dazzled deSIGNS

My neighbor and I decided we needed a hobby while our husbands watched sports. Whitney is very creative and full of great ideas! We brainstormed for a while and came up with the idea of painting canvases, frames, and corkboards. I was a little nervous because I am not artistic at all and I can't paint. Whitney assured me that I could do it, so I agreed to proceed. Whitney drew most of the designs off, I painted them, and she wrote the names. Our partnership works well! I am more anal retentive and she is laid back easy going. We decided to market teachers first since I am a teacher, we thought it would be a great idea to paint canvases for teachers with their names on them. We did mine first to see if it would spark the interest of my co-workers. Boy did it ever!! We started painting last fall and did several teacher orders, we were so excited!! I don't think we realized how big of a hit it would be. We have since done orders for other items that aren't related to teacher names. All canvases come with a ribbon that matches the colors of the canvas. We have made canvases with kids' names and a fun design, painted a razorback canvas (SUPER CUTE), and some fun frames. I will post some pictures of what we have made thus far. IF you are interested in any of these designs let me know!!
