Movin' to Texas ya' all!

Bye Bye little crafty bits and Hello New Braunfels, Texas! May 13th is the planned day of departure from sweet little NC to the Lone Star State. Amy's Creative Corner has cleaned out, packed up and is about to drive west! 

As you know, my business started a few years ago with a focus on...well...crafty bits. I made scarves, magnets, fabric coasters, etc. I accumulated SO much STUFF. No room for hoarders in Texas! So with a massive yard sale and items going here and there on Craigslist, I sold and Donated a bunch of my crafty bits. It was like a little piece (or many pieces) of me leaving... somewhat nostalgic and sad, but it was for the best. My focus is more concentrated now - pet portraits and some handmade gifts, but mostly painting portraits.

I feel good and excited about this, and a little nervous! I am so excited to see how my business may grow out there. Wish me luck!

Custom Pet Portraits and Gift Cards

Mother's Day is around the corner...May 12th! And for the Mama who loves her furry babies, a gift card would be a great gift idea. You can make the gift card out to be any size canvas. Find out more on my Etsy shop.

I have been getting a lot of requests for multiple pets on one canvas, which are so much fun to paint. Below is a large canvas, 30"x40" size canvas, which has four pets on it. The customer sent four different photos and I just combined them all together on one canvas. Here is more info on ordering one like this.

And some of you may recall my painting I did about a year ago that had a plott hound puppy and three little pigs in the back of an old Ford pickup truck. A customer asked to have their pup in a truck with the pigs and that is pictured below...what a fun project! Find out about a custom painting like this on my Etsy shop.
