I asked Maria from Etsy if she would sketch a heart with Mr. & Mrs. Jesse Flohr in the center of it. It turned out beautiful! Once again, Maria did a marvelous artwork piece. This heart was for a wedding gift. Each side of the heart was hand sketched in red and made from each of their first names. Thank you, Maria! The couple loved it!!

I'm so thrilled and happy that my daughter-In-Law loved this item. This is the second heart design I had Maria sketch for me. My daughter-in-law had her third baby girl a month ago and wanted another heart attached. She now has three daughters. I had Maria make my daughter-In-Law the same heart when they had two girls. You can't go wrong when you have a great artist make what your heart desires in designs. Maria is the best artist I know. Thank you, Maria. You always come through.

About

Art in ink. Your image...Your Name...It's All about YOU!

A little background...

While our three children were growing up, I was a stay at home mom doing these PersonalizedSketches since 1985. With grown children, my hubby and I are empty-nesters. Although I am working as a dental hygienist, I have been able to keep up with the art I love to do. I'm excited about what lays ahead: meeting all of you in the world of ETSY!

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

...& I have always enjoyed many different types of arts and crafts, such as quilting, sewing, crocheting, acrylics, stained glass, and trying new things… but I especially LOVE drawing the PersonalizedSketches with ink!

I am a self-taught artist. The first personalized name drawing that I did was for my brother as a gift in 1985.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

@ the frame shop, where I went to buy a mat and frame, the employees asked if I do the drawings in any subject and any name…. and so it began.

P.ersonalized S.ketches have been sent throughout the United States and internationally. Over the years, many have become happy owners of Personalized Sketches. Thank you to all those that have given me the opportunity to create art for you!

Drawings have been done in every image imaginable and with names of the most popular to the most unique! So, YES, just let me know what you want drawn and with what name, and I'll be happy to do it. I take the name of your choice and write the name many, many times to render the design/image of your choice. On acid-free, medium weight paper with fade-proof ink, each are drawn individually.

Feel free to contact me, to add me to any of your pages and blogs!
I look forward to hearing from you.

"Each Personalized Sketches artwork is drawn for that special person, using ANY first name OR ANY last name, and can be of ANY subject matter. Example: for someone who likes to deep-sea fish, order a marlin drawn entirely with their name. These make unique gifts to welcome a new birth, graduation, birthday, wedding, promotion, farewell, appreciation… ANY occasion. Great gift for the person “who has everything”."

I am very excited for the opportunity to reach more people through my Etsy shop: PersonalizedSketches… It truly is...All about You!

You don’t need an account to pay this way either – simply use your credit card on the Paypal sign-in page (you can also pay in any currency and PayPal will do the converting for you). Payments are expected immediately upon checkout. Transactions that are not completed within 24 hours are cancelled, the item is relisted and appropriate feedback is left.

Please be advised that e-checks through Paypal DO take 3-5 business days to clear (as they would if it had been sent through the mail) and I do not start on items that have been paid for by e-check UNTIL the payment clears.
International checks may take up to 2 weeks or more. Please be aware of this.

Full payment must be made up front before any work can begin, since each drawing is all individually done with your specific name and cannot be sold to any other person. Orders immediately started upon getting all the information on a custom order and in the order that they are received.
Shipping
ITEMS SHIPPED FROM: United States
Artwork is not matted or framed and is shipped in a heavy weight shipping tube.

Please allow approximately 5-7 business days for your order to be shipped from the date of purchase & confirmation of personalized information for your drawing. This is also dependent upon the number of drawing orders, since I do them in the order that they are received.

*Actual shipping transient times are dependent on where you live.*

I ship to the address on your Etsy account unless otherwise noted, so please make sure ETSY address is correct. If you haven’t received your drawing within specified time, please let me know and I will be happy to check your order shipping status. If for some reason there is a delay in shipping, I will be sure to contact you.

Refunds and Exchanges
Q. WHAT IF MY ARTWORK IS DAMAGED IN SHIPPING?
A. The prints are rolled and covered in a tissue paper and securely shipped in a sturdy shipping tube. I have not had any drawings damaged in all the years of shipping in this manner; however, in the event it does occur, these are insured. I do ask that the damaged drawing be returned in same tube so that I can process for damages (customer pays for return shipping cost). I will then happily, draw another of the same at no additional charge.

The materials, although used to protect the drawings while in transit, are not archival-quality and thus the drawing should not be stored for a period of time in the shipping tube.

Additional policies and FAQs
Q. How much do they cost?
A. Please refer to each sample listing. your original will cost the same as the listed items according to size and number of subjects within a drawing.

Q. I WANT TO ORDER MORE THAN 1 DRAWING. AM I CHARGED THE FULL AMOUNT FOR SHIPPING EACH PIECE?
A. No, you are charged full shipping charges for the first drawing and an additional charge of $3 for each additional drawing ordered and sent in the same tube is added.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Each Personalized Sketches artwork is drawn for that special person, using ANY first name OR ANY last name, and can be of ANY subject matter.
These make unique gifts to welcome a new birth, graduation, birthday, wedding, promotion, farewell, appreciation… ANY occasion. Great gift for the person “who has everything”.

Since they are personalized, I take great care in getting all the specific information that is needed. Communication via email is essential.

All art is done with fade-proof ink and is drawn on 70lb acid-free art paper.

Sizing details

Artwork is drawn in 8x10, 11x14, or 16x20.

Images with lots of details may prohibit the drawing to be done in the 8x10 size. We will be able to discuss this once I see or know what image/subject you want drawn.
