*Before I start this post…if you are my Mother stop reading NOW! For those sweet friends of my Mom’s who visit regularly {?} I am swearing you to secrecy so I can surprise her with this on Mother’s Day!*

Though the wonder of the internet we encountered the art of Lacee Swan, so when we received an email about her custom art I tucked the idea away, knowing someday a print like this would make the best Mother’s Day gift ever. This year I wanted to give my sweet mom something really special, so I reached out to Lacee to create a custom art print to surprise her with.



Lacee took our photo and with her own artistic flair turned in into a keepsake print that I hope my Mom will adore for years to come. This photo was taken two years ago at my daughter’s first dance recital and while she has grown up a bit since then, I love that in the artwork my Mother and I are completely ‘ageless’ even if we aren’t in real life :)! We don’t often get photos of the three of us, so this has long been one of my favorites of us all together.



I have shared about my wonderful Mom before {her house is here, and her family room here}. This year,  in particular, she has been a tireless source of support and wisdom during some very challenging times so I knew I wanted to give her something truly special for Mother’s Day.




Lacee is not only talented but she was such a joy to work with. She made it a point to ask about different outfit/expressions and confirm all the details to ensure that the final art was just right. She even sent me a pencil sketch and a draft before she created the final art so I could be sure that she captured us perfectly. All of this happened in just a few days time and before I knew it the art print arrived at my door.

Here are some of her other Mother’s Day art prints so you can see her talent, they are all SO cute.

Custom Art Mother's Day Print


Our print captures the memory of such a happy day, and now as we continue to grow from this time in our lives we have this sweet memory captured by a talented artist. I love how whimsical and fun it is! I hope my mom likes it as much as I do, I am printing one so I have we have one for our home too, of course!

I absolutely love seeing talented women turn their artistic dreams into a business. I can think of so many occasions one of Lacee’s prints would be perfect for {some other people close to me might be getting one the future hint, hint}. Her engagement/save the date/couples sketches caught my attention for those of you in that stage of life {see below, how cute!} but mother/daughter, graduation, wedding, birthday–her art is the perfect way to capture a special moment in time.

You can see all her art on her website HERE and be sure to follow her on facebook HERE.

Thank you, Lacee for this print, we will treasure it!
