I am finally an auntie! My bigger sister* had her baby boy on the third of December (my birthday!!!) I have seen pictures and he is definitely a cutie 🙂 Now I get the best of both worlds – I have a little girl and can buy clothes for her, and now I have a little nephew for whom I can buy all the adorable little boy clothes 🙂 Little sweaters, and vests, here we come!
I had wanted to paint her some pictures for the nursery; her set has been one of the projects I’ve had on the go for quite some time. Remember the snail I had up the the blog? That was the first of a set of five I painted. For the longest time I was waiting on canvases – no one had the size I had started the snail with, and I couldn’t imagine any other size working out. Nor did I want to repaint my snail. When desperate times called for desperate measures, I had to choose a different size after all. To my delight, I think the set really worked out beautifully despite my reservations.
I think animals are so cute for little kids rooms. This was a fun, albeit stressful (because of not being able to find canvases) set to paint. I hope you like them!

*I use bigger sister since Petra-Ann lived with my family as a student for a couple of years and she became one of our family. I was in high-school at the time and my room and hers were both downstairs. I had lots of late night chats with her; she was a great “older sister” role model for me during those years. I love you Petra-Ann!
