Paint, oil paint, Chalkboard, Canvas


Your special little baby is one already-when did that happen? Life moves pretty fast when you have kids, and they evolve so quickly in such a short period of time--so what better way to celebrate (and immortalize) what life was like for them when they were one? It makes a wonderful conversation piece for your baby's first birthday, and long after the party, it can still be enjoyed-in a playroom, in their bedroom, anywhere that you can have a nostalgic moment about their favorite toy, their preferred activity, or their measurements when they were one.

Please specify color scheme (if you want one, as in to match the invitation/party decor) in "message to seller" portion during checkout, as well as the info. If a color scheme is not selected, all colors (with pink and purple as prominent colors) will be used.

**PLEASE NOTE: I can take orders at any time for these-my current turnaround time is 4 weeks, however most customers place the order at least a month ahead of the event. You do NOT have to provide all of the information (to be incorporated into the chalkboard) at the time of purchase, this can be done via conversation (most send information a couple weeks prior to my shipping). I ALWAYS check in, even if you have sent over the information already, to see if anything has changed, particularly height, weight, and number of teeth.Typically my customers purchase roughly 4-6 weeks out, in order to reserve their spot in my queue, then they send me over the information (I strongly recommend keeping to 10-13 facts), and any other requests as well (color scheme, any graphics, font styles, etc. If you do not have a preference, and some don't, I promise that I will make you something you will love.)

The Friday before the weekend of the event, I will check in to see if any measurements/number of teeth have changed (so the board is as accurate as possible without being so close to the party that you worry about it coming in time for the party). I will then mail it out that Monday before the party via USPS Priority Mail 2 day, with a tracking number, so rest assured you will receive it in plenty of time for your party.
Done free hand with oil based paint-if you want to reuse the chalkboard, I can do it in chalk-just ask.

Each custom art piece comes on a 16x20 canvas, covered in chalkboard paint, then hand-painted with oil-based paints.

Please know that since I will custom make this piece for you, and my goal is to create a piece that will reflect the feel of your party, communication is crucial.
I will try to add as many tidbits of information about your little tyke into the chalkboard, and incorporate as many little doodles that coordinate and tie the piece together. Here are some ideas of information to provide me about your "pending toddler":
-Height, Weight
-Number of Teeth
-Favorite song, book, food, TV show, etc.
-Preferred activity/activities
-Any important milestones reached (first word(s), first steps, etc.)
*I suggest that you try to keep to around 10 details, and use as little verbiage as possible.*

Don't see what you like? TRY ME. I will work with you to create a perfect piece for your needs.

I can also design and create chalkboard art/hand lettering with other sizes of canvases, just send me a message and I can create a custom listing that's price reflects your request.
