A friend ordered this canvas as a shower gift for a baby boy. She wanted gray stripes with red and navy blue as the accent colors. The gray stripes were easy, but I had to find a way to get the other two colors in there and have all three compliment each other.
I decided that the navy would show up best as the lettering and frame and did the red in polka dots in the background. The name is pretty long so I chose a little more delicate font that was still plenty masculine.
I think this one turned out so cute! It will look great over a crib now and a bed later!

Our friends had a new baby girl, Maggie Mae. I painted this canvas for them as a baby shower gift. The background is cream and there is a pale pink and white crown. The name is added in a beautiful cursive in chocolate brown. I topped it all off with pink sating ribbon. There's glitter added for extra sparkle!
I think this one is so pretty! Congratulations, Katie and Slayden!

Aren't these just great for a team of teacher? I can just picture all of these hanging together down a school hallway!
Ms. Modic ordered one for herself and one for each member of her teacher team in the school colors of royal blue, orange, and white. She wanted designs in the same colors but in different patterns. She specifically asked for no polka dots. I got creative and came up with lots of stripes and chevrons. I love how the different fonts compliment the different designs.
I happily offer a discount on bulk orders. Please contact me through the etsy shop to set that up!

Lauren turned 12! We celebrated with a game night birthday party and sleepover. I decorated our cabin with classic games like Candyland, Monopoly, and Scrabble. The centerpiece was a life size Candyland game that ran all trough the cabin.
Lauren is learning how to sew. She made the simple Scrabble tile pillows as party favors for each of her guests. The letters are their initials!
The Candyland game ended with a "candy bar" at the King Candy square. I had the large posters made at our local Teacher's Center to mark each one of the special characters from the game.
The best part of the night was watching my girl with her friends and family. The family stayed for food and gifts, but the friends partied on into the night (morning)!

Adorable! I love this navy blue, kelly green, and white combination. This is a great color palette for a boy's room of any age.
This is a custom etsy order based on a listing of the same design in a different color. Remember that I am happy to create any of my designs in your colors of choice. I want each one to be special, unique, and perfect for you!

I'm kind of missing the holidays. I always get in a little funk after all of the excitement is over and winter settles in. I can always look back at holiday paintings I did to make me feel better! I do a lot of snowmen, but the ones on the hot pink background are the brightest and most cheery!
This pretty, traditional "Happy Holidays" canvas is always popular. I usually do this one in greens and pinks. I had a request to do this one in red and greens. It turned out so pretty!
Let's hope for some snow days and then a quick spring!

Everybody knows cats are my favorite animal, and I love getting the chance to paint them! I was so excited to get the request to paint some "whimsical cats". I did a black one and a white one with big green eyes and little pink noses. I did some polka dots in the background and sealed the whole thing with glitter. I think I may have to paint one of these for my classroom!
I did a feather painting on a canvas block a while back with an inspirational quote. I had a request to do a teacher name version using that same feather with a pink background. I did it with two feathers to make a frame around the name. I love how it turned out!

The "aunt quote" canvases were really popular this holiday season. I've offered this design for a while, and its always been a solid seller, but not like this!
The neutral zebra print in the top photo was second only to this pretty cursive quote. The cream background with teal and brown lettering was number one!
Some chose to personalize their gift.
Whatever the reason, I'm thrilled the aunt canvases have taken off. I even happier that there are so many special aunts loving all of their nieces and nephews out there! I hope you all enjoy your artwork!
