The urbanmoms.ca Marketplace features a different mom-based business each week. This week, we're pleased to bring you Julie's story:
Sweet Dreams personalized wall art and decor is currently an online store. Sweet Dreams sells personalized canvas art, canvas board letters and fun whimsical wall art. The newest addition to my store is hand painted drawer knobs. What makes my site different is that my work is all original OOAK hand painted with no reproductions. Most of my clients have asked for custom work to match the décor of their room of choice. I work from my home in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
I started my business when my daughter was just over 5 months old. She is now 9 1/2 months. I have always been very creative and I used to paint and sell abstract, landscape and contemporary pieces online and in retail stores. When I was pregnant with Mckenna I guess you could say my creative flair turned a new leaf. I started painting animals on Mckenna’s wall to match her bedding and décor.
After I was done and the furniture was all in place, I still felt that something was missing other than my daughter of course. Ha ha. This is when I came up with Sweet Dreams personalized wall art. It’s very difficult to find original personalized paintings to match your nursery or child’s room décor. Now my clients tell me the exact colors, theme and design they want and I custom create an OOAK piece for their room of choice.
I hope you enjoy taking a look at my creative pieces and remember if you can't find exactly what you are looking for just ask and I will custom create a piece specifically for your little one.
