I was fortunate to come upon the blog Doodles By Lauren. Lauren is a young woman who blogs about her busy life as wife and mother of three small children, her posts reveal how devoted she is to her family and to maintaining a beautiful home.
Lauren is also an artist and she creates wonderful one-of-a-kind pieces of children's artwork. Lauren and I communicated through emails for her to create a custom painting for our granddaughter Mia. Mia loves Tinkerbell and she also loves ducks along with ladybugs. I asked Lauren to paint a picture for Mia of Tinkerbell but with Mia's hair and eye color and to include a duck and a ladybug. Lauren emailed me with all her ideas and when I gave her the 'okay' she went right to work, and she very quickly produced this amazing piece of artwork.
I was thrilled!
But more important ~ so was Mia!
Of course the first thing Mia noticed was the duck!
"Grandma, can I play with that duck?"
Mia then wanted to show her ducks the ducky in the painting.
Then Mia notices 'Tinkerbell'.
'Grandma, can I play with her?"
"Can I play with this wand, Grandma?"
"Grandma, can I take her home?"
Great job, Lauren! Thank you!
