Early Christmas gifts!!

A few customers have already given their friends/co-workers their Christmas gifts so I'm able to share some pics with you!

These were done for 4 teachers as a gift from a co-worker.  Can't miss out on the fun so she had a canvas made for herself, too!

The gifts for her co-workers:

I like these canvases because they can use them at school or at home.  Megan, I hope you & your fellow teachers enjoy!

This next one was painted to match the Painterly Paisley duvet from Pottery Barn.  Abby had this done for her big sis.  She has brown accents to go along with the duvet.

That's all for now...  More pics to come very soon as Christmas is only a week away!

Have a wonderful weekend!

YOU can win a new computer!!

This is probably the most awesome giveaway I've ever seen.  You can go to Kelly's Korner Reviews & register to win a new HP TouchSmart 600 PC!  From what I've read, it seems to be a really cool computer & I hope I win!!

It's time...

So, I am loooong overdue for a new post...sorry!  I have been so busy painting Christmas orders that I haven't had much time for anything else.  And since they are orders for Christmas gifts, I'm not going to post any pics of those items until after Christmas....Don't want to ruin anything!


For your viewing pleasure, here's what's been happening the last few weeks (besides painting!).  Of course, I have to have a few pics of the baby on here...I wouldn't be a good aunt if I didn't!

Thanksgiving Day 2009
 I think I hear a familiar voice...


Yes!  It's my mom!!


Just hanging out with my big sis, Lola.

Me & my Boo, formerly known as Aunt Boo...I decided to shorten it :)


Being cute



Which is very tiring, if you didn't know!


Since Christmas is my FAVE time of the year, here is a pic of our tree & some other decor.  I have a little more than what's here, but I need to charge the camera battery before I can add them.  Note: I didn't put out nearly as much this year as I did last year.  The only reason being that I didn't get anything done as early as I normally do so I figured I'll just do a little this time (& this time only) & bring the big guns back out next year!

Our Tree


This is one of my favorite things. It's on our breakfast table & I love to sit there & stare at it....don't know why, I just do!


And, in case you were wondering....no, there is no bottom to that bell shaped glass thing.  I add the ornaments to it while holding it upside down & then (oh so gracefully) flipped it over to where it would sit on the table.  It becomes a conversation piece when we have company over.



Well, that's all I have for now.  I hope I didn't bore you, but with all those cute baby pics, who could be bored?!?!?

I promise as soon as Christmas is over, I will post some pictures of the canvases & frames & such that I have been working on.  Maybe I'll put some teaser pics on here in a few days....We'll see!

Hope you are having a great week!
