Children love things that are made just for them – when you can include their favourite colours or some of their favourite things, they just light up! If you have a little one, Bouncing off the Walls would be a great place to start looking for that perfect custom gift.
Kristina, the Cochrane, Alberta artist behind these fabulous hand-cut and hand-painted pieces of art, started out painting wall murals back in 2004. She painted her first set of wall letters in 2006, and has since purchased a scroll saw and cuts all her own products! With the ability to start from a blank piece of wood, she creates some truly stunning custom pieces.
Bouncing off the Walls specializes in wall letters, and it’s easy to see why. The detail on these handpainted letters is incredible!
Kristina claims that her Hair Bow Holders are one-of-a-kind, and I have to agree. They are the perfect addition to any little girl’s room to keep their barrettes and clips organized and tidy! If you don’t have a daughter of your own, you might not get why this is such a good idea… so just trust me, as Mom to 2 little girls, I can vouch for this one!
My other favourite from her site? This adorable giraffe made from 4 separate painted canvasses, linked together to create a personalized growth chart. How ingenious, and certainly more creative than using a doorframe to measure your little one!
Since all of Kristina’s products are custom made-to-order, her turn around times are 6-8 weeks so we recommend that you plan ahead for that birthday or Christmas gift.
