And the winner is......

I just drew the winner of the Christmas Canvas Giveaway!!!!

I'm sure you're dying to find out who won... I will tell you, but first, I'll show you a little something. This is a Christmas canvas that I recently painted. (I took the pics before I added Merry Christmas to it! Oops!) Anyway, this is just one of the Christmas canvases that I'm painting this year. I can do anything, but I'm doing a lot of this one & one with ornaments. Either can be customized to whatever colors you like to use during the holiday season & also can be personalized. If you would rather have a snowman, I can paint a snowman...It's up to you!

(11x14 - $37)

And for your information, I have a booth at CedarTown Market (a holiday market at the Ruston Civic Center, November 6 & 7) where I will be selling Christmas Canvases, fall canvases, ornaments and also taking custom orders. Some of what I'll have at CedarTown will already have "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays" on it, but some will be blank so that I can paint a name on it. It will be the same with the ornaments. I'll have some already painted & some ready to have your initial added. They are super cute & will make great co-worker or teacher gifts! I'll post more pics of my CedarTown stuff tomorrow.

Back to the giveaway! Just to show you a little more of the Christmas canvas, here is a close-up of the presents. I added a fun texture to both of them. I think it looks great & really makes the polka-dots stand out more!

So, you are probably ready to find out who won, right?!? Well, congratulations to....


You have won the Christmas Canvas Giveaway!!!
I've already e-mailed you to get the information on what you want your Christmas canvas to look like, but to those of you who didn't win, don't hesitate to put in an order for your custom Christmas canvas [or ornament or any custom canvas :)]. I can usually get these finished & on it's way to you within 4 days of placing an order.

This giveaway was lots of fun so keep checking in never know when I'll do another one!

So exciting!

I recently completed 2 orders for a friend/co-worker. She & her husband had just transformed their 3rd child's room into his "big boy" room. They went with a camping theme from Target & I was asked to paint something to coordinate. Here is a pic of the bedding...

And here is what I painted:
3 11x14 canvases
It looks so cute in his room!!

Shortly after this was delivered, her oldest decided that he needed something painted for his room too since the other two had something in theirs. So, here is his bedding:
And here is what I painted to be hung over his "play area":
I hope the Browns enjoy their new paintings!

These next few were done a while back & are just now making their debut on the blog!

My friend Brittany, had sweet baby Emory at the beginning of June & as my gift to her, I painted this:
This next one was painted for Deacon. His mom is due in about a week or two & a mutual friend gave this to her for his train themed room.
This is a teaser pic:
This is the full 16x20 canvas
Katye is so ready for Deacon to get here & I will be sending lots of prayers her way over the next 2 weeks!

Just in case you were curious, bow holders are $15! Isn't this one so cute?!?
I love the fun colors & polka-dots!

Before I go, I would like to leave you with this:
Go Bulldogs!!!
Louisiana Tech defeated New Mexico state today in their Homecoming game with a score of 45-7. Great job guys! Also, the students on Homecoming court looked wonderful (that includes my brother!). Congrats to everyone!

New Picture Frames!

I have been working on a lot of Fall & Christmas stuff lately! I really enjoy this time of year so I have fun creating frames & canvases that coordinate with the season. Here are 2 of the many frames that I've done lately.

Just imagine how much cuter this will be when you add a photo of your little one in their Halloween costume!
(Custom picture frame - $15)
3.5x3.5 opening for photo

I love this one too. It's brown with a metallic gold glaze over it. A fall picture of your family will look great in this frame that can be personalized!
(Custom picture frame - $18)
4x6 opening for photo

I'll post more Fall & Christmas stuff soon so check back. Also....I'm having a GIVEAWAY next week so stay tuned for details on that!!!
