Baby Jackson's Custom Nursery Painting!

As I mentioned recently, our very close friends Corinne and Kris had a baby not too long ago. On the weekend we went to Toronto to meet the little man in person. We're in love!

That face! So much expression!! Ben seemed to like his new baby cousin too :)

We are so, so happy for this little family. I have known Corinne since we were about four years old, and meeting her son was pretty amazing. I can't wait to watch him grow up!


Before baby Jacks was born, Corinne and Kris were designing his nursery and were looking for some art. They had an adorable whale theme going on, including the Pottery Barn whale line of bedding. (FYI, TOTAL fluke that they named their baby Jackson, ha ha, such a funny coincidence!)


Anyway, we thought perhaps a matching painting would be cute! Corinne also wanted something customized with his name, and so this is what we came up with.

This was probably the most fun project I've had to date. It was so different from what I usually do, but in the end I thought it turned out pretty good! Corinne and Kris were pretty happy with it, so that's the most important thing!

  2. Oh my goodness, I can't believe I'm just seeing this post now (wow you really don't have much time anymore to check out favourite sites once a baby is in the picture :/)...Anyway, I just wanted to say that this painting is so incredible and special to all of us, including Jackson...he loves to stare at it, and I love that he can see his name in those beautiful red letters all the time :) Adriane, you went above and beyond with this painting, you put so much time and effort into it to make it perfect for us, and asked for nothing in return...thank you so so so much for this keepsake. We love you xoxoxo
