I was imbibing too much one night in November, trying to figure out wtf to get Hillary for Christmas. The woman gets herself her favorite things and has impeccable taste. So I started perusing Etsy (it's a normal pastime in the Burke household) and stumbled across the Paper Woodland.
Maybe it was the Thelwell-style pony carrying a banner or that the whimsical nature of her art complimented whatever it was I was drinking, but I was immediately smitten and ordered a portrait of Annie.
I gave my hubs a list of options for Christmas gifts and my own portrait was on that list, but didn't make the cut. So when Big G's mom gave me a gift card to Etsy, I ordered watercolors of both Archie and Ox. I absolutely loved the art and immediately purchased the digital copies. I foresee some fucking memorabilia in my future.
She also included stickers (maybe she gives freebies of her beta-tests, too?), which I've hung up at work and can't bare to permanently part with.
I was able to request that Archie get his little star added before the final was sent. The only issue I would say is that price seems to fluctuate, maybe seasonally. The portrait I ordered of Annie went up in price closer to Christmas. I haven't been watching long enough, but I plan on ordering more portraits of other horses throughout the year.
|Before, minus the star.|
