I, Rachel, have a problem. I am a sentimentalist with an obsession for record keeping and memory preserving. Usually it's journaling, or scrapbooking, but lately it's been drawing. It all started a couple of years ago when I decided to draw maps of the places we visited when we traveled to London and Paris, which I originally drew for my mom's birthday, but also gave to my sister and cousin. Then I drew an illustrated cookbook of our family favorite recipes and the stories behind them for the entire family for Christmas. I also eventually want to have a gallery wall of places I've been or lived. The problem is that I can only draw so many things for myself and family before my sister is going to open my next birthday present to her and say, "Oh great, another drawing. Gee thanks."
But I can't help myself! I love to draw things that have meaning. I cheer when I figure out the perfect whimsical touch to add to make the illustration personal, like an inside joke. So save my sister from another drawn present. Let me help you preserve a memory!
I opened up a gift shop extension of Citrus and Mint in a separate store on Etsy (see it HERE). This personal use store focuses on custom illustrations and personalization. I will be adding many products, but the core listing is where you can get a custom illustration of your favorite place. It can be where you got married, where the proposal took place, your favorite hangout, where you met, your first house, your current house, your childhood home, your childhood hangout, etc. It doesn't have to be romantic. Fuel my obsession and get something cute out of it!
I will also be adding lots of LDS temples because I am LDS and I have lots of friends who were married in temples. These are perfect for baptism, young womens, primary, wedding, anniversary, or birthday gifts. I started with the Salt Lake temple because it seems to be the most popular, and the Sacramento temple because it is where I got married. I'll probably do the Newport Beach temple next or the Washington D.C. one, but I can be swayed :).
P.S. I will still be adding things to the CU shop, I just separated them to avoid confusion. Everything in the new shop is for personal use only.
