This time of year is so busy for me, and I tend to get a lot of emails in October, November, and December from people wanting portraits or ornaments by Christmas. However, I usually book up by September, so there's not a lot of availability in my schedule to serve those customers shopping later in the season, which is a bummer! I hate to turn away business because I really do think these portraits make the best Christmas gifts. But since I'm just one lonesome lady over here painting while my kids are napping, I have to be pretty strict with the work I agree to take on.
Last year I created these cute gift certificates to serve as place holders for my custom home portrait ornaments...
my custom pet portrait ornaments...
and so on. I have gift certificates available for each portrait/ornament I offer in my shop, so if you'd like a custom Christmas gift this year, please let me know by purchasing a portrait and then writing "gift certificate" in the notes to seller box during checkout. I'll email you a PDF printout of your gift certificate for easy and fast delivery.
I've just opened up 10 spots for ornament gift certificates and 10 spots for portraits in my shop (to be fulfilled in January), first come first serve.
*Aaaaaand, every order from now until Christmas gets a FREE 8x10 inch "Sarge and the Red Truck" print in the mail.
(Limit one print per customer to be mailed prior to Christmas either with your portrait order or separate depending on date of expected delivery.)
Please know that ideally I'd LOVE to serve every person who writes to me over the next few months, but simply can't squeeze it all in before Christmas. These gift certificates are my way of serving my customers without the pressure of having to work 60 hours a week (boooo).
Thank you for your understanding!
