I wish I was a little bit taller...

I decided to start painting growth charts after seeing all of the "sweet" ones that don't really fit my taste. I painted this one for my soon-to-be niece, McKenzie, to match her nursery. It might seem like a weird color combo here, but the room is absolutely precious. I'll post pix of it soon to show what we came up with.

This was my first chart to paint, obviously, and I've already learned from my mistakes. I know that this picture doesn't show it off very well, either, but I now know that I need to leave a blank field in the middle so that the child's name will show up better, or I can paint their name bigger.

I can custom paint the growth charts on canvas like traditional charts. However, I like painting on wood, so I painted this one on a piece of wood (I think it was pine). The size is 11 1/4" wide by 48" long. Once I decide on what I'm doing for ME's big girl room and "Little Dees'" nursery, I'll have more options to show.

Rock-a-bye, Baby

My sweet friend Lauren pointed out to me that I don't have any pictures of my rocking chair that I painted ME. I painted this chair for Miss Priss's Christmas present and enjoyed working on it every minute that I had. I hope to custom paint more chairs for your little rockers soon!

You gotta have Faith

I made this for a co-worker of mine and his baby girl, Faith. I wanted to show y'all that I can add embellishments to your wipe holder, too.
