I like to pick a few good basics like chinos, trouser jeans, knee-length skirts, good t-shirts in black, gray, and white and mix and match. Throw in some funky cute accessories to stretch your wardrobe. These two necklaces, one long and one short, from Reminisce Heirlooms are my favorites. They add just the right amount of spice to any outfit and go with everything.

This sweet little 5x5 snowman went to Mileah Knowles. I love the pink touches and tiny hearts. I also like the pink gingham ribbon combined with the sheer. Perfect for Valentine's!
I am hoping for enough to make a real snowman!

My mom told me the other day that my blog "made me look perfect". I've been thinking about that and it may just be true. We all want to focus on the good and not even mention the bad. Everyone who knows me knows that I am no where near perfect. Even my mom.
Just to prove my point, here are a few imperfections that were perfected. Again, this is just a few!
For the Maddi canvas, I was sent a picture of the bedroom. There is no pink in it anywhere. Where did I get pink? I don't know.

With all of the snow days and sick days, I have gotten all caught up. Look at that big stack awaiting delivery.
Today until February 14th, each canvas is $5.00 off.
That's $5.00 off each canvas, not the whole order. That's a great deal! Those little 5x5's are now just $10.00. Those ever popular "established" canvases are just $25.00. Plan ahead and get your gifts at a great price!
Remember that I also have three Valentine's canvases and one little wooden sign available immediately!

The green, lavender, and yellow are taken. Pink is still available!
I found these adorable pastel colored signs at Hobby Lobby. The larger ones are wooden and measure about 3" x 16". They are available in pink, green, yellow, and lavender and have coordinating sheer ribbon. They are currently available with whatever you would like on them for only $10.00! That's a deal! Plan ahead for Easter, spring, teacher gifts, Mother's Day...whatever!
I only have one each in these sizes and colors so it is first come, first serve!

You are such a creative person and a wonderful wife and mommy who I admire and feel lucky to call a friend.

I enjoy reading your blog daily, and look forward to all your postings. You've inspired me to make some custom artwork for my own home, and I just love the way it has turned out.

Anytime I am feeling blue I am going to revisit this post. Anytime I need an ego boost or feel like quitting I am going to revisit this post. Anytime I need to be reminded of what wonderful friends I have I am going to revisit this post. Maybe I do need to do this every year!
Some of you entered bunches tonight and I knew it was going to be interesting. The luckiest number of them all is eleven. The eleventh comment belongs to Tanya Jones! Congratulations, Tanya! I know you've been visiting and commenting through the whole twelve days. Thank you for hanging in there!
I am sad that it is ending, but I do have lot of artwork photos piling up that are just begging to be shared!

When I went to college, I started out in advertising. I wasn't happy, so I switched to graphic design. I picked up a major in book illustration. Again, I loved what I was doing. We lived and worked in Nashville for a while, but it was time to move back home and start a family. I had a hard time finding work and that is when I sort of stumbled into teaching.
Now I paint just about every night from 8:00 - 10:00. The kids go to bed and eight and I have to go to bed at ten to function properly. I am a busy bee until eight, then I sit down and let myself unwind over a bottle of paint.
I am giving away four canvases, one for each season to be delivered throughout the year. I have your winter one ready, but it is a new design and I'm not ready to show it just yet. The winner will receive that winter one immediately, a spring surprise in April, a summer surprise in July, and a fall surprise in September. How's that for sharing the love?
