A few of you may have noticed my husbands art in these past posts pictures on our living room walls,


I love them. And I am really excited about sharing our new little project with you. We have a new website that we are launching today, it is called Your Architectural Portraits.com.  A place to get custom sketches of your home, or favorite place, place of worship or vacation spot, well pretty much what ever architectural image you love.

Here is an example of our first home together.
We have this up in our front room.   We have a lot of fond memories of this house,
and having this sketch is a sweet way to remember where we have been.

A few more examples:

  10. >Hey girl–come over and enter my give-a-way too.

    I would have to decide on what I would want drawn, since we aren't in our own house right now and sold our home. Our first house isn't the one our kiddos were ever in and the one that we loved the most and the big boys consider to be HOME our 2 little ones never lived in–hmmm, now you have me thinking.

    Good Luck on your adventure.

    My Dad has some pen and ink sketches in our blog its so very cheri 2–your hubs might enjoy looking at them.
