Like this one...
I painted this big ol' apple thinking about a teacher's gift at year's end. I had someone ask me back around Christmas if I could get some teachers' gifts done for the end of the year. I don't know who that was or what they wanted, so I decided to do a little generic one. It is 11x14, so it is $40 and of course, I can personalize it. Lemme know.
And this one...
It is only partially completed. I decided to stop because according to who wants it, I want to add the correct number of candles and a big ol' "3" or "1" or whatever on the cake.
I haven't painted the base yet either. So, if you like it and know of someone who needs it on an easel at their upcoming birthday party, holla! I will add a name or whatever! Also $40 at an 11x14 size.
These are all 11x14 sizes and are all lying across my kitchen table presently! The heart with peace is still just like that, so a few more colors could be added if you would like. And of course a name or a word of the year, or a special phrase or whatever.... be in touch!
I just don't know if I can let the "Lucky" go. I am totally and completely in love with that canvas. And I am pretty sure that Ellie's new comforter is going to be grey and the greenish color is definitely going to be the color of her wall. sooooo....
I just don't know. But it would be a great canvas for a boy's room! I tend to do more girlish things. Wonder why!
And speaking of girly things... I am also kinda crazy about "Bloom, Baby, Bloom". I did that one thinking of my girls. Remember at Christmas, I did one for Gabbi Girl that said, "Let your little light shine." I like those uplifting, self-fulfilling, optimistic type words to surround them! My Poppa did that for me when I was a little bitty and it impacted my life in a very positive way!
Ok, fleur-de-lis canvases are always a popular choice. So, I decided to do a few of those too. I am crazy about that metallic paint. It looks different from different angles. Also an 11x14 at $40. I would paint a name or word across the bottom in a dark tone so it can cover up the lighter swirls if wanted.
And can you even believe it?! I am already gearing up for Christmas orders. Every time I paint canvas orders (and don't worry, you peeps who have orders in, I did lots of yours too!), I am going to throw in a few "extras" and definitely some Christmas ones! I only did about 300 at Christmas, so I am getting ahead of the game this year. If you are also a year round Christmas gift buyer, contact me and I can add a name to this one. $40.
One of my employees ordered this one for a friend of hers who lost her little 14-month-old daughter, Erin, last week. How tragic! I cannot even imagine that! Purple was her favorite color.
Seeeeeee? More Christmas paintings. A 16x20 elf shoes canvas, 2 11x14 red glittery ornaments, an 11x14 red and green present, and a 14x14 cool square one with two gifts that need a couple of tags on the gifts to personalize them. Give me a holler to call dibs on the one you want.
This one if for Owen...
and this one is for Campbell.
They each got a little white added to them because I thought they needed a little lightening up. They also got their respective Bible verses painted on the bottom in brown and a little white name in cursive in their green letters.
And now, Amy, since you asked, I will be getting together a whole big ol' bunch of smocked dresses ready for sale. What sizes are you interested in? And are you interested in other outfits too and what about little girl shoesies?! I have many, many! Holla!
Ok, back to canvases. This one is a little 8x10 and is $35. Left the bottom open for personalization.
Apparently I was in a holiday mood! I did this Easter egg that I could add a name to or a springy phrase. I also like something like, " You are Egg-stra special."
I wish I had put the picture of the shamrock with the words on it that Mary Allison's mom bought and send to her other, less special and spectacular daughter, Elaina. ONLY kidding! Elaina just won a role at Dis-a-ney World in the Star Wars show as some kind of mean ol temptress who dies after a battle with a light saber. I am serious! If in Orlando, go see her in the show. Anyway, since she is several states away, pam bought a shamrock that said, "I am LUCKY to be your mom" and sent it to her for St. Paddy's Day. Cute idea. But, I love the idea of a plain ol "Lucky" too. Or "lucky to be your friend", "lucky to have a friend like you", "lucky to be your sister", blah blah blah. If you are interested, let me know how you'd like it personalized.
I have a dalmation canvas completed, a Christmas one that was paid for way back in December via PayPal for you B.L., a plane, (but not yet its compadre, the truck), a football for a nursery going to Pensacola, and hmmm... ummmm... I can't think what else right now. And, I have a bracelet in the works for Kendra!
So, there you have it. Let me know if you are thinking about a particular canvas and I can get it out fairly quickly. Oh, and about that ribbon necklace kit, it is totally packed up and ready for shipping. I think I have 27 available. However, I have to take the time to take a picture of the completed project, find a computer that I can upload it onto, and find the time to type up the directions vs. get Mary Allison to video me putting it together, and then, post it on a blog. As soon as all of these planets line up, there will be a ribbon kit on the blog for el-purchase-o. It is coral with springy colors on the ends.
Mo, the wanna-be artist.
