Custom Maps for Christmas!

Custom vacation maps are on sale for a limited time between now & that one shopping weekend we all know & lose sleep over, November 25th! The deadline to order & guarantee your map by Christmas Eve is approaching, so if this is something you might want to gift to someone, send me a message through my Etsy shop here. These have made super fun honeymoon gifts, 1 year anniversary gifts, & family gifts for vacation traditions (to name a few).

The details on how to order are in the description of the item, but the basic low-down is to provide me 5-10 favorite memories of your vacation you wish to be illustrated with short & sweet descriptions of each (for the legend, if you wish to have one), the title you wish the map to have, & photos of the places you wish to be illustrated. I provide 1 proof in sketch form, & show you the final version in color for a last look-through before shipping your way!

The deadline to guarantee your map by Christmas Eve is November 25th.

To use the code, enter, "MAP30" at checkout.

I'm just imagining 2 little kitties trying to chase those red puffs all while you're trying to man the camera, haha. I hope you got a couple pics of them during this :) -- Btw, everyone... this gal is crazy talented & this gift would be so special for someone to receive. Order & you won't be sorry :)
