Happy Easter!



It's Easter again and just like last year, this past weekend it was time for my friends annual Ukrainian Easter feast & egg making egg-stravaganza! This year I decided to make an all dotted egg. Can you spot mine in the photo? Look at all those beautiful eggs we made. So pretty. Then I noticed that one of the easter eggs that my bunny is holding on the Easter Card is dotted too! :)


When I was in Germany earlier on in the year there were already tons of Easter candies for sale. Here are just a few of the little cute ladybugs I just had to bring back with me. I always loved these when I was just a wee one and even these days though I now eat very little chocolate, I just can't resist them.  Happy Easter & Start to Spring everyone and Click here for our Free Downloadable Easter Colouring Cards!

Inspiration: Antique Toys

It's always great for me to go back to Germany and visit. This time I visited three separate antique toy exhibitions. There is something about great toys that is so beautiful and magical even to this day for me. I can't quite describe the feeling but in a nutshell I don't think it's changed much since when I was just a wee one. Still the same awe, the desire to own them and the cheer satisfactory feeling to look at them in all their beauty. Of course not all toys, only the most beautiful ones, which are those with the most character I find. So full of personality, they come to life.  
Of course I always bring my sketchbook and sneak my camera in on those visits. Here are a few pictures of some toys that already brought joy to kids and adults alike hundreds of years ago and a drawing of a doll in all of her fancy that I made while there. Drawing some of these toys of course  inspired me onto other projects... but then I don't think that this is specific to the subject matter. I do think it specific to the process of drawing. Draw something and it will turn into something else... and inspire you to draw more... that's the beauty of drawing. Why don't you try drawing a favorite toy sometime and see what happens? Send us a picture of it! We'd love it!
