Christmas orders & more...

Well, Christmas came & went so quickly!  I absolutely love the holiday season & wish it didn't fly by so fast.  Our Christmas was wonderful.  We were able to spread some great news with our families...we were going to have a baby.  Everyone was thrilled, as were we.  Then, just last week, on January 6, I went to my doctor to have an ultrasound because the night before, I knew that something wasn't right.  The worst had happened...there was no heartbeat.  I had a miscarriage.  It was devastating news.  Unfortunately, it happens to more couples than you ever realize.  Even when we want to ask why, we remember that everything happens for a reason & we have to keep our faith.  I believe that God will bless us with healthy babies in the future, but we will always remember the angel that's now watching over us every day.

On a lighter note, I had a ton of orders this year & am so very appreciative of them all!  Here are just a few of the orders that I had:
 
Nita & I work together at Acres & Avenues Realty (just a little plug :)) & she decided to order bow holders for some sweet girls in her life.  This is 4 of the 7 that she ordered.

Lori is married to one of Dusty's cousins (I thing they're actually 3rd cousins but because this family tree is huge, I just refer to them all as regular cousins.  It saves time).  Anyway, Lori decided to redeem a Peek-A-Bootique gift certificate she received.  You can't tell from the photo, but the red border is actually a rusty red/copper & the pattern in the middle is a pale blue.

This is what Lori ordered for her mother-in-law, who is a teacher.  I love how fun the colors turned out on this canvas.


A close friend ordered this for her daughter, Georgia, to match her bathroom decor.  She's 2 & I'm pretty sure she has more hair than I do.  The bows on the holder are ones that she wore as a newborn...seriously!

Heather, another friend, had Rhett on November 18.  She used the Madras bedding from PB kids.  Since I had letters to paint to go with it, she wanted a Bible verse on the large canvas (24"x36").  The canvas looks so good against Rhett's green walls.  

His letters.  The "R" is light blue, but as we all know, my photography skills are below par.

I have more photos to post from Christmas orders, but will be breaking it up into various posts.  Hope you enjoy :)
