Worms & birthdays

 Another teacher canvas...I swear, I love them all!  No particular theme with this one, just "teachery."

Caroline had a colorful first birthday party so she needed some frames to coordinate!

 I used some texture for the dots on this one.  I really need to use texture more often.  It's fun!

Rhodes, Love & Gators

 We have some friends who decided not to find out the sex of their babies.  Number 1 was a boy & 14 months later, number 2 was a boy as well.  She used the same nursery for both so I got the privilege of painting a 24x36 canvas for baby boy #2, Rhodes. 

 This mama chose the Delilah bedding from Cocalo Couture for her baby girl.  She already had her name & monogram in the room so we went with a simple "Love" painted on this one.

Teacher canvases are a big hit.  Lindsey's school mascot is the gators so this was a fun one to paint. I love the chevron.

Long time no see...

Well, look who's back to blogging!  Yes, just like everyone else in the universe, life is busy.  And has been for a long time...about 18 months to be exact & blogging had been put on the back burner.  After many "you really need to update your blog" comments from friends & family, I decided to squeeze in a few minutes to do just that.  Hopefully I will stick with it.  Here are a few things from a long time ago; last spring/summer, I believe, ha!

Landon's bedding has a cool/modern circular pattern with a few stripes here & there so I decided to use both of those elements for his 24x30 canvas.

Paige has the Cocalo Couture Harlow bedding that is still popular.  I used a little of that design in her letters.  The sides of the letters are pink, purple & lime green.


Social Bites is a bakery in Ruston that opened a location downtown last summer.  Everything Heather bakes is delicious.  I try to support local businesses as much as possible but I have to refrain from getting Social Bites everyday, ha!


It is a gorgeous day here.  I may just have to paint outside.  I know my legs could use a little sunlight!  Enjoy your day!

Show Us You Life - What you make or sell


For Harper's first birthday.  This owl canvas was different from the many I've done before...it was fun & I love the polka dot background!

 Teacher canvas!  Mrs. Foshee has an underwater theme in her room so we rolled with that.  This was a gift from a sweet co-worker of hers.  Hope y'all have a great school year!

 If you're visiting from Kelly's Korner, take a look around!  As you can see, I offer hand painted gifts & decor.  I 'specialize' in personalized, custom paintings for nurseries & kids rooms, but I also do artwork for adults, too!  Feel free to browse around & if you have any questions or would like to place an order, email me at thepeekabootique@gmail.com.  Have a great weekend!

2 Pairs

 2 pairs of canvases...

First up, a pair for twins!!  Our good friend, Alicia, had her twin boys in March.  We didn't know their sex until they were born so these were painted after to coordinate with their Noah's Ark nursery.  They were born at 31 weeks & are doing great now!

 Next, a pair of bears!  One of our close couple friends had their second boy, Jake, in April.  He inherited big brother Reid's nursery so Vanna wanted to be sure he had his own set of canvases.
