letters for baby caroline

One of my favorite children’s books of all time is Eric Carle’s, The Very Hungry Caterpillar… so I was very excited to receive a request to paint letters inspired by the book!
These letters were to be given as a gift to a brand new baby, Caroline, whose nursery was decorated with Pottery Barn Kid’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar crib bedding. I was very inspired by the primary colors & painterly quality of the book’s illustrations so tried to convey that with these letters.

purple paisley for baby hadley

This was another fun long distance request from a wonderful friend back in The States! Mommy Amy sent me pictures of Baby Hadley’s nursery & instructed me to go ahead & do whatever I wanted! I created these letters to match her lovely Brooklyn Pottery Barn Kids bedding. Check out the inspiration pictures of Baby Hadley’s nursery & the finished letters below!

I forgot to mention that for Baby Hadley’s letters I kept track of a few things I get asked about from time to time, so here are your fun facts for the day… I used 5 custom mixed colors and 20 different paintbrushes for the 6 letters of Hadley’s name!

maddie’s paisley & stripe letters

As many of you know, we move around more than the average family! Hopping around from country to country obviously has its benefits, but there are few quirky little draw backs along the way too! Long story short, we just received boxes of our personal items from our ‘2011-12 hockey season home in Malmö Sweden, to our home this year in Augsburg Germany… after a 7 month wait!
Unpacking the boxes we discovered Maddie’s 2nd set of letters, that I made for her bedroom in Sweden. I realized that I rarely post things that I make for her! I created these to match her pink paisley Pottery Barn bedding. Whoa! That was a lot of P’s in one sentence!

celebrating baby wesley

I was so happy to spend Saturday afternoon at a lovely baby shower catching up with some of my college friends! The shower was thrown for my great friend & awesome RIT lacrosse teammate, Erin. Erin and her husband Ryan {also an RIT lacrosse alum} are expecting a baby boy! Erin & Ryan are going to name their little guy Wesley Daniel… “Wesley” after Ryan’s mother’s maiden name & “Daniel” after Erin’s dad. Wesley is destined to be a superstar lacrosse player, just like his parents!

These are the green & white letters that I painted for little Wesley’s room.

owls for baby mark

Baby Mark arrived in October 2011 to two amazing parents, Kate & Ryan. While Kate & Ryan were awaiting Mark’s arrival they picked out adorable crib bedding for his nursery. The awesome Dwell Studio crib bedding set is aptly named “Owls”. It can be purchased online through Layla Grayce, here. I used inspiration from the Owls theme throughout Kate’s baby shower invitations, letters for Mark’s nursery & a growth chart for Mark’s room.

For Kate’s baby shower invitations I digitally re-illustrated the pattern, matched colors on the computer & used it to create a border for the invites. I then designed the text to finish them off.dwell studio owls invitations 1dwell studio owls invitations 2dwell studio owls invitations 3As a baby shower gift for the special parent’s to be, I hand painted letters & a growth chart to hang in Baby Mark’s new nursery. Again I took inspiration from Mark’s cool Owl bedding, matched colors & personalized the following…hand painted letters markmark letters close upMark Growth Chart
