Nora's Memory Chest

Nora's mom contacted me and was interested in a small toy chest, mainly to keep Nora's childhood keepsakes in.  She wanted something timeless, but still unique for her daughter.  This was going to be a special Christmas gift from Nora's grandparents.  I hope Nora loved it and will really appriciate it as she gets older.


Established signs are one of my favorite things to create.  They can really be personalized to the person recieveing them and make a great addition to a family room or patio.  They would be great for Christmas, or anniversaries and weddings and showers!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

First, I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and enjoyed spending time with family and friends.  I know we did.  And second...  I want to thank everyone for their orders during 2009.  It was a very busy but successful year, and it leaves me only imagining what 2010 has in store.  One goal I have for 2010 is to paint something for my family members early on, so I don't have to stress for when it comes time for presents at Christmas next year.  I would love to do an Established sign for several family members, so maybe I can get to work on those sooner, rather than later.  We were given many incredible gifts this year, one of which being a new tiled back splash for our kitchen.  We are actually working on that this weekend, so I'll be sure to post before and after pics.  I can't wait!  So here's to a very Happy New Year and nothing but the best in 2010!

Intro: New Style of Hair Bow Holders!

Introducing a new style of hair bow holders!  These can be any size you wish!  I am lucky enough to have a very talented mother who can sew- so this is def. a joint venture with her (like most of my projects!).  The back is a canvas-like material, and each row is made of coordinating ribbon.  There is a rod at the top to keep it hanging straight, then finished off at the top with a bow! Then I paint the letters and ta-da- its ready!  This is also perfect to use with headbands, since you can lay them over the ribbon.

Worth The Wait!

I had previously done these letters for someone who was waiting for their child.  When I say waiting, I mean waiting.  Praying, fundraising, meeting after meeting.  The couple had struggled with health issues resulting in infertility and were finally nearing the end of the adoption process.  Earlier this year they welcomed Abby to their hearts and home.  She is now 7 months old and growing so fast- so logically they ordered a growth chart for her nursery.  Her bedding is the Skip Hop Mod Box collection.

ABC Easy as 123

Sophie is going to grow up so big and strong along side her new growth chart.  I painted this to match her Circo Mix and Match ABC's and Dots Collection.

Little Boy Blue...

I painted letters for Liam's nursery, back several months ago.  Here's the lastest additional to his decor.  These are great- just to add some color to an otherwise white door.  I have also done them with rather cute sayings like, "You wake him, you take him." "Mommy and baby napping- Do Not Disturb."  This would also be nice to use on your front door as an alternative to the sign in a post below.

Holy Bow Holder Batman!

I've been swimming in bow holders! I think they would make a great gift and add a nice little touch of personality to any little girls room.  The good thing about bow holders for last minute people (like myself) is the turn around time.  I can typically get them to you within a week!  Need a quick personalized gift for a shower or birthday party next weekend?- Shoot me an email!

Just hangin around...

This "L" was ordered as part of my October sale. I painted it to match a painting in someones living room. This would be a cute addition to hang from a door knob, the mantle, on a door.
