Walker the Whale

My first attempt at a sea creature, and very fitting, because that is the name of my little boys class at school, the "Sea Creatures".
His name is Walker the Whale, and I think he's just darling!

Have a great rest of the week everyone!

A Supersized Hot Air Balloon Mobile!

I tried my hand at making a supersized Hot Air Balloon Mobile, with one big balloon hanging from the middle, and smaller versions of the big one all around!

Gorgeous crochet flower detail on the cloud with star buttons!

 Some more crochet flowers on the big Hot Air Balloon's basket!

Till next time!

How lucky can the BOO!beloobies be?

Being lucky is a wonderful thing, and I've been really lucky with the publishing of some of my toys.  Thanks to some lovely people at Baba en Kleuter Magazine, I was featured in 2 consecutive months, February and March 2014!

Have a great week everyone!

Monkey-ing around!

I just adore little Manic the Monkey, and decided to start using him in some drawings.

He reminds me of a knitted blue monkey I had as a little girl.  This little Monkey had unbelievably long arms and legs, specifically knitted like that by my Mom so that I could carry the little critter on my back by means of curling it's arms around my neck, and knotting it's legs around my waist.

I miss that Monkey, I'm 36 years old, and I miss him.  I have such fond memories....and unfortunately in the course of my lifetime he went missing.

So I decided it's time to make my own version, and he will be coming out in many versions of himself....he will be illustrated, and hopefully my little blue monkey will live on in Manic's adventures!

Untill next time then!

I've been bitten by the Illustration bug!

Yes, I've been bitten, and I hope to keep this going all year long.

I've finally found my voice, and my own unique way of takes time and patience for it to develop...but when you finally can see it for yourself, you just want to keep I will!

Will be doing colour versions of all my illustrations shortly, and will be sharing it!  I will also be looking into doing art prints of the respective watercolour originals, so I'll post details of that soon!
