I've entered a few blog contests since I started blogging, but I never really expected to win anything. A couple of weeks ago I entered Jennifer's contest for a personalized purse picture. You can imagine how shocked I was when I found out that I had actually won.
I had a tough decision to make: which one of my four kiddos would be the recipient of a piece of custom artwork??? I knew that Mickey Mouse wouldn't be interested--no pretty stuff for him! The little girls share a room together, so it wouldn't be fair if one had her name on the wall and the other one didn't. Bookworm was the child who really needed some artwork on her walls. Since her room makeover
a couple of months ago, we still haven't put anything up! I emailed Jennifer a picture of Bookworm's quilt to give her an idea of the room's color scheme. I had no idea what Jennifer would come up with, but I trusted her abilties. :-)
Just a few days later I received a carefully packed box in the mail. I couldn't wait to see what was inside. A sweet note from Jennifer was the first thing that caught my eye.
Underneath all that bubble wrap was Bookworm's personalized picture. We used one of those Command Hooks from 3M to hang it on her wall. Jennifer painted the canvas and then applied the purse using coordinating scrapbook paper. She added bows and a cute little button as accents.
Now, here's the part that you're not going to believe. Jennifer was able to perfectly coordinate her design with Bookworm's bedding. Are you ready to see the result?
Is that custom art or what?? It's a little hard to tell in this picture, but there are little flowers on the purse that match the flowers on quilt. The stripes matched perfectly, too! Jennifer did an unbelievable job. She is a very talented artist and has been painting some lovely pictures lately and posting them on her blog. Please take a moment to visit her and let her know what a fabulous job she did on Bookworm's purse picture.
Jennifer, thank you for sharing your talent with our family. Bookworm is thrilled to have something so wonderful on her wall. :-)
