Thank you so much for a great Christmas season; we are now closed for 2013! We will be closed until next fall, assuming Tim completes his Air Force training in the summer and we move to our new state (wherever that is!) afterwards. Melissa will still be checking email as much as possible so please feel free to write us if you need anything! It may just be a bit before she can respond :)

    Spring Door is a magical springtime piece with a ladybug kitten and an enchanted doorknocker.

  • Sales- We still have a bunch of overstock items in our Sales gallery so be sure to check them out!

  • Shipping- International rates are completely brutal with the new hike in postal costs- shipping literally doubled or tripled. Unfortunately we've had to up our shipping prices to compensate for this huge jump (and it's still not often enough to cover the actual cost).

  • Coming Soon- We have a lot of new items coming up in the next few months, including new tin styles, lockets, necklaces, bracelets & ornaments. We will likely be adding them to the site slowly over the next few months and will send out a newsletter with a recap & new paintings, so keep an eye on the website in between newsletter updates!


November 30, 2012

  • Cats- We have one more amazing new Christmas painting for you!
    Candy Cane Lane features two Santa kittens popping out of a present on Candy Cane Lane!

  • Sales- The holiday craziness must have gotten to us, because Melissa's added a bunch of HUGE sale items to our Sales gallery! We usually just save our overstock from shows, but this time she decided to add them for you at crazy low prices. Most items are the last on in stock so grab them while you can! Keychains, keychain charms, medieval frames, crystal cameos, charmed cameos, small lockets... check them out!

  • Holiday Shipping- Shopping Dates Update: We always recommend international orders be placed as soon as possible, as there is no guarentee they will arrive in time for Christmas. December 16 is the last day for anyone to place an order before Christmas! (you can still order on the site, it just won't ship until January) Domestic orders placed December 12 through December 16 will be shipping via Priority Mail (a flate rate of $5.50 an order). Orders placed December 18 through January 6 will begin shipping after our holiday break, approximately January 7.


November 18, 2012

    Snow Berries features a beautiful red cardinal on a snowy winter day!

They reflect the Christmas lights on a tree beautifully, adding to the magic of the moment!

  • Greeting Cards- Due to many requests we've added Christmas Greeting Cards this year. Four adorable, vivid designs will add holiday cheer to whoever you chose to send them to! Or if you hang them on the wall : )

  • Holiday Shipping- Just a reminder... We always recommend international orders be placed as soon as possible, as there is no guarentee they will arrive in time for Christmas.

  • Cornucopia Days- The first day was exhausting but super fun!! So far I'm planning on being there from 10-6ish on Saturday, and maybe 10-4ish on Sunday. The earlier in the day, the more likely we are to still be there, but we will stay as late as I can handle!


July 6, 2012

  • Shows- After months of debate, we decided to sign up for a fourth year at Cornucopia Days. Tim should be in our booth no matter what, but Melissa is hoping she will be able to be there the whole time as well! We will update the website the week of the festival and throughout the festival if Melissa will only be there part of the time in case you wish to stop by when she's there. Cornucopia Days is in Kent, WA, Friday, Saturday, & Sunday July 13-15. Please visit our Appearances page for the details!

  • Zazzle- We have a Zazzle store! Melissa has been using it to make iPhone cases with her painting for herself & her family, and finally made it public. We have all kinds of cool merchandise up, but with so many paintings it's hard to get them all on everything, so if there's a painting you want with a certain item, let us know and we'll be happy to post it right away for you.
