Decorating is definitely not one of my strongest abilities. I have all of these ideas in my head, but they never seem to come out quite how I envision them. One thing I have really struggled with is decorating my children’s bedrooms. I know what I want them to look like, but it just doesn’t seem to happen. Etsy shop Bee Happy Art recently sent me some adorable Personalized Mounted Prints for my children’s room walls. They are perfect for my children’s rooms walls.
I love Etsy shops. I used to have one where I sold some of my sewing work. Sadly, I got too busy with kids and had to close down for now, but I know firsthand the love and talent that goes into the creations on Etsy. I loved the chance to review Elizabeth’s Artwork from Bee Happy Art. A little background about Elizabeth:
I am a stay at home Mum of 2 from the Northwest of England, I gained an illustration degree a good few years ago, then travelled the world where I fell in love, got married, fell into a corporate job and lived overseas for 5 years. I eventually moved back to the UK in 2006 and after having my first little boy in 2009 picked up my paint brushes again and decided to create some animal art for his room … this was to be the beginning of ‘Bee Happy Art’ my new venture back into the world of art!
I chose to review some of her adorable mounted prints using my children’s initials. Both of my girls have the initials DJM and both boys are KRM. With that in mind I set out to pick my prints. There are prints available for all letters of the alphabet with some having more than one animal to choose from.
For the girls I chose D for Dog, J for Jaybird, and M for Mouse. I requested the girls prints be on pastel colors and let Elizabeth choose which colors she thought worked best. For J I did have the choice of Jaybird or Jaguar. I chose Jaybird because I thought it seemed like the more feminine option. For the girls I chose M for Mouse.
My boys prints I thought would look better with bold colors for the backgrounds. I chose K for Koala, R for Rabbit (there was also a choice of Reindeer) and M for Monkey. I love the monkey one. I think it is my favorite of all of them. I do have a slight infatuation for monkeys and the fact that she chose to put it on red made it even better as that is my favorite color.
Image size is 6 x 6 inches printed on heavy weight silk paper. Each print comes mounted in a 1 inch wide 6 x 6 inch ice white mount with backing board attached, creating a beautiful 1 inch border around the print. Ready to stick straight onto the wall as it is or if you prefer to frame your print it will fit into any 8 x 8 inch size frame. Frame is not included.
I have not had a chance to get frames yet and to be honest I don’t know if I will. I took some ribbon and taped it to the back of each picture and hung them on tacks on the wall. I think they look great that way and I think I will probably leave them that way without frames.
The animal prints can be ordered individually ($15.53 ea) or in sets of 3 ($32.62) , 4 ($41.94), 5 ($51.26), or 6 ($59.02) or I am sure she would be happy to work with you for custom orders of other amounts. She offers a wide variety of colors for backgrounds.
The only thing I found a little strange about the pictures was the coloring on some of the letters on the pictures was a little off. Most of them have black letters, but a couple such as the mouse and the jaybird had slightly different colored letters. I think they should all be black for consistency.
My prints came very well packaged and were delivered very promptly. Elizabeth was great to work with and I would absolutely recommend ordering from her. She is obviously a very talented artist with great attention to detail.
All of these adorable prints and other personalized print items are available at Etsy Shop Bee Happy Art.
