evening trip to the toyshop

I have been practicing my 2d work. Was quite pleased with how this one turned out.  I think I still have a long way to go on it though.

The dinosaur kiddies have been on an evening trip to the toyshop. They bought dinosaur toys of course!

I still find working in 2d quite difficult and it takes me longer to do a 2d piece than it does to do a 3d piece but I am going to keep practicing!

The only thing though is that often when I look at my 2d picture I just think- this would have looked better and more exciting in 3d. I think I am a 3d girl at heart but shh!

This week Hnery's dad stopped in on his way home from Europe. He brought us Belgian Easter eggs from Buges! We couldn't help opening them early. They just looked so good all wrapped up in a white box with a yellow ribbon. Celestine was especially pleased because inside the big chocolate Easter egg there were lots of mini Easter eggs perfect size for her. Well, almost perfect size- if perfect size is almost half your height! 

Also my friend Carol from Belgium sent Celestine a tiny necklace she had made herself. Celestine is very pleased with it and has been wearing it ever since. It makes her feel bohemian because of the feather. I think Celestine rather fancies herself a bohemian/one with nature kind of summer. She wants to dance round campfires with flowers in her hair and swim in wild lagoons. She has even made me buy a book for her about wild swimming- all the best places to swim in wild and secret places round England and she is insisting I make her a tent. So that is on the agenda.

I don't blame Celestine, I am hoping for a similar sort of summer myself! A tiny tent sounds very cute too. I've been wanting to make some kind of indoor tipi or tent, but not as small as Celestine's. I like the drawing, the children look really excited!

Oh, I think half your height is the PERFECT size for chocolate. Definitely. And I love your 2d piece. Your dinosaurs are adorable.
