Merry Christmas from Our Family to You!

{Click to see it larger.}

Thank you to everyone who has ordered this Christmas and throughout the year. I'm honored to be a part of your homes and holidays. I've been painting, but I'm grateful to say I've been spending most of my time with those two hooligans. And there's  nothing I'd rather be doing. :)

Check This Out

I have been busying painting up a storm! Some of the orders I haven't even taken the time to photograph- shame on me. It may be a while before I can post here, but I promise I've been painting! In the meantime, please head over to my personal blog, Woven and Spun, and check out something that is near to my heart. Thanks in advance!

Christmas Orders

Halloween has yet to arrive, but it's already time for me to start thinking about Christmas orders. If you are thinking about ordering gifts, please let me know by November 15, sooner if you can. If you have early Christmas celebrations which will require an earlier delivery date, please let me know as soon as possible.

Orders for Christmas ornaments (link to pictures in the sidebar) need to be in by December 1, as they do not take as much time to create.

I will be placing an order with my canvas supplier this Friday. If you already know what you'd like, even if only the size (we can figure out design details later), please let me know before then so I can add it to my bulk order.

Thank you!

Modern Day Knights

My husband's cousin asked me to paint a canvas for his sons. The words are based on ideas in the book, Raising a Modern Day Knight by Robert Lewis. From what I understand, it's a must-read for fathers of sons. His idea was that we would create this canvas, and he and his wife would hang it where their two sons would read it everyday (after they're actually old enough to read!). Another benefit is that their daughter will also eventually read it as well and know what she should be looking for in a man (other than what she's seen in her father, of course). I love this idea and feel honored that they asked me to do it!

Laugh Out Loud

Remember the adorable boutique I told you about? Well the mama behind those adorable tees asked me to paint something for her kids' playroom. I was so excited to return the creative favor for her! She gave me very few instructions. She knew the phrase she wanted and that she wanted lots of color. No problem!

 I think this is such a perfect phrase for a playroom! There is little better than the sounds of our kids laughing out loud!

Mighty to Save

My dear blog (and phone) friend, Mandi, has been through some very rough things over the last few months. I'm thankful I have been able to walk through them with her. Sometimes you just need to hear that someone else "gets it." She asked me to paint this canvas for her youngest son, little D.

His nursery is absolutely adorable. She has done it in antique toys with a gorgeous color scheme of light blue, wagon red, and buttery yellows. I LOVE it.  Just look at this crib!

Beautiful job, Mandi! Thanks for letting me be a part of his story!

Trust in the Lord

After the wonderful customer who ordered the last two paintings I've shown you got her ideas to me for the kids, she added another order for herself. And I'm so glad she did! This verse is special to my family, and I love that it's special to her too.

She said she needs to read this verse everyday, and I do too. Thank you, K, for letting me part of your home!
