Mama Jetplane is going to love this...

As promised here is the painting....

Take a look at the original pictures, didn't she do a wonderful job. I adore it and I know Mama Jetplane will as well. I actually cried when I saw it, because I knew how happy it would make my parents. The artist is the wife of one of my co-workers, she's incredibly talented. I'm thinking about having her to smaller portraits of Milo and Charlie's faces with a bright background, sort of Andy Warhol style (of course).

And as promised.... Here are my $8 shoes from Target. Pretty cute for 8 bucks, right?

That painting is FABULOUS!!! Does she do this for just anyone? (with a fee of course) I've been thinking of having one of Ellie done but some of them look so dumb. The one you have looks perfect. :)

Incredible!! The painting AND the sweet deal on the shoes. ;)

Alright, I have to ask too- is she taking on other paintings? How much did it cost? Honey looks so sweet! I need one with my pups, even if my husband questions my sanity.

She did a great job!!! Please let us know what the parents say when you give it to them!
Oh, and those shoes are cute! What a deal?!

I read your post on blue eyed brides comment page and I was so happy that someone actually was leaving a logical post. Everyone consistently agreed to something they do not understand. Obama stands for change and people are rejoicing for change not for Obama. I think a lot of people are afraid of change, its unfortunate, but true.

Holy adorableness. And those shoes? Even better than I could have imagined, wow!

Nicole said...

Those shoes would match my dress for a work gala I have on Saturday night!! I wonder if they have those in stock at a Chicago Target!!

Kristen said...

Those really are a-mazing for 8 dollars. I'm so proud!


(And I don't think that really counts as spending money when they're so cute and cheap.)
