Under Construction
I was at one of my clients homes yesterday and she has a wooden plaque with the cutest saying in vinyl on it. I will be calling my friend Tiffany Bingham with Simple Inspirations Vinyl asap to have one made up for myself. The plaque read....."No, this house isn’t under construction. Children live here!”
