Custom portraits are the perfect gift. I have done a few for holiday gifts this season and a couple for birthday gifts. They really are a way to show your family or friends how much you care for them. I love learning about the person that I am illustrating and what makes them unique. I like to look at a few different photos to get ideas and I love when the person requestion the portrait has special details they would love for me to include. I have always loved drawing characters in my imagination and it is even more fun to create characters from real life. Do you have a special person in mind for a custom portrait? Head over to my etsy shop to request one yourself.
This post is out of order for my alphabet food series. I should be on T but since Christmas is right around the corner and I knew I would be creating X is for Xmas Cookies I bumped it up a little. This holiday season I made a ton of xmas cookies with my sister. Growing up I made cookies with my sister. Years had passed since I had made cookies with her so this year I planed a cookie making day and we made so many it looked like a bakery in her house. I think my favorite xmas cookie is the peanut butter blossom, but I switch out the peanut butter with Cashew butter. What is your favorite cookie? Happy Holidays!
