adored by your son, loved by your wife, child-like, redeemed, sanctified, restored, going from glory to glory.

You have... a future and a hope, a destiny adn purpose, unique talents and calling, a treasure of gifts to share with the world, and the approval of your heavenly Father.

"Whatever is true...think upon these things." -Philippians 4:8

Customized 10x24 sized Written Poem Plaque Preview

This was another example of our customized work. You write a poem or find a quote even if its a long one, we can help. This particular poem was written by a lady who loves her dogs! The poem is so cute that I plan on writing it out for you to read incase you can't read it all from the picture.

My dogs live here, they're here to stay. You don't like pets, be on your way. They share my home, my food, my space
this is their home, this is their place.
You will find dog hair on the floor, they will alert you're at the door. They may request a little pet a simple "no" will settle that.
It gripes me when I hear you say "just how is it you live this way?" They smell, the shed, they're in the way..."
WHO ASKED YOU? is all I can say...
They love me more than anyone, my voice is like the rising sun, they merely have to hear me say 'C'mon, time to go and play.
then tails wag and faces grin, they bounce and hop and make a din. They never say "no time for you", they're always there, to GO and DO.
and if I'm sad? They're by my side, and if I'm mad? they circle wide and if I laugh, they laugh with me. They understand, they always see. So once again, I say to you come visit me, but know this too...
My dogs live here, they're here to stay. You don't like pets, be on your way. They share my home, my food, my space. This is their home, this is their place...~ Author Unknown

Endless Possibilites in Vinyl {Giveaway}

Vinyl wall art is such a popular thing, especially in the blogosphere. It's amazing the kinds of things you can have printed out for you, from names to favorite quotations, to images. The possibilities are endless! That's the inspiration behind Endless Possibilites in Vinyl Lettering Design.

Whether you want a name plaque for over your door or a sign for your business, Cori and Chris Pearson, military parents of 4, can set you up with nearly anything you'd like written in vinyl letters. The choices are up to you, including fonts and colors.

I've worked with Cori in the past and was happy to set up another review and giveaway with her. I like how much her business has grown and the variety of things she now offers.

I still have the vinyl letter sets that she sent me in 2008, one with my son's name in his room, the other, a welcome sign on our back door. Cori is very personable and easy to work with, and would love to have you check out her shop.

She's also kindly offering one K&K reader
