The Commission Project is launching for the 2014 holiday season! The Commission Project is an affordable way to get a commissioned painting by Paul Ferney for your family.We do this every year around the holidays because it makes the perfect gift. It’s already in it’s fifth year! The way it works is you purchase a commission right here , choose a frame color and send a photo by September 5th to firstname.lastname@example.org for approval, then wait by your mailbox for your painting. All paintings will be shipped framed and ready to hang no later than December 1st. You can check out more sample pictures and see more information right here. It sells out fast so act quickly! (It’s already 75% sold out.) Here are the two I had done of Moses and Roman last year.
Updated: This round is sold out but if you want to be the first to hear about this in the future, sign up for the email list right here.
This Saturday is National Toasted Marshmallow Day (seriously!) which is the perfect excuse to roast a few s’mores before summer ends. But in case you’re feeling more adventurous, here are a few other ways you could celebrate:
S’mores Fudge Bars?! How have I not heard of these before?
A GENIUS way to use your grill.
These cupcakes look divine.
All the best things about summer jammed into one perfect little sandwich.
The most beautiful pie I’ve ever seen.
As summer draws to a close, we’re starting to get excited about going back to school. These cupcake and sweet little toppers just might be the perfect after-school celebration treat for a good first day!

Thank you so much for all the support with the launch last week of my new company Bright Lab Lights! I started working on this almost two years ago with my brother and my friend. The last time I owned a business like this was my short-lived Etsy shop 7 years ago. Ha! It has been a really great challenge to do something I’ve never done before, I really love it. Before we head into the weekend I wanted to give some shoutouts to a few people who helped us.
First, Kendra Smoot and Alpha Smoot for styling and photographing the photos so perfectly for our website. They are both so talented and easy to work with. The photos came out better than I could have imagined.
