Here are some Personalized Sketches ordered by customers for their loved ones...

This first one was given as a gift from a sister to her sister for her wedding day, taken from a photo of the future bride and groom.



This one was ordered by a mom for her daughter and her daughter's son for her first mother's day.



This one was a gift from a husband to his wife for an anniversary gift.  I loved the thought and creativity, he took in the idea for this one. He wanted to do the "daisy, like you pull petals for the He loves me, he loves me not"...  but he wanted to incorporate some significant places and dates along with their names.

So, I suggested each of the petals drawn with the specific place or date...then the petals would represent "He loves me...he loves me...he loves me...he loves me...he loves me...". And the one leaf in his name, the other leaf in her name, the stem and main center in their last name.

Marie, was happy to see you dropped by. I have had so many things going on, I have not made comments as much. I am going to do better. There has never been a doubt about the love in your family. It comes through loud and clear. Trust that young lady realizes how lucky she is getting your Handsome. That grand baby is so precious. They are the best. You are still putting out great work. I really liked these you shared.

I am so incredibly happy for you and your growing family, my friend! I've been away from blogging for several months and it brings me great joy to come back and read such happy news about your family! You are so blessed to have so many great events this year, with the new grandchild, new son-in-law and a soon to be new daughter-in-law. Many congratulations to you and your family on all these happy events :)
