I seriously cannot believe I have posted 50 times on my blog! Since the last few weeks have been really busy, I need to catch my readers up on everything. I've been so busy lately with orders that I have barely posted on here! So much has happened! 
  • I got an internship to be on a board at Melissa's Custom Gifts, a new greek store opening up on the drag in Austin. I have started a little work for my boss, but I haven't finalized it yet so I'll post pictures after I do. 
  • Finals are coming up, so after that I will have so much more time to do my canvases! SUMMER IS SO CLOSE. It's going to be awesome!! Expect lots of posts about: camp, Hawaii, the Frio, the Guadalupe, Galveston, Louisiana (that's right, Payton...ROAD TRIP), and of course ATX!!
  • I have a big order coming back for the wonderful Christina Williams of Christina Williams Designs.  All of the pieces are Houston bound today! She is so SO sweet, and I love doing work for her!! 
  • SPOILER ALERT: Lots of graduation gifts to come! 
Here's some things I have been up to:

That one time where 184 people repinned my this real life?

The blue and gold canvas is for my grandmother's best friend Jane. She has breast cancer and is such a wonderful, sweet friend to our family! We are all praying for her!! The Dr. Seuss is for Amy!
The pink one with the verse on it is actually my first A&M order!! Thanks AGS! The blue is for Hannah! 

I got to have lunch with Chloe today!! She is the sweetest thing. Love you!
Some of my work for my new internship! And then just some crafting projects with my roomie's part of our ATX bucket list!
Audrey Hepburn quote for Hannah!
Theta Mom's Weekend! Love you momma!

Best of friends

My best friend plays softball for Oklahoma State, so I almost never get to see her during the school year. They travel ALL the time, and this weekend she is finally in AUSTIN! They play UT this weekend, so I get to go embarrass her in the stands. As her best friend, it's my job. One of my favorite campers from Heart o' the Hills (my summer camp where I am also a counselor) saw some of my stuff on Instagram! Her name is Sam, and she asked me to make some canvases for her with the sweetest canvases about friendship!! It made me SO excited for this summer when I get to work there!

The eyes of Texas are upon you!/bkrafty hits 5,000 views!!

Hey everybody! WOW, I can't believe I have over 5000 views. My boyfriend texted me the other morning to tell me, and I almost thought he was lying. It's crazy to think that this school year is almost over, and my blog and business have grown so much! Thank you to everyone who is reading, sharing, and ordering! Y'all are the best!! This week I have a treat for all you Texas Longhorns out there. I had an order of graduation presents for some girls who are attending UT next fall.  The  only specific details were to make them all different, but to have their names and  beautiful burnt orange! 
Thanks y'all! HOOK 'Em!

Everyone out there has that one word that inspires them the most. For me it's believe, but for my friend Hannah (and the famous Taylor Swift) it's fearless. My favorite thing Taylor Swift says about fear is right here:

She is so fantastic. This was her Instagram picture right before her concert in Austin! 

Here's my own creation on fearless. Hannah wanted some sparkle, and the glitter looks amazing when it hits the light! LOVE!

Morgan's birthday!

A few weeks ago it was my awesome roommate Morgan's birthday!! I totally meant to post this then, but we were having so much fun with Texas Round Up, The Hunger Games premiere, and Theta Pancake Party!! I made her a cross to hang up in our room, and she loved it!

A few months ago I shared Jacque and Mike's story with y'all, and I am soo happy to tell y'all that it looks like they will be able to bring Phiona home soon! I was lucky enough to get to make another canvas for them last week, and it was delivered to Jacque last night! It has such a sweet message, and knowing how true this is for them was so heart warming. It's about God's timing. I really hope y'all like this one because it's one of my new favorites! Please keep Jacque, Mike, and Phiona in your prayers!! #bringphionahome

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! I have been making tons of deliveries this weekend even though I've been really under the weather. My mom and I were joking around that I was having a "trunk show" since I had so many canvases in our trunk! 
 Here's some pictures from today's Easter celebration!

I thought I would share this with y'all! I'm going to be a counselor at my camp this summer, and I really want to do some things for them! I've just been doodling ideas lately, but this is what I have right now:

My my my little ADPi

I forgot to include the adorable little lion painting I did for my friend Kyandra! She has a friend who is an ADPi at Texas Tech, so I made her this!

Kendra Scott

Last week my friend Meredith and I went to the Kendra Scott store on South Congress. It was special event, so it was packed. I didn' realize how popular Kendra Scott jewelry was until I came to Austin. Everyone has some! The Danielle earrings are her most popular; you've probably seen them on celebrities! Anyway, Kendra was actually upstairs the whole time we were there and came down to talk to all of her customers!! It was amazing. She is beautiful and incredibly kind! Meredith and I were dying for a picture with her (she is the one in the middle of the top photo.) If you haven't seen any of her jewelry, you should definitely check it out at or on her blog.

Love y'all!

April Fools!

Happy April Fools!! Right now my wallet is playing a trick on me and hiding somewhere in my room...not a very funny joke, but it gave me time to paint yesterday! My friend Hannah wanted me to paint this Dr. Seuss quote for her:
So I did! I tried to make it a little wacky and cute with the fun designs and bright colors like the animations in his books. Dr.Seuss is one of my favorites! This quote is, too! Hope y'all like this one; there will be more soon!

I just got another order for this one! If anyone else does, let me know!! I love it!
