SLEEPYTIME ANGEL SKETCH



Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all getting your creative time in somewhere this weekend! I know its a terribly busy time of year for all of us!

I was sketching in my jammies this morning, one of my favorite activities, and was inspired by a little angel on my shelf. I still have a ceramic light switch cover from my room when I was a baby. It is one of my most cherished items. It has a little praying angel in the clouds with a gold halo and has become my own little guardian angel over the years and is a special keepsake from the house where I grew up in Massachusetts.

I drew my new little "Sleepytime Angel" and will be inking her today as a new digital stamp design!

Do you guys still have anything special keepsakes from your childhood ? Dolls? blankets? toys? I'd love to hear all about them!:)

She is such a cutie! I still have the hand embroidered baby blanket my great grandmother made for me, a pink teddy bear given to me when I was born plus numerous antiques that were from my family. Nothing worth much except to me and my memories... that's what's important though! :)

Wow Michelle. I wish I could just and draw like you.
I still have my childhood bear. I got it for my first birthday and it was a lot bigger than me. It is a big pink bear that I tried to carry him (I know HIM and it's pink!)around but kept falling over. His name is 'Big Ted' of course.

I love it. How sweet it would be to make something for the kids room with it.

I don't really have a lot of things from when I was little, but I do keep some of the special things for my kids. I have blessing clothes, stuffed animals, etc...
