Description

Custom Christmas ornament housewarming gift, new home, house portrait hand painted on a 3.5 inch ceramic round sphere. A keepsake gift for Christmas, housewarming, hostess, new home, wedding or birthday. Portrait is hand painted from your photo and personalized on the back with names and year.

Time frame to create this keepsake is about 2-3 weeks.

If this is being purchased as a gift, please make sure the correct shipping address is listed on the order. Include a gift note in the notes to seller section if one should be sent with the package.

******PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS********

(1) Attach the exact jpg image you would like painted through Etsy convos or e-mail your image to cathie.carlson917 [!at] gmail.com
I use the image sent to create the portraits but do not paint portraits of people.

(2) Include the door, shutter, and house colors.

(3) The back of the ornament is for personalized information. Please include what you would like written in the notes to seller section when purchasing your ornament. If no personalized information is included I will leave the back of the ornament blank.

(4) **Due to time constraints and the fact that the true color of glazes cannot be seen until after they have been kiln fired, I do not send proofs of my pieces. However, I do send an image of my custom gifts as soon as they have been sketched, painted and fired.**

******************************************************************************


**Please keep in mind that this ornament is not meant to portray a realistic portrait, but a simplistic rendition of your image**

****Due to the incredible amount of time and work put into each and every ornament I can not offer discounts for multiple orders. Thank you for understanding. *****

Every part of the ceramic ornament is hand touched by me making each one a unique piece of art. I sketch the custom portrait in pencil then outline the drawing with black glaze. The design is hand painted with non-toxic, lead-free pottery glaze colors and the names, addresses and dates are hand lettered. I sign my work on the back, coat the entire ornament with a non-toxic, lead-free glaze then fire it in my kiln.

Home portraits are also available on:
8 inch tile: https://www.etsy.com/listing/121404163/custom-home-portrait-personalized
8 inch plate: https://www.etsy.com/listing/127792441/custom-home-portrait-plate-personalized?ref=shop_home_active
12 inch square platter or 11.5 inch round platter: https://www.etsy.com/listing/163193926/custom-home-portrait-platter?ref=shop_home_active

Feedback:

Best etsy purchase ever. Both were gifts and both recipients were speechless. I will always order this as a new home gift for friends.

I just opened this, and burst into tears! It is so beautiful, and so perfect. I am counting down the days until Christmas to give it to my husband. THANK YOU!

"Gorgeous. It will be so great to see this ornament on the tree and remember the rooms and memories we made at our old home."
