Canvas Art: Wedding Shower

I mailed this painting to a client last week. She gave it as a gift, so I can post it now. :)

She wanted something for her friend that matched her style...Neutral and rustic!Very earthy. Taupes, sages. My client LOVED it and I hope her friend LOVES it!
Have a blessed Monday!

Caught in Action

Our child (dog-Valkyrie) has found a new thing to do in our home. She sneaks on the couch in the loft upstairs. We're not sure where she got this from or why she started doing this. She's not allowed on any other furniture in the house. I guess she thinks because we hardly ever use the couch upstairs that it needs some attention and love. lol! Child, PLEASE! We have caught her doing this a couple of times.. hints why we have a sheet on the couch. Normally, if she sees us while she's laying on the couch, she jumps down immediately (GUILTY!) But this time, she didn't budge! And to top that off she stuck her tongue out at me. What am I going to do with her?! LOL! I took her picture, let her enjoy rebelling for a split second, and then made her get down. I'm a terrible mother, I know! Enjoy seeing my dog "backtalking" to me!
Have a blessed Thursday!

Things are a little CRAZY around here!

I don't know how to put it any other way.... things are CRAZY around here. I have just finished up my weddings from last year, getting prints and books mailed out, and not cleaning my office. However, cleaning and organizing is my to do list for next week. I will be having a sale coming up (Valentine's Day!) so look out for some announcements for that. I have a couple of paintings to finish before I add more to my plate.

A look inside my little world right now! Unorganized Chaos is driving me crazy!
\Have a blessed Monday!

Too Funny Not to Post!

I took this picture for a friend at church- it was totally spur of the moment. I just happened to have my camera with me and I snapped this picture. It makes me laugh. It represents all three of them perfectly. It was definitely too funny not to post!
Have a blessed Thursday!

I have the BEST Clients!

I have to brag on my clients a little bit! They are the BEST and they spoil me... just a little bit (ok, a lotta bit!).
My last wedding was such a treat for me! My clients put me in a very very nice hotel... you know the ones that serve freshly baked cookies at 3:00 in the afternoon and hot tea and coffee is freely available to you all day long. Yeah, one of those! They made it an extra special weekend get-away for me and my husband. Such a treat! My clients even had a sweet goodie bag waiting for us in our room. The bag was filled with our favorite snacks. They even put hand sanitizer in there (I can't go anywhere without that!). Their hospitality made me feel so special. What a blessing!

Angela and Ross, thank you for being wonderful clients! Thank for you giving my husband and I a much needed weekend retreat. It was an honor to be part of  your special day!

Have a blessed Tuesday!

Graphic Design: Bridal Shower Invitations

A client contacted me last month about designing some invitations for a bridal shower she is hosting. I painted a couple of canvases for her a year ago (I still can't believe it's already been a year!) and she knew I did graphic design as well. 

She gave me this to run with:
"I would like it to have gray and yellow in it. The bride is very modern and likes clean cut designs. She is planning on using billy buttons, yellow tulips, and oncidium orchids at her wedding (I think billy buttons are her favorite flower that she’s discovered though). I think I would like the designs to have flowers on it."

I did a little research because I wasn't sure what billy buttons were. Now, I'm pretty sure, I'm in love with them. They are so cute.

Here's a little inspiration:

Graphic Design: Christmas Cards

A couple of weeks ago, a dear friend of mine called me in a panic. Her photographer (due to uncontrollable circumstances) wasn't able to make their Christmas cards. I had about two hours to design a card and send them to my lab so they would arrive in time for her to send them out.... and they did! What a cute family! Their photographer did a great job on this photo!
Have a blessed Wednesday!
