Suicide Slush

I love to paint. And guess what? So do my boys. Painting is something we do somewhat often. It is not just an activity confined to the winter getmeoutofthehouse months. Matter of fact, there is nothing better to me than a warm spring day all decked out in our play/paint clothes and the yard filled with acrylics, paper plates, canvases, and wood.

Creating. The joy of it never ceases to amaze me. I have so enjoyed watching the boys select colors, talk about their choices, and explain their art to me. There is something really so inspiring about nothing becoming so much more than something in the eye of a dreamer.

While Eli loves it just as much as Casey face, I tend to see an aspiring artist in our youngest. He already enjoys mixing paints and completely "gets" space in a drawing. His strokes whether it be with a crayon, marker, or brush seem so calibrated yet deliberately free.

Eli adores the brush. He, on the other hand, has benefited from the learned skill of this art. With brush first in hand, he used one color and revelled in it to say the least. Perhaps, he appreciates the monochromatic look?

Though now, there is purpose for his color. And I so looooooooooooove for him to explain that purpose! He has quite the convincing argument as why his elephant should be red.

A rainbow at your fingertips. A chance to create. To mix things up a bit...

That is exactly what one client gave me the opportunity to do! These personalized burp clothes are the absolute perfect baby gift.

You can choose to order a set created with a certain theme in mind.

Or perhaps, mix each burp's color scheme up in true "suicide slush" style. {A little shout out there to my evenings spent as a youngster at the ball park. The "suicide slush" was a little of every flavor added together. This was my ball park drink of choice."} Anyone remember those?

She would be so proud.

Wiping drool? Spit up? Beginning baby food?
Why not do it in style, I say!

People really enjoy these baby accessories for the practicality and cuteness they offer.

To quote the client who purchased these:

Hi Meghan!!!

I just realized I never said thank you for the burp cloths- they are awesome and so cute!!!!! Thank you so very much! I have gotten so many compliments on them - you work is so well done and beautiful. Hope you all are doing good ;-)


So on the hunt for a great baby gift for your little one or someone else's bundle of joy?

The boys and I at k.Mac would be more than happy to serve you one of our very own "suicide slushes!"


Leave a comment on this post to win a free ribbon burp with personalization! I will pick a winner Friday afternoon.

Pick me! I don't plan on a baby, but hoping for another one for my sister-so cool.
Love the painting pics. My boys all love painting-I like to frame them and make it our "art" around the house...

Oh I love the paint sets you have! We are just gettign into painting/crafting with the kiddos and Ryder has doing it too! I love watching them and seeing where they are the same and where they differ.

And as far as the comment on my blog, you SERIOUSLY crack me up! And I'm thinking it wouldn't be TOTALLY rude if we requested corsages in flowers other than the "flower of death" otherwise known as the carnation. I mean, not to toot our own horn but if it wasn't for us, our son wouldn't be a groom and we should at least have a better flower selection out of respect. I'm just sayin... ;o)

PS - ADORABLE burp cloths. If we're still wiping food and drool we might as well do it in style!! You did a great job!
