2018 UPDATE: If you are visiting from my linktree, welcome! All of the info in the Q&A below is the same for this year except dates. I just didn’t want to make an entirely new post for this year since it will be a smaller run. Please feel free to email, comment on this post, or comment on the instagram post if you have any questions, thanks! Additionally, if you signed up for my Mailchimp list to be notified when they go on sale again, I am so sorry that I wasn’t able to email. Mailchimp deactivated my account and I have been going back and forth with them all week to get access to this list again.
2014 UPDATE: Unfortunately they are all sold out for this year due to the popularity generated by the Buzzfeed article. I am so overwhelmed and grateful for the support. Thank you, everyone! It's something that I do annually every holiday season so if you are interested in being notified next year when sales begin I have set up a mailing list that you can sign up for right here. You won't receive any additional mail or junk, just one email next year when sales begin.
I'm excited to be bringing Home for the Holidays back for the third year! Every year I love hearing the stories of time spent at summer cabins, old homes that have been sold, new homes that have been bought, first apartments, and the many other reasons that the buildings I am illustrating are special.
For those new to Home for the Holidays, it is my custom illustration project offering the opportunity to give some affordable, personalized art for the holidays. I love drawing buildings and would love to illustrate one that is meaningful to you or someone you know. Whether it be a home, a summer cottage, winter cabin, historical landmark, travel destination, garden shed, or whatever other structure your heart desires. Submit a photo and you will have an 10x12 or 10x10 illustration on your doorstep by Christmas!
This year there are
30 spaces available SOLD OUT. Here are the details:
What do I get?
You will receive a 10"x10" or 10"x12" (illustrations measure 8"x8" or 8"x10" with a 1" border) print that has been reproduced digitally on archival quality watercolour paper.
Where do I email my photo to?
Please email your photo(s) to seguin.marisa[at]gmail.com with "Home for the Holidays" as the subject. Multiple angles are welcome.
What buildings will you draw?
House, condo, cabin, cottage, castle, Versailles.....as long as it has some semblance of a dwelling (i.e. I will not draw the Great Wall of China, Eiffel Tower, etc) then I would like to illustrate it for you!
When will I get my print?
I will be sending them out as I finish in the order that they are received. International orders will be mailed no later than Friday December 5. US orders will be mailed no later than Friday December 12. If you need your print sooner than this please include a note in your email. I will do whatever possible to accommodate requests for prints to be mailed by a certain date but make no guarantees that they will be mailed earlier than the previously specified dates.
Can I see my illustration before you ship it?
Unfortunately not. The elimination of the usual back and forth makes it possible for me to offer these at a flat rate.
Can I request certain colours?
Unfortunately not. Again, for the same reason as above, the elimination of the usual back and forth allows me to offer these illustrations at a flat rate.
Can you ship it to someone else for me?
Yes I can! I'll even include a note if you'd like.
How much does it cost?
$100 + shipping. Shipping costs can be found in the shop.
Do you offer refunds?
Once you have sent me your photo your sale will be considered final.
When is the last day to place an order?
Please note these dates have changed for 2018. The current dates can be found on the etsy listing. I will be taking international orders until Sunday November 23 and US orders until Sunday November 30.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions! You can place orders through my shop right here.
