Here is a new Valentine's painting I'm offering. The fun things about this one, like most of my paintings, is that it can be customized. You can choose colors, lettering (i.e. family name, etc...), and add "lil' owls" if you want to make for your family versus for your spouse or significant other. Owls, feathers, nose, and leaves are shaped like hearts to really make it fun for Valentine's Day! Last, this original is a 9x12 inch canvas and I'm offer it for $30 instead of the normal $35 for this size, BUT you can get it larger or smaller to fit your needs and budget! If you want more than one so you can give as gifts, there is a discount for that as well. These will be offered directly from me, but also I plan to have some available at Simply Southern Marketplace in Murfreesboro, TN and maybe a variation at The Market in Smyrna, TN.

Ok, so I have been browsing patterns and fabric this evening to try to get some good ready to purchase painting ideas. So, I decided to ask you guys what kinds of paintings you would like or buy for your own home... I'm taking any and all ideas from now until Dec 31st and whoever has the best idea (in my opinion :) ), will win a 9x12 inch painting with your idea on it! Share with your friends too. You can post your idea here or on FB. Thanks and I look forward to hearing your ideas!
NOTE: It does not have to be a pattern, I just wanted to share these pretty ones!

Go see my new website I have been working on that is a little more user-friendly than a blog. A blog is great and has served me well, but this way you can see any picture at any time in the gallery, find info quickly about ordering, and connect to Initial Designs on almost any network with the click of a button.
Don't worry, I will be keeping my blog and posting here as well!

Serene beach scene with a poem in the middle on 16x20

This one has a name painted on the jersey, but it was for a gift so I will re-post later with name. This is an 8x10 inch canvas
Designed to match above canvas because the boys share a room; will post again later with name.
This also has a name in the center and is for the lil' sister of the boys above.

Here's what my dining room table looked like last Tuesday and then all these got finished up Wednesday and delivered to The Market in Smyrna, TN for sale! I also have some of my custom work up there as well for people to see and they can order from. All these pieces can be re-designed and customized as well, but these were ready to sell. Each piece has a coordinating ribbon attached as a hanging option. These are either an 11x14 inch canvas for $38 or 8x10 for $32.

This one will say, "With God, Lyla, All things are Possible" when it's done.
These 8x8 inch picture frames can be designed for pretty much anything. They are great for inexpensive teacher gifts, for you child's room to match any decor, or even for yearly school pics because I can write the year, name or whatever you want! $12 each or two for $20.
These are fun for almost any reason as well. Many shapes are available as well. This one was designed to look like an ornament to note this year's Christmas for a family.

Bella Vista at HOME is an awesome fabric store plus much more right off the square in Murfreesboro, TN. This dynamic duo, mother and daughter team, Agnes and Cathy, are so very sweet and have the talent to match. They are pros when it comes to window treatments, bedding, and anything else you would want to spruce up your decor! They were even featured on TLC for a bedroom design they created! I delivered these 3 pieces as examples about a week and a half ago. If you live in or around Murfreesboro, TN, please go by and meet them and say hello...prepare to be amazed!!
