Let Me Introduce you to...

Lanie from Lanie J and Co.

She created her blog to feed her crafty habit but has since changed it to be a tribute to her mother who died of Ovarian Cancer last October.

"My mother never thought she was an artist and what she taught me is not to wait to use the talent God gave me. My whole goal now with my blog and my shop is to leave a legacy for my daughters. If you have a dream you need to follow it. You never know the people you will touch with your talents. It is important to use the talent you are given and not squander it. Have the confidence to create what you love, and others will see that love and joy in your work. When I held Mom’s hand just a couple of days before she passed away, she said, “I think my painting days are over.” Can you imagine your crafting days being over? I can’t… there is too much yet to share!"

Here are some of her fun projects:

Flower pot- teacher gifts

Lanie loves to paint, here are some cute paintings she made to match her little girl's room

She also does calligraphy. She made this for her sister-in-law

She also has an etsy shop at Creations by Lanie, where she sells many adorable things such as:

Cute clothes pins magnets
