Southern Savers Etsy Giveaway Bash

Day three of our Etsy giveaways is with the wonderful Days of Gold Design Shop by Jenna.  She creates handmade portraits that are customized to portray each individual’s personality as well as capture the quality of love for one another within the entire family.


Jenna says that she started Days of Gold Design Shop as a personal creative outlet.  She’s been creating drawings as gifts for family and friends for a few years now, but it wasn’t until recent that she decided to open an Etsy shop. Being a stay at home mom is all she’s ever dreamed of and she’s thankful I get to be at home with her children, but she started to feel as though she needed something to do for herself during nap times and after their bedtime.  Since opening the shop, she finds that the time she spends doing something creative positively affects her mood and energy when with her children.


I love the personality in Jenna’s portraits!  She asked for a family portrait of us and any pets.  Rather than rounding up all of our chickens and cats, we decided our dog Major would represent all of our animals.  I sent in our picture and she did the rest.

These would make great Christmas gifts for grandparents or even to snap a shot of a friend or family member’s clan and send that in to have a portrait made.  Jenna even makes pregnancy announcements.  What a neat way to capture the moment of a pregnancy.

Here’s the picture we sent in and what Jenna made for us.  I love the result!  I think it captures the personality of our family.  Now I need to frame it and hang it on the wall.
