Holiday Gift Ideas

Hello and Happy Holidays! I get lots of questions regarding where to purchase my items and items I have designed so to help you out, I am going to put them all in one place here. There are gifts for the gardener, babies, crafters, and more. Let's get started!



There will be more info to come as we roll out new products, I have been so busy designing, I haven't had time to spread the word about this collection. I LOVE this collection, the quality is amazing. You can see (and purchase) all of the items here at the DEMDACO website. There are baby books, softies, and Mommy and Me scarves, with more products coming soon. The products and artwork were all designed by me for DEMDACO. Check them out.

Studio M


There are a lot of different designs of garden and house flags and door decor that  have painted for StudioM. They make it convenient to shop on Amazon if you can't find them at your local garden store. There are even flower pots with my painted sunflowers.
