For Amanda...

My friend Amanda came to me with a pretty specific request for this 24 x 30. Her daughter runs track for one of the private schools here in town, and wanted to use the team's motto across a canvas to hang in her room: RTFOOE. It stands for Run Through the Father, Our Only Endurance. Her daughter's walls are periwinkle, so we thought it would be cute to use softer shades of the school's colors (that coordinate with the periwinkle color) on the canvas and also incorporate her daughter's name.
I hope Emily is a pleased with it as you were, Amanda! Thanks for letting me do another one for you!!!

For Nicki...

This 16 x 20 oval was done for Nicki's little girl's room, and I just love it!! Black background with white polka dots, outlined in hot pink, a thin zebra border outlined on both sides in silver, and a hot pink background with the verse from 3 John. Hung with a hot pink satin ribbon, it's ready to be hung her room. I think it's just precious.

Thanks so much, Nicki! I hope you love it!

For Danielle...

This adorable farmhouse set was done for Danielle's little boy's playroom. The middle canvas is a 9 x 12 farm scene, and the ones on either side of it are each 8 x 10 tractors. I love the little John Deere logo's in the corners, and since her last name begins with the letter 'H', I took the deer off two of the logos and replaced it with an 'H'.

I hope you love these, Danielle! I loved getting to do them for you, and I hope you were as pleased with the end result as I was!

Taking New Orders!!!

I just wanted to mention here that I am now taking orders again, AND I have a new size canvas that is the perfect size for gifts when you need just a little something special.

I now can do an 8 x 10 oval for only $25.00!!! I have only done one of this size, and wasn't able to get a picture of it due to how quickly my friend needed it for a gift. It is the perfect size for everything from teacher's Christmas gifts, or the friend who already has everything, or a new baby's nursery.

Contact me and place your order today!!!

For Candy

This 16 x 20 oval was done for Candy's baby girl on the way. I believe she's due sometime this week (if she's not already here yet), so hopefully they were able to get the nursery all ready before her big arrival. Candy sent me links to pictures of the crib bedding, so I was able to match colors perfectly, and also incorporated the small rosebud and flower vine pattern around the verse. Sweet and girly, but not too much. I think it'll look perfect against her pale pink walls!

Congratulations, Candy!!! Thanks for letting me be a part of this very special time in your life...I loved doing this for you! ;)

For Erica

This trio was done for Erica's daughter's room. A 16 x 20 in the middle, and a 12 x 16 on either side. I matched the colors to Anna Kate's bedding so that it would match perfectly. I love the details: tiny white polka dots on the outer border of the big one, the Princess' tiara, and I even used Anna Kate's monogram on the Princess' little dress - I mean, who doesn't love monograms?!

I'm so glad they finally made it to you, Erica (after UPS lost them for almost two weeks!). Thanks for being so gracious and patient through a really frustrating situation! I hope you and Anna Kate love them!

Lots more to come!!! Stay tuned!

For Jennifer...

This set of two 9 x 12 canvases was done for my friend Jennifer's office at work. She wanted turquoise/blues and browns, and chose the verses she liked best off a list of options that I like to use. Past that, she really gave me the freedom to choose the style/theme of the canvases, and here's what she got:And this is one more 9 x 12 that Jennifer ordered to give to one of her friends who is expecting a baby sometime soon. She told me the colors that her friend will be using in the baby's room, gave me the baby's monogram letters and knew the verse she wanted on it. Here's what will be hanging in the nursery. Hopefully it will be a source of encouragement to that new mommy every time she looks at it. Thank you, Jennifer, for allowing me to do three very special canvases for you...I really enjoyed doing them, and I hope you love all three!!!
