Last week I posted about our house hunting journey and the neighborhoods in Atlanta complete with a custom map from Natty Michelle Paperie. (It’s so cute, right?) Natalie is a talented artist, so I wanted to show you more of her work. Take a look at Natalie’s site & Etsy shop, too!
Natalie paints the loveliest maps for weddings, anniversaries and special occasions. The traditional first anniversary gift is something paper. I think a custom map of where you first met (or first kissed!) would make a sweet first anniversary gift. (Ladies, forward this!) I loved this custom NYC map that Natalie painted for a couple celebrating their first anniversary. The boyfriend wanted to commemorate their first date, complete with all the places they went, complete with a little yellow taxi, of course.
Natalie also paints custom maps of your favorite places in a special city or town, or to illustrate a move. How cute is that custom We’ve Moved map! Speaking of, I need to do one of those. (Mental note!)
A Timeline illustration is another neat idea, perfect for an anniversary gift or even as a save the date. I love Natalie’s handwriting and style!
And besides maps, Natalie also does house portraits, thank you notes, and all kinds of “whimsies” like rubber stamps, iPhone cases, pins and magnets. Um, gnome magnet? Yes, please! See all the whimsies here.
