Owl Love U Forever!

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.

Valentine's Day Paintings

Keep your eyes "peeled" for some fun Valentine's Day paintings soon. This will be a set you can purchase together or separately, but there will be others to come as well!


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!

Check Out My New Website

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. 

I've got to work on getting a domain name, but for now click on the link above or go to 

Don't worry, I will be keeping my blog and posting here as well!

Thanks guys!

I still need to work on the lettering a bit, but this one is almost done.

Four new designs offering damask flowers. You can choose your range of colors, flowers, and what you would like in the center such as a scripture or phrase.

Done and Delivered (for the most part)

Damask design on a 24x36 inch canvas

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.

Going to The Smyrna, TN

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.
