Make a wish...

I just finished this little illustration and I am so happy with it. I hope you like it too. I think I must have been dreaming of warmer days when I did it.
I really feel like I am progressing with the illustrations I have been doing. I have been learning so much along the way and, most importantly, it has made me so happy. I think that this is the first time I have felt like I have found something that I would be happy doing forever and ever. I am seriously thinking about trying to make 'it' happen - with the first aim being to open an etsy shop.

I love the idea of etsy - people from all over the world being able to sell their handmade goods - and would love to be a part of the 'handmade revolution'. I am thinking I should just take the leap...

ps. thank you for the comments on playdough, especially all the recipes from Tanya (who writes a really interesting blog about living in Cambodia) for playdough, including yummy edible kinds (which will be perfect for Yashar!) and the recipes for fingerpaints - edible and non edible.

We are going to have so much fun with these! Check out the comments from yesterday's post for all the recipes.
