Bliss Cupcake Cafe...yummm!!!

Bliss Cupcake Cafe' opened a few weeks ago and the owner asked me to paint a sign for the outside of their shop. I took the girls by on their opening day and we got to try one of the yummiest cupcakes I have ever had (lemon). It was also the prettiest. Go by and visit them at their cute shop in downtown Fayetteville (www.blisscupcakecafe.com).

Cross Canvas

This was done for a silent auction at my school. I forgot to take a picture of it, but Alicia was so sweet to send one to me. I hope it helps out a little. I love doing children's art, but it's been fun doing a few different things lately.


I had a sweet mom e-mail me and tell me that she and her 11 year old daughter have a special saying "Love you to pieces, 'cause then there's more." She wanted me to come up with something for her daughter's birthday. I love that they have such a special relationship. I hope her daughter loves it!

Cartoon Canvas

My version
original cartoon

A woman found this cartoon and said it was just like her father in laws dog named George. She had an idea to paint this on a canvas for him. This one took a while and I probably still missed some details, but I think it turned out pretty well. I hope he loves it!

Abstract Initial Canvas

Personalized Razorback Canvas

A sweet Kappa friend of mine, that I haven't talked to in such a long time, found my website and had me do these for her and a friend of hers. She's a big Hog fan. I'm glad they won for you Alison!

Personalized luggage

Cat Canvas

A friend of mine asked me to do this for her little girl who wants her room to be "cats" now. Instead of redoing her entire room, we made this to coordinate with the colors she already had in her room. I think it was a great compromise! : )

I also did this one for a sweet baby girl's room (sorry for the bad picture).

New Mixed Media Art

I was just messing around with some paint, paper, and a piece of wood I had and came up with this. Since finding out that my mom had cancer, this is one of the biblical truths I keep reminding myself of (Matt. 19:26). Nothing is too big for Him to handle. As much as I hate the unknown, He is in complete control.
I think these would also be cute with last names on them for your entry way or above a little table. I love doing new things!!! So fun! You can't see the colors very well...they are much brighter. I apologize for the picture quality.

Fleur di lis canvas

This was for my sweet friend Casey. Love ya'!

Back in the saddle again : )

I was a little worried about getting started again, not sure how much time I would be able to devote to painting, but things have gone really well so far. I just have to be better about spreading projects out instead of trying to pull all nighters all the time. : ) Here are some things I have done recently (some right before she was born and some this week).

This is a teacher canvas I painted for a little girl's teacher. I love all the beginning of the year excitement. Meeting new teachers, school supplies, etc... This is the first year I haven't been a part of that. I miss it, but I am loving being home with my two girls. : )

This was a sweet canvas done for a couple in Louisiana expecting their first baby

One of my best friends, from Kindergarten through now, ordered this for a friend of hers.
I hope she loves it. : )
These little soap dispensers were painted for my very good friend Lydia. She is all about black, white, and pink and is redoing her little girl's bathroom to match her nursery (which is adorable!!!). Love you Lydia!

Back in Business : )

I cannot believe how quickly September 1st came! Adelynn is already 4 weeks old and it's time to get started painting again. I am a little nervous about balancing everything, but also really excited to be painting again. I will have to figure out my new schedule, but we are getting better at our new routines everyday.

Short Break : )

I cannot believe we are so close to having our baby! With just a few weeks left, I am taking a break from painting, so that I can finish a few things before she arrives and have a little adjustment time afterward. I will continue to take orders, but will not begin completing them until after the 1st of September. I love painting and am excited to continue, but I know my limits. ha! When she arrives, we'll post updates on our family blog.

Lots of new things

These letters were done for a family that goes to my school. I had their daughter last year and she is such a sweetheart. This is for her little brother's room.

This was done to match Kennedy's new big girl room.

This canvas was done for a really sweet girl in Tennessee. She has such a great personality. I know we'd probably be friends if we got to know each other. This was for their new house.

This was done for a couple getting married in North Carolina.

This canvas was done for another couple getting married in North Carolina.

This was painted for a friend's mom who loves this verse and also loves, yellow, red, and black.

My friend Jenny Bunger asked me to paint this letter B (24") and write a verse on it. She came up with this cute idea.

This was painted for our good friends Kyle and Shannon, who just had a beautiful baby girl!

This is another teacher canvas:

The 2 canvas groupings were done for a neat family in Ft. Smith who has just adopted these sweet kiddos. It's a great story and they are so excited to get these children.

This was done for a baby gift for a little girl:

This was another baby gift, for a baby's baptism:

Gowth chart, canvas, and letters

This momma asked me to add a verse about growth. I came across this verse and loved it!

These letters were made for a good friend of mine. She wanted each letter to be different. I think they turned out pretty fun. : )
