A New Cast of Characters

 I'm working on a new mini egg portrait series that I'm going to put up on Etsy along with listings for custom orders.  I'm planning to list some of my small drawings as well.  My goal is to launch my shop by the end of this week, so stay tuned!

 With two months left to go, I'm in the home stretch of my pregnancy (holy crippling exhaustion, Batman!) so it's the perfect time for me to be making small, more immediately gratifying things.  I have a hard time pulling myself away from my work table when I'm in the process of working through a problem.  And since making little things inherently requires less problem-solving than making big things, I can pull myself away more easily in order to give myself little rests throughout the day.

Blessings on your pregnancy!

Those little birds should fly out the door, they are so cute. What a great idea!

Like em! Happy hatching on both counts!

These look a bit older than some of the characters on past eggs I've seen. Maybe it's the clothes.

Idea: maybe paint a "bird" mobile for the baby? That would be a tiny project and I'm sure you can find a way to create prints out of them to sell. Can't wait for the shop to open!
