Mint green and The Adventure Orange

Over the weekend Matt and I went out exploring around the Quad Cities. We ran a couple errands and then headed down to the East Village of Davenport to check out Mint Green and The Adventure Orange. It is a funky, eclectic little store with fashion, accessories and gifts. They even had baby clothes!

I'm all about unicorns right now. 
I loved the hats!

I have a big head but this yellow hat fit nicely so I had to have it. There was so much more I would have liked to get if I had more money. A dress, a couple pieces of their jewelry, a sticker or two...you get the point :)

Mystery machine

Another project I worked on a while back but never posted is of this little golf cart my work friends and I got to turn into a Scooby Doo Mystery Machine. The city wanted a mystery machine to drive in the holiday kick-off parade since the giant balloon they had to carry in the parade was of Scooby Doo. Jean, Glenn and I were up for the challenge. 

It was time consuming and difficult at times but I had a lot of fun. Jean and Glenn are two of my favorite local artists so I learned a thing or two from them in the process. It was the first time I ever worked on a project like this. I would definitely do something like it again if the opportunity ever arises!

Painting a Princess Party Beanbag Toss

I had some posts I started a long time ago but never posted. This one is of a bean bag toss I painted for the children museum's princess birthday parties. It took forever to finish but I had a ton of fun doing it and absolutely love how it turned out.

Here are a few progress photos. When I first started I only had a vague idea of what I wanted so as the painting progressed the colors changed.
