Do you...

Etsy?
If you don't you should.

What the heck is Etsy? It's a place to buy all things handmade...and I'm not talking about stuff you see at your local arts and crafts fair. I am talking about crazy good stuff!

Like:
All natural Boo-boo packs
Wine bottle gone cheese plate (don't you dare buy this one b/c I am)
Monsters named Henry
Love love for $22
No more Ziploc baggies
Charlie's next onesie

I could go on, but it's getting late.
It's Etsy; it's free to sign up; it's full of great stuff made by creative folks, like me, who are sharing their talent and trying to make a little money.

Now, back to my painting...

New LOOK

My blog and my Etsy shop have gotten a little face lift...hope you like!

I Love Custom Orders

This is a custom order I am currently working on for a nursery.


Please remember I love creating custom orders -
I can paint something to coordinate with your color scheme or bedding.

Face Lift, Facebook, and Follow Me

I am going to be changing up my blog just a little and give it a little face lift. We'll see how it goes and it will continue to evolve until it's just right. I don't like to be overwhelmed with information when I visit blogs/sites. I want to have the right info for viewers questions, and I want to cover all the bases. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them (email information over there under "How can I get one?" ------------------------------->).

I have set up a fan page on Facebook for Paint Me a Picture. If you are not already, you can become a fan by clicking on the link above this post. The more fans the better! If you are a fan on Facebook you will have chances to win free paintings and opportunities for discounted orders. Also, I will keep my fans up to date on events where I will be selling my paintings.

As you see I don't have many followers (smiling). Are followers on blogs really necessary? I don't know, I follow a few of my friends blogs, but I haven't really branched out there in the blogger follower community myself. However, I am going to start working on that, and I encourage you to as well.

From tank tops to flowers...


I don't like to throw things away...I'd much rather donate them or find a way to reuse them.
Thanks to one of my favorite items on Etsy I got the idea to reuse some tank tops I was going to send on their way to Goodwill. I am sure Goodwill has enough clothes and rather than them ending up in a landfill they will end up on one of my next projects!
Stay tuned for the tank tops turned flowers. If it works there will be more recycled/reused material showing up.

Pretty AND Pink


My new favorite design. This can be personalized with your initial or created without one.
Black and white is pretty and pink.

Initially...


Your initial here [ ].
Who knew this random design would be such a hit?
16 x 20 for $30
You choose the colors (background, design, & font)
and font style,
and I let the paint brush do the design.

Sugar & Spice...this was nice!

Sugar and spice and everything nice,
that's what girls are made of...and butterflies too of course!


Yay! I received my first custom order on Etsy.
I have also been busy with some local orders and will be posting those projects soon.
