Ahh, I LOVE my pillows

I saw these gorgeous pillows at the Provo Farmer's Market and fell in love! Since I had recently moved into a new home with no color, cute pillows became a must! I knew I needed at least 6 and at $30 each I just couldn't afford it, so I went to Joann's to buy the material and make them myself and by the time I bought fabric for only two pillows, buttons, & thread, I was already at $25!! Seriously, $25 and I didn't even have the pillows to go inside yet. I realized it was impractical to make them since Kaeley at kblossom design had already mastered it, and it would cost about the same, but I had to spend all the time doing it, so I gave her a call and traded a portrait painting of her cute son Boston for the pillows. I LOVE TRADES! It worked out so well for us both and I get compliments on my pillows DAILY! People notice the pillows before the new couch, new house, new floors, etc. etc. etc. Seriously, check her out - you won't be disappointed with the pillows you get - they make a world of a difference! She has WAY more pillows than she has time to upload to her store, because they keep selling so quickly, so if you don't see one you want online give her a call. She also does custom orders where you pick out the fabric...

It's legit, I'm really a painter now...


I'm a painter, just in case you didn't already know that, and the real reason I quit my job at KLAS is so I could focus more on what I really LOVE to do...paint! I've studied drawing and painting for almost a decade now with some of the best artists in Utah and the US and I FINALLY feel ready to open up shop! I've already had a few children's portrait commissions (above) and I have a couple more I'm waiting on images for, so to get Scott Studios up and going, I'm going to discount the price for the first 3 people who commission a portrait from $250 to $150!! You don't have to have all the details, just send me a quick note saying that you want one or comment below and I'll put you on the list. We'll work out the details later.

For other pricing info, my about me and questions on how it works, images of other portraits, drawings, landscapes, or still life paintings I've done check out my website at www.scottstudiosonline.com.

Someday I'll own a boat...

But until that day, I'll just have to go down to Moovalya Keys and let my mom and mark spoil us with theirs! Seriously, they are so generous and not only did they share their amazing Chaparral Boat, but they also rented a huge house for everyone to stay in and were the most gracious of hosts - they slept on the floor so everyone else could have a room...talk about GIVING! The Moovalya Keys are a group of homes, all with waterfront access to the canals and rear access to the streets and it is incredible! It has all the luxury of a houseboat on Lake Powell, times ten, with the comfort of staying in a home. AKA - Coleman napped in a bedroom with the door closed and didn't get off his schedule, we had unlimited air conditioning and actually got too cold in 110* weather, and we didn't have to load and unload the boat everyday. I got to swim right in front of our house while Coleman slept and I even brought my ice cream maker and made peach sorbet one day and rocky road another - it was awesome! We had a wonderful time seeing family and watching Coleman play with cousins and we even learned to wake surf! Mom and Mark - you guys are the best - thanks for always taking us on such fun trips! We had a great time with everyone who was able to go and felt so sad to leave. We have so much great family!!!











Coleman wanted some of Jenn's apple, so she generously obliged...

Wake Surfing is so fun!

Learning to wake surf - throwing in the rope was my highlight...


There's doubles...and then there's DOUBLES!! Jojo and Connelly took it to the next level!

Just to make you laugh...

video

I don't know what it is about this video, but it cracks me up! There's just something about a small human walking around in a very large hat. This was in Nordstrom and everyone was laughing, not just me and Amber - oh Coleman!

Amby came to visit!















We are so lucky! My sister, Amber, came to visit for a week a few weeks ago and we had a great time! I wish she could've stayed longer! She took Coleman on bike rides, fed the ducks, helped with the cleaning, hung out, swam, cooked dinner with me - she did it all! It was so nice to have the extra help with Coleman, but it was especially nice to spend more quality time with my little sister. She and Coleman really hit it off and he LOVED how much she played with him! He was totally spoiled. These pictures are from her camera, since I was bad about taking pics while she was here...
