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.

whimsical chevron baby sower invitations

I designed these special Baby Shower Invitations at the request of the awesome host, Lyndsay. The gender of the baby was a surprise… so I used the color palette from the crib bedding that the parents-to-be chose for their little one!

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!

chevron letters for leyla

Just finished up some pretty pastel letters painted for Baby Leyla. Chevron stripes are very on trend now & they look super cute paired with polka dots!
The font & style of the letter is new too! They can sit on a shelf or hang on the wall.

pink gold & pearls

Rose gold *aka* pink gold, has been a very popular trend in the last few years. Many people complain that traditional yellow gold doesn’t look great against their skin tone, but this pretty metal has more of a coppery, pinkish hue which is complementary to all skin tones.
This delicate three strand bracelet combines pretty rose gold filigree elements with the classic look of fresh water pearls. The fresh water pearls vary size as well as in color; white, pink, & coral. You can purchase this bracelet on my Etsy Shop by clicking here.

letters for lily & the long distance process

When a potential customer is interested in placing an order for hand painted letters, they always ask… “So how does this work?”
I thought I would give you an example of the most recent ‘long distance’ order for hand painted letters I have done.

A bit about the special customers…
We spent the 2010-2011 hockey season in Helsinki, Finland. Calla & Jeremy are a great couple that we were fortunate to have spent the season with, now they are expecting a baby girl! C&J spend the off-season in their hometown of Madison, Wisconsin, which is where Baby Lily will first come home to.

Step 1
Calla sent me links to the crib bedding that they picked out for Lily. It can be found here.

Step 2
Once Calla set up Baby Lily’s nursery she sent me pictures. I love to see what the room looks like as a whole, I take into consideration, wall color, patterns, furniture, special toys, decor etc…

If the customer has something in particular in mind I go with it, but in this case Calla instructed me to take a look at the pictures & go ahead with any ideas I may have. I saw that the theme in Lily’s bedding has wonderful pops of color {I LOVE color}, great polka dot accents, & sweet little safari animals that kept popping up. The walls in her room were also a perfect blank canvas to decorate with bright color! This is the final result…
