Artwork for Nursery

I finally finished the artwork for my daughter's nursery!  I have been having major issues with sleeping (I read this is common during pregnancy!) and woke up at 4 am this morning and decided to finish the little girl's art!  I am in the homestretch now with this pregnancy and cannot wait to meet the little one:)

So here are the finished pieces!  We will be framing them in a white mat and white frame and displaying them horizontally across the wall.

The top and bottom artwork are 5 x 7 inches and the middle artwork is 8 x 10.  I hope it looks good!
Anyways...I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving!  So many things to be thankful for this year!  I definitely ate my share of stuffing, turkey and green bean casserole(my favorite!)  Now it is time to move on to the Christmas season!  Happy Holidays!

Scenes from a Baby Shower...

Well, I am all showered out!  Saturday my family and friends had a lovely shower for me at a Hunt and Polo club located in town (pictured above!)  and today some of my lovely friends at work put on a shower for me.  I am so spoiled!
Here are some of my favorite pictures:
My two lovely Grandmothers!
Fall-inspired Centerpieces...I totally did not go with the baby shower theme...not my style!
My bestie Jen (we have been bffs since 2nd grade!)
Another bestie of mine, Tiffany!

My adorable Mom:)

The husband holding "Baby's first soccer ball"...his new pride and joy!

The most adorable handmade card ever! Don't you love handmade cards:)

Well my due date is getting closer and closer, I hope the husband and I are prepared:)

50 Year Anniversary Commission

Wow!  2 posts in 2 days...I am on a roll:)  I just wanted to post a commissioned piece I just completed for a 50th wedding anniversary.  There still might be some tweaking to do but for the most part I think it is kind of fun and festive:)   It was only supposed to be in black and white which was super hard for me because I am a lover of all colors!  This is what I came up with:

It is 8 x 10 and will go in a white mat and black frame. 

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!  My family and friends are throwing me a shower tomorrow and I am pretty excited to see all of the fun stuff the little one will get:)  It is getting very close now!

A Little Pumpkin Carving....

Why hello!  I have been a horrible blogger as of sorry!  I hope all is well with you!  What have you been up to?  I have been getting ready for our new little addition and also have been busy with teaching and our art club.  Recently my school's art club carved 150 pumpkins to display in our downtown!  It was so fun and I felt like I was in Star's Hollow (the fictional town in my FAVORITE show the Gilmore Girls.) It was just so quaint!

Here are some of the pictures:
Just some of the pumpkins we carved.
Yay for Art Club!
Robot Pumpkin:  The masterpiece that my husband and brother created together.  It won 3rd place.

Hope you all had a lovely Halloween...I can't believe Thanksgiving is in 2 weeks!  I am so excited to eat LOTS of delicious food...yum!  I am already dreaming of green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and STUFFING!  What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?

Have a lovely evening and I will post soon!
