You ain't met my Texas yet

Happy Wednesday, y'all! After a pretty hectic week of school filled with tests, projects, work, a cooler and canvases, I thought I would finally post these canvases. After I did the first "Texas Forever" canvas for Kelli, I got emails asking if I could do more. The answer is YES. I love the Texas flag, and I would love to paint more of them! In fact, here is another one that I did this past week!

If you're wanting a more personal design, I did this canvas for Jenna! She wanted to give her grand big a cute graduation gift, and she messaged me about a custom canvas design. I have actually done a few before for graduation gifts, so I have been hoping to do more again this year.

Last but not least, I have this canvas that was also ordered as a gift from Katie! I am always excited about painting UT themed canvases. I also painted one for two roomies: Brianna and Erin. Their canvas includes both of their names, but it has the same design as the one below. I'll post that one soon! I hope y'all love the way they turned out. Hook 'em!

Have a great week! More canvases and coolers to come soon :)

Gifts for big/little!

I make these a while ago, but didn't have the chance to post 'em! These two canvases were made for big/little gifts! I thought it was such a sweet idea, and since this week is BIG appreciation week for my chapter, I thought it would be perfect to post them today.

Praying for Boston

Hey everyone,
Yesterday I was browsing around the internet looking at ways to support Boston after Monday's terrible events. I stumbled upon this really cute shirt that I think is absolutely perfect from RUE LA LA. They are only $20, and I ordered mine last night. Here is the link to signing up for Rue La La (you have to sign up to buy the shirt, but it's worth it) : RUE LA LA

Mom's Weekend

Hey y'all! 
This past weekend was our Moms Weekend for Theta, so my mom come up to see me! She is literally an angel, and I am so glad I got to spend the weekend with her. She was feeling really sick, but she still wanted to go to every event we had. It was so much fun! We went to some fun restaurants downtown, including Sandra Bullock's BESS Bistro and the amaaazing Hopdoddy Burger Bar on South Congress.

The Legend of Lilly

I would like to dedicate this in honor of iconic fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau, who passed away today. For those of you who do not know who/what Lilly is, let me just tell you, it's a big deal. 

A brief history: Her schoolmate Jacqueline Kennedy, while first lady, was photographed wearing one of Pulitzer's dresses -- and made her a star. How awesome is that?

Her bright, colorful patterns included everything from roses to sailboats and from alligators to shrimp! One of my roommates swears by Lilly. We both gush over all of the new patterns (and the old ones too) together, and we've decided that Lilly is always a classy choice. 

So, in leu of today, I would like to post all of my paintings that were inspired by Lilly herself. Thank you so much for making the world a brighter - and more colorful! - place. I hope that one day I will make a positive impact on the world by doing something I love, just as she has.

a creation of mine for sarah jerome

the colors in this canvas were inspired by lilly; she always knew how to pair pink and green so perfectly
