If you follow the LilliBean Designs Facebook page you may have seen the three very special commissions that I have been asked to do for Christmas.
It's a tight dead line, but I know that the commissionees (Is that even a word??) won't quibble over design, price or colours.
I know this because the people who have asked for these very special commissions are my daughters.
Well not Beastie as the most she speaks at the moment is a squeak or too, but when I asked Bean + Bug what they wanted for Christmas, after the few key items they wanted (like a tiger lily dress up), they both asked for one of my paintings.
When I asked them what they wanted me to paint, Bean asked for a mermaid (of course she did - this kid was born a mermaid!) Bug wanted a princess + they both decided Beastie would like a fairy.
I think all the girly bases at covered!
So this week I am sharing the finished painting for Beastie. A dark fairy for my dark horse!
I know Beastie won't really appreciate it yet, I love the idea of painting/ making them something every year for Christmas. Even though, in the past, the quality of the hand made gift hasn't always stood up to the vigorous play of toddlers, just the fact that they remember that mama made that is awesome + I hope they will pass this on to their families.
Have you started a Christmas tradition, that you would love to see continued? I would love to hear more about it!
