Introducing my very first

paper doll collection!

We took a road trip a couple of months back, and 6 hours in a car requires some form of entertainment when it comes to small children.  SO, I created my very own, original paper dolls for my precious little, 3 year old girl.  That little passion project turned into creating this little collection of dolls!  What a perfect alternative to screen-time, and an amazing  toy for hours of  imaginative play! 

And what’s more, these originally designed and painted dolls are laminated with a matte finish, comes with 20+ dresses, a stand, and includes a folder (painted like a closet), so once all the dresses are cut out, there is a place to store them safely! 

What we're known for...

The most beautiful way to treasure your love story

My absolute best seller since I started my business has been custom wedding portraits–mainly for first anniversary or special anniversary gifts…and I LOVE doing them!  They are my favorite kind of project.  I love hearing my customer’s stories, and translating their beautiful memories into timeless watercolor keepsakes.

Kristin is the best! This is my second time working with her & I couldn't be happier. Her talent is unmatched & her creations are an absolute pleasure to admire. I look forward to working with her again & strongly urge you to commission a piece of art with her, you will not regret it.

I ordered a painting of our cousins and had some requests - she worked with me to get it right and did a stunning job! Not only that, everything arrived quickly and well packaged (both in terms of safety of the painting and aesthetics)! This is my second purchase from this shop and I’ve been super pleased both times! Thank you!

This is the second item I've ordered and I've loved both! The first was a gift for my brother and sister-in-law of a photo of them at their wedding and they love it. I've ordered one from my own wedding for my husband for Christmas and I can't wait to give it to him! I sent a photo with background guests and she was able to remove them and make it just us. I love it so much!

ABSOLUTLEY AMAZING! I received a portrait as a gift for my wedding and it is truly my favorite gift ever so I purchased two for friends that have recently gotten married and Kristin completely knocked them both out of the park. She is amazing at communicating, helping find the best picture, and the turnaround time for an original work of art cannot be beat. You will not be disappointed and if you are giving it as a gift, expect (happy) tears!!! Thank you again!! 🙂

Wow!! What a wonderful experience I had working with Kristin. She was easy and fun to work with!! I sent her a few pictures and she told me what would work best. She ended up combining two pictures to create a beautiful one of a kind watercolor that is sure to be a family treasure.
