Ukrainian Girl Matryoshka

Ukrainian Girl Matryoshka

Say hello to my Ukrainian Girl Matryoshka! I hope you like her! She is making me yearn for spring, with her colorful flowers and maypole like ribbons! I have been drawing her on and off for a couple of weeks now. She took me a little longer than usual because I have been so busy revamping my shop and educating myself on running my business, that I have had little time to draw. Etsy had a really terrific Etsy Success Symposium day last week, with some wonderful speakers. I learned a lot and am implementing. There are videos posted of some of the Symposium in case you missed it and are an interested Etsy shop owner. My favorite part of it was April Bowles- "Achieving Your Creative Goals"(the second video at the link, the first one isn't working). April's website is Blacksburg Belle.

My Ukrainian Girl Matryoshka was suggested by someone who contacted me through my Etsy shop. I am working exclusively from my list of suggestions now. Please keep the suggestions coming! :)

Gorgeous! I love the head piece on her and the details on her dress and sleeves - Love, love this. She is making me yearn for spring too... but more for her dress!

Thanks also for sharing the Etsy links, I'll have to check them out.
