This is just an idea that I'm playing around with to perhaps make some pendants out of. I've got so many ideas buzzing around my head at the moment but my 3 year old has been very very sick this week so we're all functioning on hardly any sleep at the moment and when I try to draw it's really very bad, ah well he's hopefully on the mend now so I'll be able to jot all these designs down. I would like to experiment a bit more with drawing animals and work on some of my own ideas for a childrens book. So many ideas such little time in the day....... I guess it's better than having 'artists block' as I had that recently and it wasn't much fun. Sorry I'm rambling now....I think I need an early night ;0)
