Well, look at that.

I glanced over at Facebook yesterday to find a nice little surprise waiting for me on my newsfeed: A picture of my house portraits on a spread from City Paper. My illustrations were featured in their 2013 Holiday Gift Guide in the Arty Holidays section! (One of the few full color spreads, no less!)

I've been planning a post on my House Portrait Gift Certificate Packages and I'm thinking now would be a good time. To those of you new to my work, I create custom illustrated house portraits (among other things!). If you'd like to see plenty of examples of my portraits, click through my portfolio. The portraits are quite popular and have been on a wait list for a while now. If you are interested in a house portrait, there are two ways to go about getting one...

The first option is to purchase a gift certificate package. The house portrait wait list is full through the end of 2013, but if you are hoping to have a gift in hand this holiday season, you may want to consider a gift certificate package. I have made a limited number available, so be sure to order before they run out. These lovely packages make really thoughtful gifts and can be redeemed by the recipient any time after January 1st, 2014. They are beautifully printed at the same quality, on the same paper as final portraits, and come with three examples to give the recipient an idea of the final product. They are quite nice, I think. :)

Another option is to add your name to the wait list, which runs into 2014. Here's how it works: To add your name, email me at miranda@houseloveshop.com. Include your name, contact email and what size print or package you would like to order. I currently offer 8”x10” ($125) and 11”x14” ($150) house portraits. I also offer greeting card packages. These packages include a printable pdf of your illustration to fit your specifications as well as an 8”x10” or 11”x14” print of your illustration. The 8”x10” greeting card package costs $145 and the 11”x14” package is $175. I will contact you when you are next on the list with a link to your reserved listing. Once you purchase that listing, we will move forward to complete your house portrait!

Please feel free to get in touch with me at miranda@houseloveshop.com if you have any questions. Thanks again for all your support! Now, I better get back to work. :)
