{Blog Sponsor: Paint Me a Picture}



Lindsay Girl, the creative gal behind Paint Me a Picture, is a great, great blog friend of mine. We talk daily. But that is beside the point ;) She makes ahh-mazing paintings. Remember this:





She is the gal that made that. I heart Lindsay, and her paintings. And you should, too. Lindsay Girl is another one of my blog sponsors. Something I love about her work is that she uses other mediums to create texture and depth, like paper, buttons and fabric. Maybe she and I will get together and add some ruffles to her projects? :)


Please check out her shop and blog. Your eyes will thank you. And you can thank me by leaving a comment after you read through this post.

Below is a little interview :)

Love you, Lindsay!!!

***

How long have you been painting/blogging? I am sure I have painted since I could hold a paint brush. I remember having watercolors as a little girl. As far as painting on canvas for others to see - that started in 2001 when a friend gave me paints and a canvas for my 19th birthday. I have been in blogland for 3 years.




What do you enjoy most about it? I love creating something new and something someone *loves* for their home. It is so satisfying to begin, finish, and deliver a painting, and to see the look on friends' and customers' faces. I enjoy blogging because it gives me a glimpse into the lives of others and allows me to share as well.




Give us a little background info on yourself. Just a small town girl living in a lonely world... {smiling}

Seriously:
-from a small southern town
-laugh loud (I am the one you hear above everyone else in the theater)
-eloped and married at 20
-discovered good music through Mr.Wonderful
-enjoyed 5 years of love and adventure
-introduced Mr.C {our 10-month-old baby} into the love-adventure
-decided to stay-at-home as a mommy and start selling my paintings




Where do you see yourself in one year? Ha, ha, ha, ha (that is me laughing loudly).
Hopefully in my new house, still painting and selling, and enjoying my crazy, unpredictable life.




Share a fun memory painting/blogging has brought you. I think every time I blog a new post (whether it be a painting or about what is going on in my little life) I get a new, fun memory. Receiving responses from friends/followers with their advice, encouragement, and silliness makes my day.



Go check out her shop, and remember Lindsay Girl if you need something custom for your home or nursery. She'd l-o-v-e to work with you, I promise

Thanks for spotlighting Lindsay and her shop, Gussy!
I plan to order a painting for little one's nursery from her, once my bedding comes in. She has some perfect pieces for the room!
