We are proud to announce that Michelle has been featured in an article in the Spring 2007 issue of the Benjamin Moore paint company's ProFiles Magazine.  She is one of several  decorative painters quoted by guest artist Joe Belisle in his article on pricing murals and the working relationship between decorative painters and  design contractors. 

Exclusive gift for the newborn at birth, baptism, or baby showers!

Score the biggest hit with your gift for the new parents or mother-to be!  It's a beautiful nursery wreath for baby, decorated  entirely with real, usable  baby supplies! What's more, it's personalized! 

Always included are these basics:  receiving blankets, pacifiers, teethers and/or rattles, baby socks and/or booties, mini baby products (powder, lotions, etc.), comb and brush set, and a bib. There is a coordinating bow with ribbon streamers.  I am happy to personalize the wreath with the child's name, if known.

Other items may include some of the following:   theme items or toys; hat or bonnet; feeding spoon; cup and/or bottle; bath toy; wipes; cotton swabs; syringes, medicine droppers and other hygiene items; toddler toothbrush; shoes; teddy bear ( I can include a Precious Moments bear that says a prayer); religious items (i.e. cross); doll; piggy bank; small clothing items; etc. The options are almost unlimited; however, I cannot get all of the listed items on one wreath and it is best if you let me make the selection of items that will look best artistically, except perhaps for one or two items that you tell me will mean the most to the new parents.

Please specify roses or daisies, or wreath can be made without flowers if desired.
Please specify nursery theme, if desired, and up to 3 items you especially would like included.  I will do my best to get them; however, I cannot guarantee their availability, so please offer a second-choice substitute if possible*. 

Wreaths can be made in pink, blue, yellow or white.  Custom colors available at an additional charge.

Because all wreaths are custom-made, your wreath's appearance may differ from the ones shown. However, the beauty, value and craftsmanship will be comparable. Heart-shaped wreaths not always available. 

*(There may be an additional charge for expensive or custom-made items.  If I cannot find theme items, I make them. See the nautical items--boats, anchor, and life preserver--on the boy's wreath, pictured. Themes are nursery motifs such as cars, dinosaurs, jungle, ballet, princess, sports, etc.)

Minimum price: $100 plus shipping and any additional customizing charges. Prepaid orders only.

Please allow 4 weeks for the crafting of your wreath.  For details about how to order, contact me at mm@mmorse.com or call 954-752-7562.
