You can see in the picture below that Annie is a little partial to Mitchell over Jack in this picture. She was either trying to kiss him or pummel him here... we're not sure which! (Or else she just always rolls left, regardless of what is in her way!)
I love monograms....on everything: baby bloomers, bags, bow holders, bows, onesies, dresses and WALLS!
I painted a script monogram on my best friend Jennie's daughter's nursery wall and her mother-in-law had the great idea to "frame" it with an old oval frame. My friend Dana saw Jennie's nursery and wanted to do something similar in her daughter's nursery, but we had to be creative since she doesn't live just down the street like Jennie does. So I found some LARGE carbon paper and was able to paint little Claire's monogram on the paper and then give it to Dana. She then traced the monogram onto the wall and then painted it and framed it. And I think it looks great! If you're interested in doing something like this on your walls, please let me know! I can do many different fonts and sizes and this option is cheap...only $10-$15 depending on the size and complexity!
And finally...at long last...my daughter Annie's monogram. LOTS of colors! A 3-set monogram like this (side canvases are 11" x 14" and center canvas is 16" x 20") would be $100 and can be done in a variety or colors and fonts.
This is an 8" x 24" canvas that's a more pastel version of the Homerun Harrison I did about a year ago. This is for Wells' first birthday from his parents, Dana and Chris. His mom was telling me that when he was born, they had everyone who came to the hospital sign a Louisville Slugger baseball bat that has his name on it and they're going to mount the bat next to the painting. Isn't that a great idea?
My blog friend Blake asked me to paint a canvas and bow holder for her soon-to-be-born daughter Ann Mason. (Isn't that the very cute name you wished you would have come up with?!?) This matches her PB bedding and I love all the PINK!
I am a LITTLE behind on the postings....I've been painting...just not posting. These are three 12" x 12" and a 20" x 8" paintings I did for some friends' coffee shop! Fun to play around with whimsical colors that might not always end up in a nursery together!
I used all my creativity up on the past two post titles! This is an approximately 12" x 4" wood name plaque (would vary based on the length of the name) and comes with a coordinating ribbon (bows for girls!) and is $20.
These Australian animals were done for baby Brooklyn, whose parents met and got engaged in Australia! For those of you like myself you aren't up on their native Australian animals, the one on the right is a Lorikeet Parrot.
We had a broken piece of fence in our "backyard" (if you've seen it, you know why I put that in quotes), so I made a picture frame out of it for my best friend, Jennie, and her to-be-named little girl that's due in October. If you're interested in something like this, be aware that each one will be unique...and based on what kind of old wood I can find. (Or if I can knock down my neighbors' fences without them noticing.) Something like this would be $50 and could be personalized with a name and with specific colors.
I had the pleasure of painting lots of art for little Harrison's room. This is an 8" x 24" canvas and the squares are 12" x 12" canvases...all have light blue and white stripes around the edge of the canvas. The baseball monogram plaque is an 8" wood circle and also has blue and white stripes on the edge. (These look like they have brown borders on them, but that's just the wall paint! The paint on the canvas goes all the way to the edge.)
I got the opportunity to paint a 16" x 20" canvas for baby Frances' room and then a little sign to match the color scheme for the door. The scene matched the bunny toile swatch (the fabric will be on the bed), but the colors match the oh-so-cute blue, pink and yellow scheme on the windows and walls!

This 8"x 10" frame holds a 5" x 7" picture and has an easel back, but can also be hung on the wall. Also, please notice my reflection in the mirror! I'm concentrating really hard on not making this one a fuzzy picture like most of mine are :)
These 8" tall crosses make great baby gifts! They can be personalized with polka dot color and stripe color. (There are stripes along the sides.) You can also substitute a monogram for "Bless this child" if you'd like!

Here are a couple of picture frames I've done. These wood frames are 8" x 10" and hold 5" x 7" pictures. They can be customized with your choice of paint colors, ribbon color, and you can pick your own phrase, name or monogram to go on it as well.
I did these three 12" x 12" canvases for my cousin's baby Spencer! (We're hoping he makes his entrance into this world in May...and not a day sooner!) The green backgrounds are all the same color, although they don't look like it from my pictures.
