Laundry and Lane

One of my favorite designs...the laundry canvas!  The khaki, cream, and chocolate brown are just perfect together.  This 10x20 custom etsy order shipped out last week.

This 8x24 birth announcement canvas is actually three shades of brown.  The stripes in the background are khaki and white.  The edging is a medium brown.  The lettering on the name and in the box is in a deep chocolate brown.

You can see the difference in tones a little better here.  I love the idea of a nursery in these colors - so pretty!

A Little Silver...

Oh, how I love this quote!  It's just perfect for weddings and anniversaries.

This 11x14 features a white background, black lettering and ribbon, and silver metallic accents.  There's also silver glitter brushed lightly over the metallic for added sparkle.

This classic piece was ordered by my friend and coworker, Dana Grissom.  She had it shipped to relatives who live out of town.  Canvases are light weight and durable - perfect for shipping!

Here's another 11x14 in a classic design.  This one is for another friend and local beautician.  Jennifer has opened her own area in Salon Suites and needed a sign for her door.  Very pretty!

This little 5x5 was an etsy order that shipped out a while back.  I really like the fancy silver frame.  It's just perfect to hang near that stubborn toilet handle!

Kristan Ware ordered this huge Bible verse to hang behind her desk in her office.  She said that she wanted her customers to see it.  What a great idea for such inspiring words.  Her colors are shades of lavender, purple, aqua, and gray/silver.

The gray dots have a layer of silver glitter over them for added sparkle.  I think this one is just beautiful!  thank you so much for the order, Kristan!

Art Classes, Anyone???

I've taught a few summer art classes in my home.  Being a teacher, this seems to work out well for me.  I absolutely loved it, and I heard lots of positive reviews from my students and their families.

I've noticed from emails, facebook posts, and people just stopping me in person that there is a real need for regular art classes in our community.  It is my opinion that this void needs to be filled.  I took art lessons as a child and they have forever impacted my life.

I am hoping to offer this service soon.  I do have long tables, chairs, and plenty of supplies.  I've also got lots of fun and educational ideas!  All I need is the space...

My summer art classes were in my home.  This is fine for a few weeks in summer, but it is just not practical for all of the time.  All I need is a simple room with a bathroom and definitely a sink!  I'd be happy to pay rent!

So, this is a call for help!  If you agree with me about the importance of art education and inspiring all of our budding artists, please be on the lookout for the perfect space!

Share this information with anyone who might have ideas or access to a space.  I am open to other suggestions as well!

Look at all of these talented artists!  Thank you in advance for your help and I hope to see you in class!

Primary Passion

Don't you just love primary colors?  No matter what the season, they're always so bright and cheerful.  Primary will never go out of style!  This 5x5 size is so cute as a teacher gift.  They're the perfect size for any classroom and only $15.00.  This was an etsy order that shipped out a while back.

Here's another cute etsy order.  This one is an 11x14 with big red dots, black accents, and a ladybug.  Just adorable!

One of my regular customers, Talejah, wanted a soccer themed 8x10 canvas with blue and red for her son's room.  Love this one, too!

Be sure that you've marked your calendar for the Miss Rosa Mae's Barn Sale!  Here's the link to their facebook page for more information!

Fall Break 2014

Oh, I am already wishing I was back on the beach!  I started this post and looking at those pretty pictures...I miss it so bad!  We did our annual fall break trip to Perdido Key, Florida.  We don't usually visit the same place twice, but we've been back here for about 7 fall seasons in a row.  We love it!

Yes, Mary Jane made the trip with us!  I'm going to let her carry around her baby doll for as long as she wants to!  One of the reasons we like this area of Florida is that there are no crowds and nothing to do.  We just rest, lie around on the gorgeous beach, swim, and go out to eat at night.  That's it!

Look how pretty that water and sand is...and it's like that most days.  I played frisbee with this guy till my arm fell off!

This was the view of the community pool from my lawn chair.  You can see that in October we have the place to ourselves!  

I'm already counting the days until we are back in Perdido Key again!
