I have an amazing giveaway today from painter, Shaina Kay Stinard.
She paints custom, commissioned portraits of people and pets. And she is giving away one commissioned 8 x 10 single portrait to one of you!
This is how it works:
I mean, sorta. Hers will be nicer. You provide a photograph and she turns it into a painting.
She painted a portrait of Crappy Baby sleeping in a wrap (sigh, how I miss the snuggly babywearing days) a few months ago and it is gorgeous. Course now that I see her pet portraits…wouldn’t that make an awesome gift?
I asked her if she ever manages to paint around her three-year-old and she said that when she attempts to it is like this:
Which is flippin’ adorable. And makes it impossible, I’m sure. I also asked her a bunch of other things that I was going to write about, but seriously, just go check out her site or her Facebook Page.
To enter to win, just enter via the Rafflecopter thing below. Open to everyone, she’ll ship orders anywhere.
a Rafflecopter giveaway
Winner will receive 1 single portrait (8×10) with a value of $110. Orders after November 1 cannot be guaranteed Christmas delivery, but she will issue your gift recipient a gift certificate. You may also use the $110 to upgrade to a larger size or a portrait with multiple people/pets in it.
Thank you for supporting independent artist mamas!
This blog is awesome, I am a dad but can relate to so mush here. Thanks for providing some humor to my parenting also!
I have a picture of my toddler riding a gigantic (metal) rooster that is just screaming to be painted. 🙂
I’d do a portrait of my kids… or my hubby and I… or my mom…or grandma…I don’t know!!
I would love to win. I have a beautiful picture of my daughter when she was a tiny baby that would be awesome as a painting.
I’d love to have my kids painted!
I’d love to have my husband’s cat, Nancy, painted for him. She’s his best furry friend forever. 🙂
I would have a very hard time choosing which picture I would want painted, but I’m sure I would find a way! 😛
I definitely want a portrait of our family!
I would love to get one of our family pics Painted. We are going the first weekend in November to have them done. This would be perfect to have done! 🙂
I would get a portrait of our dogs.
I’d use the credit to have a picture of my daughter and I reading in a window seat together painted. We only have a handful of pictures of her and I together and that’s one I treasure.
I’d have a portrait painted of my daughter.
Probably a family pic!
My son – being goofy.
I would love to have my kids painted!
I would have a portrait of my kids or my parents (as a gift for them).
I’m in! I’d love one of these of our munchkin 🙂
I would have a picture of my kiddo and pup painted
What a great prize! I would love to get this for my best friends who just had a baby boy!
I’d have one of my favorite wedding photos painted!
I’d love to see my new baby boy or toddler done in a painting.
What a neat giveaway!
I would want a painting of me in my wedding dress breastfeeding my first girl!
You are always so great for a laugh!! Keep it up!
I took a picture a few months ago that would make a perfect painting. It’s just a simple snapshot of my son, but it captures him just perfectly.
I would love this. We have some great photos of the kids, but to have it turned into cool artwork – even better!
I have a fabulous shot of my two kids together that I’d love to have painted!
this would be such an awesome holiday gift for grandma!!!
Woo Hoo! Another give away. You rock, Crappy MOM
Sounds like fun! And a great grandparent gift 🙂
It would be really hard to choose between a portrait of our funny looking basset mix dog and our baby. Maybe I’d get one of them together!
I have this beautiful photo of my daughter reading a Mother Goose book when she was a baby. I’d love to have that painted.
A simple shot of our boys hugging on our front porch swing brings a smile (or tear) every time I see it.
I would totally get a pet portrait done!
I would love to have a picture of my kids painted.
I have an awesome picture of my husband and daughter that I’d love to have in a bigger more durable format like this. 🙂
Definitely a pic of our kids
Fabulous. This will be great with our new family photos.
Her portraits are beautiful! Not sure what I’d have painted…I guess one of my kids? They’re both screaming right now, so I’m trying to think of something more pleasant to have turned into a beautiful painting…
I would definitely have one of my son. Probably an infant picture, like sleeping in a wrap. Or maybe his wild two year self with sticking straight up ginger hair and bright blue mischievous eyes.
I’d have a photo of my 3 yr old kissing the baby painted. It’s already sort of out of focus, so perfect for a dreamy painting.
I think my dog would look great in a portrait.
I would get a portrait of my boyfriend’s dog! She’s quite elderly now and it would be a lovely way to remember her later.
This is my kind of give away! Though if I win, I guess I have to find a decent photo of my 2 boys together so as to not pick a favourite 😉
I’d have a photo of my family painted. Possibly to give as a Christmas gift, but probably to keep for myself. 🙂
I would pick an older photo that’s sentimental to my mom or MIL and gift it to them. Either one of them would be in loooove with a gift like that.
Would love a painting of my brand spankin new baby boy!
This is a great giveaway! We just did a family photo shoot for my son’s 1st birthday… I’d probably pick one of those pictures. The cake smash pictures didn’t look so good. It turns out he’s allergic to milk, which was in the frosting and cake. 🙁 Poor guy.
I’d have my kids and puppers painted!
Awesome! One small, potential problem… every photo I’ve taken of my son in the last 2.5 years is blurry because he doesn’t stop moving.
I would use something from our most recent family photos 🙂
A picture of my daughter… or our wedding… or my daughters birthday party… oh the possibilities! Thank you!
So cool! I’m not sure what I’d have painted. Probably my daughter 🙂
Love both of your artistry! Would you also consider Crappifying pictures as a give-away?
I’m not sure what I’d have painted. I would probably commission a photographer to take an updated photo of my 3 kids, then have her paint that.
What a wonderful giveaway! I’d of course have a painting of my 2 sons done, just not sure which picture it would be.
I’d love to have our dogs painted because it’s impossible to get them to both look nice at once in one photo!
I would have a picture of my three-legged dog painted!
I moved into my house in ’08 and have YET to hang a single photo of me and my husband, my 17-month-old daughter, or our four Shih Tzus so winning this might help! 🙂
I would have my favorite picture of my (now 11 year old) baby girl painted 🙂
I’d have a picture of my kids done. Or maybe one of me. I never think of me.
Aww, I love her pet paintings so I probably would get one of the cat I grew up with who still lives with my parents.
I’d like to get my picture of grandpa holding both kids
Cool. Thanks for this opportunity 🙂
Very cool! I’d love to get one of these of my daughter!
Is get a pic of our late dog, Ozzy.

I’d choose a pic of my kids! 😀
She does beautiful work!!
I have a photo of my boys actually getting along doing something. *getting along* is the key.
Always makes me laugh!
I would love to get a painting done of my son!
I would probably have one of my daughter’s first birthday pictures done.
Luv this contest! Pick me!
Oooooh!! Crapifying a picture as a giveaway would be sweet!!! If I won this one I’d likely get one of our pets done, or perhaps all four!! Or maybe a family pic. Too hard to decide!
I like you more all the time! You’re a homeschooler AND a babywearer? Awesome. 😉 I would have a pic of my daughter.
I don’t have any kids yet, but I have what I am sure is the cutest dog ever and I have the perfect picture to have recreated!!
I’d totally have my two kids painted!
Definitely my dog. The best looking member of the family!
I would love to get a painting of my son 🙂

I’d love to have a picture done with both my kids in it!
I’d get a painting of my boys!
We’re about to get some newborn photos done. Would love one turned into a painting!
I’d get one of my two year old and her little sister who passed this summer.
Family portrait totally.
Her pictures are beautiful! No doubt I’d choose to have my twins painted. Everything is about them these days. The poor cats got pushed to the bottom of the pile.
Of course I’d have my kids painted… though I’m not sure which picture I would pick!
What a sweet giveaway! Love this!
I would love to get a picture done!
What a sweet giveaway! I have a few pictures of my 6 1/2 month old son that I’d love to have painted! With his big blue sparkly eyes and drool-covered chin 🙂
Great giveaway! And I’m in the process of lending the Crappy Pictures to yet another mom friend of mine.
Samples of her work on the website are wonderful 🙂
My son holding his new baby sister!
This is so cool!!
This would be wonderful for our little Bean!
Not sure what I’d want painted, maybe my daughter
I would love a portrait of my son! 🙂
Awesome give away. 🙂 I’ve always admired those painting out of a photo things.
It would be a very hard decision too figure out what picture to use!
How to decide – a cute painting of one of our cats – do you think the other two would get jealous or a painting of our only – I think I know just the one.
I’d probably do a picture of our daughter and her cat – two of the cutest things I can think of!
I have a picture of my 9month old stuffing a shell into his mouth from our beach trip this summer. I’d love to have that painted!
I’d probably go with one of the picture of my daughter from around 9 month old.
I would get a painting of my daughter.
This looks like a ton of fun 🙂
I hate to be a copycat but I’d totally get a painting of my 7 month old wrapped on my back. 😀
What a great contest, I would love to see her work on my family
I would get a painting of Dr. Who. Matt Smith, of course.
I would love to have a picture of my daughter painted for my parents, the only problem is I might need 2 so the other set of grandparents could have one as well. As always thanks for the great giveaways!
I’d love a picture of my kids! Yeah, pretty sappy. 🙂
I’d have a picture of my son and husband painted- from before he started his cancer battle, so they can both remember the silly/fun times.
I think I would have her paint a pic of a frog for my baby’s nursery.
I have no idea what is have painted but definitely a picture of my kids
I love YOUR paintings – I’ll take someone else’s if I win… but want one from you too. 😀
Not sure what picture I’d have painted… maybe one of my dog… plenty other photos / paintings / art of my daughter around the house…
Love your blog! Would love to win a painting, too. 🙂
Wow her paintings are awesome! I would love to get one of my sons.
My mother in law just took a beautiful picture of our family in a pile of leaves! I wonder if Shaina can paint my son less grumpy looking…lol!

Oh man I would love a painting of our daughter who just turned three
This is a great giveaway, thank you!

I think I would get my sister’s pooch painted for her. He’s getting up there in age and I know it’s going to be so hard on her when he leaves this world.
I’d either have a family pic or one of the three kids. Although we do have an amazing one of the oldest two smiling and laughing (you know actually getting along)

I’d love a painting of my whole family!

I would love a portrait of our little guy. We have framed baby photos but since he started walking there doesn’t seem time to get more recent ones done!
My boys are the most beautiful little guys in the world– and I’m totally not biased 🙂 Would love to have a painting of them.
My kiddos, for sure! What a fantastic gift this would make. 🙂
Ooh, ooh! My parents are coming up on their 40th anniversary and i was JUST thinking i wanted to commission a painted portrait of them as a gift, but i wasn’t sure where to start! Serendipity!
I have a fantastic picture of my three kiddos that I’d pick!
I just had our last baby a little over five weeks ago, so I’d have a portrait of my three babies painted. 🙂
Hmmm. A cool portrait, eh? I suppose I’d probably get one done of my sweet wee boy, but I’d be sorely tempted to get one done of the cat. Thanks for the awesome stories (and giveaways).
I’d have a piccie of my our family painted x
A pic of our little one, I’m sure. Would be hard to choose which, but what a nice problem ‘twould be to have!
The older my baby boy gets, the more i appreciate your blog, Amber. Thank you so much for your Crappy Pictures!

Would love a painting!
How fun! Would make such a great gift!
I would have a picture of my two kiddos (both under 3) hugging. SOOO CUTE!!
Of course, I’d have to somehow TAKE the picture first…
I’d get a picture of my dad with my boys painted.
Honestly, a portrait from my wedding day. It’s been 4 years and 2 babies, and I don’t have a single photo up from the day.
I see she’s from SC, that’s cool. I’ll be visiting this Christmas.
Would love to win this! My painting would be of my adorable 3.5 year old!
I would get a portrait of our new rescued dog!
Id love to get a portrait made of my goddaughter, as a gift for her mom and my best friend. We’ve been friends for 20 years this year, and I’ve been searching for the perfect gift. I think this is it!
This would be so great as we just had the last of our babies this past April. He was a “surprise” but he’s pretty awesome now that he’s here. So, he’s a keeper! 😉
Her work is really awesome. Thanks for sharing this Amber!
I’d love a portrait of my girls – totally worth the upgrade.
Hmmmm… kid or dog… kid or dog?

Great giveaway! I would probably have my kids painted, because it seems wrong to choose the dog over them.

Thanks for all the cool give aways!
So many possibilities! What a great idea!
I’m rather stumped as to what I’d choose to be honest!
This would make a great holiday gift for my friend who has a beautiful new baby girl. Or I could be selfish and get one done of our cat and dog snuggling…
I’d take one of my favorite baby pictures of my daughteraand have it made into a painting!
What a great giveaway. I would get one done of my kids.
I would have to go with a picture of my two son’s together.
I would have a picture of my family or kids painted.
What beautiful and unique work! I would love a picture of my home. (I know I should say “my kids!!”- sorry!) but there is a strong chance we are moving after only three years here in our first home. While we are excited by this unexpected opportunity, we thought this would be the home we would grow old in. This home and its memories will always mean so much to us!
I love all of the dog portraits – super cute!
I might just want one of myself!
I would have a painting done of my mom and I 🙂
Ermahgerhd!! Painting with a kiddo on the loose!!

I love pictures! Especially crappy ones!
My two children…oh, they just grow so fast.

A picture of my son, of course.
Looks like a great service!! Neat.
I would love to have a photo of my kids painted
I’m not sure what I would get painted. May have to get an update family picture!
Lovely idea- I would do one of my boys. Or maybe use it to upgrade to a picture of both of them 🙂
Pick me! Pick me!
I’d have a portrait of my husband and son done! 🙂

I’d probably have a Christmas present done for my parents!
I’d probably have a Christmas present done for my parents! Oops wrong email address on the first one

I would love to get one of my two boys.
I’d get a painting of my niece and nephew for my sister. She’d love it!
I would love to say that I would want my kids painted (and I do) but I’d rather have a portrait of my dog. *sorry kids*
I think I would have a picture of my grandparents done. My grandpa died before my second punk was born so three of my punks never got to meet him. He was an incredibly wonderful man.
Thanks for the opportunity to win! I would have my dog painted. He’s pretty lazy, so it shouldn’t be hard to get a picture. My kids come out too blurry.
Hmmmm. This is a tough one. I think I’d get a painting of myself. That sounds reasonably egotistical…however, I have a good reason. I remember staring a portrait of my mom when I was a little kid. I love that painting. It captured her spark, that mischievous yet ladylike half smile she’s so often wearing. Maybe my kids would like to see a portrait of me smiling back at them. Maybe.
what an awesome giveaway! i would love this as a Christmas gift. and thanks for international shipping!
oops, forgot to say what i’d have painted. probably my chicken.
What a generous giveaway.

I would get a picture of my son painted!
I’d give this photo op to my baby niece! <3
neat idea! thanks to both of you! i hope to win a crappy painting! 😉
I have 16 month old twin boys, so I’d definitely choose one of the (billion) pictures I have of them. =)
I would love to get a painting if my twins wrapped together just after they came home from the NICU. It was the last time they were still, quiet and sleeping. That was 18 mos ago.
We will be moving from our house of 30 years and where we raised our two “crappy” children. I would love a painting of that house!
I would have a portrait done of the picture of my grandmother from when she was 20. She was so beautiful.
This would make an amazing gift! I’ll probably get it done anyway if I don’t win. Thanks for introducing us to Shania. 🙂
Kids or cats … I guess I’d have my kids painted 🙂
I don’t know which picture I would choose, but it would be definitely one of my kids…and then I’d have to commission one of my second kid…so they don’t feel like a loser.
I think I’d use it toward a painting of my angel son and my soon-to-be born rainbow son as newborns… I bet she could do something like that!
I’d probably go with something of the kid. He’s way cuter than either of us anyway. 🙂
As always, I am a huge fan of Crappy Pictures… I would give this to my SIL as a surprise: she has one child whereas I have 2. 🙂
I plan on doing a picture of my second son, Thomas. I already have a painting and pastel done of my oldest, and plan on getting at least one artistic rendering of each of my 4 boys.
I’d paint my dog. Or Mean Lady’s baby, Mean Baby (she’s my Pilates instructor and she’s really mean when she’s my instructor and her baby is violent and loud and a thug and I love her to death). Or my dog and Mean Baby together.
Thanks for the contest!
I just might gift this to a friend.
I’d use a picture of the first time my daughter met her newborn brother <3
My daughter, maybe with the pups
A family portrait with the new addition coming January, BH!
My two poopers – Mia and Belle (poopers are our loving name for the dogs).
My 3 boys – they are 16, 13 and 1 and the older two just love their baby brother and having that love captured in a painting would be awesome.
I would get my 4yr old daughter, 2yr old nephew & newborn nephew painted. Would be an awesome Christmas present for my parents 🙂
My twins first birthday picture. It’s one of my favorites- they are smiling huge happy giggly smiles. Love.
This would by far be the nicest thing I would ever hang in my house. I don’t have any “nice” pictures of my son hung. And I love discovering new art! Crossing my fingers for my first win of anything ever!!!
I would have her paint my favorite photo of my son.
So cool! It would be a great Christmas gift to my husband. I’d pick a photo if my kids.
I wanna win

We could actually have a proper family portrait!
I’d probably have one of my daughter’s newborn photos painted.
I know a ton of people that would love this as a gift! Such as myself!
Love this blog!! I would have my 6 month old son painted.
I think I would probably choose one of my dog. it feels weird not to pick my son…but, I still get to see him every day, my dog I don’t.
I should pick my kids, but I might pick my cats. I feel really torn and first world about how torn I feel.
I would have a picture of my daughter painted!
I would have one of my sweet babes, they are precious!
I’d love to have a painting of my twins. They are almost 2.

I would have my daughter with one of my cats painted.
Your blog is one of my favorite things to read ever. I hope I’ll win a fancy sweet painting of my horde of boys, but I’d probably be just as happy (if not more in love) with a portrait done by you so I could giggle every time I looked at it! My hubby won’t let me read pieces of your book out loud to him any more….but I swear I caught him reading it the other day lol. Thanks for the giveaway!
Not sure what we could have painted. Our newest little one is still in the NICU, so that would make a family portrait tough.
This is awesome.
I would have a painting of our only son, Edison, 2.
I would have a portrait of my sons done, ages 3 and newborn… Precious.
What a fun giveaway! It would be hard to decide which kid would be cutest on canvas–probably would depend on whoever is whining the least that day.
My girls! Something so “them”… The ,goofy, silly everyday normal pics of them 🙂
I would love to have a portrait done of my toddler and newborn as a gift to my husband. Her work is amazing!
These are so cool! I’d have her paint a photo of my girls together. I love when they play nicely 🙂
A picture of both my girls sitting on some steps while doing actions to and singing a song 🙂
Would love a painting of our toddler and his soon-to-be baby sister together 🙂
Awesome! I’d love to have that
This looks fab! Fingers crossed!

I’d love this for my friend, she lost her little one to drowning a few years ago
I’d have a picture of my two children painted!
I’d love a portrait of my five year old.
I took a beautiful picture of my son the other day. I would love to have that painted. It would make a lovely gift for my Mum. Thank you for the contest and the chance to win.
Ooo, I’d love a painting of me with my two littles. This is probably my last baby (he’s 4 months old now, his brother is 2), so I don’t want to forget what they look like this small.
Me! Pick me!
How cool! Would be a great present for the grandparents.
I’m going to have her paint from a photo of when the little people were really little.
First time here…really enjoyed the book!
I don’t know how the contest thingy works; I clicked on enter comment, but then it said comment entered without letting me enter one. Hopefully, I didn’t make a blank post!
If I womn, I’d be boring and get an image of my little one.
What a great idea!!
So cool! I would definitely do a picture of my boy, or maybe one of him and the new baby that’s coming in April. It’s hard to choose which one, though!
I would love to win (and would probably have my kids or dogs painted), but I so appreciate the gift idea either way!
How do you pick just one picture to memorialize like this? These are great!
I would have a picture with myself, husband, and little girl.
There’s a great picture of my nieces daintily eating ice cream while my older son is snarfing his while looking defiantly at the camera. I don’t know if it would be too complicated, thought. And my younger son would get kind of bitter.
I have the perfect picture!!!
We moved to a new house 15 months ago and STILL haven’t put anything up on the walls yet. A painting of the kids (or the dog, our first child) would be perfect!
The paintings are beautiful! I would love to have a portrait of our cat Bailey who passed away this summer to give to my boyfriend. He was his best friend and I think it would be a sweet tribute to his life.
I’d love a painting of my son. thank you for the giveaway 🙂
Great giveaway! Her paintings look wonderful and your blog is wonderful, as always.
Hi! BWing is the best! If I win, how will I choose which wrapping picture to use?!
Great offer! My author’s photo would probably be my choice of painting.
usually I would say if I won I would get a portrait of my boys. Today, however, I am picking up the ashes of Amber, my beloved dog, who sat by my side for a whole year after I recovered from heart surgery. And every day before and after too. The only girl in my otherwise testererone infused household. I miss her terribly. Sniff. Sniff.
[Amber has always been my favorite name :)]
Thank you to this Amber doing a giveaway, for always brightening dreary days with your fantastic humor!
I’d have one of the pictures the ‘school photographer’ in kindergarten took of my baby daughter painted. They obviously had fun during that shoot 😀
So excited! But which kid do I have painted??? Maybe I will upgrade to include 2!
I love this giveaway! We recently had our fist crappy baby and can’t get enough pictures of her, a portrait would be wonderful!
I’ve this photo of my three year old waiting on the front steps for his father to get home. It’s amazing.
I would have my newly taken family picture painted. So cool!
Her work is beautiful! I would love a painting of one of my squishy babies that aren’t so squishy anymore. 🙂
Loved her site…would definitely enjoy a painting of my wee one!
Love her paintings!
Love your blog!! 🙂
Id have a picture of my kiddos painted! Thanks for the giveaway!!
I’ve admired this concept for awhile–would love a painting of my family! 🙂
This is such an awesome idea! I’ve seen the photograph-to-painting thing before, but could never afford it. 🙂
Hi, I love you. Okay, bye.
I would get a portrait of my favorite picture of my girls playing in the leaves.
Love it! Adds some style to a regular photo. I’d upgrade to get one of both my kiddos done using one of the rare pics where they are smiling at the same time, together.
Aw, I wonder if she could do one of my boy in the “Hundred Acre Wood!”
Love it! I already have the perfect picture of my boy to have turned into a painting.
Such a sad comment on such an awesomely funny blog, but I’d have her paint my mother-in-law. She is starting to suffer from dementia and we fear the sparkle in her eye will fade soon.
liked her work. And you are just awesome, when I am sad, feeling lonely. Your post boost me up. So, keep up the good work.
Very cool! I’ve been wanting to get something like this made of my cat to help my girls remember him. Or I guess I could get a pic made of my real, live children- haha!
That’s such a great idea!
A painting of my newborn!
I would love a painting of my son and our cat. They are best buds, it’s adorable. T says goodnight to Hobbes every night and gives him hugs. We *almost* named our son Calvin, but we thought that was asking for trouble since the cat was there first.
I’d have a picture of my son painted. :0)
I have an adorable child, but I’m pretty sure I’d get a painting of my departed dog. He had amazing hair; it needs to be committed to something more permanent than a photograph.
Or this weirdly cool photo I took of copulating beetles. That could be awesome too… but I guess they weren’t pets…. but they did live in my yard, so….
I would have a picture of my 5 year old twins painted. Thanks for the giveaway!
i’d have to find a good picture of all three of my kids to have painted… do i have one of those? 😉
I totally would paint my three baby girls! 🙂
Those pet paintings are awesome. Now I just have to go get a pet. 😉
I would love a picture of my son painted!!
I would have a photo of my jack Russell terrier painted!
Torn: I have an adorable 8 year old son but my chihuahua/toy fox terrier mix is pretty much the cutest little dog around, so maybe a picture with both?
It would be so difficult to choose *one* picture of my two small children – because how often are they both happy and looking at the camera at the same time. But it will be fun to try and find that one!
Would love a portrait of our pug for our new home!
I would want her to paint my two kids!
I would love to have a pic of my daughter painted! This would be so nice!
Probably our family, or just my son. Or maybe a random tree.
Baby Boy sleeping at the boob with his long beautiful lashes!
I’d have one of my maternity portraits painted 🙂
I love your site and I would love a picture done of my daughter, she will be one years old in November and it would be perfect! Thank you for making me laugh! You got me through some crazy baby times, I get so excited every time I see a new post! Thanks amber, keep it up!
I’d have her paint a picture of my twelve month old hugging his one month old twin brothers.
My daughter, for sure. She’s an only child, so I’m not playing favourites.
I would love to have my son’s picture painted! I have a perfect one in mind too.. from when he was about 5 months old (is now almost 2)
I have a picture of my son that I love from several years ago. I’ve always wanted it made into a painting!
I would paint my son before he gets too big to fit on the canvas. Saying that he already is 🙁
Looking for a few more entry points 🙂

Thanks for the chance to win…would love to have a painting of some awesome pictures we just had taken!!

That would make an awesome Christmas gift!
I think it would be a picture of me and my daughter. Or maybe one of her when she was first born. That seems like a good idea. Honestly, I may jsut wait until I win to decide. Too lazy today. Crossing fingers I win! 🙂
I would have a portrait of my cat done!
Probably a photo of my kids. 🙂

I have a great photo of my son eating his first birthday cake that I’d get painted.
Loved reading all these custom painting ideas!!!!! So exciting and I really hope people contact me even if they don’t win!!!! I will be glad to give a discount!!! Thank you again, so much, Amber!!!!
Any nice picture of my son! We have a massive shortage of pictures of him, not always our fault. Picture week at preschool yay! Nope my son is super sick, ahhhhh he will never let us live it down, but a nice custom painting to help offset!!
OMG this is awesome Amber! I think I will get a pic of my boys <3
Can’t decide if I would have her paint my three kiddos or our dog. 🙂
What an amazing idea!
My little one year old loves to eat black beans, she squishes them and gets it all over her face- its the most adorable thing to see. Id want a painting of that!
We’re always the lookout for different styles of photography and art to hang around the house. This may be a present for my husband for Christmas!
Sounds lovely. here’s hopin’!
I would have a picture of my toddler snuggling with my dog. My dog passed away last week, so this would be an amazing thing to have.
I’d have a photo I took of my three kids wearing lone ranger masks painted!
I love your posts and I am also experiencing the effing 4’s. It’s good these kids are cute otherwise I’d have to toss em out! So a painting of my cute angels would be lovely. 🙂
I would love to have this done with one of our family pictures. And yes, probably one that the dog is in 🙂
I Love The Ring Of Fire Reference In The Raffle Section.
I would get a picture of my dog Whiskey painted. He has been my best bud for 15 years and counting.

I’d have one of my daughter and her silliness painted. 🙂
Very cool! I’d want a painting of my baby with his fur brother. 🙂
I would love a painting of my kids!
I would have a picture of me and my husband painted. Maybe in celebration of our 2-year anniversary.
Shaina is so talented. I love the portraits. I am debating on a picture of my 3 girls or one of my husband and me. Leaning toward the 2nd because I have so many pictures of my kids hanging, but none of me and hubs.
It would probably be a picture of my son but I have so many it will be hard to choose one!
If I won I would get this family photo done:
My daughter, Lilith, is only 4 weeks old there.
I’d have my girls and my service pup in training painted. Or my girls with their horse. Or just my girls. Hmmm…
I’d do a portrait of my little girl!
I’d have a family portrait painted.
How neat! I’d love to win 🙂
“I right here, Mommy!” Awesome.
I supposed I should say my kids…but my dogs are so cute! 😉
P.s. love your blog crappy mama!
I would love to get one of my girls!
If I win the drawing, I would have a picture done of my 4 month old – he’s the youngest of ten and so he deserves to get his picture ‘painted’ 🙂
I’d love a family portrait! These are really beautiful
either a mommy & me selfie or him climbing on daddy on father’s day!
My sons! Thanks for the chance to win!
I would have my son’s first time meeting the ocean painted. I’m laughing, he’s adorable in it, just 4-5 months old, and a big floppy hat is involved. It’s one of my favs 🙂
We just had our 4th (and last!) child last month and I have a great picture of all 4 kids together that I would choose.
We had anniversary photos done and included the kids…I’d love to get that as art!
I would have a picture of my 4 mo old baby boy done.
