Studio M Designs...Designer, Decorator and Artist!

Have you ever met someone that just amazes you? Someone that is sooo talented that it seems like there is nothing they can't do? Well the Spotlight this week is just that kind of "someone"...

Let me introduce to you, Misti.

Misti is a very talented Designer, Decorator, Artist, Business Owner, Blog Writer and currently studying to be a Medical Transcriptionist! She does everything from flower arrangements, to Home Staging and personalized children's artwork. Misti loves being a mother to 3 wonderful boys, and a wife to a loving husband. She's also an animal lover with 4 cats and 1 dog. Somehow she manages to do all this and more!

She can paint just about anything. Big things, small things, faux things and mural things. I know...I am beginning to sound a little like Dr. Seuss, which only makes me want to show you more things, like the Sknobs she painted and sells in her Etsy shop.

Fun and Whimsy!

that were inspired by this...

And would look great with this too!

You can read all about this fun on her blog.

Other things to read and see are her posts on design, artwork, and inspirational pictures. Recently she started a series called, "I Confess My Love Of..." showing all her passions on many things. I love to read of her travels and even peek into her basement full of treasures, waiting to have a transformation. Misti also share's beautiful pictures of her home and family, where she lives in Georgia.

Such a gorgeous home!

I love all the luscious green...
you don't see a lot of this in New Mexico.

One of her posts talks about mowing this yard...and the sides...let's not forget the backyard too! Whew~ That is a lot of work!

This kitchen is Divine! .

Just one of her beautiful painted projects.

She even shows some tutorials on artwork for your home.

Misti does wonderful murals for children's rooms!

How cute are these Sknobs!

Artwork for a child's bedroom.

Look at the detail! These would be so cute displayed in a bowl.

One of my favorites!

As you can see Painting is one of her very favorite hobbies. She says, "Instead of discarding old decor that doesn't quite "go" anymore, I just reinvent it with paint. The possibilities are endless!" Such imagination and her!

There is so much more to see on Misti's blog and in her Etsy shop! You know that my Whimsy Spotlights always give you some love. Misti is going to create a personalized 11x14 canvas painting for one lucky Winner!! She is letting you choose the colors, style, and theme, along with your family name or a childs name. Her canvas painting will add some Whimsy to your home!

She can match bedding for a child's room or a nursery.
Misti will even paint from an e-mailed talented!

Her free handed lettering is so good!
