what an amazing ride this holiday season has been for my little etsy store! i can’t even describe how wonderful it has been….and how much true love i have felt for my work + what i do! this will be the first of two special posts about two very special (surprise!) projects that i was asked to do for re-nest fans’ loved ones for the holidays! to say that i was honored is an understatement!
the first up…a dear friend of mine (and huge re-nest supporter!) asked me a bit ago to do a custom framed print for her husband, who is a massive fan of ole miss (that would the university of mississippi to those of us not familiar!) not only is he a massive fan, but he’s also an alumni, which i think is totally cool! so, we got to work….

my dear friend mentioned to me that she’d like the piece to read “my heart belongs to oxford” and of course, be in the school colors of red and dark blue with a dark brown frame to match their decor. no problem…i got to work putting together several layouts of ways we could go. everything included a cutout of the state of mississippi and different ways we could orient the text and colors we could use. so much fun!
we settled on a layout, and i got to work and finished up with what i think is a really lovely looking (and masculine) piece for this very special ole miss fan! and, the best part is that he loved it when he opened it on christmas! how special is that?!?!
