Smiles to The Painted Laugh!

A few days ago I was contacted by someone in San Diego regarding my art. I won't divulge the details (it'll be a surprise!) but I am so excited about her work! Sonja is an extremely talented artist whose work has been featured in OK magazine, San Diego Home and Garden, and The Luxury Spot Magazine - just to name a few! I've been exploring the website (which you can also do right here!) and am absolutely in love with what Sonja does. I can't wait to see her artwork live when it's featured at the Grand Rapids' Art Walk! Her work will be located in the b.o.b.!

What does every parent love more than anything in the world? Their child! And nothing is more precious than a child's laughter. It's hilarious, adorable, infectious, and pure joy. The concept behind this art is to take that beautiful laugh, and turn it into beautiful art. I love the way she translates the sound waves into brush patterns and the use of color!

As soon as I have a little one, this is definitely something I'll be looking to do! Hopefully Sonja's still doing this when that time comes (a few years out still). Here's one of my favorite pieces, but you can see more of her work at and request a Push Button Recorder by clicking the button below to start progress on your custom piece!

ten scenic drive

Ok, I can't even express how excited I am about the Crayon Art taking off! And look! Another blog has featured my shop! I LOVE this blog. The author, Kristin, has a super fun writing style and is incredibly artsy herself. My favorite thing I've seen on her blog: Bachelorette party cake. Cracks. Me. Up! I can't wait to plan a party and have this as the piéce de résistance. Take a look at her latest post (here) featuring JK Create's Crayon Art! 

I'm scrambling like crazy trying to get a bunch of new pieces up, getting orders ready to ship, and having art prints made of the most popular works. I'm so excited to see how the prints turn out! I'll even have prints on canvas made which are GORGEOUS! 

I hope you all are doing well, and sorry to be neglecting my blog! I'll have other crafty non-crayon things up soon. Cheers!

Rain, Rainbows & Melts

It has only been a few days since I launched my Etsy site, and the feedback has been overwhelming! Already, I've been featured in a few treasuries, been favorited, made contacts, and had a major confidence boost (extra perk). Take a look at the lovely Etsians who have shown my artwork a little love, and peruse the treasuries they've created. I want to say thanks to each of you and I wish you the best!

Mommy's Craft Box created this bright and beautiful Color My Summer Treasury

Curious Little Bird pulled together a lovely Rainy Saturday Treasury

I just love this collection of melty goodness I'll Stop the World and Melt With You Treasury organized by Rachel

And the lovely Tracy (Luv Laugh Sparkle) featured one of my pieces in her fresh and fun blog!
