Artimus Art: Custom Books of Your Child’s Art!

see more by

Have you ever wondered what to do with your child’s art?  Personally, I feel guilty throwing it out, so lots of time they end up in a drawer or box with the thought “someday I will do something with these…” But that day never comes! If you have found yourself in the same boat, I am thrilled to tell you about Artimus Art, a company that takes the hassle out of preserving children’s artwork.

You send them your child’s artwork and they send you back a beautiful, professionally crafted fine art coffee table book to showcase your little one’s creations.The oversized books measure 11″ x 11″ and even include customizable covers a dedication page with photo upload. And, Artimus Art is giving away one of their 30 page Red Wagon books this week, so make SURE to enter below mamas!

Wouldn’t this make a darling gift for a grandparent? And seeing that we are approaching the end of school, wouldn’t it be a great idea to do an art book for each school year?  Or how about having children in a class each contribute a piece for a special teacher’s gift?

When I first heard about this company I wondered how they would get my child’s art into a printed hard cover, case bound book, so let me tell you how it works

1. First you count the number of art pieces you have, then choose a package on their website that fits the amount of artwork you have. You can order down as you can always add pages to a book package.

The Red Wagon package is a 30 page book, the Trolley, a 50 page book, or a Dump Truck, an 80 page book.  The art collection box shipping is included in all packages.

2. Once purchased, your art collection box will be shipped the next business day and includes a return label to send in your artwork. The collection box will include an order form to add pages, extra oversized artwork, and to order extra book copies. All you have to do is take the stack of artwork and put it in the oversized bag and mail it in along with your order form. Easy peasy!

3. When it arrives, each piece is scanned, digitally enhanced, gently restored, digitized and posted to a web gallery. By the way, you will also get email updates along the way to let you they received it. They can even scan pieces with glitter, macaroni or other materials!

4. Once a customer’s artwork is posted, they are notified by email. They can then log on to their account to customize their book. You can customize the cover, color, font, do a dedication page with a photo, even title the artwork if you would like.

5. When your customizing is complete, your book will be printed and bound, and they will return your artwork along with your art collection book.

Each book package includes one book, but if extra copies are desired, you can order duplicate copies at a reduced price.  For $20.00, you can even do a unique dedication page for grandparents, aunts, friends, anyone!

In addition to preserving your child’s artwork in the hardcover book, Artimus Art now also offers a CD with high resolution files of all your child’s art images. You can turn these files in a JPEG for use in countless projects such as iron-ons, invitations, cards, etc.  You can add on a disc to any package for only $35.

And let me just reiterate about the quality, these are not your run of the mill photo books, these are fine art quality books.  Quality is the number one priority for Artimus Art, so each piece is beautifully scanned with high attention to the color enhancement so the finished project is jaw dropping. All you have to do is Google “Artimus Art” and you can read all the rave reviews for yourself.

If you have a specific favorite piece of art, you can also order a canvas print to hang on your wall.  Such a darling gift idea or fun for a sibling’s room or new baby nursery. Oh la la I just LOVE the possibilities of Artimus Art!

And ONE very lucky reader today has the opportunity to win one Red Wagon Book ($165 value!) To enter, complete as many of the Rafflecopter entry options as you would like below. The more you do, the more chances to win. GOOD LUCK!

Timree Art Studio’s Paint Parties, Cute Classes & Private Lessons

see more by

I had the pleasure of meeting artist Timree Gold of Timree Personalized Gifts and Art this summer at a Smarty networking meeting and I have to admit I was a little star struck as I have been a huge fan of her art and personalized gifts for years now!

When I met her in person it was easy to see why her work is so special and that is simply because Timree the person is special! She actually sparkles. From the twinkle in her eye to her bright smile and bubbly personality, to know Timree is to love her.  And when you look at her amazing, one-of-a-kind pieces you can see her happy personality shining through in every creation.

Timree shared with me that just this last year she opened an art studio in Newport Beach which has been coined the “cutest art studio ever!


When I visited the studio myself last week, I could see Timree’s magic sparkle dust all over it, from the moment you pull up and breathe in the ocean air to the enchanting walk up the good luck steps (you have to go to see the steps for yourself) you feel like you are entering another magical little world.  Visiting her studio is an experience.

There is much to cover about Timree it is hard to know where to start!  From her personalized platesunique gifts and school supplies to her custom murals and special live event painting, there are so many ways to experience her amazing work.

But for this post I wanted to highlight some very special offerings for OC moms and kids – most specifically –  Timree’s paint parties, cute classes and private art lessons.

Weekly Art Classes

Designed for ages 6 years and up, Timree offers weekly classes on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons from 4:00 – 5:30pm.

Starting at the beginning of the month, the weekly sessions are only $175 for 4 classes and your child will receive personalized instruction from Timree and create their own masterpiece on the provided canvas.

I think this would be such an amazing class to enroll your kids in for the Fall after school starts.

Art is so therapeutic and what a wonderful way for your kids to express and channel their creativity while while easing into the hub-bub of the busy school year.

The next session begins on September 6th, so email soon if you are interested as spots fill up quickly!

Private Lessons with TIMREE!

Timree also provides private art lessons that are only $225 for 2 hours.

During that time, Timree will sit with you one-on-one and help you or your child create a piece that holds special meaning to you.

Whether it’s a special piece of art for a bedroom wall (you can bring pictures of the decor or bedding for inspiration) or a very special one-of-a-kind piece of art for a parent or grandparent as a special gift, the goal is to embrace the fun and creativity involved in painting and walk away with a completed painting that holds personal significance.

What an amazing gift for a milestone birthday or anniversary for the person who has everything!

There is truly no better gift than one that is hand made with love and to have personalized instruction from an artist I think is incredible!

Mother / Daughter Classes

On the 2nd Sunday of each month from 2 – 4pm, mothers and daughters can attend this special class together and create their own paintings based on one of Timree’s inspired themes. Timree provides not only the canvases, tips and themed-treats – but also a special afternoon of bonding while creating.  The next class is on September 11th and the theme is “basket of apples” to celebrate back-to-school time.  Only a few spots left so sign up ASAP if you are interested! Cost is only $65/pp.

Paint Parties!

How many times have you have looked for an original venue in Orange County to host your child’s birthday party because you are tired of the same ‘ole same ‘ole?  I know I have! Now you can book your party in the cutest art studio ever and give your guests a magically creative experience.

The parties are designed to be intimate in size for 4 to 14 guests ages 6 + and include:

– 2 hours of party studio time on weekdays after school or on Sundays
– Birthday girl (or boy!) picks the theme for the painting
– Friends all paint the same picture but can get creative with their colors
– $50 per guest / $300 minimum
– BYOT (bring your own treats!)

You can also gather a group of friends for a mom’s night out!  Inquire for more details.

“Timree jeans”

For all Timree’s paint parties and classes she encourages the girls to wear special “Timree jeans” which are fun painting jeans, jean shorts or jean skirts that can get deliciously splashed with creativity.

She told me the girls love wearing their “Timree jeans” and she will personally sign the back.

This art studio is truly one of a kind. As is Timree.  She reminds me of a Disney Princess in the most flattering of ways. I guarantee your girls will be completely enchanted by her and her studio.

For more information or to sign up for private lessons, classes or parties,  contact Timree at timree {at} timree.com.
