Christmas Cards!

Here are two cards I designed this year. I know what a hassle it is and how it stinks that everyone else has the exact same card as you. Let me design your photo card (printed on photo paper 4x6 or 5x7) Send me your photo or photos, I'll design and you print them where you love to print photos. They can be as simple or complex as you'd like. Easy as pie. $15

A family tree

This is one of three windows I'm doing for a family of 11....yes, 11! They tore the old windows out of their marvelous Victorian farm house and gave a few to me (thank you!) and I'm in the process of doing three so they can hang them back in their house. This is the first one, finished this morning. I love it. Those are old hymns in the background and the tree is an old oak tree that resides on their farm. I love being able to take a little of their life and put it into art. I hope they like it! The other two are of a windmill and their huge red barn. Hopefully they will turn out as nicely as this one.

Commissioned works

These two windows are done for a lady in Mount Vernon who wanted her wall color to be seen through them. This one is done on a big black storm window. The other window I spotted picking up Baylor from preschool, got a few odd looks from the other preschool parents while I was filling my trunk with windows! Hey, they wanted to get rid of them!

Make it personal

So I have had a few requests for mugs or paintings for weddings and new babies or Christmas presents. So if you're trying to think of the perfect gift for the new mom or the new couple. let me know! Here are a few ideas:

1. Welcome sign with their new last name
2. Initials mugs and/or plate with wedding date
3. Baby watercolor/pen and ink with date/lbs/name
4. Ceramic coaster set with favorites/children's names/initials
5. New Address ceramic tiles (i.e 202)
6. New baby Christmas ornaments

I'd love to make something personal for you!

A few photos from this weekend

These were set up in Diane's mudroom (all are still available by the way!) and need a good home!
Here is a shot of some of my hand painted mugs and the pear paintings that currently resides in my kitchen.

Thanks so everyone who came and made it a great success! I am blessed.

Mug shot!

My mom and I were trying to think of creative Christmas gifts to give friends and family that were inexpensive but fun. I came up with personalized hand painted mugs! The ones with initials or names are for people at her work (Shhhh, act surprised!) and the ones with illustrations are for sale! ($10 each)

Don't forget to mark your calendar for Saturday....THIS SATURDAY! Reduced windows....they've got to go....really, I want to see them go home to someone special!

More open house stufffffffffffffff

Wine-o collage, complete with wine glass stains! Watercolor pencil, vintage music and matted. ($45)
Okay, for some strange reason the computer is uploading this photo the wrong direction. I've tried three times and just turn your head a little to the right. Two 8x8 canvases $50
Wooden wall hangings. 5" x 5" ($10 each) They are a little more pink than the photo shows.
Ugh. A mess I suppose......not a fan at all....I keep trying to fix it and it gets worse and worse....
Half a pear on 8x8 canvas. ($35)

Copy and Paste

So these are a special order for a lady who just gave birth to twin girls. What a cute idea! I just used fabric pen and free handed them.
This little piece of work....on wood...not sure how I feel. It wasn't what I wanted to do, I just did it. I'm on the hunt for some cheap canvases so I can get a few done before the open house! Eeek, it's coming up isn't it?

A little sampling....

Here is just a sampling of the gift tags I have been working on.....
I'm a little behind on art making because of a sick Brody and a sick mommy so I need to get my butt in gear this coming week. We're hoping for a good showing!
