Where have I been!?

**updated** The "B" has found a home! Thanks friends! I really didn't think anyone would want it! I need to start thinking outside the box! I might have some more "practice" stuff around here! I'll keep you all posted.

I really had no clue it had been so long since I posted?! Bet you all think I got a lot done since I didn't post? haha - yea, I wish! I really have no idea where I've been, except the daily grind! And I've really not alot to say today?!

Okay, give me a minute and once I get going I'm sure I will!

I have only a few minutes to do this post - I have to wake up my kids from nap {early} and get them ready to go to a birthday party at "Monkey Joe's" {what a name?} - a bounce place and Hudson is actually excited?! I'm shocked - normally he would scream at me, "No Monkey Joe's" only because he has no idea what it is! But I showed them all pictures, we have talked about, etc . . . I'll let you all know how it goes! I'm excited {somewhat} but dreading it at the same time. You never know with this bunch!!


So, how funny does my almost 16 month old look with NO TEETH!? I know you think you might see something on top - don't fool yourself - it's nothing! Not a single tooth bud to be felt!?! Crazy - I tell ya'! And yes, this is the "new" face when she smiles for the camera - she "wants" the flash on! And gets upset if it isn't? Weird - I know!


Anybody like this "B" . . . enough to own it?? I tried a new aging technique {practicing} and it really darkened up the green. Alot more than I wanted. There is nothing wrong with the painting, it's just not the "sage" color I offer - more of an "olive" green. The accent is gold on the brown swirls.


It's packaged and ready to go! If anyone wants it - please email me - I'll offer it up to the first person who responds! {I don't know why I said that - no one might want it!}


I package the classic collection up a little different than the other paintings. I try to give it more of a grown-up look and not so cutesy as my other packaging. Sooooo, basically the "B" you see above would be a great gift if you don't "need" it . . . Christmas is around the corner! For Pete's sake, Hobby Lobby has already started setting Christmas stuff out!

I'm really about out of time! So in closing. I'll leave you with this . . .


Why yes - that is a sneaky peek! I'm so glad I could paint my dot roses - it's been awhile and I love them so! Uhmm, and yes that is the same stripes from these paintings!

Monkey Joe's here we come!

I can tell from the sneakpeek that I already love the next one, graphic stripes with a frilly churly letter...yummy!
and I laughed out loud at Ems face, I couldn't help but channel my great-grandmother-in-law when she doesn't have her dentures in~

Your daughter is too cute. I love the "B" and think it would look great in my new house! Let me know if it's still available!

I wish there was a "B" in my name anywhere. Or if a friend had a "B". Why couldn't you "mess up" a "C" or a "L"????? I like the color!!

Debbie said...

DD is Bethany...soon to be engaged to Brian (shhh she doesn't know that yet) Although their last name will be with an A

I love the B, too! I'm not the first to respond, though, so I'm sure it's gone...

My last name will start with a B and then there is my BB. haha
Looks like i might have just missed out on it.
Love it though! It would've gone great in my home ;)

Leslie said...

Matt, Allison and Jade said...

I'm glad you are back. It is funny seeing Emsley without any teeth...Jade at 12 at her first birthday{she was teething and crabby her whole first year}.

I love the B someone will be lucky to have it!

Look at that sweet little toothless face. She is a doll! Don't worry mama.. they'll come in eventually. I happen to LOVE the B.. glad someone else found a use for it. Monkey Joe's sounds like a fun place.

Sallie said...

Yes, I would love the B!

I already bought one for me, and my new married son and wife love it and would love one for themselves!

Im sure I"m too late!

I love your work! You are awesomely talented!

April said...

love the blue lamps...I have all kinds of ideas for them, can't wait to see what you do.
my last name starts with B but I am 105% sure the opps painting is taken but I am offering to take it off your hands if the others don't work out.
I've looked at your site and think the work you do is great. I would have never thought to offer matching the bedding.

just found your site today and saw this post ... and I am sure I am way too late for the "B" painting. My last name is Burke, would be perfect for our living room. Love your art work, by the way. How did you learn how to paint with the business background? :-)
