“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.”  -Calvin Coolidge

Hey y’all!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas! I know I did! I love spending time with my family. It’s my favorite time of the year!

So, for Christmas this year I was looking for a gift for my sister, Brittani. She’s been looking for something to put in her bathroom above her towel rack.

I was on Amazon looking at paintings when I found this…

I was like, “WOW! Thats perfect!!” And then I looked at the price… $1,375.00

Then I was like, “Yeah never mind.”  But then I thought, “I could make that!” And even better, I have a best friend who is an incredible artist, Bryona Jacobsen! So I text her the pictures. On Christmas Eve I picked up the finished product. She only charged me $40 the materials and her time.
