New look, new pages, new ideas!

Happy Sunday, everybody! So I was thinking this morning when I woke up that I should start making more paintings with quotes that I like and show y'all by posting them on here and even make a page for all the ones I make that don't have a home..haha. My roomie Morgan and I are going to the craft store tonight, so be on the lookout for some really cute things coming soon! We have some crayon art, ADPi sorority decor, and some fancy initials! It's going to be chaos when we walk into that place!

Also, I just added the comment box on the left side of the page. That way you can message me directly off of my blog! Don't be shy, I love getting emails and comments!

Ps. Check out the new "College" and "Quotes" pages at the top of the screen. I put up a few ideas for University of Texas on the college page, but if you want your school on there, let me know. Hook 'em!

WOW! I am speechless. We already reached 2500 views! Seriously guys, when I first started posting I never thought anyone outside my immediate family would want to look at my blog, but this is unreal! Thank you SO much for giving me motivation to keep going with the thing that makes me feel the most connected to the Lord and what makes my heart sing. This weekend is going to  be filled with fun designs: zebra print, crayon art, and some more sorority canvases! I can hardly wait. I thought this canvas is perfect for the occasion:
Love y'all!

Sorority Love

It's been a while since I made any sorority artwork, so I was SO excited when my friend Hannah asked me to make her this adorable Alpha Delta Pi canvas! In case you can't tell from the photo, the letters are  covered in glitter..(which I LOVE)! My roommate is also an ADPi, and she wants me to make her one, too! I'll make sure to upload that one when I finish, too. I like to make each canvas have an element that are unique, so I added some dark blue detail to the crown! Love you Hannah! thanks for letting me make you this...I adore it.
I also made this Chi Omega canvas just for fun! I just love their colors together..especially the gold glitter. If you want it, let me know!

Inspired by Tiffany's

This week one of my favorite friends, Erika, showed off the canvas I made her, and what do you know!? One of her friends at SHSU, Amy, wanted me to make one for her! Amy is so adorable, and she and I have a mutual love to wearing big bows in our hair, so we bonded instantly. Her idea was to have a Tiffany-esque blue bow on a white canvas, and I asked if I could add a bit of sparkle to it for fun! (I think it gives it a little something extra, don't you think?!) 

The bow looks darker in the picture than it does in natural lighting, but I guess that's what happens when you use an iPhone for a camera! I promise, it actually has more of that turquoise look to it.
Amy's Canvas!

Big week!

So this week I was blessed with so many emails and texts about how much people love the blog..and orders, too! I've painted four canvases so far, but number five will definitely be done today! Keep your eyes peeled because I'm REALLY excited about these!

Thank you Erika and Priscilla for spreading the word! I'm incredibly blessed to have such awesome friends like the two of you! As soon as I finish this homework, it's time to craft my little heart out. (@Lily Pinter - she knows what I mean!)

BIble Verses

Last week one of my best friends Erika Fernandez asked me to make her a little something for her dorm room with one of her favorite Bible Verses, James 1:5-6. I was a little nervous at first because it's a longer verse, but it's a great one! I used jewel tones, metallics like silver and gold to make it really pop, and even glitter! Here's what the final product looks like:

She set me a picture of it hanging on her wall yesterday, and it looks GREAT! If anyone wants one let me know!!

Christina Williams asked me to make a little something for her daughter, Caroline, who is redoing her room. The new theme she is going with is more modern with black and white, so I was inspired by none other than Kate Spade's black and white stripes! 
Here's what the finished product looks like:

Want one for yourself? Shoot me a message! I had a blast making this one.

I also made one as a gift for my best friend Gessenia! Here is what hers looks like:

Better eat some black eyed peas and celery. Hop on one foot and all that jazz because today is the first day of a new year! 2011brought a lot of surprises, so I can only imagine what 2012 has in store. After going by Christina Williams Designs yesterday, I have two more projects!  By the should go check out her Facebook page! It's awesome. Here's the canvas that I finished today: 

More to come! Happy New Year, y'all!
