This was a gift for my sister in law who is ready to have a baby girl anytime now. She already had something similiar in her son, Charlie's room and since she is having a girl this time, she wanted to have the same pieces for Kate. I created a girly version of the same frame that reads, "Our home has been enlarged by 2 feet". Perfect for two little footprints on the bottom right corner. I also made two plaques - one for a handprint and one for a footprint. I was very happy with how they turned out and I always say, since I have two boys, that I love doing girl stuff!

If you are interested, let me know. I can make these for the little person in your life, too.

And The Winner Is....

Good morning. I guess our boys are getting older because we were actually able to sleep in this morning...

Before I reveal who the winner of the giveaway is, I wanted to say why I think my mom is the best. Ever since I can remember, she has always been a giver. She taught me over the years what serving others is all about. She has been battling breast cancer for over 10 years now and the doctors recently stopped treatment because of the damage it's done to her kidneys. She still makes sure she is there to help in any way that she can. Whether it is helping someone move, babysitting their children, shopping for birthdays or just a greeting card to let someone know that she cares. She is amazingly strong and brave and most of all loving. I'm so blessed to have had her in my life.

Ok, now for the winner...

Sandy at God Speaks Today. Congrats, Sandy! Even though you left two comments, I only submitted your name once. I guess this canvas was meant to be your's.

Thank you everyone for your comments. Please visit me next month for another giveaway and in the meantime, go hug your mom!

Bunnies, Bunnies Everywhere

I've just met a dear mom on Etsy who has two boys, just like yours truly. Her youngest is turning 2 this week and he's having a bunny theme birthday party. Since this weekend is Easter, she also ordered an Easter frame. These two frames were so fun to make and I think they went over pretty well with mom. Happy Bunny Birthday, Cooper!

A Giveaway for Mother's Day

Hey Moms! Today is the joyous day that I announce what I'm giving away this month. I really wanted to do something "Eastery", but it wouldn't get to you in time for Easter. So after much thought, I whipped up this adorable 8x10 canvas for Mom. What a great gift this original piece of art would make. Since the deadline to enter this giveaway is this Saturday, you will have plenty of time to make your decision. Hmmm, should I give this to mom or keep it for myself?

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and tell me what makes your mom the best. That's it. You will be entered automatically. You can enter until midnight Friday night and I'll announce the winner Saturday morning after I have my coffee.

Good luck!

And You Know What Day Tomorrow Is....

I'm "hard at work" planning and creating a special little something for my giveaway this week. If you remember, last month I started Giveaway Day on the first Tuesday of the month. Come back tomorrow for the reveal and details on how you can win.

Springtime fun!

This is some stuff I did before our vacation this past weekend. This frame matches the bedding of a "soon to be born" Harrison. Gotta love that name!

Don't forget that April 7th is the first Tuesday of the month. I will be announcing the prize for Giveaway Day.

Mother's Day is Sunday, May 10th. If you want to order something for your mom, please contact me before April 30th. I want to be sure to have enough time to complete your gift.
