Welcome to our Little Lot – Custom Christmas Sign

This is one of my favorite designs to date! (And with 2 colorways!)

Whimsical Christmas trees with hearts and snowflakes. Wording reads, "Welcome to our little lot".  Great Christmas decor for your large, small or growing family! | mamasbrush designs

Happy Advent Season, and Merry Christmas to you all! Things have been busy at my house of late, which means they’ve been slow here! I have some posts I hope to get up in the next couple weeks, so we’ll see what happens! 🙂

This is the latest version of my custom tree lots. I love my old version (one like it here), and it’s ironic claim that my family of 8 is a “little” tree lot. Sorry… I find those sorts of things fun. 🙂

This latest version was originally designed for my pastor’s wife to replace the one I hand painted for her several years ago. Almost right after I gifted it, their family decided to adopt again… a set of 4 siblings! Then their oldest married! And a baby! It was clear that I needed something that would be easy to adapt for a growing family! This is what I came up with.

These are great for large families, but you can also get them for small families. You can see several other family groupings and the second colorway at my Etsy shop.

While you are there, use coupon code TREELOT30, to get it at 30% off through Decmeber 8, 2022. I like to give my readers this exclusive discount whenever I list something new. (In fact, if you ever see something new that I haven’t talked about here yet, message me about it and I’ll give you a special discount code to save you even more! –Hint Hint).

Christmas Decor – Seek Him Wall Art

Seek Him Christmas Wall Art Print.

Matthew 2:2: "We have seen his star in the east and are come to worship Him."

Star, wisemen, baby Jesus, Seek Him
Pictured here as a 10×30 print.

As we come to the end of our Christmas in July, I have discovered that there are a couple items in my shops that I haven’t highlighted here. One of them is this “Seek Him” wall art. I love this one for a mantle or hung over the couch. It’s a little moodier than what I usually do… I love that too!

This is based on something I did years ago on wood (a lot of my stuff started hand painted on wood!) I also turned it into a vinyl project for our Christmas market a couple years ago (you can find it in the middle of the white cube shelves in this post. Not sure why it didn’t get highlighted that year.)

The focus of this piece is Matthew 2:2, the words of the wisemen: “We have seen his star in the east and are come to worship Him.” I hope it reminds all who see it that Christmas is ultimately about seeking and worshiping the King of Kings!

It is now available in large (or small) format for your digital download pleasure in my decor shop! Available for 50% off till the end of the month. It’s also available in a 1×2 format.

Christmas Decor – Mistletoe Sign

This one just makes me smile! I painted this years ago… it was one of the first paintings I was really excited about. I’ve made cards with this mistletoe on it in past years. One simply said, “tonight.” I like that one. 🙂

This past year I digitized it, making it possible to do so many more things with it… and to make it BIG! In this design, I added the words, “In this house, we do mistletoe!” I can’t wait to find a place to put it when December rolls around!

It’s 50% off right now as part of my Christmas in July sale. Print it at home or have it printed and add it to your Christmas decor this year.

Christmas in July

Of all the seasons and themes I get excited about, Christmas is one of the top. I love to illustrate and paint Christmas-y things. It’s true. Those of you who have been around a while (or, yikes, dug in to some of the archives!) know that there is a lot of Christmas on this site.

Now, fast forward to March of this year when I finally decided to open an Etsy shop. My first concern was that I had no idea what to make… Christmas was really far away! I summoned all my creative juices and prayed a lot and I did come up with some things to list that make me smile. I hope they make you smile too, at least to see them pass through your feed.

While I’ve been creating all that non-Christmas stuff, I’ve been holding a hope in the back of my mind… Christmas in July! Could I continue filling my shops with products and artwork while still preparing some Christmas for July?

I’ll have to admit it was hard. I had bigger plans than a large family and garden would allow, but I have managed to get a few things listed to kick off Christmas in July. I’ll be adding more throughout the month as I have time and I’ll be highlighting each item here beginning next week.

Don’t want to wait??? Visit my shops now to see what’s there!

Christmas Lights Family Sign

Okay, this might be my last look back at Christmas. I decided to include it so that anyone who wants to use the idea for next year can get a head start. 🙂 I’m always planning to start early for Christmas… I just never get to it. 🙂

I’ve been making these cute Christmas lights since 2016, when I first started illustrating and painting. Each year they change a little bit as my style is further developed or they are applied to new things. It started with these cute cards…

They are simple and colorful on tags and simple cards.

Last year I made these…

Again, look for the Christmas lights.

I was so excited about them. And they didn’t sell at all.

That’s okay… it happens sometimes. We’ve been doing this long enough to know that just because something doesn’t sell well one year, doesn’t mean that they won’t another year.

This year we sold one of the three I made. Okay… progress.

A few weeks later I started thinking how I’ll change them next year. Customize them with family names.

Then I got a text.

A friend from church wanted to know if I had any of these left. It was 4 days before Christmas. I got the text while my husband and I were walking the aisles in the first of 4 stores we had planned that night. In other words, while I was able to send her some pics and quote some prices, I wouldn’t be home for a while.

Then the “big ask”, as she called it. She wondered if it could be customized… in time for Christmas.

Unnecessarily long story shorter, this is what I came up with…

I was happy. She was happy. And Christmas was saved! 🙂

Until Next time,
Babychaser
