This year the theme for my Christmas decor was inspired by some twig deer I found at Pottery Barn. (See Post HERE) I wanted something cozy and rustic and I feeling that I was in the high country in Colorado.
I needed something above the fireplace mantle to pull the entire theme together. While I was browsing Goodwill looking for anything to inspire me, I came across this huge southwest painted canvas print. I know this doesn’t scream cozy cabin but it had size on it’s side and the price was right, $24.99! I had a 20 percent off coupon and my print came out to $19.99. There’s no way I could ever walk away with a canvas of this enormity for that price at a craft supply store.
I was not blessed with an artistic ability so I handed the canvas off to my friend, Stephanie, along with an inspirational photo of a deer and requested the color palette to be cream and white, along with some browns and grays.
A couple days later, she delivered!
I had my new print in my possession and as always, she did an amazing job!
It’s the perfect size and I love it’s simplicity and it’s a show piece in my family room.

I hope this inspires you to think creatively when decorating and using your friend’s natural born talents as much as possible!
‘till next time,
