"So you were able to capture my Beautiful baby Daisy in every aspect on my piece you made. I could not be any happier and I just continue to look at it in awe. You are an amazing artist and look forward to the next peice you make for me. I will be honest and tell you I searched pyrography and I have yet to find a piece anywhere that is any better than yours. All of your work is magnificent and you are a master at what you do! THANK YOU SO MUCH!"

"Phoenix Pyrocreations Pyrography...even if you used the old iron...it is a beautiful piece and I personally think the touches of color really make it pop! My husband loved it and said it was by far his favorite gift!"  

Merry Christmas and a Happy Birthday to Mr. Carter!

Hi Laurisa,

I gave my grandpa the loon piece a week ago, and he absolutely loved it. When I opened it for the first time I was so impressed, it looked perfect! When my grandpa unwrapped it everyone in my family asked where I had gotten it and wanted one too. I'll definitely spread the word to people and let them know how good of work you do. Thank you again and God Bless you :)

Dear Laurisa,
  I want to give a special thanks to you for the beautiful piece of art that is now hanging on my wall! Who knew my own poetry would be woodburned by such an inspiring artist as yourself? I love everything about this piece. Not only does your artwork capture the meaning of the words, but it also sets a mood that the words can't set themselves. The hue of the cherry wood really adds to the meaning of the poem as well. You did everything I asked of you, helped with the design, and did the work quickly, but neatly, and I appreciate every bit of that! I will treasure it for as long as I live, and it may even become one of those pass-it-on-down family heirlooms. My hope is that your talents become noticed by more and more people, because your talents are definitely not something to be overlooked! Thank you once again. With love, your friend always, Amber Harlan.
