Baby Sadie

Little Miss Sadie arrived a couple of months ago, and this is the verse her parents chose for her. Some versions say "God is my strength" but they chose "God is my ROCK" and I like that! They wanted pink, green and yellow but not the typical baby pastels, so I had fun making this bright and cheery. I kept it simple but added some stitching around the name for a little bit of interest and color.

Welcome to the world, sweet Sadie!

{Your Space} What's Required.

I've decided to start a new thing - posts of my art in your space. I love seeing what people end up doing with my art, and I figured you might like it too! 

First up, my cousin sent me these pictures of the painting I made for her last fall!
She has deemed this her "cozy corner" complete with a comfy chair, soft blanket, cute lamp, and my painting! 
I love this little spot and can just imagine days curled up there with a good book. So glad this painting has found a happy home in this sweet, cozy space. 
Do you have a piece of artbybritt in your home, office, or other space? Send pictures to mrs.brittanyingram@gmail.com and you might just get your own post here!

{Baby Nursery} Pottery Barn Inspired Cherry Blossoms

My new niece Aniston is set to arrive next Friday and our whole family can barely contain our excitement! We love babies, but we especially love OUR babies (what, my nephews and nieces are mine too, aren't they?). My sister has been nesting like crazy and one of the last touches in the baby's room is this painting I've been working on... 

I'm so happy to have it done before Aniston arrives, and now my sis can rest easy knowing every last detail is in place. I cannot wait to meet this little one!

{New Home} Pink&Orange

This painting has found a new home with some sweet friends of mine. I have had it for years and hadn't had the heart to let it go until recently. It started out as a blue painting above my bunk during my sophomore year of college, and it morphed into these colors along the way. It's one of those that sort of has sentimental value, so I'm so glad I know it's gone to a good "home."

Shout out: Creations by Victoria

My sweet friend Victoria made me this Anthropologie inspired necklace! She used the sweetest yellow fabric - it is perfect for summer and I just love it. 

She brought my necklace in a little brown bag tied with an adorable handmade headband for my daughter! 

Ellie isn't too sure about headbands in general, but I think she looks SO sweet in this one.

Victoria is just starting out with her crafting endeavors but she is super creative. Be sure to check out her other necklaces, headbands and hair clips! Thanks again, Victoria!

Happy Spots

Rachel at Smile and Wave did this fun post a while ago about happy places in her home. I read it then and took photos, but I'm just now getting around to posting these... I just love our little house and even though we've been here a year I'm still having fun changing things up and making it ours. 

I switched up an art wall to be a family photo wall a month ago and I LOVE how it turned out. I am so pleased with it.

This corner of our family room is so relaxing - our big chair and a half from Crate and Barrel, a few of Daniel's amazing photos, pillow covers with Grandma's vintage fabric, and our yellow armoire (We got it a few months ago that makes me so happy. Yellow isn't really in the color scheme of our home but I'm starting to incorporate it a little bit... and it just makes me happy).

Lastly, who doesn't love their bed?? Seriously one of the best parts of my day is climbing in bed. We got this awesome duvet from Anthro awhile back (it took some convincing the hub, but he went for it) and I'm so glad!

What are your happy spots in your home? I'd love to see them!
