The calendar told me it is May 1st today. Wow! The time is really flying by this year!

I am so excited about several new things. First, today I had the honor of meeting the Lary’s Florist crew from Friendswood. If you’ve never been there, you should stop by. they are soooooo nice & friendly, and oh my goodness, you should see how talented these awesome people are. I bow to them. They are using a few of our cute flower signs to wish their visitors a Happy Mother’s Day. Here’s a couple of pics from today:

I really hope that if you are in the market for some incredible flower bouquets or amazing gifts that you’ll stop by. They are on 518 just a tiny bit east of 2351. If you do, tell them Flamingos 2 Go sent you. 🙂 If you pass by the store & see my cute smiling flowers, please let me know what you think.

Another cool event today: I got to create an amazing new 2 ft. photo “Big Head” sign! It turned out great. Take a look…

We received a high resolution photo from the sweet mom.Here’s the cropped photo:


I had my special printer make an outdoor vinyl print for me.

Then I used my new vinyl print to make the coolest giant photo sign ever:

What do you think of my new creation?!! I hope he, his family & everyone else loves it! You can take this Big Head sign & wave it around from the bleachers during graduation, use it indoors as a fun centerpiece, and also as an autograph board. Of course, it looks great in the yard. And because I made it out of outdoor, weatherproof materials, if it gets wet, it won’t get ruined. Yippee!!!


Here it is shown in the middle of a graduation yard display:clearfalls-benpoguesign


On top of these great surprises today, I was also ale to get a photo of my Clear Falls grad display, as you see in the photo above, and of my adorable new “smart cookie” grad theme. Here’s the smart cookies:

I am so happy that they look adorable. I hope some graduates get to enjoy them.

Graduation season officially kicks off tomorrow. I have my very first graduation order on Thursday, May 2. Wow! So honored that this first order will be for a group of scholarship winners. 🙂

On top of Mother’s Day on May 12 & Graduation season kick-off, next week is also Teacher Appreciation Week. I still have a couple of adorable displays to honor your wonderful teachers.

It means so much to the teachers when they receive this special recognition. Let me know if your school wants to be the BEST in the district & show your school pride!

I almost forgot…speaking of schools & graduation, here is a 5th grade graduation I did last hear. This would be a great send-off.


It’s May 1st…lots to celebrate…time to giddy up & go, go, go!!
