2009 Recap . . .

What a year it was!

It was a year that alot of babies were born. {And I do mean alot!}


Throughout the year, I received alot of pictures of babies with their paintings {can't thank you enough!}


This year also provided me a few more professional shots on my website. {Just makes the home page that much better!}


2009 was the year that many small words canvases were given as gifts for birthdays . . .


and as gifts at baby showers . . .


This was the year that many families celebrated joyous reunions {and just happened to really want a set of canvases to remind them of the happy occasion!}


All through the year, I did enjoy opening up emails to see pictures of small words canvases hanging on the walls over cribs, . . .


over many changing tables, . . .


over some incredibly, cute, decorative tables, . . .


and over {my fav-O-rite kind} cutie, children's tables!


And the absolute best EVER thing about 2009 . . .

all of you that sent me emails and small notes expressing what kind of inspiration you got from the blog! The boundaries you stepped over and the goals you reached left me speechless!


I did NOT paint these canvases{in the picture above or below,} but aren't they fantastic! They told me "thank you" for the inspiration! Crazy ladies - I need to thank YOU! That is my inspiration!

Bless each and everyone of your pea picking hearts! Looking forward to 2010!

I have loved looking at each of your new creations! Unfortunately, the Lord did not give me too much creativity. I mean, my mind is really creative, it's getting it down through my fingertips. Somehow it never turns out as I visualized it. But you on the other hand - great stuff!

What a fantastic post. I, too, find your work inspiring. You are so talented and creative, but I also enjoy seeing how you manage to balance it all. Best of luck to you in 2010!

Awesome idea for teachers! Mmmm. I'll have to think this one over. I don't think I can pull it off myself.
Thanks for the Chrsitmas card. It's hanging on our "wall of fame" in the hallway, and will be there all year as long as the 8 sets of fingers don't pull it down and destroy it. 80 fingers... What are my chances that it'll make it to next Christmas when I change them over? I'll have to mull that one over too. :) Have a great week, and I hope you can get caught up soon.
I want to place an order for my lil' girls room, and get one for my lil' boys as well. Should I wait to order till you are accepting more or should I get in line and not expect anything till further notice? Let me know?

Kim, I have loved reading your blog this year! Can't wait to see what happens in 2010. I emailed you about my order. Anytime you can get back to me is fine. I hope you can get your new office room straightened out soon and your computer so we can see some more pics!! Happy New Year!!!!
