Lemon in a box

The rules of the game are simple, but the fun isn’t!

Hanging out with a 10-month-old sometimes means making up “games” such as…

… to get a couple of minutes to clean up the house. Or have a sip of coffee 😁

Yesterday my little one was entertained for at least 5 minutes by a plastic container and a lemon.

It felt like such a ✨ parent win✨ that I had to dwell on it for a bit (after she went to bed) and draw this imaginary game box design.

It took me about an hour of drawing on my phone in ibisXPaint while watching the Olympics.

I made a thing #1

For Christmas 2019, I made a lot of small homemade gifts for my fam. I had so much fun and only got a tiny bit stressed trying to finish all of them in time πŸ˜†

Since I’m still trying to relax and get over my cold, I thought I’d draw some of the gifts I made and tell you how I made them. The holidays are over, but they’re not specifically Christmassy things, so maybe they can inspire someone to DIY something πŸ™‚

Bears Vs Turtles

For my nephew I made a tic tac toe game, but it’s a bit unusual:

I got the idea to make a game when I found a pack of three extremely cute polar bear figurines in the craft store.

It took me a while (and some creative inspo from Pinterest) before I decided to make a small unique version of tic tac toe.

I then found the three small clay turtles in my local Fair Trade shop.

The last step was to paint the simple gold pattern with a porcelain pen on a blue tile.

Weird gift from Auntie done!
