As I promised...

This post comes as promised! Butterfly Grace turned 3, and here is her painting:

From what I understand, it is hanging on her wall opposite of a digital print I made for her before she was even born! I love this little girl so much.

While I was at it, I decided to make one for my most favorite person in this world --
my gorgeous, funky, compassionate sister Sarah

Jelmi and Angelo got married in Hawaii on May 1, and I had an awesome time putting together these scroll invitations. I bought the bamboo and split and glued it around the invite. Then, I made custom labels to go around the tube mailers. They turned out so nice!

Whitney gets married SO soon! Her bridal shower invites used her wedding colors:

 All of her other fun wedding pieces will be making an appearance on the blog soon enough :)
Have a lovely evening!


red on turquoise

One of my favorite color combinations!

Meghan had spotted a red-and-turquoise poppy painting at Homegoods, but didn't get to it in time. The last painting in her local area had been sold, but she loved the color contrast so much, she knew she had to have it. I tried to recreate the look with the colors and the flowers she loved from the Homegoods original, without ever having seen it myself, and I think it turned out lovely!

The actual painting is extremely "bumpy," with lots of textures --
one of the many things I love about using a palette knife.

So, without further adieu, here it is:

I'll have to get Meghan to send me a picture of it hanging on the wall of her new home.
At 3ft x 2ft, it's sure to make quite the statement!

In related news, Grace's 3rd birthday was May 1, and so Auntie Em just HAD to paint her a little something special for her purple-and-green big girl room! Here she is receiving it from me on her big day:

Check back to see the painting in all its glory. For now, you can hang out with this post for my past birthday gifts for Grace and her little brother, Jack.

My mom requested some butterflies for Mother's Day, so I painted a couple of those for her on 8x10 canvases. Check back for those as well.

I hope you are all as EXCITED for this lovely weather as I am. I didn't think it would ever get here. In honor of this gorgeous spring, I leave you with my new wreath. I must be in a turquoise phase.

Email me at for any requests.
I'm always full of ideas :)
