Jordan Grace Owens

I've always been a fan of unique, unsuspecting gifts. Durham, North Carolina artist, Jordan Grace Owens must have the same sentiment as she's created one of the best gift ideas I've seen in a long time...custom paper dolls.

The way it works is you email her a pic of yourself, pets, friends or family in the clothes you'd like replicated and she'll illustrate all of you into moveable paper dolls. They are about 6" tall and hand colored with marker, ink and colored pencil. Love this idea....plus, the packaging is great. 

Another brilliant creation of hers are these mid century style couple portraits...

Just send Jordan the pictures along with your pick on background colors and she will create custom drawings enclosed in a double vignette mat and vintage gold frame. This is a great idea for yourself and significant other and perhaps even better as a wedding or anniversary gift. Just email Jordan soon if you're up for it as her waiting list is now a few months long. But, if you love the idea of giving that unique, unsuspected something, it's a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Happy weekend...
