Bridal Keepsake Ornament Gifts

Things are so hectic that I’ve created some things and neglected to even list them in my shop yet. That’s truly when you know you’re probably doing too much lol!

A long while ago, I created mother of the bride ornaments and had also made some bridesmaid, matron/maid of honor, as well as father of the bride ornaments. Finally, I have them all in my shop!!

Here’s the Mother of the Bride listing and the photo:Image

Here’s the Bridesmaid/Matron/Maid of Honor listing and photo:Image

Soooo much fun to create these and personalize them, knowing they’ll be treasured. I can’t say enough how special that is to me!

Personalized Christmas Stocking Stuffers!

When I found this wooden frame Christmas tree ornament, I knew I had to make it into a Vols design! For the inside, I did a painting of a “T” and then the outside, I painted a bright orange with white details, trimmed in blacks and shades of gray. Plus it can be personalized. And, then, I finished it off with an orange iridescent bow. What a great stocking stuffer for a Vols fan, I thought!

Here’s how it turned out:

I have these listed here in my shop. Also, I can create these in any type of team and colors needed. I so love custom requests! 🙂

For the Love of Monkeys

Monkeys seem to always be popular themes for little boys…they kinda fit. Monkeys are into all kinds of things, they’re curious, they are constantly observing and then doing…plus they are full of MISCHIEF!! It’s probably why I could paint a ton of different personality monkeys and they find themselves in my work ever so often.

This frame is for a lady in Texas who has a little boy who calls his little monkey (don’t worry, just a little stuffed monkey!) “Key” – how cute is that??

I have these listed in my shop here…now on to another fun project. There are just simply not enough hours in the day!! 🙂

GO VOLS!!!!

Being in the South as well as being in Tennessee, we love our football! UT Vols with the bright orange and white can be seen all over this state. And no matter what the score, we still love our team…but we love winning even more!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been creating orange and white decor and I realized I didn’t have a current UT Vols picture frame in my shop. So, it was time to fix that, PRONTO!

I decided to do this one with white background and all orange and gray accents. This is how it turned out:

I have them listed in my etsy shop and you can see them by clicking here. To me, it’s likely these could be used for gifts for others but would be great for anyone to have for themselves. Decked out in vols clothing and accessories, that picture in this frame would be super special at least to me it would. 🙂

Little Girls – Sparkles, Flowers and Butterflies

I realize I’m posting quite a few things these days but I have so many things to talk about it seems! Things are getting super busy so I’m thinking maybe folks are starting early shopping for Christmas this year. So many people have said they plan to and quite a few have said they’re already starting. I absolutely have to start early because being a maker of items that people like to gift, I get super busy in November and December which leaves me with two choices: stop creating things to take care of my own shopping during all that OR (and this is what I try to do) get it done early so I can spend my time helping others finish theirs up! 🙂

This little frame was so so so much fun. I was told the little girl likes pink and purple, so I decided to do a lavender frame with all kinds of flowers and butterflies…plus lots of glitter accents…even her name is glittered! The pictures never show the glitter but here’s how it turned out:

Image

I posted this on my Facebook fan page and have gotten several potential orders off of it already, so it seems to be a popular design. Anytime something I designed becomes something others would like to have, it warms my heart! There’s something about sitting down with a blank surface, having visions in my head about what I’d like it to look like, finish it, then have others actually want it that I absolutely cannot put into words. It’s the most humbling feeling!

I did go ahead and list it in my etsy shop also…you can see it by clicking here

What a wonderful life I live, though it took a whole lot to get where I am…and I still have a far way to go 🙂

Mules and Little Boys

Little Hayden loves mules and his family actually owns several which they have to pull covered wagons. His Mom wanted a frame for Hayden’s turquoise and off white room, so this is what I came up with:

What a fun project to be asked to complete, sure hope he loves it! With all these requests, I’ve decided to list them in my etsy shop here as a sample of what I can create. I could do this all day long….it absolutely thrills my soul!

Penguin Love!

I suppose it doesn’t matter what I’m doing, as long as I’m creating. Painting in particular has always been a passion of mine, so anytime I can create something – anything – I’m on top of the world!

This little penguin couple has it all….humor, love, fantasy, and happiness…all on a Christmas ornament! I wanted to create a Christmas ornament for a couple. Maybe to commemorate a first Christmas, a special anniversary, or for a new couple in general. I thought of penguins and how cute those little guys are so I used them as the feature in this painting.

Here’s the finished piece:

The really wonderful thing is I’ve already sold one, so it would seem someone else thought these little fellas were pretty special also. And, that absolutely makes it all worth it. 🙂 She asked for personalization on the back of “Our First Married Christmas” and the date of their wedding. How special it is to me to be a part of a keepsake for such a wonderful time in someone’s life. Did I mention that I LOVE what I do?? Cause I do and it makes me feel as though I’m doing something right in life!

I have them listed here in my etsy shop if you’d like to check them out. They make me smile every time I look at them!
