Lego Star Wars Fans Rejoice!

INTRODUCING THE LEGO STAR WARS COMIC BOOK BIRTHDAY INVITE: When my friend Christine from Pure Joy Events asked me to design a Lego Star Wars Birthday invitation for her son, I jumped at the opportunity! She's a fantastic party planner. I've been meaning to design a Star Wars Birthday Collection ever since I had a Star Wars party for my son when he turned 5 (that was 4 years ago) so this was finally my chance to do it. Christine emailed me a story draft that her husband wrote and I added a bit of humor. I shot the whole thing using my kids' lego collection. And VIOLA! A Lego Star Wars Comic Book masterpiece! Stay tuned for the rest of the party collection AND to see What Christine dreams up for her son's party!

Would your son love to have a Lego Star Wars Birthday Party? CLICK HERE to get this Invite!
That's Christine's son who's turning 5, in the picture above. I will customize the whole comic book for any birthday boy (or girl) who buys this invite. The story is simple but cute and all leads up to the big reveal— a Star Wars Lego Builders Birthday Party! Woohoo!

FYI, that's my 6 year old's hands holding the comic book in all the images above. Am I biased or could he become a professional hand model? He's a natural! Like George Costanza on Seinfeld. Hmmm. Maybe I should just bag this whole etsy thing and concentrate on breaking my son into the hand modeling business. Food for thought while I wait for my Star Wars Comic Book orders to start pouring in anyway.

A Few Custom Painted Homes— Mixed Media

Just finished this painting the other day for a repeat customer. It's for her in-laws in Tennessee. Now that's a lot of brick! I decided to cut individual bricks out of book pages for the brick trim and placed them with molding paste to create depth. As for the rest of the brick, I painted it. I also used book pages for the tree leaves and cut canvas into little squares for the shingle roof.

It was packed with care and shipped just in time for Christmas!

I painted this little bungalow for my friend Sarah. Her sweet husband surprised her with it for her birthday on the 16th (which happens to be the same as mine!).

A Holiday Craft Workshop!

 THESE LITTLE ELVES have been busy making a few creative things with me. I hosted a Holiday Craft Workshop last week and I must say, it was a smashing success!





 Thanks to my sister Reba and niece Kaylee for opening their home and inviting friends.

And a special thanks to my best friends in the whole world for helping me put this workshop together! I love you guys! Cheers to you!

Pluto Returns!

I just went upstairs to check on the boys before turning in for the night and look who I found at their window! Well, I'll be! Is it that time of year again already? Welcome back Pluto! Long time no see. I know two boys who will be happy to see you!
