Today's post goes out to the awesome and oh-so-talented Lauren from tastes like love.
A couple of months ago I contacted Lauren to commission a picture of my twin sis and her partner for a surprise baby shower gift. Given that I only gave Lauren a couple of weeks lead time I was not surprised (nor disappointed) that it was not ready in time for the shower. I'm glad we didn't rush through the process and what has resulted is a very accurate and detailed interpretation of Ness and Brad. Lauren was so attentive and patient and was happy to make changes (however little) to satisfy me and I couldn't be more pleased.
Mila (my gorgeous new niece) is now two weeks old. I was both excited and nervous to hear Ness and Brad's reaction to the gift after my dad delivered it to Brisbane. I didn't need to be worried - Ness instagrammed the pic not long after receiving it with the comment 'awesome gift, thx @peta_ballerina.
I'd recommend you consider getting Lauren to create a picture of you or your loved ones. The effort that goes in to creating the picture far outweighs the cost, and what a unique and personalised (and some would say quriky) gift it is.
(she is doing one of the husband and I at the moment!)
