For more than 25 years, the expert framers at Kerrville Framing have been marrying traditional and modern methods to protect prized keepsakes with custom-cut wood and glass frames. The picture preservers mount treasured tokens, such as paintings, mirrors, and needlework, on one of 3,500 molding types in myriad grades of glass or acrylic and finish jobs with any type of glaze or whipped topping. Although pricing varies depending on size and materials used, a diploma, a small piece of art, or a family photo can be framed for approximately $100. In addition to fencing in prized pieces, Kerrville can also install artwork on-site, restore art, and repair picture frames and unphotogenic family dogs.
When the staffers at Flat Rate Movers give customers a quote, they don’t just rattle off a standard cookie-cutter starting price. They give an official, guaranteed rate based off of the amount of furniture the client has, the distance they need to travel, and the staff required to handle the job. By being thorough on the front end, they can guarantee each move goes as smoothly as possible without any surprising fees tacked on at the end. This thoroughness pervades into all aspects of the business, from the sharp, clean appearance of its uniformed movers to the fast and timely transferring of all goods from one home to the next. The licensed and insured movers can also provide boxes and help with wrapping and packing, ensuring that beloved items are securely bound to prevent them from jumping truck and rolling back to their old home.

Danelle customizes every shoot, finding creative and fun ways to draw out the unique personality of each model. Portrait posers may bring multiple outfits to change up their look, whether that look be "cowboy from space" or "land-mine diffuser/babysitter."
The Cibolo Nature Center lends a lush, earthy venue for singers and storytellers to ply their pied trade in the annual all-ages Songs and Stories concert series. Families arriving before sunset can enjoy meandering boardwalks and peregrinating pathways through the Center's vibrant habitats.

This year's lineup proffers a plentitude of musical modes, including performances by rock, gospel, country, and Texas swing artists. When toe-tapping spreads throughout the limbs, make haste for the venue's movement-friendly dance floor.
