Really beginning to think I am destined to own a pug (rescue) one day…I mean, look what happened after The Year of the French Bulldog?

Custom Art for Christmas

October 18, 2010

If you’ve been pondering that portrait of Fido or a sketch of your childhood home, now is the time to get on the list.  My schedule fills fast this time of year, and I’ve got some serious holiday travel lined up.  Only 68 days left until Christmas! Eeeeeek!

No house is too big or too small and I’m a sucker for just about any furry baby!  All I need are some awesome photos to work from, and a little bit of time.  I can also make archival prints of the original work  so that other friends and family members can have a little memento too!

Most importantly, I want to remind you all to consider buying handmade this year and supporting your local art community.  Aside from bringing home the most unique gifts, you’ll also be keeping people like myself from having to get a “real” job…(I hear there’s not many of those anyway)…so keep it quirky, and  buy handmade!

Schedule Booking Fast!

December 2, 2009

Thanks to all of you who took advantage of my weekend sales.  Would you believe it?  It’s only Dec. 2nd and I can no longer accept Pet Portrait commissions!  If I’ve just broken your heart, no worries!  I can still issue you a super cute gift certificate, good for one year, from Vayda’s Pet Shop.

I still have time to squeeze in a few custom Pen & Inks, but better book quick!

Of course, I have plenty of reasonably priced prints for the Foodie on your list…and a full line of Savannah Prints and Notes…(a good thing to have on hand for that unexpected neighbor that drops by with a surprise gift)

Hope y’all are having the best Holiday Season ever!  Oh and please remember to support your local artists and the hand-made movement.  xo

We’ll refer to these little gems as “the second generation,” as they are a bit different.  They are printed with the finest archival inks onto a lovely Epson paper, a tad smaller than the originals, they measure 5″x5″.  Each comes hand-signed by yours truly, and is guaranteed to add a little spunk to your kitchen!  The best part?  Only $12 per print!!!

We need your vote!

December 22, 2008

A few years back, Nick and I had a pumpkin carving contest.  These were pre-blog days, and the judging was far from anonymous.  We simply emailed all our family and friends and asked them to cast a vote.  I suffered a bitter defeat that Halloween, and it has haunted me ever since.  So when Nick challenged me to a gingerbread house competition, how could I resist?

Here’s how it works…Take a look at the photos below…(in an effort to be fair, we won’t tell you whose is whose)…note that one house has blue windows while the other has yellow.  Then, cast your totally anonymous vote below for your favorite.  The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve.
