Autumn Street Fair

I know I've taken my sweet time getting these pictures ready to share. Sorry! We had such a great day at the Autumn Street Fair! The weather was perfect, the food was wonderful, and I stayed really busy. So busy that I just gave Lauren the camera and put her in charge of pictures. She got some that made me wonder what they were! She also got some pretty good shots - remember, she's five! Then she got into the self portrait phase and literally took twenty shots of her forehead. Ha! To see the rest of the album, just visit Dream Custom Artwork on facebook.

Happy Fall Ya'll!

Misty Bolding ordered four canvases - one for each season - for her office. I think that's a great idea! She only has to change it four times during the year and she stays on top of things. I've got her fall themed canvas finished and here it is. It is just too cute!

Lots and lots of family canvases! I do a bunch of these and I love each and every one. I especially love the wedding gifts and helping that couple decorate their new home.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

We need these bright, beautiful colors on such a gloomy day. I love the color combination Kristin chose for her daughter, Madison. She also picked this cute font and wanted little jewels scattered about.

I've added a few red jewels since I took the picture, but you get the idea. I love how it turned out! So cheery!

Happy Halloween!

I can't believe Halloween is upon us. It always seems to sneak up on me. I've got the kids' costumes and trick-or-treating plans set...but this coming weekend? Really? Where did October go?

Small Things With Great Love

I love this quote.

Deborah Voll way over in Washington ordered this large 12x36 canvas as a Christmas present for her daughter. Her walls are a pale green and she has yellow accents. I did the outside border in white on white polka dots so this quote would really stand out. Deborah asked for a heart with the word "love".
I think this will make a wonderful gift. Thank you, Deborah! My fingers are crossed that it makes it there safely.

Growth Chart

My first growth chart! I think it turned out pretty stinkin' cute! Angela Cargile wanted one for her daughter's room. Little Kelsey is growing up and I love her idea of marking milestones on this canvas.

I had Lauren model for me to show you the size. This is a 12x36 canvas. Angela sent me lots of ideas and I changed my mind about 100 times! I am so happy with how it turned out. I hope Angela and Kelsey enjoy their new keepsake.

The Panter's Paisleys

Kendice Panter wanted some paisleys similar to the large G monogram I did a while back. I had to modify the design a bit to fit this size, but I love how it turned out.

This is one of those that is going to look great this fall, but can be used all year long.

Sweet Sisters

These two little 6x9 canvases are perfect for a set of sweet little girls. I can see these hanging on the doors to their rooms and matching in the hallway. I love the pink on pink (very girly!) and the little daisy that adds some white, aqua, and lime. I used a wide sheer aqua ribbon to coordinate.

I traded for jewelry with my sister, Ashley, for this order. She is back from a break after having a baby. For those of you who didn't know, she makes jewelry from flowers used in special occasions. I think it would be so neat to have some beads made from your wedding flowers! She made me and Lauren a beautiful pendant from flowers given to us on our trip to Mexico. Check her out here.

Pumpkin Patch

Here's some pretty pumpkins I recently finished. The top one sold at the Autumn Street Fair. I've always loved the bright orange pumpkin on the taupe background with the brown lettering and matching ribbon.

But then...Bonnie Collier ordered one with black lettering and ribbon as a housewarming gift for Jerry and Sherri Hale. I really like the new twist!
