This is a 4 part (each canvas 9X12) painting of a lime green turtle on navy and white striped background. I painted this for a good friend/ cousin my marriage, who is going to hang this in her little boy's nursery. Her bedding is from www.gap.com and is called giggle. I can't wait to see it once it is hung!

Here are a few more samples of eyelet underwear/ diaper covers that can be worn everyday anytime of year! These were so much fun to paint! I wish I had someone at home to wear these!!! These all run size 1-5 as well and can be machine washed.

Here are a couple of photos of my most recent hand painted pillow covers. I did these two for a friend of mine who is currently transforming the "man room" into the "family room!" I think these 20"X20" pillows will be the perfect "man's touch" left in the room after the transformation! These pillow covers are only $28.00-what a deal!

This a 20X24 inch painting I did for a friend of mine to hang in her son's nursery. This painting has a solid medium brown background with a medium turquoise monkey. I think it will be so cut in the nursery to go with her adorable animal bedding.
These two paintings above will be hung in a grouping of four on the wall of her son's nursery. Each canvas is 8X10 and when hung together each make up a pig and an elephant. I think these will be super cute as well and can be used even in a big boy room when he outgrows his nursery!

Whoa!!! September has come and gone and October is halfway over!!! My goodness, I cannot believe I have not updated in so long! I have been busy painting but not so busy taking pictures of my work!!!! I tend to paint and deliver... no time in the day for snapping photos. I am working on three that I will promise to photograph and then off to work on some more pillow covers. I am still waiting for my tote bags to arrive in the mail and then I can get cranking on those as well. Stay tuned...pics to come, I promise!

I hate when I lose my train of thought! I was just thinking of what I wanted to post and now I've lost it....oh, I think I wanted to add my etsy info on here. I need to figure out how to add that link to this blog but for the meantime you can check out my things on etsy at wayway123-that's my shop's name. I am obsessed with etsy.com!!!! The people selling on there are so talented! Good way to spend some extra time, if you have time to kill that is!!! I have just painted another pillow cover and am letting it dry before I take any more pictures. There will be pictures to come this week.

This is the "chick" flour sack wrap. To be used as a swaddling blanket for a baby, a lightweight blanket or oversized burp cloth. This can also be used as a hand towel in the kitchen. The dimensions of this cloth are 34X39 inches.
This is the "swine" flour sack wrap. The dimensions of this cloth are 28X32 inches.
"Swine Standoff" pillow cover measures 18X18 inches and is the perfect throw pillow for a chair, sofa or bed!
Been a week!!!! I am really slacking on the blogging front!!! I am waiting for the dew to dry and I am going to go outside and photograph my latest painting (pillow)..."swine standoff." My friend Margeaux has agreed to sew canvas pillow covers for me to paint. The first one I have finished is the one I will have photographed today. It is a 20X20 pillow cover. She is also making me a few that are 18X18 and one that is 12X16-perfect baby pillow size. I am really hoping that these will be a hit!!! The idea is you can throw he anywhere-chair/ sofa/ bed/ crib. I haven't some up with a price yet but I will keep ya posted!!!
I have also painted a few cotton flour sacks that are the perfect size and weight for a swaddling blanket/ lightweight cover for the stroller/ or a burp cloth throw. No children...... you could use these as decorative kitchen towels. If any spills should occur, they are very fast drying because of how thin they are! Pictures on the way... nap time can't come soon enough!!!!!

"Zig Zag" hand painted 13X13X3 tote bag. The perfect beach bag or library bag!!! I use mine to tote everything from headphones and water bottles to the gym, as well as my son's snack and diapers! Throw it in the wash and let air dry for best results. Hot iron if sensitive to wrinkling!!!!
"Tree Frog Jump" is a 13X13X3 hand painted tote bag.
"Elephant Stampede" is a hand painted 13X13X3 tote bag.
"Trio of Apples" hand painted 13X13X3 tote bag.
Pair o' Cherry hand painted tote 13X13X3. Perfect for you or your precious little girl!
Ok, so I finally took some more pictures of my most recent hand painted totes. Boy, it is H-O-T outside today. August heat in South Carolina is brutal, but I thought the lighting was best outside to capture the crisp color of each bag. They are all over the board as far as designs go! I am always trying to think of something new to do. As you know, I am always open for suggestions, after all, custom pieces are kind of my thing!!!! Hope you like what you see....

My two year old just moved into a big boy bed about two weeks ago and I am just starting to get it all together! The painting hanging above his bed was one of my very first blue chickadee creations! I have always loved this one!
This is my latest "get hooked" tote bag I painted a week or so ago and I have since used it everyday as a carryall for my son's things. This tote has been the perfect size (13X13X3) for throwing a quick snack/ diaper/ wipes in and hit the road!
