It was Spring of 2014. We were planning on visiting my family in the States and I thought i it would be nice if I can give our lovely niece a present I made myself. Since I was running out of time to make her anything special, I thought perhaps a sketch of her would be a wonderful handmade gift from her aunt. And so I did! (I also made one for my grandma who was about to celebrate her 95th birthday that year. You can check that out on this post).
I used a photo of her that my sister emailed to me when she was 5 months old. Good thing I was able to finish it on the day we flew. I remember sitting at the airport tweaking my sketch while waiting for our flight departure.
When we got there, my husband and I bought a picture frame at Walmart to put my sketch in.
Isn’t she just adorable? Now this cutie has turned 3!
