Nivano Paint Party to Benefit JDRF

I was so excited to host this #kmccelebration for Dr. Plante and her staff at Nivano Health Care in Roseville last night. Dr. Plante bid and won this paint party I donated to the Juvenile Diabetes foundation. What a fun night – I had been itchin’ to do an ADULT paint party, no offense kiddos LOL (insert adult beverage here). Only $30 a person and I bring the party to you people…let’s do some more!


Mother’s Day Paint Party!

I was honored to host a Mother’s Day themed paint party at KinderCare today! My skillful assistant Lucy was on hand as well to pass out compliments and eat as many mini muffins as possible:) LOL. To combine my love of painting and kiddos for such a sweet purpose made my heart full!

The little painters ages ranged from 4 months to over 5 years old so we chose to keep the actual image and end product open-ended. Beautiful and diverse creativity ultimately ensued depending on each painter’s skill level. The canvases were each 9×12″ and once hot glued together, became a mommy-kiddo masterpiece! Acrylic paint was used and most pieces were embellished with glitter, pom poms, bells, googly eyes and ribbon. Some duos painted hearts, or a rainbow, or even a flower. Even the babies got in on it too… literally using their little hands and tootsies.

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone and I’ve sure kicked off my weekend with a blast!


Over the Anime Rainbow…Mural

Welp, this mural couldn’t be more perfect for both the client and the weather we’ve been having! I really love the chance to brighten a room with a fresh coat of paint and a cute little rainbow. Depending on your mood, I guess both clouds are relatable at some point, huh? This mural is roughly 4×4′, acrylic and took 7 hours to complete. The periwinkle blue background is regular glossy interior house paint found in mis-tint section of Walmart! You can’t tell from the photos but a subtle layer of sparkle was added to the cloud cheeks and stars throughout. Can’t wait to do another mural – commission me yesterday people….I love to paint!:) xo


La Peinture la Tour Eiffel

Oui Oui! These artists were MAGNIFIQUE! Birthday girl Emi chose a basic image of the Eiffel Tower that they then personalized in unique, fun ways:) Let’s just say glitter was a major player in their creative game LOL.

The party was a blast – I wasn’t there for all of it though….turns out the party day/time changed last minute and we had to improvise! I sent all the supplies, step-by-step painting instructions, pictures of how to set up the paint stations and pre-sketched canvases ahead of time. I joined them half way through and thankfully, it all worked out.

Emi was such a sweet girl and modeled mini sculptures of a palette and brush for me as a thank you gift. I know I always say it but….THESE PAINT PARTIES ARE SO FUN!paris-1paris-2paris-3


A Waddle of fun painting Penguins!

Apparently a waddle is a group of penguins on land (yes I had to Google it LOL:).

Anyways, I was fortunate enough to paint with a talented group of young ladies for the birthday girl’s 11th birthday party yesterday! It was the perfect rainy day activity and they were so focused, very impressive. In fact, the birthday girl kept painting for another hour after the party was over!! I’m always amazed at how diverse the final paintings are, even though we start with the same inspirational image and pre-sketched canvases.

FAITHFUL Paint Party Afternoon!

What an amazing afternoon with the lovely ladies of Mt. Calvary Baptist Church painting a FAITH inspired piece today. Although they were all “beginners” I was truly impressed with their creativity, perseverance when things got tough (darn infinity loop LOL) and natural talent. Thank you again to Kita for the referral and Nene for the opportunity to paint with you.

Did you know that for the small, measly price of just $30 per person, you can have a paint party brought to you? It includes everything you need, except the optional beverages and food:) You can choose the image or theme (which I can help with of course) and I guide you through the process so the end result is an amazing creation by YOU!

Please call/text 707-548-0772 or email or Facebook message/comment me about booking your KM Creation Celebration TODAY!

Who wants to do a Valentine’s Couple themed one, huh?! xo

Freshened up the Kitchen, just in time for the Holidays

So, while this might not be for everyone, it is for me…..and maybe you too?! We plan to remodel/overhaul our kitchen (someday soon I hope) but for now, why not slap some fresh paint on to make a huge difference for cheap? I know, I know, it may just be a band aid on an old, tiny little kitchen but it makes me happier, ok? LOL. Huge thank you to my husband for trusting me and allowing me to create!!

I picked a periwinkle blue in the same tone as the tan/orange original cabinetry so they vibe together (and it’s less painting for me on something we will eventually demolish). BTW: go to Walmart for your paint needs! Only $15 for a gallon of paint as opposed to Sherman Williams $30….

Then I figured – why not paint the cabinet door into an Venice cityscape of sorts? It was a newer cabinet we had installed to replace the super old double oven previously living there and was different in color than the other cabinets (unfinished/unvarnished/plain wood); it lent itself to this painting nicely.
