Buying a house is one of the biggest financial decisions you can make in life and it’s particularly exciting when it’s your dream house that you’ve been building for almost two years! This story rings true since someone, who is near and dear to me, just had their birthday pass and I decided to work with Pumpkin Peanut Design to have their dream home custom drawn JUST for them! For those of you who aren't familiar with Pumpkin Peanut Design's shop, they pecializes in creating watercolor portraits, cards and other kinds of art. The majority of their work is custom portraits which make the perfect gift for almost ANY occasion. Pumpkin Peanut Design is operated by Brenda and Melissa, a mother and daughter duo who come from a long line of independent and creative women who taught that homemade is the best! And I couldn't agree more! Brenda and Melissa truly believe that making things by hand creates a unique, personal and meaningful memory.
I had the wonderful opportuntiy to work with Pumpkin Peanut Design to create the custom house potrait above and here's what I thought:
- Working with these ladies was a breeze and actually much easier to work with them than expected, mainly because it’s hard for me to articulate what I want from behind a computer screen! But these ladies clearly have TONS of experience in customizing portraits that their clients will love
- The portrait was turned around fairly quickly. From the time I provided a photo of the house to the day I recieved the digital copy it was less than a week! I loved receiving the digital copy before it was sent to me via mail because it let me provide feedback/changes before the finalized portrait was sent to me
- Shipping to Canada was super fast and the portrait was firmly packaged and came in immaculate packaging that was ready to gift
- The person I gifted this custom portrait LOVED it and will be framing it to have as a keep sake!
Other than house portraits Pumpkin Peanut Design also offers faceless family portraits such as this one which we absolutely adore!
