I know I haven’t posted many blog posts lately with pictures in them. Sorry, I’ve been sort-of in a thoughtful/writing mood lately, it seems. This post however is all about pictures. Pictures that is, that my niece draws for me. Evie is five and she loves lots of things, drawing being one of them. I like encouraging her to draw her own pictures, rather than those in coloring books, because I think it allows her to be more creative and use her imagination, rather than just focus on coloring inside the lines of the pictures on coloring book pages. The drawing imagination of this five-year-old girl is similar to that of most other girls her age–butterflies, rainbows, flowers, hearts and pretty things.ย  Who doesn’t like to draw those things?

Anyway, these are just a couple of the pictures that Evie has drawn for me that I happen to currently have in my dorm room. They are not for sale, although I’m sure if you inquired about commissioning the artist, she would be more than happy to come up with a lovely artwork for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

This one she did a couple years ago because it has been sitting on my dresser the whole time I've been in college. I love that she drew us both together. She also went through a phase then where she signed her name as just, EV. (I mean you get the same idea as Evie, I guess the 'ie' in her name really doesn't add much to the sound. That is pretty smart thinking for a three-year-old)
Here is a close-up of that one ๐Ÿ™‚ I do slightly look like a dog or someone with a black eye, but then again, she has a red clown nose. ๐Ÿ™‚
My diet must be working. I look pretty skinny in this one. I think I might need to start brushing my teeth a little more often though. They are looking a little crusty. But I guess when you only have three fingers on each hand, mega eyelashes and are walking among giant flowers, no one really notices your teeth. ๐Ÿ™‚
I'm really liking my dress in this one, sort-of a Marie Antoinette look. I still only have three fingers and it looks like I've put on a little weight since last time. ๐Ÿ™‚
This is the latest one she made for me this past weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. ohmygoodness!!! I have been laughing so hard! She truly is suck a little artist but she could go nowhere without your amazing commentary! I kinda like you with only 3 fingers! Such a nice even look for your hands! And those eyelashes, girl, Kelsey pays good money to look like that! I love you!
