This has become one of my favorite cross designs.  I think it looks great in any room in a house!  I am excited to paint this in bright and fun colors with some funky ribbon!

Gift Package

I created this gift set for one of my little cousins..she is my only girl cousin, so I am always using new ideas on her!  Her room colors are orange, pink, yellow, red, and purple, such cute colors.  I decided to get crafty and make her a couple of her things for her room.  A while ago, I played around with ribbon wreaths, and they turned out very cute.  I took pieces of ribbon and cloth and attached them to a 14'' ring.  I added a larger initial in the wreath so it would stand out better (originally I had a smaller and lighter purple "J."  I also created her a canvas with her name on it.  I painted it on a 12x24 canvas, so its a nice size canvas.  I think this little gift set turned out so cute!  It is a great addition to any boy or girls room!

These Alabama canvases are on a roll!  This painting was created for a teacher at a local elementary school.  She is a huge sports fan, especially when it comes to the Tide!  

I spent all last weekend catching up on orders, so I am ready to take on more!  

Hope you all have a great weekend!

New Cross Design

My first painting I ever created was a cross, so I naturally love painting crosses!  They are so pretty, especially with the right color combination.  I decided to change up one of my designs a little bit and I love it!  I kept the polka dots and the outlining of the cross the same, but I added the ribbon in the middle of the cross, because I LOVE ribbon!  (When I go to Hobby Lobby, and I am picking out my ribbon..I will stand there for a good 10 minutes picking out the perfect pattern to match my painting)  But with this painting, I kept it simple.  Usually I add a ribbon to hang the canvas, but I thought it might be a tad too much to have ribbon on top AND ribbon in the middle..but who knows, it might actually look pretty good!  (I also just didn't have a ribbon that matched well with these colors!)

Also, if you remember from my last post, I am working on a set of four 8x8 canvases from the Laurie Gate dinnerware that my mom purchased.  Well here is #2!
