pen & paint

have i got a treat for you today or have i got a treat for you today?!

the answer to that question is yes.

… 

meet my girl, lindsay.


here we are frolicking in the ocean with our babies in florida. our babies are not babies anymore and you totally cannot even see them due to hair situation i have going on.

she is my first blog friend turned IRL friend. IRL = in real life, for those who are not in the abbreviations bloggers use club. 

i love her a whole lot and the fact that she supplies beautiful art to decorate my home with doesn't hurt much either. i believe the only room in our house without a print or painting in it is the bathroom. which is about to change right… now. BOOM.



i could ramble all day about lindsay and pen and paint but really, buy her stuff. use that coupon code. you will fall in LOVE with your new art.


Hi, I'm Lindsay. I'm a busy mama of two silly little boys. I am a southern girl with a loud laugh, a sensitive heart and a little bit of sarcasm on the side. I like to draw and paint, a lot. After taking a bit of a break from the blogging and handmade world, at the beginning of 2012 to refocus on myself and my family, I picked up a sketchbook and an ink pen and started drawing. The more I drew, the more ideas I developed, and I saw the need to make a change in the name of my blog and shop of three years from Paint Me a Picture, to Pen and Paint. Now I am back gathering inspiration from the blogging and handmade community, creating happy prints. Every now and then I still love picking up my paintbrush and creating a fun piece of art.
