Happy first Friday of Spring 2013!
Has the week flown by for you?
It sure has for me ...
as usual, my studio is humming with
lots of custom illustrations in the works
and before I knew it Friday flew in the window
(how did that happen?)!

Since all of this flying is going on,
I thought the perfect way to end the week
would be a little MORE flying ...

Since it's officially spring now,
I think we're allowed to dream about
flying kites on a beach, don't you?
Of course!
And what would be more springlike than to be
wearing a Lilly Pulitzer dress while flying it?
My "Lilly Girl" illustration above is dressed in the
 Payton dress covered in tulips and the hot pink McKim wedge.

I love all of Lilly's happy pastel spring colors ...
and following them on Pinterest is like going to a spring party ...
a party where you start out on the porch with a mint julep ...

... and follow that up with a leisurely afternoon sail!

You can feel even more springlike by
going HERE to see a video of one of the fabric designs being painted.

Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!
Lay back with your mint julep so it won't fly by too fast!
See you Monday!

I'm loving that animated illustration Sandy. Fabulously dressed lady flying a kite. Very pretty doll. Yes! I've been extremely busy all week. I can't believe Easter is so soon! Have a great weekend doll and have some fun.

Sandy, this week flew by for me as well. All the better as the weekend comes faster right :) I just hope that doesn't fly by as well. Haha couldn't resist that XD Loving your fabulous new "Lilly Girl" illustration! I would like to wear a pretty dress and join her in flying a kite on the beach. If only the weather would cooperate.

Have a splendid weekend!
