Sports Theme

After I finished painting her two little boys their canvases, Chas asked me to paint a gift for one of her friends who just had a baby, and requested an Alabama "Roll Tide" theme. Here's how it turned out!

Cute and Funky

I painted these for Danielle, a super cute girl who is redecorating her bedroom in the colors tan, black, and red. I used a damask-inspired pattern for the background, and these will look great hung closely together or apart in the room. It was fun to do something bright and different for Danielle!

This made my day!

Chas sent me these pictures of her little boys (who are ADORABLE) with their canvases. I lovelovelove seeing where my canvases go---so if you have one/order one/will order one, send me a picture once it's in its new home. Thanks a million, Chas!

Cute as a Button!

This is my new button! It might just be temporary, but I wanted to try and do it myself to learn something new---and I did it! Grab my button and advertise for me :o) Thanks a million!

New Pieces

These are some new pieces I just finished!

This was a set for two brothers, with their names inserted for the verse Jeremiah 29:11.

For a new sweet little girl!

This is a neutral background with baby blue writing. This is a great verse for a new baby!

I made this canvas (below) sparkle by adding some rhinestones. The sailboat was painted to match a nursery.

Great Verse

I painted this for a customer in Indiana. I love this verse, and it will be a wonderful reminder that He is the reason for our salvation. This is a flat 8x10 canvas, shown framed. New nursery canvas pictures coming soon!

New Nursery Canvas

I painted this as a gift for a couple in our Lifegroup class at church who just welcomed a little boy. These canvases make great gifts. It works well to do a neutral background (doesn't usually conflict with a wall color), and then just adding some accents in the colors of the nursery.

Collage Frames

I made this frame for my sister by cutting out magazine images and arranging them on a wood frame. These frames are extremely personal and would make such a special gift. However, images of flowers, etc. would be just as pretty and unique. Since every frame like this will be different, prices will vary. Email me with questions!

Dorm Canvas

I painted this canvas for my dorm when I was in college (back in '04!). This was one of the first canvases I ever painted. If you are interested in purchasing, email me!

I have added a general price list on the side of this page! I have been adjusting some prices based on materials, etc. If I have talked to you and quoted a lesser price, I will still honor that. But these will be the prices for any new orders. Also, one small change: I will not be selling any framed canvases. I will sell flat canvases so that you can choose the frame that you like best and matches your home. Wrapped canvases hang well by themselves and don't need a frame! I'll be adding magazine collage frames and new pictures will be coming soon! Thanks!

Harper Love :o)

Kelly's Korner is one of my favorite blogs, and I had been praying for her little girl Harper when she was born. Kelly and I recently connected because of University Baptist Church and my grandfather being her former pastor. You can read about it by clicking here. I made Harper a little canvas with trim and a bow. A canvas like this is 8x10, and with trim and a bow the cost is $30. Lots of love to Harper Stamps!
