Colorful Cross Sign

How cute are these colorful and rustic cross signs?

I had an order for one and I made an extra!  This 7x14 is ready to personalize and waiting!  The cost is $25.00.  Add $5.00 if you need it shipped.

This one was sent off as a secret sister gift with a personal note included.  I thought that was a great idea when you don't want them to know who sent it!

Ready To Go...

I've got several canvases that would be perfect end of the year teacher gifts ready to go!  This hot pink and zebra print would be so cute on a classroom door, playroom, or a girl's room.  I can add any name, monogram, or cute saying.  Makes a great tween birthday gift, too!
11x14 - $30.00

Here's one that's a little more rustic!  This khaki canvas has cream dots with a black border and ribbon.  The cutest part are those little twine and button flower accents!  This one would also be perfect for the front door - either at school or at home!  Makes a great wedding gift, too!
11x14 - $30.00

Yellow and aqua - a beautiful color combination for spring!  This one is so bright and welcoming.  I can add a name, monogram, welcome, or any favorite saying.  This size also looks great in a wreath!
10x10 - $25.00

There are more "Ready to Ship" items in the etsy shop, and you can see them in person on Main Street in McMinnville at Et Cetera!  As always, custom orders are welcomed.  Check out the new website to see more!

The Five Suites

I had the coolest order placed not too long ago.  It was for five 8x10's for the bedrooms in a beach house in Florida.  Apparently, the whole house is themed.  They wanted signs for each of the bedrooms.

There was the "Wicked Suite" for Malificent.  The "Fur-Ever Suite" for 101 Dalmations.  The "Wonderland Suite" for Alice in Wonderland.

There was also the "Under the Sea Suite" for The Little Mermaid.  Finally, there's the "Over the Rainbow Suite" for The Wizard of Oz.

Other than the wording and the basic theme ideas, I was pretty much given the freedom to do what I wanted.  I incorporated glitter into each one, but also gave them their own personality.  I think they turned out so cute! 

And, wouldn't you love to see this house?

River or Lake?

It seems like I've been doing lots of river/lake/camp canvases lately.  I guess a lot of you are looking forward to some time out on the water!  I do enjoy a day at the  lake or kayaking the river, but I'm a beach girl!
I live this 8x10 burlap canvas with gray, black, and white and three different fonts.  It would be so cute at the lake house or houseboat.  That's what we're all there relax!

The color combination of the bright aqua and the shades of tan are so pretty on this one!  Listed are all of the things we love about river time.  It's topped off with burlap twine and a bit of distressing - perfect!

Panter Wedding Shower

Lavender, gray, and pretty!  It made a lovely color combination for a canvas, and I know it will make a beautiful wedding, too!

This was ordered to use on a table at the wedding shower, and then for the bride and groom to take home as a gift.  Great idea!

The wedding season is upon us!  If you'd like to order something for your special couple, please remember to allow time for painting.  A good 2-3 weeks before you need it is ideal for me.  Thank you!!

Kate Mason Jewelry

Jennifer Gribble is hand making the most beautiful jewelry.  She needed a sign for her first craft show!  I was so happy to paint a special one for her!

She had a business card with the name in that font and the heart/arrow design.  She wanted that on there.  I added to little gold border and the stripes.  I think it turned out great!

Thank you, Jennifer, and good luck!

Is It Summer Yet?

No, it's not summer yet, but it sure is feeling like spring around here.  It's four more days till spring break and I cannot wait!  I am just hoping for more of this sunshine next week.  Of course, it could be snowing knowing Tennessee weather!

I've been painting lots of new spring and summer designs.  Here's a few to help you get in the groove!

Pineapple, flowers, and palm trees...perfect!

I know a lot of you associate the spring and summer season with camping.  Spruce up the camper with a cute canvas!

I love the Mason jar trend!  We've always used jars - even when I was a kid - for drinking, catching bugs, and as flower vases.  I'm glad the rest of the world has caught up!

Finally...flip flops!  As soon as I get a pedicure, it is flip flop and sandal season for me!  Life really is better in flip flops!

You can shop seasonal options in the etsy shop anytime!

Oh, my goodness!  How cute is this?

My good friend, Laura Dunlap, ordered this as a baby gift for another sweet lady that goes to church with us.  She's expecting her first baby girl.  Laura sent me a pic of the nursery bedding and let me know that the walls are yellow.  I thought this aqua would really pop against that wall color.

The aqua on aqua dots and the pink on pink flowers are elements from the bedding.  The little yellow border and hot pink lettering will bring it all together.  It's kind of hard to tell, but the flowers have been glittered for a little extra sparkle!

There were some birds on the bedding, but I wanted the painting to match but not only match that.  Hopefully, it can grow with her!  I think this is a piece that little Isabella can keep in her room for a long time.
