  1. lol, i think the last movie Arielle did for Hallmark also had a ' struggling aritist ' theme !
    glad to see Arielle back in a Hallmark movie, I wish they would make her a lynchpin/face of the network !!!

  2. Good post. I absolutely love this website. Continue the good work!

  3. Is Nick Bateman new to Hallmark?

    1. Yes! This is his first leading role in a Hallmark movie! He previously starred in a movie that premiered on UP - Winter Wedding.

  4. Why is the final painting a picture of herself?

    1. I think the final picture is supposed to represent the idea that she is focused on finding her own happiness, without looking for it in a man. That was my perception of the painting, but art is always open to interpretation.

  5. I just loved this movie! It was bright and shiny and fresh and modern feeling. Arielle is such a good actress - she's natural and fun and shows emotion well. She is not over the top, boring, or phony, like many other Hallmark actors/actresses are, in my opinion.

    I watched this fun movie after trying to watch FOUR Hallmark Christmas movies...they were all duds.

    And, the next 3 Hallmark movies coming up all look a but "off" to me...so I wish I still had this one to look forward to! I also enjoyed "Flip that Romance" this spring.

    I think it's interesting that Hallmark is pumping up "Bottled with Love" as being "one of the best movies you'll see this year!" Have they ever said anything like that before? I hope they're right! :)

    1. Amy, thank you for sharing! I've had such a busy week, I haven't watched all of this movie, yet, but I've really enjoyed what I've seen so far of "A Brush with Love," and I'm looking forward to watching the rest!

      As for "Bottled with Love," I, too, thought that was interesting how they say in the commercial that this is essentially the best movie we'll see on Hallmark this year. I kinda feel bad for all the other movies to come, but then again, we know how amazing Bethany Joy Lenz and Andrew Walker are together! I know it's going to be something special, but I also hope - we have other great movies to come! I'm sure we will! :)

  6. i agree with what Net said....that was my take away too.

    she is done seeking happiness from a man's validation, but instead finding her happy, from within.

  7. This one wasn't all that I thought it would be; kinda boring.
