Today I have a special treat for you:  the works of Angeline Van Laren! 

Angeline is so incredibly talented I can't stand it!  Wait until you see her shop:  My personal favorite is her scripture mugs; I have 2 I use everyday.  Coffee isn't the only thing that uplifts me in the morning!

 Adorable Twins Blank Card (6in X 6in) in Pink
 "An adorable card that is perfect for that new set of twin girls you know of! This would be beautiful to frame as a keepsake for the new babies or to use in a scrapbook. Entirely handmade by me (envelope included), it is stitched on 14-count Aida cloth and placed on coordinating card stock. I've added a little baby buggy in felt or fleece and embellished with rick-rack and button wheels. So cute!!"

Four Seasons Painting
"A beautiful canvas painting of all four seasons in one. 'There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.'
This tree depicts all of the seasons that life goes through - a new spring, a growing summer, a gentle fall, and a restful winter.
I have painted it in acrylic paints and finished it with a clear coat for protection.
Size: 12" X 16"
I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed painting it."

 Moon and Stars Bookmark
"A beautiful hand stitched moon and stars bookmark is just what you need to hold your place in your book! Or, give it as a gift to that reader you know.
This bookmark is designed, pricked, and stitched by me, then placed on matching card stock to frame it.

 Hand painted Blue Dragon Art Journal Book
"A beautifully hand painted art journal book that will appeal to most young male artists! The blue dragon is painted on a '9 X '12 hardcover art sketchbook. It has 80 acid free sheets to draw, write, or color on (that's 160 with both sides). It has a spiral binding that makes it easier to lay flat. The pages are perforated, so they can easily be taken out to display or frame.
Inspiration came from my son who wanted a painted book like his sisters, but not really flowers - understandably. So I painted a gold dragon for him and wrote...
'Cole's Dragonology'
...on the front. He only wanted to draw dragon in his. He has picked the color for this one, but if you want this dragon in a different color, let me know.
I can personalize any of my books, just let me know what name you would like on it.
'Cole's Art and Drawing Book'
'Dave's Artistic Journal'
'My Works of Art'  "

 Hand painted Small Bamboo Hairbrush with Purple Pansies
 "This is a small bamboo hair brush, 2 1/2 inches wide by 9 inches long including the handle. It has been carefully hand-painted with acrylic paints specific for wood to prevent chipping.
This hairbrush has been painted with Purple Pansies. If you would like it in a different color, please let me know, and I will paint one for you.
All of my hairbrushes can be personalized for free. Just let me know what name you would like on it in the 'notes' section. It would make a lovely keepsake gift for you or a loved one. Each of my daughters (I have four) has a different flower with their own name on it, and they love them!"

All Occasion Boat Card (6in X 6in)
"A great Father's Day card, birthday card, or any occasion card! The light blue on the darker blue background really stands out. Entirely handmade by me, (card and envelope) this card has been hand-pricked and stitched on card stock using various cotton, metallic, and silk-look threads.
I have not added any sayings to the front of the card because this would also be beautiful to put in a frame as wall art and left out to view permanently.
It is also a blank card for that reason. Inserts are available for the inside - please see the choices available under inserts. "

Hand painted Porcelain Scripture Mug God is my Refuge with Deep Violet-blue Geraniums
 "Beautiful, hand painted, deep violet-blue Geranium flowers fill this cup with an inspirational verse as a reminder of God's goodness to us.
"God is my refuge and strength; a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1"
I have painted several as gifts and given them with Tea, Hot Chocolate mixes, or Specialty coffees. They are always well received and enjoyed! They are wonderful as a meditation on God's Word through the day while you have a cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate or other beverage."

.***These are fabulous gifts. And just before Mother's Day, Father's Day, Secretary's Day, Nurse's name it!!! ***
