I recently completed another custom banner order from my etsy shop. This one was for Angelica Grace Designs.

She requested the colors pale pink, turquoise, robin's egg blue, and aqua and sent me a photo of Heather Baliey's studio as inspiration. It all just worked together! I went with a shabby chic kind of feel to this one, with alot of paint and crackle. I am really, really pleased with the result. Each pennant is 6″ wide and 9″ tall. I think this is my best banner yet. After reading her story on her website, I was very inspired and had a great time putting together this piece for her studio. Hope she likes it!! It's off in the mail so I'll know in a few days…

Here are some snapshots to enjoy:

It started with jewelry, beading, sewing, home decor, painting, basket weaving, pottery, and cross-stitch. Marry that to an entrepreneurial spirit & at 9 years old a girl is selling her wares at craft fairs as far as her parents and grandparents would drive her. These days, Jennifer enjoys crafts of all genres from sewing to scrapbooking to jewelry with a little dabbling in the mixed media world. Her style is approachable and she wants everyone who sees her work to feel that they too can embrace creativity and make their home and life beautiful.

  5. Jennifer,
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Thank you so very much for doing this for me. I can’t wait to get it and hang it in my home studio. It’s really going to be perfect in there. Once I have it hung, I’ll post about it on my blog with a direct link to you. OK? Thanks again for everything. Oh – and my husband and I love the wings. They are so ME! What a great last minute addition. They really make the piece! Blessings,
    Angie Seaman
