I told you I'd been painting a lot for weddings lately! I wasn't kidding...here's a few more! Here's a really pretty set of wedding song lyrics. This one is a little different because of it's square size and that it has the hand stamping all in the background.
This is a large 16x20 size. I love the huge initial in the background with the couples' name over the top. It's very simple and clean. They gave me the ribbon to use on the top and to match the colors.
Here's a couple of the established canvases. This one features some really pretty earth tones with just a hint of red. I also like the swirls in the background.
This one is a little plainer, but still just as beautiful. If features a truly earth tone palette with the cream, khaki, and chocolate brown all topped off with a chocolate satin ribbon.
Here's my favorite verse for any couple, new or old!
I thought this was a great idea for a wedding...a thumbprint tree! I left it unsealed so guests could put their thumbprints as the leaves when they signed in. What a fabulous keepsake for the bride and groom!

It's that time of the year...wedding season! I paint lots and lots of established canvases, monograms, and the newer song lyric design right around this month. They do make great gifts and decorations! I love these two simple, classic B monograms that I did for my co-worker, Dana Grissom.
Here's some pretty first dance song lyrics in the custom colors of teal and gray.
And another set of wedding song lyrics in teal and brown. This one wanted the name and date added at the bottom.
This Bible verse was in the wedding vows and is just perfect on a canvas. This one is also in teal and brown and has the name and date at the bottom.
Finally, one more set of wedding song lyrics, this time in the requested colors of purple and brown. I'm so happy to be a tiny part of all of these couples' special days. Congratulations to you all!

Here's some really pretty recent orders that have shipped out all over the place - from Australia to Montana! This aunt quote has always been popular. It usually has a neutral animal print in the background, but this time the yellow and gray combination was requested.
One of my favorite sayings for a new baby. This one was for a beach themed nursery. Brown and cream with all shades of blue and a blue ribbon was requested. I think it turned out so pretty and I love those colors!
This is another favorite saying for a new baby and I think all of us moms can relate to this feeling. The pale pink and sage green look so pretty with the chocolate brown.
I've been painting up a storm and have lots more to show you! Check back often!

I offered a new service at Sweet Ila Mae's...personalization on the spot! It was a big hit! I had several canvases that I had embellished, but left off any wording. Customers could purchase the canvas and let me fill it in while they shopped. Here's a few...
I am so happy with how they all turned out and loved seeing all of the customer's happy faces!
Lauren sneaked a picture of me painting! Now here's some shots of my booth...
Even though the weekend was a HUGE success, we did rain out on Sunday. You can click here to see the rain sale album on facebook. It will only be up until noon tomorrow!

I haven't been posting much because, honestly, I'm busier than ever! Between getting ready for a craft show, managing regular orders, teaching summer art classes, and ball season - summer is starting to feel not so much like summer. I do get to sleep late most mornings so I can't complain!
I am thrilled to be participating in my first ever Barn Sale! I've been working so hard on new designs and making sure that I have plenty old favorites. Here's the info for Sweet Ila Mae's in Quebeck, Tennessee. I hope you all are making plans to come see us! I'll have lots of "after pictures" on Monday.
Have a fabulous weekend!!

I don't do this very often, but I don't find a brand that I like as well as Matilda Jane very often either! I am hosting a Matilda Jane Party online for the first time, and I'm very excited about it! I love the brand's colors and patterns that are always on trend and mix and match for lots of wear. They also have lots of details like fancy trims and buttons that make them stand out from the rest.
Another great feature is the quality. When you feel these clothes - how soft and thick they are - you will fall in love, too. You can wash and wash and they still look fabulous!
Are you sold yet? Haha! If so, just visit www.matildajaneclothing.com to look and shop. Once you've made your list, simply email my favorite trunk keeper, Julie LaForte, at firstname.lastname@example.org. She'll take it from there!
The party only lasts for a few days so order soon! Thanks so much and happy shopping!

Isn't this just the prettiest? I love a beach wedding! My sweet, sweet friends, Tristan and Justin Adcock, just got married last weekend. I am so happy for them and their new life together!
Tristan's beautiful daughter, Demi, carried this sign down the aisle. It was requested to be done in the wedding colors of aqua and salmon. I did the handle in one piece of ribbon rather that tying a bow so she could carry it easier. I think it turned out really pretty and wedding perfect!
This canvas was ordered for them as one of their shower gifts. Tristan tells me that she already has it hanging in their house! Yay!

It's my favorite day on Kelly's Korner! We all get to show what we make and sell! Not only do I get to show my artwork, I get to browse your links and go see lots of other wonderful products.
Well, I make and sell custom painted artwork. I love to paint and have always painted. I am thrilled that I have found a way to do what I love for a living. It is always a pleasure to work with new and repeat customers and come up with the perfect design for them.
Here's how it works...you just check out the size and price guide in the sidebar, choose your colors and design by browsing the blog or using your decor as inspiration, and then email me with your details and any questions (email@example.com). I'll get back to you with any questions of my own and maybe a few suggestions. After we've got that all settled, I'll send you a paypal invoice that includes shipping and get you on my to do list. Easy as that!
How long you stay on my list depends on several things...I am a teacher and mom of two, there may be several orders ahead of you, you may have a complicated design that takes more time, etc. If you need it by a specific date, you need to let me know that when ordering.
I didn't add any pictures to today's post basically because the blog is covered with them! There is a handy little search bow in the very top left hand corner where you can type in a keyword if you know what kind of thing you are looking for. There's also a history by month of past posts in the sidebar.
I'd love to hear from you all...let me know what you think! Thanks for visiting today!

One of my very best customers, Rachel Harvey, ordered these two super sweet verses for her boys' rooms. They are a beautiful navy blue with white and khaki writing.
She wanted them matching and one for each room. I did one horizontally and one vertically just to make them a tad different. This is such a wonderful thought...I love it!
Thank you, Rachel!

Nothing says summer in the south like mason jars and lightning bugs! This sweet 8x10 is just perfect for the front - or back - door to usher in this new season. I came up with this new design for the occasion and it will be available at Sweet Ila Mae's Barn Sale.
I didn't think a ribbon was just right for this design. I decided to use a more rustic wire hanger and added a little yellow mesh ribbon just for a bit of sparkle!
I also did a larger 16x20 version. It also has the wire hanger and yellow mesh ribbon. This larger size is sooo pretty on the front door or in the sunroom.
Bring on some summer!
