Easter Egg Painting Workshop

Spring is here, and it's time to announce my first workshop of 2017! I've been looking forward to painting more eggs since last Easter when I hosted an in-studio "practice" workshop with some close friends and family. It was so much fun and hope you can join me for this year's workshop at the always adorable shop in Morton So Chic Boutique.

Well, I'm relaunching my business after taking some time off to have a baby and thought it'd be fun to do a Mother's Day giveaway (appropriate, right?) of a Custom Home Portrait in acrylic. The photos above are an example of what you'd receive if you won the giveaway- a 5x7 illustration of your home on a cradled wooden canvas. I want to run the giveaway now so that there's plenty of time to paint and mail out the portrait before the big day.

To enter, just drop your email in the box below. That signs you up for my newsletter. If you're already on my newsletter list, you don't need to do a thing because you're already entered in the giveaway!

The giveaway will run at the beginning of next week and winner will be notified via email.

Baby Lane

And just like that, 9 hard months of pain and discomfort have been instantly replaced by relief and overwhelming joy as we welcomed our second child, Lane Joseph Schneider, into the world! He was born Sunday, March 5th at 8:19 pm weighing 8 lbs 3 oz, 21 inches long.

We're all doing well, except poor Seth who somehow came down with influenza and a sinus infection last week. Thankfully, he's on the mend now, and we're all looking forward to spending more family time together in the next few weeks and months. 

I'm slowly working my way back into the studio. I've actually missed work lately and am excited to get the paints out again and start a few portraits back up in between naps, dirty diapers, laundry, nursing, and everything else! Life is full and a bit chaotic right now, but I'm soaking in the baby snuggles because, you know, they grow so fast and newborns are just magical. If you don't believe me, here's proof:
