Howdy

Hey guys - I don't have too much to report today. Basically, I'm feeling pretty exhausted about life and holidays. I really want to be excited but there is just so much going on! Time to slow down and enjoy my family. I did just put in a couple more HUGE orders of greeting cards, so if you want any for yourself or as holiday gifts, get your orders in to me asap! 







I'm taking custom painting orders for the next 2 weeks as well, then I'll take a break until the beginning of next year. Shoot me an e-mail mrs.brittanyingram{at}gmail{dot}com for more info. Hope you all are getting excited about the holidays!

A New Thing

My sophomore year in college, one of my best friends passed this verse onto me and I've loved it ever since! This is just a simple brown and gold painting - nothing fancy. 





Today I'm shipping out some greeting card orders and working on checking some other things off of my to-do list! I'm thankful for my health and the ability to run my errands (I'm thinking a lot about friends I have who aren't well enough to do simple tasks). What are you thankful for this week?

Tree Greeting Cards

Yeay! On Saturday I received such a fun box at my door! My tree greeting cards arrived and I could not be happier with them. I really just want to put all of my paintings on greeting cards, postcards and prints. They look so fabulous and it's so fun to have more "products." I still don't want to just create something so that people buy it (I want it to have deeper meaning that just income) but I feel like these cards are in line with that. So fun. 


Anyway, without further ado, the new tree greeting cards:








If you are interested in purchasing these tree cards, or the everyday cards, or the pen and ink cards, they are 2.00 per card (or 10.00 for a set). E-mail me! I'm finally feeling better so today I am catching up on all the things I couldn't accomplish while sick in bed (like shipping out all the other card orders!). Happy Thanksgiving week!

Falling for you (again and again)

I guess I should share all my fall paintings quickly before it's December and we've all moved on to winter! I made this painting in a larger size canvas than the original 5x7. I believe this one is 11x14. 






What are you up to this weekend? My poor family is sick now as well so we will be laying low and working on getting back to health. I might also make my first and only batch of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies for the season. We'll see. Enjoy the weekend!

Delight.

Gosh, I'm still sick! What's going on around here? I had to miss out on painting for the worship night last night and I was so sad. The last few nights I've gone to bed thinking I'll feel better in the morning, but every morning I wake up STILL under the weather. Daniel has been so wonderful to let me rest - he's been taking Ellie on errands and getting her out of the house. Unfortunately she woke up sick this morning too, poor thing, so it looks like we'll be laying low a little bit longer. Sigh. 

Anyway, this is another painting I worked on before the craft fair. Inspired by my friend Krysta, this verse was stuck in my head for awhile until I could finally get it down on canvas. This is one of those paintings I'd love to keep for myself - but I just can't keep them all!










I've got a few other new fun things in the works, so hopefully I will feel well enough to really get going on them soon!

Wonderful.

Hey. The bad news is, I am super sick, BUT the good news is I am, thankfully, in bed today. My sweet husband has taken over and told me to just rest. Gotta love him. I have a ton of new art to share though, so I thought I'd share this one today. I've been trying to work on more trees and this one was inspired by the fall (and ahem, Felicity)






Also, I'm also going to start tagging the art that is for sale for those of you who want to know what is available. I'm sloooowly but surely working towards an etsy shop - which will make things much easier eventually. For now, they will be tagged in each post and I will start posting them (with sizes, prices, etc) in the side bar as well.

Nursery Art: Baby A

A few weeks ago I was commissioned to make a piece of art for a baby girl's nursery. The new dad-to-be has this saying"Exciting new beginnings, changes life forever" and the new mama-to-be wanted to surprise him with this! I loved the idea and the challenge of using a smaller phrase on a bigger canvas. And I LOVE the color choices. Hopefully they will share pictures of the completed nursery with us soon!








You guys, guess what? I've been asked to do some LIVE painting at Community Bible Church this Wednesday night. I've always loved the idea... I have seen and love Scott Erikson's live painting projects. I've always wanted to try it, but I've never had the opportunity! It's a bit intimidating but I'm super excited to try. If you are in the area, come join us for the worship night at 7pm. 2734 Johnson Drive Suite C. 

I'm kinda sick so I'm trying to rest up and get well so that I can be 100% for all these crazy, fun, good things happening... SO much more to share soon.

Whoa.

The craft fair was SO much fun! I cannot tell you how encouraged I was to get feedback on my paintings and new greeting cards. It reminded me of why I do all this in the first place. I want to create things that people relate to and are moved by... it was encouraging to be told that's still true! Jessica Mingo Designs did a fabulous job planning and hosting and all the vendors helped create such a great event. So much fun. 















If you attended, thank you! If you bought anything from me (or the other vendors), thank you! If you said any of those kind, encouraging words throughout the night, thank you!


I still have a few greeting cards sets, a few prints and a few paintings left so if you are interested, e-mail me at mrs.brittanyingram@gmail.com. I am ordering more greeting cards PLUS a few new sets with trees, coffee cups and verses. Basically, you will have many to choose from - ha! Thanks again for the support and love! I so appreciate it.
