Pierrot, Jack in the Box toy craft printable

Pierrot, Jack in the Box toy craft printable

Hello! I've made a new Jack in the Box printable, a sweet Pierrot! Another fun, toy craft printable file. As usual I designed it to be made with a color printer, some heavy weight paper, a pair of scissors and a glue stick. It's now available in my shop! The convenience of purchasing a printable file is you can print as many, and as often, as you want. I hope you enjoy it. :)

Peace,

Amy

Croatian Slavonija Matryoshka


Croatian Slavonija Matryoshka
Hello! This is my new drawing inspired by the people and folk dress from the Slavonija region of Croatia. She is now available in my shop as prints and a coloring sheet printable file. Also, merchandise with her adorning it can be found in my zazzle shop. She is my fourth Croatian drawing! Another of the many requests I've received. When I receive a request I add it to my suggestions list that I work from in the order I receive them. So far I've drawn over one hundred twenty cultural drawings and over thirty requests are waiting on my suggestions list. My suggestions list can be seen in the right hand column of my blog. I update it with new suggestions periodically and work from it from the top down. You can follow my progress by looking there and I always post my new drawings on this blog and around my social media accounts. I hope you like her! She was so detailed with lace, tassels, etc. It was quite a challenging drawing and quite fun! Thank you for all of your suggestions and support over the years. 

Peace,

Amy

Toyland


Model Train Layout Printable

Hello and happy holidays! It's been a long time. I hope you all are well. I have been very busy the last few months designing some new printables. Over the summer as I was contemplating the upcoming holiday season, I thought about our circumstances during the pandemic. We have been avoiding going out shopping and mostly shopping online and I wondered how parents would be feeling come December about shopping for the holidays. I decided I wanted to create more printable toys. Toys that could be printed and gifted to kids to make on their own or as a project to do with their parents, or could be constructed and placed under the Christmas tree, or for whatever holiday you will be celebrating. I immediately had two ideas, a car wash for playing with toy cars, and a train layout that is designed so that the train stays on the track without falling off.

 


And so I got to designing and here's what I came up with, a Toy Car Wash Printable that has a building with brushes hanging from the ceiling, and a road strip to pull a toy car through the car wash with. I also included a play mat with road and parking spaces for the waiting car wash customers. To play, role your toy car onto the road strip until the front tires go over the bump in the strip then pull the strip through the car wash (you supply the toy cars).

 

 

My Model Train Layout Printable is a train layout of a small town scene, that includes a flat, two sided steam engine train that stands and goes around the track when pulled, with a train bridge over a river, roads and landscaping. Also included are detailed 3-D buildings, a water tower, houses and playground. Once assembled and glued, all pieces stay on layout and train and tire swing still move. A fun project for train lovers, model makers, and paper crafters. 

Other printables available in my shop for the holidays include gift/favor boxes, coloring books, jack in the boxes, a matching game, a sugar plum fairy ornament, and printable art. I hope you hop on over to my shop and have a look. :)

Peace,

Beach and Sea

Mermaid Family art print

Mermaid Family coloring page printable

Hello, I have a couple of new items in my shop to tell you about. First, my Mermaid Family drawing! The most detailed drawing I've ever done, inspired by my beautiful friend and muse Elena and her little boys. They are in a coral reef sea garden surrounded by a sea kelp forest with all sorts of sea creatures! Figure drawing is my favorite thing to draw and feels most natural for me. The human form is so beautiful. I know this is a mermaid, but still. This also fulfilled a landscape (or in this case a seascape) drawing I have wanted to explore for a long time. I hope you like my Mermaid Family as much as I do! Available now in my shop as a color print and as a coloring page printable.
 
Also new in my shop "Where was that? Beach Matching Game" printable, a forty piece picture card matching game featuring my original drawings. It includes twenty pairs of matching 2 inches square picture cards and a cute 2 1/4 inches square and 5/8 of an inch tall box for storage. It’s great memory skills fun and it’s the perfect size to stuff in a Christmas stocking, travel with, use as party favors or give as gifts.

Staying Cool in the Summer Heat


Sweet Escape printable file

Hello! We have been experiencing hot days here, so time for some cool thoughts! I've made my Sweet Escape drawing available in my shop as a printable file. Just purchase and instantly download for a sweet and whimsical anthropomorphic art print. A cute, colorful addition to any kitchen!

Ice Cream Cone Favor Boxes printable file

I have been craving ice cream and have decided to serve ice cream instead of birthday cake this year (my birthday is in August so I'm planning ahead). In the meantime we'll enjoy my ice cream cone favor boxes! Great for holding candies, trinkets or small gifts.
Matryoshka at the Beach coloring sheet printable file
The heat also has me dreaming of beach visits! My Matryoshka is enjoying her day at the beach in this coloring sheet printable file.

Cutie Patooties Mini Zine printable file
Since it's too hot to go outside and play, here's a mini zine to make and enjoy! This mostly picture book only takes one piece of paper, some folding, one scissor cut and you have a mini zine (book). It's a combination of photos of vintage toys and my original illustrations. Fun to make and enjoy with your little ones this summer or make up a batch as party favors to share with friends, or stick in a stocking or on a gift this holiday season!

To check out any of these items just click on the images above or the links below them.

I hope you and your loved ones are well. I look forward to posting again soon.

Peace,

Early Summer

Summer Elena Printable
Hello! Continuing my seasons series, this is my Summer Elena drawing. A color version and a black and white coloring sheet are both available in my shop for download.
1920s Bride Prints
Usually this time of year is full of weddings. Since much of life is postponed, I thought I would draw a bride inspired by brides of the past. I found the huge flower and fern bouquets and voluminous veils of the 1920s very inspiring. My 1920s Bride is available in print form as a full length, or a close-up portrait. Yes, prints are again available in my shop!

Jack in the Box Printable
Knowing kids are home, parents looking for fun activities, and many purse strings tighter than usual I've lowered the price of my printable toy crafts, party supplies and coloring sheets. In the US, my Jack in the Box in red, white and blue would make a fun activity for The Fourth of July.

Strawberry Favor Boxes Printable
It's warm weather here and that makes me think of fruit, fruit salads, and fruit deserts. My Strawberry Favor Boxes are a cute fruit that will last past the season. Print and use for gift or party favor boxes then use them as trinket boxes. I know I put my hair bands somewhere... Oh yeah, they are in my strawberry box!

I hope you and your loved ones are well or soon to be. Those of you who have experienced loss during this time are in my thoughts.

Spring Elena

Spring Elena
Hello! Hope you and your loved ones are well or on the mend. Thought we could all use some bright happy colors and a reminder to look out the window and enjoy nature. It's springtime where I am and in honor of the spring and new beginnings I thought I would do something different, something new. So I've started a series of drawings inspired by the seasons. This first one and all of them will be 8.5"x11" layouts and available as a printable file to instantly download and print yourself. "Spring Elena" is now available in my Etsy shop and my dot com at a considerably lower price than my prints. I'm able to do this because I won't be incurring the printing costs or the shipping fees (since I have always offered free shipping). Also, I have temporarily removed my prints from my shop. I will relist them once social distancing measures are no longer needed.

Spring Elena Coloring Page
Also a "Spring Elena" printable coloring page is available in my Etsy shop and my dot com (regularly priced). My cultural matryoshka coloring sheets, coloring books, and craft and party supply printables are still available in my shops as well.

Peace,
Amy

Sami Matryoshka

Sami with brown hair
Sami with blonde hair
Hello! I have a new drawing with two versions to choose from, a Sami with brown hair and one with blonde hair. Prints in a variety of sizes and a printable coloring sheet are now available in my Etsy shop and dot com. Merchandise such as cards, postcards, postage stamps, tote bags and phone cases are available in my zazzle shop.

Sami Matryoshka coloring sheet printable
I receive many suggestions of cultures to draw. Whenever I receive a suggestion I add it to my suggestions list (you can see it in the right hand column of my blog). I work almost exclusively from this list in the order I receive the suggestions. I have always looked forward to getting to this suggestion. I had known the Sami people for their reindeer herding and I'm a nut for Christmas. So you know, "The Reindeer People" I couldn't wait! Well, I hyped myself up about it for so many years that when I finally got to it. . . it was a little intimidating. Luckily one of my collectors who suggested I draw a Sami sent me images to inspire me and gave me some good direction. I really couldn't do this without you all. Thank you for all your continued support! :)

Peace,
Amy
