Halloween Orders

Ok I know it has been a month since I posted and I had full intentions of getting back on top of my orders. I promise to respond to people and this week I am going to be crazy painting and emailing everyone. I totally apologize just have had a lot going on in my life lately. We discovered this summer that my little girl had some food allergies and recently we had a another scare with her when she woke up on morning in respiratory distress and we were taken by ambulance to Children's because her oxygen levels went down into the 80's. We thought that maybe she might have asthma but after a stay in Children's they said it was just a viral infection that attacked her lungs. So that has just been a small part of my crazy life right now and I do apologize to everyone for not responding to everyone sooner. If you have emailed me I promise you will be hearing from me this week!

Here are a Few more Goodies!

The bucket are a few teacher bucket that I did at the end of last year. They were for preschool teachers, one was to match the school theme and the other was for the teacher who always wears high heels and pearls!

The canvases, I did for a girl that works for us at our restaurant. She drew them so I can't take credit for anything but painting them! But what is crazy is she didn't know that she had this hidden talent. This is the first thing that she has ever drawn anything. I was amazed when I saw them. She was scared to paint them because she said she was scared that she would mess them up so she asked me. I was honored to do something special for her sweet baby girl's room! Thank you again for trusting me Cortny!


A sand pail!
I made this for my son's teacher, she was the first teacher that I did a teacher bucket for so I had to do something different for her so now she has a canvas to match her bucket!
Remember Caboodles? This was a gift for one of my little girl's friends. We filled it with makeup and jewelry!

A Pirate Canvas to welcome guest to a pirate party!

This says Twinkle Twinkle Little star do you know how loved you are?

Okay so it has been awhile! First of all, it's been a crazy summer! I know in my last post I mentioned that my Granny has passed away. I honestly thought that things would get better. Boy was I ever wrong. Both of my kids have been sicker this summer than ever before. We discovered that my little girl has a food allergy. That was scary and we ended up with a stay in the hospital. I have had strep throat and after a round of antibiotics I woke up extremely sick again and discovered that I had mono! So needless to say I have not had the time or the energy to do anything. I am sorry but I have not checked my email in forever, but it is going to be on my list to do in the next few days. I am sorry that I have been out of pocket here lately and hope that everyone understands why I have now been missing and not responding to any emails! I am sorry and hopefully all the chaos is over with for now! I included some pictures of some goodies I made before all the chaos started! Enjoy!

And now I am going to be taking Halloween orders! I have not set a deadline yet so if you are interested please email me! I am sure that I will have some new designs coming this year. I just have not had a chance to think of any!

So I have been a little MIA for a while and I said that I would try to open orders back up this month. I am going to try my best to get caught back up. Sadly my sweet Granny passed away last week. So needless to say I have honestly pushed my Whimsy Tin business off to the side. I do have lots of new stuff to post and to finish!!!! I will probably open orders up again in the next couple of weeks. Check back soon!

As of today I am not accepting any new orders. I will probably open back up in July. Right now I have a lot of orders to complete and just know that right now I can't accept anymore till I complete some of these!

Love Birds!

You have got to go see the baby bedding that this was made to match. Click here to see it! I love it! I loved the damask pattern with all the pink's and blue's and green's but most of all I just loved the birds! It is just so sweet and so girly!

Oh! Who lives in a pineapple under the sea...

SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS! This was for Mr. Brayden's birthday party!
Medium bucket $20!

The Reid's

This was made for a teacher gift. She wanted to give her something that she could use all year at her house! I love the color combo on this. I feel like it should be sitting out by the pool! Small oblong tub $50.

Mother's Day Gifts!

Here are a couple of tubs that I painted for Mother's Day Gifts for a customer. This is such a cute idea for any grandmother! They are both going to be used as planters and say "Grandchildren grow with Nana's/Mimi's Love!"

Liam Palmer!

This is for another baby shower! So fun to make this argyle and golf themed bucket. His bedding is the cutest blue and green argyle and how about his name! Love it!


This is for Samuel's first birthday party! After the party it is going to be used as a toy tub in his future big boy room!


Anna Garrett!

This is another great idea for a baby shower gift!

Pink Paisley


Lately I have done a lots of buckets for baby gifts. I love to see what people do their nurseries in and what they are going to name their baby. I absolutely love this bedding that is going into this baby girls room. The flowers and the colors are so fun and funky! And not to mention her cute little name!

I simply adore HOPE!

This is for Miss Hope's 3rd birthday party! A Fancy Nancy tea party! I love how this turned out and my little Lillie was so excited when she saw this bucket and very disappointed when she was told it was for someone else. I love the pearl necklace going all around the bucket. If you click on the bottom picture you will see that the high heel has a little bling! And it just wouldn't be so fancy with out the glitter!

Large Bucket


Extra Small Bucket!

More Easter 2010!

Love these lambs!

Caleb's mom sent me pictures of these cute bunnies for me to match up for his bucket! I love that so many people wanted bright colors this year for Easter!
Avery Kate's mom sent me ideas of what she wanted and this is what we came up with in the end! I have to say there were lots of Easter buckets with zebra print on them this year! I really love this pink and brown zebra.

This was a popular design this year and I did it in a couple of different color schemes. He it is in primary colors!
This was truly my most popular design this year!
This design I have always painted in the in pastels so now here it is in brighter colors. I love the turquoise!
This is a medium bucket. This is the first time I have painted the band around the bottom of a bucket this size but I love how it turned out!

The back!

I really loved painted all of the special request that I got this year! This bucket was a lot of fun to paint. Mack's momma sent me an email of what she wanted and asked if I could do it. I told her I would try and see what I could do! I think it turned out super cute! I am not sure how well you can see it but it is a Bunny driving a tractor pulling a trailer full of eggs and then some chicks along the backside!

So here they are the rest of the Easter buckets! I have to say a huge thank you to everyone who ordered and for being so patient with me! I am amazed at how popular they were this year. I started painting Easter buckets two years ago. I put them in a friends photography studio and sold about 30 buckets, all to local people! This year I sold over 100! all I can say is WOW! I am seriously amazed at how my small business has grown. I have shipped buckets all over the United States this year! It is still crazy to me but so much fun and I have loved every minute of painting them! I have received some pictures of some of the little cuties that got buckets this year and I would love to see more of them! So if you get a chance please email me a pic! Also if you missed the deadline I am still painting Easter buckets for some people who still wanted them for next year so feel free to email me with your order! I will be taking orders through the end of April but will be taking the month of May off and will not be accepting any orders during that time. So if you are wanting to order something please get it in soon!
