First batch

Back into the groove :-). As always, I like the variety in the drawings and ideas. I’ve seen so many drawings and I am always amazed how each drawing is as unique as the child who drew it. And I am thankful for the variety – I wouldn’t be doing this otherwise.

I am taking more liberties in my softie-making, though. There’s a debate on whether the softie should be made exactly as depicted in the child’s drawing. In my humble opinion, I believe the craft artist’s interpretation is as individual as the young person who drew the drawing. Together, two artists collaborate to create a softie, each one contributing ideas and skills. Although the drawing/design belongs to the child, the design of the softie belongs to the craft artist. This also means that there are three people who have to be happy with the end result: the young artist, the craft artist (me), and of course, the person who paid for it.

  2. These are all amazing! You are so talented at bringing these precious drawings to life! As soon as my daughter is old enough to start drawing, I will be sending some work your way!

  3. I like this because it keeps my children away from the tv and its cool when you draw its like your printing it but it comes out in shops. COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. What Great work!!!! simply AMAZING….. How much do you charge? I have 2 granddaughters, who draw all the time. This would make great B-Day presents!

    What an awesome way to encourage a child’s sense of self and nurture inspiration, creativity and fun!
