For Joanna...

One of the greatest blessings I've ever been given in way of friends is Joanna. We lived together for almost three years before Michael and I got married, and I can't even begin to count the things I've learned from her, ways I've been blessed by her friendship and hours we've spent laughing.

She - through God's grace and provision - gave birth to two of the cutest little twin girls last year. And I was honored to do these for her girls' nursery.

The idea came from something I often think about my own twins: they are two parts of a whole, and at the same time fully unique by themselves. So I took the baby blanket that matched her bedding and used the tree on it for inspiration. Set of two 16 x 20 canvases: chocolate brown background, cream tree, pink and green accents. Its a little different than the stuff I've done before, but I must say that I love these, and am so pleased with the results. I hope you are too, Jo!

I love you and was honored to do these for you!

What I've been working on...

Here are a few canvases that I've completed recently. See anything you like? Just send me an email or give me a call, and I'll get one started for you in the colors you want!

16 x 20 for my friend Amanda to give to one of her friends. Argyle in blue and white, border background in pale lime green, main background in light blue and chocolate brown. This 8 x 10 is special because Jennifer in KY had my good friend Carrie and I work together to create a picture frame and a canvas as a gift set for a friend. Carrie and I worked together to make sure that the pieces would coordinate perfectly. Keep checking back because Carrie and I are working on ways for you to order picture frames and canvases from us that match. More to come soon...but in the meantime, be sure to check out her link in the right hand column: The Polka Dot Lollipop.This 16 x 20 was done for Haylee to give to her mom as a birthday present.

This set of two 8 x 10's was done for Haylee to give to a friend of hers. The baby's room was done in Auburn University colors/football theme, and I have heard they were a hit at the shower.
This 8 x 10 oval was done for Linzette: pale pink background, white monogram, chocolate brown writing, and hung with a chocolate brown ribbon w/ pink polka dots.
Thanks for checking in on me! I hope you like what you see!....More canvases on the way, so keep checking back.
