Unique Housewarming Gifts

Wow! I can’t believe we’ve been in #homesweetessex for over a month now. We’ve had a whirlwind of the last month and half with our move, several of our family members moving, and starting our renovations. For our first wedding anniversary my sister had a drawing of our first home done for our “paper” anniversary. We both loved the gift and I really wanted one done of our second home! So I’m sharing a unqiue housewarming idea with ya’ll today as I absolutely love gift giving.

I teamed up with kr original art on this post today and can’t wait to share her amazing talent with you. I first found Katie earlier this year when I was looking for a unique gift for my sister’s 30th. I had her draw a portrait of my sister, husband and their two dogs. How cool is that? I’m all for a unique, thoughtful gift and so is my sister! Katie achieved exactly what I was going for and I knew I would be hiring her again. 

Not only does Katie do portraits but she also does drawings of homes, wedding venues, churches etc to have a sketch of a memorable place. Not only did I have Katie do a drawing of the #hickoryhouse but I also had her do one of my in laws home that they were leaving after 18 years! I’m beyond pleased with both of them and love having the sketches of our first two home in our current one. It’s also such a conversation starter when we have guests over to show them these as they are sitting out in our kitchen area on my console table.
