Love Bees

Another late post, but I am catching up!

This is a flower pot that I painted for my boyfriend's mother for Mother's Day.
She likes bees, well they actually keep bees.
I painted a cute pair of love bees sitting on a flower.

She really liked it!
I am very happy with how it turned out.
I feel that I really nailed the shading on this one!

A late post, but I am trying to get back into posting regularly on my blog again!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.
I surprised my Mom with a canvas painting of herself and us kids as angels.
It is very different than the style of painting I usually do, as it is more on the abstract side.

She loved it! She said she really liked the colors and the meaning.
I put a lot of thought into the layout of this painting, and I think that she knew it when she looked at it.

Utensil Holder

We have never had a cute utensil holder.
Working at a pottery studio, I decided it was time to paint us one.
I decided to use a color palette of browns and teals.

I made a large heart and placed inside of it all types of items you would find in a kitchen.
After all, the kitchen is the heart of the home.

Thanks for looking!

Superman, Unzipped

If you have seen some of my blog posts in the past, you will know my younger brother LOVES Superman.
His birthday was last weekend, so of course I made his something in Superman theme.
He had asked me about painting him a cup.
Originally, I wanted to make the Superman logo look like it was ripping out of skin,
but I didn't like the way my sketches were turning out.
I ended up decided to make the logo look like it was being unzipped.

He was really happy with it!

Thanks for looking!

Coffee Coozie

I work with a friend who just recently picked her college.
She had been having a hard time deciding, really weighing her choices.
I felt that she did a great job with this big decision, so I made her coffee coozie and added in a special note to show her I was proud of her!

Boot Warmers

My boyfriend's sister's birthday was last month.
While browsing threw different boot warmer patterns, I came across one that had a bow on it -
they instantly made me think of her.
I made them for her as a belated birthday gift.

I crocheted them in Loops & Threads  Impeccable Glitter yarn.
They are an ivory color with gold glitter in them.

The pattern I used can be found at

Thanks for looking!

Ruby Red Slippers

What makes you think of the Wizard of Oz more then ruby red slippers?
Well that is exactly what inspired this ornament.

The black and white in the background are like the tights.
You can't tell as much in this picture, but the red paint on the shoes is actually metallic so it shimmers.

Thanks for looking!
