Ella and Jett!

I love painting these bright and funky buckets for Easter. These are going to a rockin' little boy and a sassy little girl. Also their sweet mom makes hair bows! When I received her order I saw a link to her website Ella Claire Bowtique! My lucky little Lillie got her first box full of bows and I will be ordering lots more! Lillie now has some of the cutest bows and also the CUTEST headbands ever! If you are wanting some super cute bows for your little girl go check them out!


Skiing Bunnies!

These were made for a family that is going snow skiing for Easter!

Sweet Bunnies!

A Duck for Cate!

Polka Dots and Stripes!

Bold and Bright Buckets!

I made the these buckets for a brother and his two sisters. Their mom wanted the three of them to coordinate with each other but wanted the two for her girls to be just a little bit funky! So here is what we came up with! I love the brighter colors on all three of them and love the animal print eggs for the girls! So fun!

Easter Designs!

I know that you really can't see this design that well, but this was made for a Lego lovin' little boy! Can you see the lego blocks?

Landon is getting a bunny with some eggs and Jelly Beans!

This is another bucket that I did that is going to go in a nursery after Easter!

This is the most popular design I have done this year! This customer asked for some paisley to be added to her bucket!

A Baseball Bucket!

A Spring Bucket!

I love this bucket! I have painted this same design in other colors. This customer wanted a bucket that she can keep out all spring for her house!


This another version of the lamb bucket. This customer is going to leave it in her son's nursery after Easter so instead of the eggs I added some polka dots!

A Little Argyle

Wild and Wacky and Bathtime!

So in the middle of all these buckets I have also painted a couple of canvases! I have to say it has been a nice bucket break! I absolutely love this and every time I walk past it, I try to think of a place in my house to put it! This customer is going to put this in her son's playroom where she has a little reading corner. (Tabetha you have to send me some pics!) She really liked the Gabby canvas that I did about a year ago but wanted primary colors and a saying about reading in the middle. Thank goodness I have a teacher friend who emails me and every time she does it has this Dr. Seuss quote at the bottom of her emails. I have always loved it and thought that it would fit perfect with the canvas!

This canvas is going in her sons bathroom. He has the A to Z shower curtain from Pottery Barn Kids. Super cute and sadly no longer available for sale. Her only request was the Alligator so it was fun to pick out the other letter to add to the canvas! Thank you again Tabetha!

More Easter 2010!

Remember Parker's Frog? This customer loved that color scheme and wanted to make it into an Easter bucket but wanted a bunny instead of a frog! Love how it turned out!

This bucket is going to a sweet little girl, Soren Kate (loving all of these unique names this year!) Her dad is a minister so her mom wanted something spiritual on it. So here is what we came up with. On the front a cross and it says, "Jesus rose that Easter morn, and in our hearts new hope is born." On the back is the same cross with that sweet little lamb! It has been so fun creating all of these special requests, more to come!

Ok so I have some customers that I am finding out live somewhat close or that travel through my area. So with that being said, I live near the Little Rock, Arkansas area and so I am willing to meet up with anyone who lives in the surrounding area to deliver your bucket!! It makes my life easier not having to deal with figuring shipping and boxes and all that other fun stuff! So if you do life this way or if you are going to be traveling through this area please let me know so that we can make arrangements to get meet up! Thank You!!

Easter Designs 2010!

I can not take any credit for these designs because most of these were thought up by my customers. These are just a few new ones, I have more to come! I have alot of special request this year so they have been alot of fun painting!
Aren't these little bunnies hiding everywhere super cute!

This customer wanted something a little more modern looking for her little girl Essie! She wanted hot pink, light pink and zebra with some bunnies. I love making these funky buckets! I can see this in boy colors and taking out the zebra print, also seeing it in more more pastel colors and no zebra print. I think that these bunnies are so cute. The more I look at them the more they look like little bunny eggs to me!

This customer picked out the colors from other buckets from my site. She wanted them to coordinate but not be to matchy-matchy! I love these two buckets and think they would be cute in pastels and would be cute for boys with a less fancy letter in the front!

More sporty eggs!

I am lucky to have some awesome customers that thought up some really cute ideas. So here they are. I do have a few more coming! I plan to post them by the end of the week. And I am trying to respond to email! I promise if you submitted your order before Feb 17Th (which was the deadline) even if we have not talked yet you will have your buckets by Easter! A dear friend is going to help me invoice, pack up and ship out some buckets this week so that I can concentrate on the painting part!!!!
