Pumpkin Patch

I ran across this cute idea on Pinterest the other day.  (Follow me @ Laura Hatfield if you aren't already!!)  I am in love with fall which means I love all the decorations and craft projects.  There are so many I want to try out, but of course, there isn't enough time so I decided I'd try out the pumpkin patch.  These pumpkins are made from 4x4 pieces of wood.  I painted, distressed them, and added the stems. I found the little sign at Hobby Lobby in the Christmas section.  I used my cricut to cut out"Pumpkin Patch" on it.   They are the perfect addition out on the porch PLUS they can be used through Thanksgiving!

Unfortunately, I am only offering them to locals in Huntsville, AL (due to the extremly high cost of shipping it'd cost!)  If you are interested in a set, please email me at

The weekend is almost here!!

Hello There!

So my plans to blog last week obviously fell through.  It has been a bit hectic, but I am loving every minute of it!  With Christmas just around the corner, orders are starting to pick up.  I have been working on a large order that is headed to Florida..I am so excited to get them shipped out this week!  Here is a few from that order!

I just love everything about this canvas (maybe that is just because I am a teacher myself!)  I think I will have to make one of these for my classroom.

Painting the next two designs are so much fun.  You don't have to worry about perfection with it...its one of those paintings that you can just go with it!

Alabama Dots

Auburn Dots

These door hangers are the perfect addition to your door during football season. Heck, you can keep it up all year long!

Don't forget to get Christmas orders in before I close them down!!

A House Divided

Roll Tide and War Eagle!  Congrats to both teams on their win last night!..& to celebrate the wins, I thought it'd be a perfect time to blog about my latest 'House Divided' design!  I think it is safe to say there are plenty house divided homes down here in the south - especially with Alabama and Auburn!

This is one of my absolute favorite designs - Family Rules!  These are a great reminder to keep on the wall for the days life gets a bit to hectic and we forget what family is really about.  

This Alabama door hanger was made for a customer's grandfathers birthday!  It is a large 16x20 with an Alabama football attached.  I hope he had a wonderful birthday!!

Last but not least, Halloween is right around the corner.  Does everyone have their decorations and candy all ready?

Chomp Chomp!

Things have been so hectic here at DBA lately!  I have got so many orders going on right now!  Last night I counted 6 different canvases that I was working on at the same time!  Now don't get me wrong, I love what I do and painting brings me so much joy!  I just wanted to go ahead and let you all know that depending on how many Christmas orders I get, I will have to stop taking orders eventually to allow time to get all orders completed on time.  So to insure that you get what you want for Christmas - get those orders in!  I will definitely keep you all updated if I get to this point! 

These canvases are definitely going to some Florida Gator fans out there! 

Even though I don't love the Gators, I do love how this turned out.  I was a bit nervous that I wouldn't be able to recreate the Gator, but I think he turned out better than I expected! 

Can you guess what type of teacher this is going too?
