A new audience

My most recent project was completed and given as a gift to a friend I have known since I was 5 years old. She and I are both getting married this year - on the same day! How can there be 365 days in a year and two friends choose the exact same date for their wedding?! Such a weird coincidence!

I was attending her bridal shower this past weekend and I wanted to give her something special that she could keep forever. That's where the painting comes in :)  It has her soon-to-be new married named painted and glittered on along with the year they will be married. I love how it turned out and I have already had a couple of requests for others. So it looks like my paintings are branching out to a new, older audience and not just kids anymore :) Although I do think I'll have to try this concept with a child's name and their birthdate ...it would look so cute in a nursery! Stay tuned for that :) You can see the pictures I posted of the completed project on my tab for my 52 finishes project! 6 complete and 46 to go!

We made it to February!

I have been so consumed by all of this wedding planning and preparation lately!  I promise I have not been slacking on my resolution :P  Most of my projects, as of late, are all things for the wedding.  I finished the invitation design and got those printed and ready to mail! I also created some cards to have on the tables at the reception.  I don't wanna give away any sneak peeks to those of you who may be attending... so I'm going to have to save these finishes and post them later!
