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!
