Wednesday, February 25, 2009 on Etsy!

1-2-3! Here's my latest classic canvas in the 8x8 size. I've listed it on my Etsy check it out! I like the color combo on this one...I think it could work for a girl's or boy's nursery/bedroom. Don't forget, I can always create a custom order for you!

So, last night I tried my hand at creating an Alchemy Request on Etsy...and I have to tell you...this could become an addiction! If you ever are having trouble thinking of gifts for anybody...just go to Etsy and fill out a request. I have had so many responses with such great ideas! I am going to have a hard time deciding! The request I made was for a birthday gift for my if any of you fellow Etsians happen to stumble upon my blog, please click here and send me your ideas! I'd love to see them!

As Dorothy Says...

There's no place like home! So here's it is...I hope you like it! It was fun to make...and hopefully it will help raise some money for the Birmingham Children's Theater. I think I'll be working on some St. Patrick's day stuff keep an eye out for some new art!

A little glimpse...

Okay, here are a couple of photos to give you a tiny glimpse of my latest painting! This one is a little different than what I usually do...which made it a lot of fun to create! I am donating it to the Birmingham Children's Theater, and the theme of the event is "A Night in Oz." So I tried to incorporate a little bit of the theme into the painting. Can't wait to show you all the rest tomorrow!

My name is Kelly, and I am a Shopaholic!

It's been a while! Well, I made a deal with my very best friend that we wouldn't see Confessions of a Shopaholic unless we went together. We both read all the books, and scarily enough, we could completely relate! So, of course I had to a pay her a visit. We saw it, and LOVED it! (Of course, I really didn't think there was much of a chance that I wasn't going to love it!) It's a great girly movie, and I highly recommend it!

Here are some photos of the Hand Painted Wooden can find more examples in my Etsy shop, so be sure to check them out! If you would like to order 3 or more letters, I offer a discounted rate. So please, don't hesitate to ask! All letters are made to order, so if you have a color scheme or design in mind just let me know. (Sorry, the photos aren't that great!)

I am also finishing up a painting that's being donated to the Birmingham Children's Theater, so I'll be sure to post some photos soon! I decided to go with the "there's no place like home theme," since the fundraiser's theme is "A Night in Oz." Can't wait to show you!

Flower Swap!

Today I went to my first ever Flower Swap! This event takes place every year around Valentine's Day, and the purpose is to come home with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I just had a blast! I brought yellow tulips to the flower swap, and came home with something completely different. So here is the result...I'm no florist...but I think they turned out pretty good for a first time bouquet maker!

So, if you are looking for ideas for a fun get together with your friends for Valentine's Day, a Flower Swap is a great idea! Everyone gets to create their very own bouquet!

I just love...

Etsy! I just can't believe that I didn't know about this website until a few months ago! I've been missing out on entire world of fabulous things! So, I wanted to share a photo of my latest purchase...because I just really love it! It's this great chunky charm bracelet by JenJewelry. Love it!

Well, I am about to begin a painting to donate to the Birmingham Children's Theater. They are having a fundraiser at the end of this month, and I was really excited that a fellow Etsian asked if I would be willing to donate a piece of art! The theme of the fundraiser is "A Night in Oz" so I was thinking of incorporating something from the Wizard of Oz into my painting. Well, I am a little stuck on a quote or phrase I'd like to use. But, the first idea I had was "There's No Place Like Home" if anyone has any great ideas, I'd love to hear them!

I'm also working on a new painting right now...and hopefully I will have some photos to share tomorrow! I'll be in the Etsy Children's Showcase this keep an eye out for me!
