SUYL - What We Make

As part of Kelly's Show Us Your Life Friday's,
below are some newer items that have yet to be added
to the website.

Thanks Kelly for allowing us to show our work!

The picture above shows a donor wall engraved a
few years ago.
Above are wood frames engraved for a teams'
coaches this 2011 season.
A new wedding tile made for a bride and groom recently,
as part of their wedding registry at a gift shop nearby.
An engraved wedding gift was drop-shipped
to a couple several weeks ago and they
subsequently ordered a tile
for their new home showing
their street number.
And one of my closest friends recently welcomed
a new grandson, Kaden.
I shipped the above tile to her home and now the argument
is who does this gift belong to;
the parents, or the grandparents:)

Thanks again Kelly for allowing us to show
our work links on your SUYL Series.

Have a blessed weekend,
Matthew 21:22

Very Special Events!

So very many special events this time of year
and I wanted to share some things that have
been engraved recently for some of these.

The photo below shows tiles engraved for a
Church in San Diego, California.
These will be placed on a wall outdoors very soon.
I hope to get a picture of the finished product
and if I do, I'll share it here.
Friends of ours are getting ready to celebrate
their 60th Anniversary of their local tractor business,
a wonderful legacy left by Mr. John A. Conroy.Some items were engraved for each of Mr. Conroy's
children and grandchildren, while other tiles were
engraved for the auction they will hold during the
celebration, with all proceeds being given to our local
FFA Chapter.
L. S. U. will be holding a "Cajun" celebration this weekend
for a dear friend of ours who is retiring this year,
after 34+ years of coaching.
We would love to be able to be there for the celebration
but since we can't, a sweet lady who owns a local
Baton Rouge business;
Dream Silkscreens & Varsity Sports,
will be giving this to our friend during her celebration.
There will be some BIG shoes to fill in the 3rd base
coaching box at the softball field at L. S. U.
What a wonderful career Yvette has had, she will
be missed by many on the field, but we're hoping
after retirement, she'll be able to visit more often!
For several years, I've engraved cut out wood in
the shape of the State of Texas
for the Jesse May Smoky-Eyed Barbecue Cook-Off.
This year they decided to give engraved tiles
instead, for their awards.
They give 1st-10th Place Awards in 3 meat categories,
then give other awards for miscellaneous categories.
This year for the first time they are giving a
"Grand Champion Award".
Best of luck to all who enter!
And this will be a very special Mother's Day
for our family.
Our youngest niece, who made her
public profession of faith on Sunday,
will be baptized!
My sister's granddaughter,
who is also named "Anna" will be baptized as well!
We are all so very thankful for these two young
ladies to have made such an important decision,
the BEST decision of their lives!
Such a busy time of the year and I hope to
share other 'special event' products soon.
Have a blessed week,
In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength...
The Lord longs to be gracious to you;
he rises to show you compassion.
For the Lord is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for him.
Isaiah 30:15, 18 NIV
