Clear eyes. Full hearts.

Before I start, I'm doing this on my phone so the pictures won't be up until I get back to my laptop! Alright, it's no surprise that I am in love with my state. I just can't help it. I mean, Texas is a really awesome place to be! Luckily I'm not alone in this, and I got some orders from some of my fellow proud Texans. 

If you've never seen the show (or even the movie) Friday Night Lights, you're missing out. Whether you're into football or not, although after this show you will love football..trust me, you need to watch it. I promise you that you will fall in love with Coach Taylor, his awesome wife Tammy, the stories and relationships, and last but DEFINITELY not least, Tim Riggins. His famous line "Texas Forever" has inspired probably like thousands of hashtags, facebook albums, and tshirts...and it also inspired this canvas!

Before school started my dad surprised me and took my to the Dillon Panther field house. It's right outside of Austin! I almost passed out when I realized where we were. Anyway, here's a picture of the field house! I wanted to go on the field but the gate was locked and they had barbed wire around the face so I decided I better not test my luck. Hope y'all enjoy the pictures! Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can't lose.

Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live

This canvas is for my friend Casey! When she sent me the quote I immediately fell in love with it. It's so sweet! I wanted to do something fun and colorful with it, so I painted bright pink roses against a turquoise background with pops of lime and kelly green on the leaves.

So with this canvas I wanted to post some of my favorite pictures from this past year that kinda went along with the quote!

seeing my beautiful cousins!
disney princess half marathon!
my sweet girls! and alex my soul sista
most courageous girl i know, my sweet friend amy 

pwc with our little pawnee sisters!

 my lovely friends anne and meredith! love them so much!

Each of these pictures represents an awesome memory, but they are also reminders that there is something to celebrate in every day! I made this canvas last year and put it up in my dorm room, but the words have stuck with me. Even on those bad days don't forget that there is always something to celebrate! Xo

Follow me on Pinterest!

You can now follow me on Pinterest directly from my blog! Click on the Pinterest logo in the right column and start pinning! I have a board called "bkrafty" that most of my canvases are on.

Just recently a Pinterest page called "Sorority Please" started pinning my canvases onto their craft board , and then there were hundred of repins! Then I got a notification that Ole Miss Panhellenic repinned a canvas, too. I couldn't believe it. How cool is that?! So many of my canvases were pinned from my blog and from my ETSY page as well. The most popular one was the pink Audrey Hepburn quote! Have you seen my canvases anywhere else on Pinterest? Let me know so I can thank the people for pinning them!

Tulane Theta

Hey y'all! So this canvas was the first order I have gotten from a Theta that isn't from Texas! It's for my friend Emma, and she is a Theta at Tulane. I actually went to high school with her, so I was so happy to get to paint this canvas for her (it was a gift for her little!!) We brainstormed a little bit with different ideas because she said she'd already done something with the Lilly Theta print for one gift, but she still wanted to incorporate Theta into this canvas!

**Okay COOLEST thing ever. Emma literally just texted me telling me thank you and that Sue-Claire loved the canvas! That is so awesome and crazy that I just so happened to be blogging about it right this minute.
kappa alpha theta chevron canvas for Emma and Sue-Claire 
So to put a little bit of Tulane and Theta into the canvas, I painted the canvas Tulane colors! My favorite part was the chevron. You can't tell in one of the pictures, but the chevron also SPARKLES. My favorite. Definitely. It was gorgeous when the light hit it! I wrote Kappa Alpha Theta underneath her little's name to incorporate Theta, too. XOXO TLAM

turquoise and glitter chevron
Here are some canvases I did for my friend Hannah! She wanted to get matching canvases for her and one of her best friends with this quote. I thought the quote was so pretty that the design needed to be simple, so I painted the background turquoise and did a chevron design with clear glitter.  The glitter chevron was one of my favorite parts! It didn't take away from the quote, so I was really happy with the way it turned out.

love the way to glitter looks in the light!
