babies, babies, babies! right before the sycamore pumpkin fest show, i had the total honor of getting to design + create two very lovely special delivery canvases for new babies! both were for sweet little girls, so you can imagine how much fun i had getting creative with these!
my first one i had the joy of creating was for a dear, dear friend of mine, who had an adorable little girl this spring! being a great friend, i was able to get a peek at this sweet girl’s bedding + nursery colors….and when i started sketching, i knew i have the most perfect patterned paper that had to be added to his piece! (note: if you know anyone who spends a lot of time in michaels or hobby lobby and is one of those people who hoards crafty supplies, that’s me. i find papers that are cool + cute, and i buy them….knowing someday i’ll use it. well, never make fun friends, because this was one of those projects where a piece of paper i’d had for probably two years was finally used!) and, isn’t her name just completely divine??
and, the lovely, lovely second one i had the honor of making was for a little girl who was born just a couple of weeks ago! but, her auntie got a hold of me before she was even born, and we had colors, patterns, and theme down….so all we needed to finish the piece was her sweet name, birthday, and stats! this one was so fun with the butterfly theme….i totally got inspired to do something three-dimensional, and with a little texture on the wings! isn’t this so fun?!?
i’m always so touched when i am invited to have one of my little pieces adorn a new baby’s nursery…i know how much that birth day, and all that goes into it means to a mama + daddy, and to be able to create a meaningful keepsake for those babes is such a big deal to me. i’m just so flattered that i’m invited to be part of something so important.
hope you loved these….and if you know someone with a baby on the way, let me know!
