Custom Orders

I love doing custom orders!  I feel privileged when someone asks me to reproduce an image or idea that they have in their head.
  This one that I recently completed is a 16x20 painting on canvas, based on this print.


 It's a mixed-media painting... the parts of the tree are hand-embroidered.


Along with the stitching and painting, there are some paper elements too.



I've never offered these in my shop, but I do a lot of custom orders locally for these pots. 
People order them with their family name on top, and then I customize stick people for every person in the family.  They are a lot of fun to make!


Are you making anything these days?  I know that the thought of Spring puts a lot of people's creativity into full gear!  :)

Absolutely gorgeous!! I love the art work. :o) With the charming stitching touches.
I recently finished hand quilting and posted if you would like to take a peek.
Since the weather is so nice, I am spending any free time outdoors.
Just tilled our ground for a garden! Can not wait until we put some seeds down. :o) That will be posted tomorrow. :o)
Have a great day!
Sincerely, Trish
