Saw It On Social: A Cute Little Sketch

Aug 6, 2019

When Kyle and I were planning the wedding, I knew I wanted a brunch reception.  So for our cocktail hour, instead of serving tequila shots and mini-tacos (save those for the rehearsal dinner), we’re having donut holes and coffee.  And ever since I saw this adorable snap on Instagram, my social feeds were flooded with ads for personalized wedding stamps.

I found Lise and her shop, @lilimandrill, on Etsy and was completely taken with her adorable designs.  She sketches bridal couples, whole families, pets, etc. for use on stamps, coffee mugs, or temporary tattoos.  Or she’ll draw up a portrait sketch for you to use in any way you like for just $40.

I’ve purchased a lot of wedding items through Etsy, and I have never had a better shopping experience.  I sent in my request, with our photos, and had a response same day.  Lise sent a draft sketch the next day, and the final version two days later.  My stamp was dropped in the mail just 24-hours after that.  Amazing customer service, and very responsive.

My biggest concern when I sent Lise our photos was that the sketch wouldn’t look like us.  So I was thrilled to pieces when I opened her e-mail and saw a perfectly charming drawing of Kyle and I staring back at me.

While we’re using our stamp to personalize items for our wedding, these little sketches and stamps would make a charming gift for many occasions.

You could add an image of your family, kids, or pets to your holiday cards, birthday invites, or graduation announcements.  A teacher friend is ordering this one with an encouraging message like “Great Job!.”  From a new baby to a new pet, the sky is the limit on how you can use this fun little stamp.

{this post contains links that may generate commission for the author; But as with all Saw It On Social posts, I paid for my stamp from @lilimandrill with my own money, no gifts or cash has changed hands for my writing of this post.  She doesn’t even know I’m promoting her business. I just had such a great experience that I wanted to share.}

    This is adorable! I would love a roundup of some of the favorite items you found for your wedding. Maybe post-wedding so it contains the perspective of the things you ultimately were super glad that you purchased?

    • AttiredAttorney says:

      Yes, this would be extremely useful! There are plenty of places with reviews of big ticket items (photographers, venues, etc), but not a lot of places I trust to review these types of little but impactful items for a wedding.

    • Devon says:

      Yes! I would love to see a post of your wedding must haves – especially the smaller items like this adorable stamp.

    Wow, I had Lise do a stamp for me that I gave as a wedding gift nine years ago now. I also had a great experience. I’m glad her shop is still going strong. Thanks for reminding me of her!
