Hand Painted Nursery and Party Letters

I just HAVE to show you all what I have been doing lately. These nursery letters have become a HUGE hit in my etsy shop and I can't churn them out fast enough! Not only are they an original piece of art to hang in your child's room, but they can be personalized to match ANY room d├ęcor. I just love doing these and reading the feedback that my clients give. One of the main reasons I create, is to make others smile. I get so much joy out of making my clients happy. Here are a few of my most popular designs.

 Nautical Designs are becoming quite the popular theme these days. Love the bold colors!!
"If nautical nonsense be something you wish....."


The "N" is my favorite letter in this bunch. It's just so darn cute!


 Here are a few from the popular Lambs and Ivy Bow Wow crib bedding set

Super cute paisley pattern for a college dorm room.

Kelly even sent me a picture of her letters hanging up in her dorm room! Love getting feedback like that!

These Vintage Varsity sets are my most popular design. I have been getting so many good name ideas in case we are having a boy! ;)

My FAVORITE design are these letters to match a "Tutu Cute Ballerina" themed birthday party! I love all things girly and pink so I fell in love as I worked on these. Hope you like them too!

Happy Kraftin!

Some-Bunny is Making these this year for Easter

How stinkin' cute are these? I always see stuff like this on Pinterest and blogs and think to myself, "that doesn't look too hard..." but then when I attempt, it never turns out like the picture. I don't know if anyone remembers my post last year on the deviled Easter eggs chick disaster, but it wasn't a pretty say the least. So when I found these, they seemed mess free and simple enough. I have a steady hand when it comes to painting, but not in the kitchen. I wonder why? Below is the recipe and the source where it came from. WISH ME LUCK WITH THESE!
Bunny Bread:
2-1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons butter
1 egg

Put the butter, the sour cream and water in a small saucepan and heat, but do not cook. Cool to tepid then add the remaining ingredients. Put in a kneader. If thick add more water. Let it rise double and cut into 16 equal parts. Baking tray lined with baking paper and cut the ears with scissors. Then, the eyes can be put, such as pepper grains.

Bake at 375° for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
