Laura, a client, sent me a link to her blog post featuring one of my art pieces. It's beautifully written and full of emotion, please read the post-
To sum it up- Her husband secretly messaged me to create a one of a kind gift for their fifth anniversary. The traditional fifth anniversary gift is wood. Laura and Nicholas had previously purchased items from me and Nicholas knew that a majority of my work is on wood. He wanted a list of GPS coordinates of meaningful places burned into a piece of wood. Even though it may look like a bunch of numbers and some secret code on a chunk of wood, each of those coordinates represent a cherished memory.
I've been a little discouraged with some things lately and getting such a sweet message from a satisfied customer is exactly what I needed. This is why I will continue to do custom orders. It allows me to create one of kind pieces that will be part of others lives for many years to come. I love that I was able to contribute to a very special fifth anniversary. Laura is now able to reminisce everyday when she sees these coordinates.
