Have a cooler summer with Bkrafty!

Since summer is officially here, I thought I would share some of my coolers with y'all. They're perfect for all summer activities from going to those never ending baseball tournaments to having a backyard barbecue. My favorite ones to do are Houston Texans coolers! If you have any designs you want me to paint on one for you, send me a message and we can come up with one just for you.

Here is the Houston Texans themed cooler I did for the Hudson family. I personalized by writing their names and painting special sides dedicated to their favorite players. The part I liked the best was the picture of the stadium I painted! It's based on a picture taken of Reliant Stadium before the Texans played their first playoff game. 

Santa helped me deliver it to these cuties!!! I absolutely love this picture. How adorable are they?

This one is also a Houston Texans cooler, but with a girly twist! 

This cooler is perfect for a beach weekend!

This cooler is a combination of LSU and the New Orleans Saints. I loved incorporating traditions from each of the teams and combining them into one cooler.

More Texans coolers! What can I say? I love the Texans.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Good morning, blogging word! Here's a little inspiration for today! I made this canvas this past week for Temi, a super sweet girl who has recruited tons of Arkansas orders for me. Temi, you are awesome! I can't wait to finish your last canvas and send them your way!

How Great Thou Art

Happy Sunday, y'all! So today I'm sharing one of my latest canvases I did for Kathryn, another girl at UT! She ordered it from me for Mothers Day, and I thought that was so sweet. I don't think it's a secret that I LOVE this print, and I am always down to paint it. After I posted it on my Instagram account, one of my good friends from high school texted me saying that she made the picture the background on her phone. I was so honored! That sounds a little cheesy, but it really did make me smile (thank you Veronica!)

This weekend I went to see my friend Kaitlin, and her mom was so excited to learn about my painting hobby. Kaitlin has a dresser that she wants painted in a fun, colorful design, so I'm going to paint it for her! Watch out y'all. New product line coming through. Seriously though, I am going to have WAY too much fun with this.

That's all for now, but keep checking my ETSY page (link on the right side of the page) and my Instagram account (link in top righthand of page) for more canvases, coolers, and other fun things. Thank you everyone for your continued love and support!

Sweet Summertime

lilly inspired canvas
WOW! Summer is here! Time for some weekend beach trips and snow cone dates! I'm so excited. I forced myself to take a break from blogging and painting so that I could focus on my finals and stuff, but now summer is here! I need to catch y'all up on some fun stuff.

 I saw NEEDTOBREATHE (all caps necessary because they were SO awesome) with my friend Kaitlin! I really wanted to see them last year because they were in town on my birthday, but I couldn't go. They were so fantastic, and Drew & Ellie Holcomb opened up for them. They are the cutest thing. Ellie has an amazing voice, and Kaitlin and I were both just in awe of how cute they were together. We eventually made our way to the front row for the concert, and got some great pictures! I even ran into one of my cousins!

ran into my cousin caroline!

My lovely friends from Italian class and I had to make a video for our last big project. It was so funny and awkward, and I am going to miss being in class with them so much next year! There are those really uncomfortable classes where no one talks to each other, but this was definitely not one of those classes. We became such great friends this semester! From struggling with Centro to suffering through some very uncomfortable Italian films to flat tires and fajita nights and so much more!! I love you all ragazze! Ciao!

bellloooo bello impossibileee
One of my best nights from the last two weeks was a formal I went to. It was a BLAST. We all had so much fun dancin' and stuff...although we were a bit bitter when the DJ refused to play Justin Bieber at the end.

Prom Crashers

 So my best friend Erika and I decided that we would surprise our "bebes" as we call them for their prom! We both came home that weekend and surprised them while they were taking their pictures! They all looked so pretty! We were both debating on whether or not we were just going to put on a sparkly dress and crash the prom, too...but we decided (reluctantly) against it. 

the prom crashers (well...prom pictures anyway)

Katie, Rocky, and Kaya were so surprised! We took like 500 pictures for them, like we were worse than the parents. Their dresses were so beautiful!

just a little something I thought went with the post!

just me and my bestie!
