I always knew when I started my blog this summer that I wanted to have some sort of personal illustration accompanied with my posts. Phipps is such a large part of my life that I wanted her to be part of it, too. I inquired with many other bloggers looking for references. With a teacher's budget and this blog not being a major source of income, I needed to find someone who would be able to create what I wanted without a large price tag.
In one of my late night, online shopping ventures I discovered Linda from Little Tin Soldier. Like myself, she is also a teacher, but creates awesome outfit/paper doll illustrations on the side. Her paper dolls are absolutely precious!! I immediately contacted her and sent a few outfit pics. I could not be happier with the finished product! She was so patient as I asked her to add and/or remove certain items in the illustrations. She willingly did so and followed up with a proof each time. With a price tag of $28, I couldn't be happier. I purchased two paper dolls- one for my blog and one for teacher correspondence. I feel complete now!
Thanks, Linda, for such a great illustration as a finishing touch to my blog header!
Don't you think you need your very own personal paper doll?
