lovely art for your kids


jane and doe by BlazeDanielle



Just a quick check-in...we are getting ready to leave on vacation this weekend and I must admit time has gotten away from me. Has it really been since Monday that I last posted? Yikes! So here's a little tidbit for today, a sweet artist, BlazeDanielle from Etsy, that you need to check out...
pink morning


paperboats



A dear friend wrote me and said that her nephew is engaged to this artist and she thought I'd like to check out her work. This artist aspires to one day be an illustrator for children's books. Um, hello...why is she not already doing this? Look how charming and sweet her lovely drawings and paintings are! I feel transported to another world just by looking at her artwork. Some children's book editor out there needs to take notice! The following are all from the lovely shop of BlazeDanielle.

I didn't have time to individually link each of these prints, so just be sure to check out BlazeDanielle's lovely shop. Can't you see these prints in a sweet children's bedroom?

  4. As you say, lovely art! I'm always on the hunt for great children's books and have recently discovered Bayard and their series of StoryBoxBooks, AdventureBoxBooks and DiscoveryBoxBooks (which has a special focus on teeth!) They have work by acclaimed children's books illustrator Helen Oxenbury appearing in the Storybox series for September. In addition to this, they also have some great activities for rainy days: http://www.storyboxbooks.com/potatoprinting.php, http://www.adventureboxbooks.com/macaroni-picture-frames.php, http://www.discoveryboxbooks.com/skittles.php Enjoy!
