Oscar Car Wall Letters

Wall Letters- Cars, originally uploaded by ZeeBree.
In my recent project of doing Wall Letters to match Pottery Barn's Oscar Car bedding, I spent extra time getting the colors exactly right! It really makes a difference to have the actual bedding mailed to you, which is why I photographed the pillowcase with the letters, so you can see my matchy matchy! :)
I hope baby Jack loves his primary colored letters!!!

Wall letters- Pottery Barn Baby Boats

Nautical themes are very popular! Who would have thought? I just created these wall letters to match the sailboats, fish and ocean theme of the Pottery Barn Baby Boats Bedding.
Who says that nautical themes have to just be blue and Red?

My newest Nautical themed wall letters comes from a mom that is using this Freeport baby bedding, pictured here,  by Pottery Barn Kids.  While the design elements were very similar to others I have painted in the past, the different colored boats, and sails gave me a little more to play with. 

And here is the finished product! 
Thank you to Baby B's mom, for selecting me out of the many talented artists you can have chosen to paint these wall letters.  I hope Baby B loves them as much as I do! :)

Creative and Reuseable Baby Shower Gift Packaging

originally uploaded by ZeeBree.
With all the recent wall letters I have done, I was finally given the opportunity put them in a package for a baby shower gift. I purchased a small basket at a local arts and craft store (never leave home without a coupon), and carefully selected a basket that matched the baby's room decor. One of the worst things you could do, is to pick a random basket that doesn't match the room. Picking the right basket is very important. If it won't be used by the recipient, you might as well stick them in a cheap gift bag!

I added a small letter that was decoupaged with the same Peter Rabbit book and tied it into the bow. This is a very quick and easy solution to gift packaging and most of all, almost everything is re-usable. :)

Thanks for Reading! :)

Peter Rabbit Wooden Wall letters

A close friend of mine is expecting her first baby in a few weeks.  What do you get the woman that has everything?  Well, her nursery theme is Peter Rabbit, compete with the Pottery Barn Kids Peter Rabbit Nursery bedding.  From the moment  I saw her room, I knew exactly what I wanted to do for her baby shower.

I started off by finding a Peter Rabbit book on Ebay, that contained a lot of illustrations.  While it hurt me to rip apart this book, it was put to good use, and as you can see it was for a great cause. :)  I then decoupaged the pages to the letters, and applied coordinating paint to the edges to create a one-of-a-kind gift. 

Would you believe me if I told you that I have never seen my wall letters actually hanging on a wall? :)  Thank you to Riley's mom who sent me a picture of the finished product! 

Thanks for reading!

Nursery Wall letters- My latest projects

I was contacted by a fellow MA resident whom stumbled upon this blog and contacted me paint wall letters for her 2 children, Joseph and Alana.  We found a mutual meeting spot and she gave me a blanket from Alana's Penelope Nursery Bedding Set from Pottery Barn, and a sham from Joseph's JoJo Designs 9-Piece Baby Crib Bedding Set - Come Sail Away Nautical.   What a treat it was to have a visual  I could refer to while I was mixing my colors.

Getting Clues from Baby registries- Nursery Decor- Wall letters

I get very excited when I have a new project, especially when I am attempting to do something I haven't done before. The person that contacted me was looking for a creative baby shower gift for her friend; rather than the run-of-the mill baby registry selection.  You know the feeling- you understand the purpose of those registries, but at the same time, feel torn that it has taken the fun out of buying a gift. Why not use the registry to gather clues about the baby room, colors, and interest.   Mom choose this Bubbles Bedding set by Lambs & Ivy, with all the accessories. What a cute ocean theme!  You guessed it, found on her registry! :)

 Lambs & Ivy Bubbles 6 Piece Crib Bedding Set
I found out the color of the wall , and created MATTHEW's letters to match the decor.  Now that's a gift! :)
 Bundle it up in something that can useful to the mamma, like a wicker basket and you are good to go.  This also goes with a similar bedding called  Bubble Bedding Set by Kids Line at Kids R Us,  and SoHo Designs Deep Sea Aquarium Baby Crib Nursery Bedding Set, 10 Piece.

Thanks for reading! See you soon! :)

Recycled Crayon Alphabet

Recycled Crayon Alphabet, originally uploaded by ZeeBree.
Everyone is always looking for creative ways to teach their children how to learn their letters and ultimately read. Admit it, that classic ABC song has been in your head before, and is probably in your head .....right..... now. :) (sorry about that) Well, these recycled crayons are the perfect size for those little hands and even include a picture on the letters to help them remember.
A=Apple, B=Bird, C=Cat, etc.

I am a major lost fan, and this is the first name that came to mind. :) They are available online on my  etsy store, and after only a few short days, I have had a lot of interest.  Hopefully, you will be one of them!

Thanks for reading! :)

Roses from a different perspective and still keeping the theme..

For the holidays this year, I could not think of what to get the Aunt that has it all.  I decided to create a one of a kind rose painting, because it is a common theme in her home.  I've never painted flowers before, let alone roses, but thought it was worth a shot, and boy, was I pleasantly surprised. I used a few different cameras to shoot this.. mostly my cellular phones (thank you Blackberry and Samsung ),  so you may notice a few color variations.. but I promise it looks like the last one! :)

Thanks for reading!! More to come soon! :)

Continued from my last post...

Continuing the theme, this is an oldie but I still look at this everyday in my home. This abstract painting started off as a doodle on the back of a piece of junk mail.
Do you see what it says?  (20% off anything in my etsy store for the first comment below with the correct answer)

Capturing the journey of your paintings

Have you ever considered taking photos of your paintings as they begin to take shape and come alive?  I don't recall when or why I started this, but I found it very facinating to take a moment each day and snap a photo of my progress.   Once complete, I find myself flipping back and forth, and watching my paintings develop. 

My plan for the next few posts, is to share the journey of my paintings with you.  I hope you enjoy!

Wall decor for kids!

Back to the topic of a room decor-  This time, kids rooms!  A mom contacted me for 9 inch Wall letters for her son's room, and requested that I match the bedding.  (see picture below).  

They key to matching anything is to pull the main colors that catch your eye right away.  In this case, blue, green and red stood out to me.   I created these letters to match Eli's room, and they were a hit!
