A few fun things

These are a few fun things I've been working on...

This was a fun idea I did for my mom's Valentine present. I'm pretty sure I didn't come up with this idea, and can't take credit, but I have no idea where it came from. Kennedy seemed to be drawn to it, so I can't believe there were no injuries and that it made it there in one piece. ha! My mom was so excited.



These were some canvases I did for a sweet girl I teach with. She has twins and they are about the get their very own big girl and big boy rooms. :)

I thought this was such a wonderful idea! My friend Ashley Wanted to do some canvases with their family creed on them. They have such a neat marriage and 4 great kiddos. We have known their family for a long time and she is always a wealth of knowledge to me and everyone else who knows her. : )
(p.s. sorry for the bad picture)

What a sweet dog! You couldn't ask for anything cuter to paint. One of our friends had this painted for his wife's birthday to surprise her! The picture isn't wonderful, but I was really happy with how it turned out. It's so funny how things happen. I never thought I would be painting animal portraits, but thankfully someone gave me a chance to push myself and though I'm still learning, I really enjoy it.

I love those paintings and the sewing kit! I may have to order the family creed that is a really neat idea. I'll get back with you when i figure out what I'd want it to say!

I love the family creed! What a great idea. The center canvas with the G and the argyle background is very cool.
