I love the final painting. She was so easy to work with even though I had a special request. Very professional. The item was right on time and arrived in perfect condition.

I ordered a watercolor painting of our home to give my husband as a first anniversary gift. The communication I received from Krista was absolutely perfect right from the very first message. She kept me updated and involved in the process. Her response time was immediate. The product shipped timely, and when the USPS had a problem with it -- no fault of Krista's whatsoever -- Krista volunteered to do whatever she needed to do in order for me to timely receive my painting. The USPS came through in the end and I got my beautifully packaged, perfectly safe painting. It is gorgeous and my husband absolutely loves it. We can't wait to have it framed and enjoy it forever! Thank you so much! HIGHLY recommended!

My husband loved his first anniversary gift! Krista was great to work with - very detailed and communicative about the sketches and shipping. I would (and have already) highly recommend her to others looking for a keepsake house portrait.

About

Color can make my heart sing and memories keep me grounded!

I've always loved to paint, scrapbook and tackle interior design projects but moving from house to house brought about Pink Cottage Studio. I want to keep those memories alive of the homes we built, decorated and enjoyed with our children. The large brick fireplace with the hand-hewn mantel that held the stockings at Christmas, the family home with the in-ground pool and gorgeous hydrangea and the home where we lived for less than a year....all important and distinct parts of my life.

Although the paintings started as an outpouring of my memories, it has blossomed into capturing some of your memories too. I have tried to capture the essence of "home" in each of your custom paintings. I have been honored to paint homes for you, your spouse, your parents, your children, siblings, in-laws, friends, clients and some gorgeous wedding venues too.

My day consists of sketching, painting, trips to the post office, messaging with clients, packaging and office work.

I have loved chatting with so many of you... it's like enjoying long distance coffee... A blessing.

Keep dreaming of the future and remembering the past...

Thanks for peeking in on me...

Shipping
📲. Etsy app users - please see my Announcement section for my current painting schedule.

All paintings will be shipped in a weather resistant mailer with bubble wrap and rigid cardboard inserts to avoid damage. Your custom painting will be shipped, via USPS Priority Mail, for a flat $7.00 fee. Yay! (All 5 x 7" paintings that are ready to purchase, ship for a flat $6.00 fee)


1- 📦📫 Use my standard USPS Priority Mail service - usually is fine~ especially if you trust your postal carrier and your neighbors. Maybe your neighbor can grab your package for you, keep it safe while you're at work, great idea! You will be able to track your package with the tracking information I always provide. In addition, you can easily sign up for email or text alerts, on your package.( visit USPS ) 🌀 ** Plan on 3-7 days for Priority Mail service ** {{ postal delays happen more frequently during the holidays and the winter season, in general, due to weather issues and heavy volume }}

2- Have your package delivered to your work address – this is ideal for people working long days and can’t be home to grab the package as soon as it’s delivered.

3- Pay for Priority Mail Express - and have the package "held" at the post office for pick-up - *the most secure option*


I will always share the tracking number with you so you can follow your painting to its final destination.
Refunds and Exchanges
**All custom orders are final. I will share the sketch and initial watercolor painting with you, via email or Etsy conversation, before shipping.** Outstanding customer service is very important to me and I will answer any questions you have before you place your order.

I want you to be thrilled with your purchase. If the painting is damaged during shipping, please contact me immediately. ( An insurance claim must be filed quickly - pictures of the damage will be needed for a claim. )
Additional policies and FAQs

Frequently asked questions

What photo is best?

A high quality, (JPEG) preferably, nicely proportioned, front facing photo is best!

Is there a personalization fee?

No ~ I think adding an address, family name or special saying just adds more sentiment to the painting.

Can you add a pet to the painting?

Sure ~ I tell all my clients that I'm *not* a pet artist but I will do my best. I'll need a nice clear photo of your pet. (A few of my listings show your beloved furry friends...)

Are you late to the party and need it in a rush?

Sometimes life happens and we need things quicker than expected. I'm happy to offer "rush" orders when my calendar permits. (The rush order only works if my upcoming weekend is free ~ so thank you for messaging me first)

*** Your "rush" order would be completed in 7 DAYS OR LESS and USPS Express Mail IS included in this rush fee **Contiguous US states only.

I charge this fee as my studio schedule is planned each week with sketch, painting and drying times along with trips to the post office.

My rush fee is $125 and *includes* - USPS Express Mail service. {{ One day service to large metro hubs - two day service to very rural areas}}. *You may seriously consider delivery to your work address*

I heard that Pink Cottage Studio is not taking new orders~is that true???

Possibly ~~~~ Occasionally I place my shop in "vacation mode" to catch up on my painting queue. As a small business owner, I handle the orders, messages, bookkeeping, painting (FUN) and shipping myself and in an effort to concentrate on your order, I will refrain from accepting additional orders to stay on schedule.

Client/Resale/Commercial agreement ~ Important

>>Pink Cottage Studio (Client Agreement)

All portraits are the property of Pink Cottage Studio are strickly for personal use only. Resale and/or commercial use is prohibited. If you are interested in a commercial use agreement, please send me a message. Thank you.

What's the scoop on holiday ordering ?

In case you're thinking about it.... My holiday queue usually starts in late September and I usually stop taking custom orders in early November...or once my queue reaches 30 paintings. (Turnaround time is generally 2 weeks once I start your painting). My listings and announcement area will usually state the actual start date of your custom order.

As always, message me with any additional questions.
