As part of my January Michael’s Makers post, Craft Resolutions (where I refinished my landing wall), I commissioned Marlies of Designs by Marlies to hand-draw a portrait of my family and house. I am absolutely obsessed with her style and knew her drawings would be the perfect addition to my home. Especially in my sassy Cut It Out Frames.
The process was so easy and flawless; I emailed Marlies a drawing of my family and house and in a few short days Marlies responded with a high resolution file of her hand-drawn portraits. I sent the portrait files over to my fabulous printer and in a few short hours, I had, in my hands 8X10 and 5X7 prints of the drawings. Hello?! I was blown away with Marlies’ response time and love, love, love my portraits. I don’t know how she does it, but she captured all of our personalities perfectly. Especially my little Ellason. The drawings are a major focal point in my house and visitors comment on them every visit, without fail.
And because I love you so much and want others to have a portrait of their own, Marlies has offered to giveaway a custom family portrait! Wahoo! I love her.
