Walls of Art

I love to paint, but don't get much time these days to devote to it, but I always dreamed of having "original art" in my home one day. Well, instead of spending tons of money investing in someone else's dream, I decided to create my own "original art". It's the best feeling in the world when someone complements your artwork hanging in your home and you can actually take credit for it.

I know most of you girls are creative, so if you're looking for a way to personalize your home and be original, try purchasing a canvas at Michael's with your 50% off coupon and picking up some acrylics (much easier to clean up after yourself than oil) and see what you can create! If if you're interested in a canvas like any of these, contact me and I can whip one up for you pretty cheap too! The bottom two are actually Christmas presents for my nieces - they make great gifts!


  1. These are so pretty! Mr. Newlywed does pencil drawings, and we have some really nice ones hanging up.

    I can't even draw a stick person.

  2. wow-you are talented. I love them all. Especially the lady and the circles. I have 0 drawing ability :)

  3. Hey! I found your blog from Blue Eyed Bride's. I love the flowers on the top! I'd actually be insterested in talking to you about it (or one like it) for a Christmas gift for my parents. Would you email me at with info?

    I love your blog, and I'll keep checking back! Thanks!

  4. What pretty artwork!!!

    I have always wanted to do this! So what kind of brushes do you use with acrylics? How did you learn things like how long it takes to let your canvas dry, etc? You have totally inspired me!

  5. Beautiful! I love they flowers and the lady too! Great job!

  7. I love me an arty girl! You just may have inspired me to try it. I do lots of things, but have never tried painting on canvas. I paint everything else that doesn't move, but never canvas. Love your blog. I think I'll add you to my role.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
