      Comments about CUSTOM CROSS STITCH PEOPLE PORTRAIT:

      I bought this as a gift for a friend on her wedding day. I was SO excited when it arrived, I almost made plans to meet with her before the wedding so I could give it to her early. They totally loved it! I sent a picture of them to the artist and they just nailed the details so perfectly. I also loved that the artist included a sweet hand written note in the package. I'm thrilled with my purchase, it was sweet, personal and unique without being too cheesey. It also shipped earlier than expected!

          Do you know how hard it is to find a good, 2nd year, anniversary gift (Cotton) for a guy? I absolutely adore this art and she nailed it. We even have wedding rings on. Spectacular! I have already recommended this to multiple family and friends and hope this artist gets an influx of requests. You go girl!

            We saw this product and thought it would be a great gift for friends who were getting married. We sent a picture for the stitching and we were so happy with the amount of detail she included. It made the gift super personal and it won out as the best gift out of a lot of more expensive wedding gifts! :-)

            I added avaitor sunglasses as an accessory and they were put on top of the head which looks ridiculous. Plus my dog is white and you can barely see him in the picture. Since they are special order I am out $200.00. I have it hidden in a drawer since I am too embarrassed of it to show it to my husband.
            Learn to knit and do it yourself, way cheaper.

                The artist did such a wonderful job. I purchased this for my husband for our two year (cotton) anniversary. It is so unique and he loves it. I sent the artist a picture of us and I even asked if she could make me look pregnant. She was able to give me a cute, little baby bump. The details on our clothing were great too. She even wrote a personalized note congratulating us on our pregnancy. I highly recommend this product. I would buy this gift for someone else in the future.
