What's this world coming to? Two posts in one day you say?
Yes, two posts in one day. I taught a painting class this morning and wanted to share those photos with you.




We painted the Holiday Placemats on canvas board. When you back them with felt or cork and seal the canvas they make the perfect holiday placemat!









Melanie



Nicole




Nicole was showing me her finger as she stuck it right in the corner of her wet holly leaves and berries.














Nicole's daughter - Hallie Zoe
She was sick and didn't go to school ~ I couldn't let her just sit there and watch ~ so she joined in and painted with us.
















Mary Jo











We've been asked many times and here they finally are ~ handpainted personalized canvases. We'll list them in our ETSY store soon but if you are interested in having one just email me at mandedesigns@ourpaintedgifts.com Change the color combinations, name or monogram initials, polka dots or stripes, etc. The canvas shown are 16x20 gallery wrapped canvas so there are no staples on the sides. You can either frame it or hang it like it is as the sides are painted as well. We'll be adding some personalized ornaments to our Etsy store this week as well so make sure to check it out often for new additions.















EDIT: I took pictures of these two when they were still wet - so you'll see a sheen under Gabby's name and on the letters below that are not there when dry.
















We had some much needed rain today! I'm not sure how much we got but it rained HARD! and we sure did need it here in Georgia. Hope N. Ga. got double what we did today as they are really hurting for rain in that part of the state.
I'm so excited about bowling tomorrow. I haven't been in two weeks because of my cold and last week because of Thanksgiving.
Have a fabulous week!
Sandy
