Doddles, Dears and Weekend Links

Sketching | merrilee

I’ve been working a lot of fun illustration projects lately so if the blog seems quiet that’s why! I can’t wait to share so many of them with you but in the mean time, here’s a peek and some fun sketching I’ve been doing for a project in the works. Like did you see this fun Hanna Anderson shoot from Brittany? That sweet little dear just came out of my paint brush and ran straight to her to give her nose a little smooch.

It’s also raining today. Which equals perfect craft afternoon weather! so I think I’ll be making a few of these with the little Miss. I can’t hide that I’m only a little bit crazy about having a girl who will go nuts for these. She’s super into pink too (I’ll have to help her learn the value of all colors on the spectrum but for not it’s pretty cute and my girly side is cool with it).

Oh and did you see we had a winner for our Macaroni Challenge? It was so fun seeing all that you came up with. The entries were so great. Like this insane pasta noodle crown. Are you kidding me!?

If you’re feeling crafty I might also suggest stamping up a storm with either flowers, geometric shapes or make and array of funny faces!

Happy crafty weekend friends!
