Christmas custom orders

So happy that I had a chance to work on some custom orders for Christmas.

Custom made greeting cards and two different trays were the gifts this year. The trays were gift wrapped with hope that the recipient would smile after seeing their personalized tray!

Christmas is over and gifts have been given

Some of the gifts I made this year...

Dad loves squirrels and mom loves her dog, so mixed media wall art was for them!

My friends love the movie, Twilight, and they received a hand-painted mug, along with a hand-sewn scarf and tote bag.

mixed media portraits

These just make me smile. Mya had a hard time watching me create these... It was like torture for her to smell the little biscuits I was gluing on. Let me know if you'd like a custom piece for your little critters.

Wine Tasting/Shop Boutique at Peace College

Tomorrow is a big event for me...and I am looking forward to it! I managed to switch with a co-worker at work so I could do this and I am so lucky it worked out. It will be nice to be back at Peace College, see old friends, teachers and hopefully sell some artwork. :)

So, I have a lot of friends with September birthdays.  I guess their parents partied hard on New Year's!

Recycled table was spray painted and given some love to put under the glass top.  A matching box was also given to keep any little goodies.

A journal for her journey- decorated an old journal with ribbons, spray paint and recycled papers.

Towel to lay on the beach...and keep your lotions and potions in the corner "pockets."

Wall art for an art studio.  "inspire" was the focus of this piece for my friends art room.

Custom Order: Tray and stationery

So happy that this piece will be a wedding gift for someone in Ireland!  Amy's Creative Corner has gone international.  :)
