Christmas Vacation

My favorite holiday movie is "Christmas Vacation".  Clark and Cousin Eddie just crack me up!  "Elf" is quickly growing on me, though.  I was thrilled to be asked to do a canvas as a door prize for a Vacation themed holiday party - how fun!  I chose to use the famous moose cup in the background!

Someone at the party saw it and wanted one for their son as a Christmas gift.  Apparently, it is his favorite movie, too!
I've done several song lyric canvases, but these are my first movie quotes.  I think it's a great idea for someone who has that movie that really means something to them.  For me and Mike, our special couple movie is "Say Anything"!

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!
