Recent Happenings

Fun Teacher Canvases!

Taylor's mom was ordering a canvas for new baby, Aspen, & decided that she didn't need to be left out!  Taylor wants to be a rock star & needed decor to coordinate with her dreams.  I'm told that Taylor is in love with her canvas, especially the glitter stars!   

Aspen has the Harlow bedding in her nursery & her mom wanted the same design that I've done for previous clients.  I love it & am pretty sure I could paint this blindfolded!

 Speaking of things I love....This little guy turned 1 on November 18.  I can't believe how fast this year has gone by & he's not even my child!  He had a pretty great first birthday party surrounded by friends & family. 

His cake was delicious & oh so cute!  I decided to help out the sis by jazzing up some of those wooden figures you get at Hobby Lobby or Michael's.  I saw the idea while browsing Etsy & thought it would go with his party theme.  It's amazing what you can find on Etsy!

I let David Scott be my guinea pig for a new item.  Personalized party favor carriers!  These are flexible plastic totes that are personalized with the theme &/or names of guests.  Sarah already had the goodies so we just stuck them inside the totes, which can later be used as a holder for pencils, markers, crayons or whatever your little heart desires.  If you want more information on these totes, please let me know!  They come in a variety of sizes & colors!

And here's the Rainwater Tribe!

This summer, we stayed with some friends in Dallas when we went to the Rangers game.  We are all big Rangers fans so as a "Thank you," I painted this door hanger for them.  Even though the Rangers didn't win the World Series, we're not letting that get us down.  As a side note, sooooo glad that week of our lives is long was a rough week in this house, specifically for the hubs!

Sweet Sylvia turned 2 recently & had an owl themed birthday party & to go along with that theme, her mom ordered this owl frame.  Hope the birthday party was great!

On the same note, Reagan had a birthday party a few weekends ago & this was one of her gifts from her mom.  Apparently, she has lots & lots of huge bows & had no place to put them.  So, we decided to put a little twist on the traditional bow holder.  Meet the Monogram Bow holder!  It's a Custom 11x14 Monogram Set with ribbon hanging from it.  When Reagan's mom told me to have 2 ribbon from each canvas, each piece measuring 3 1/2 feet long, I knew she wasn't joking about having lots & lots of huge bows!  What's great about this order is that when Reagan gets too old for bows, she can simply remove the ribbon or roll it up & tape it to the back of the canvases & then she will just have her monogram.

I'm deep in my Christmas orders & will post what I can when I can, but most of it will have to wait until after Christmas....I'm sure you're on the edge of your seat, ha!

Anyway, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

This cutie hopes so, too!

Also, don't forget about the tile coasters & guitar string bracelets!  I've got a few of each left & they make great gifts!

Picture Overload...

So I'm going to blame the lack of blogging on the fact that I got a new computer.  Some pictures are on the old computer, some on the new computer, yada, yada, yada.  Anyway, I figured that since I didn't have any commitments today (thank you, Lord!), I would take the time to update.  I won't bore you with lots of talk so here's lots of pictures!

For baby Finn

Sibling step stools!  Thanks, Suzanne!  She told me they want to wash their hands all the time now just so they can stand on the stools, ha!
Princess Landry Grace

 LG & Jake's dad played football for LA Tech so we did a football theme for his!

A Christening gift for Katie's niece!

Landen Rose's bedding.  They added lavender accents to go with the black & white.

The last few weeks, I've been very busy with sorority gifts as well as working on regular orders & getting ready for CedarTown Market, which I am participating in again this year.  If you're in the Ruston area the first weekend in November (the 5th & 6th), head on over to the civic center for some holiday shopping!

Here are the only pictures of the sorority stuff I did.  I probably did 10 times this amount!  I'm really good at forgetting to take pictures!

 Amy is one of my best customers!  She loves her Emme Claire & has really decked out her rooms (yes, she has 2!) in hand painted decor.  I've done quite a few posts with Emme Claire merchandise in them & I really appreciate the business.  Thanks, Amy!

Before school started, Lindsey requested a sign for her door & I somehow forgot to blog about it!  She is using Monkey stuff in her room so we went with that for her door sign.

I've still got a lot of stuff to blog about but I'll save that for another post...which will be sometime this week.  Now that I've put that out there, I know I'll do it!

Also, don't forget that the deadline for Christmas gifts is November 15!

Hope yall have a great weekend!

Lots of pictures!

For Sweet John Roque...Melissa painted the walls of John's nursery in Atmosphere Blue from Restoration Hardware.  Since getting the paint swatches, I have been looking for a room in my house to paint this beautiful shade of blue, ha!  Dusty doesn't know it yet, but we may have a blue bathroom soon...I've been wanting to paint it blue for a while & just haven't found the right one...until now!  Anyway, back on track, I am in love with John's nursery.  It's so classy & fabulous.  Melissa, I'm so glad you like this sweet gift from Sarah...I can only imagine the shenanigans David Scott & John will get in to one day!

Part of the nursery.  The color matches perfectly!  I was so excited!

Baby John's mobile.  Love it!

This is the frame I did for Stephanie for her Picture Perfect Giveaway.  As soon as I get the frame done for winner Andrea, I'll post pictures of it, too!  Stephanie has a very encouraging blog for runners (& those of us that don't run but like to think that we could, ha!)....check it out right here.

We love our vet but especially love the girls that work for him.  They are all so helpful & kind which means a lot to someone like me who is constantly bringing in strays.  I think they secretly dislike seeing my car pull into their lot, but they are always so nice when I walk in no matter what I'm there for!  J'nell, one of Dr. Sexton's employee's, needed a bow holder for Baby Addison's hair bows.  She has Puzzle Patch Bedding from Land of Nod, which gave me tons of possibilities for the design.  I decided to go with something fairly simple & I think it will compliment the bedding very well.  Thanks J'nell! 

Erica contacted me about painting a few frames for her daughter's birthday party.  She wanted something simple with white, green, & bright pink.  She had a photographer at the party & I can't wait to see the pictures of the frames as I know I've mentioned that I am lacking in the picture taking department!

Jhanna is a planner.  She e-mailed me like 3-4 months ago about this order for her daughter's birthday party, which is this weekend.  Organization...the light of my life.  Jhanna was going with the same owl theme that Amy had for Emme Claire's party, but she was using different colors.  The orange isn't as bright as it looks in these pictures...refer to the lack of photo skills...

Seth & Vanna are good friends of ours & she decided that Baby Reid needed a little color in his nursery.  I used the colors that are in her curtains for the canvases to tie it all in.  She was so excited to finally see these when I gave them to her at her shower 2 weeks ago.  A couple of days after, I got some pictures of them on the wall.  Her nursery is awesome, too!


Not sure why the pictures are so small, but oh well.  I am in love with Reid's crib!

La Tech's first home game is this weekend.  We're getting excited & hope we can win against Navy.  Go Dawgs!!

Have a great weekend!
