"The Wedding"

Kristin Blackburn asked me to do some paintings for her wedding this coming Saturday. I posted a blog before with the white ones... and now I am posting the blog with the colored ones.

Lucas and her have quotes the go by or say to each other. So she wanted them simply painted on a canvas. Her colors of her wedding are the fall colors. But they are doing their house in browns and oranges too, so I thought I would stick to that. That way maybe she can use them around the house after the wedding.
Congratulations Kristin. I know your wedding will be beautiful. I wish you many years of love and happiness!!
Thank you again!
p.s.sorry about the shadows.

A Reminder :)

My cousin, Courtney, will be having a baby soon. So I thought I would drop her off a reminder of how much I love her.
My mother found my sewing machine at her house, and brought it to me. Well I was "planning" on going to bed early, but I had to use the sewing machine. So I had some fabric left over and got to work. I was surprised it worked, haha. I thought I would get ahead start and make her some burp cloths. Maybe it will help her name her baby considering the baby is due in OCTOBER!! and she doesn't have a name!!

The Moore's

Julia Moore asked me to paint her a "fall" paintings. We finally decided on something she liked. I tried something new, and I like it. I don't know about anyone else, but I do. I tried an "antiquey" look, if that is a word. She wanted golds, browns, and an orange! I think it turned out neat. Thank you Julia!!

in the process,,,,

Kirby and I have planned this for a while, we have just been waiting on the house to get close to finished as possible. Little Connor's room is going to have one cool room when we get finished! Above is the finished fire... I tried to make it as real looking as possible. These flames are huge compared to the picture.

These two pictures are not finished yet, they should be done soon. Above is the fire hydrant right by the door when you walk in, I just have to add the details. The one below is the chalked out version of how the fire truck is going to turn out. We raised it above the floor a little bit because Kirby is going to put Connor's bed on this wall. [I know you can't see this picture too well, but it will be finished soon :)]

Thank you so much Kirby for asking me to do this. I can not wait to see what the finish product is going to look like..

Transform Yourself

Toree Craven asked me to paint her sister a sign for her new business! She asked from nuetral colors with some gold... I wanted to do her something simple since it was for a business. Toree I hope you like this... and your sister enjoys her business. Thanks Toree!!

P.S. I am sorry about the picture it will not turn the way I need it too. It may be my computer if not I apologize!!!!

Part I....

Kristin Blackburn asked me a while back to make her some decorations for her wedding coming up. She wanted to meet me that way we could get everything correct, and Boy is this girl prepared. She had a binder of everything in order and print outs of everything she wanted, of the idea.

I loved how these turn out and this is my absolute favorite font... She wanted them on wood. That way it looked a little country. The last one her son is going to be holding, and i loved the lowercase look. Kristin I hope you like these...

we are back...

..from vacation. It was a much needed trip and we had so much fun! Despite all the "weather precautions", the weather was really nice and maybe rained on us for 10 minutes. But other than that it was good... it was a little cloudy but hey I will deal with that :). We went to eat with Lacey's "bee-bee" and that was fun. If you go to Panama, I would suggest eating at Saltwater Resturant! It was so good.
We went to the beach Saturday and Sunday, and packed most the day Monday. But we went to eat at Pineapple Willy's and sat on the peir-- the tides were wild. Glad we didn't get in that day. But it was still pretty to look at.
Now I am back to school, work, school, and did I mention work? I am going to try and get some paintings up real soon. Sorry for everyone for the delay! Just trying to get adjusted to the school schedule and work at the same time. Thank you for all the comments while I was on vacation :).
*hope everyone has a great week!!
