A few things in the mail……and last minute Thanksgiving idea.

I received a highly anticipated treasure in the mail the other day.  
I ordered 2 original water color paintings of my two little kiddos, from a shop called Bedoodled.  
(Found here.)  
I wanted something completely them, to put up in their room.  
So I emailed the owner Keri a few times, and told her some of my ideas……..and she created little scenes of my kids, that illustrate their favorite things in life.  
(And to these kids of mine, their favorite things are their whole world.)
My little girl is wearing her favorite Cinderella dress in the painting, holding nail polish, dress up shoes scattered around, her favorite can’t-sleep-without-it pink bear up on the chair, etc.  
(She loves looking at the painting of herself and naming off all of her most treasured belongings.  Worth every penny.)
And my word, my little boy hiding under the table (he loves playing hide ‘n seek), munching on snacks, grasping his favorite motorcycle, ready to build more onto his train track, etc.  The whole painting is so him.  Cracks me up.

A few favorites from the shop.
(Robot Paytime and Homemade Hero)

 I’m completely pleased with the paintings.  They look darling in their room, sitting side-by-side, right above their dresser.  And thanks to Keri for creating the perfect little childhood treasure, that really captured both their personalities right at this time.  And the detail.  Wow.  Thanks Keri, for including it all for me. 
Another idea is brewing in my head for a gift for my husband.  It may include him rocking out on his guitar.  Ha!
Take a look at the Bedoodled shop here, to see what else Keri has created.  Such sweet paintings to add to a nursery, play room, or even gift to a friend.  Just imagine.
And then another day, another little beauty arrived in the mail.  
(Our mail lady has been treating me well lately!)
This great cluster charm arrived in the mail from Bejeweled Beads, found here.
I love the look of this charm, paired with any of my simple jewel tone tops for fall.  Perfect.
And the cluster charms are interchangeable, so I can switch colors with whatever I’m wearing.  Love that too.
What a great way to add a little glam to an outfit……without being too fussy.  You know, perfect for those more casual days but even lovely with that dressier outfit.
Can’t you think of several other women in your life that would love a new necklace, watch, bracelet or ring this holiday season?  Stop by Bejeweled (found here) for some great gift ideas.
Thanks Chelsea!
One last thing.  
I just had to mention one more little Thanksgiving idea before Thursday.  
Eek, that’s just around the corner.

    Thank you for posting about Bedoodled and especially for showing homemade hero. That is my son – right down to the "hair style" (or at least was – he's now 18) I just had to race over to Keri's shop and buy that picture! I can't wait till it arrives. I know I will not be disappointed!

  7. Rachel says:

    So fun. I love the paintings! I bet when your children are older, it will be a great way to look back on their childhood.

  8. Sara Marie says:

    I love that necklace and the way you can change out the designs. Too perfect

    Love the idea of the paintings:) I found an old vintage greeting card that has a little girl on it that looks exactly like my daughter and it has things she loves in it too:) I framed it and it is one of her favorite things in her room. Its so neat to record what our kids are into at certain ages:)
