Today my little crazy man turns three.
|A few hours before I went in to the hospital. I did my hair. And shaved my legs. And um, other things. Naivety is funny.|
|The day he was baptized. I was thinking "what a wonderful day". Jack was thinking "I want your boobie"!|

A little bit about Amanda:
Hi, I’m Amanda and I run Let’s All Make Believe from my Metro Atlanta home. I live with my husband and our two busy little boys (4 and 1) who are a constant inspiration for my artwork. In school, I did not have the chance to study art, but a dream of mine is to learn watercolor or graphic design in that sort of environment.
I started Make Believe as a creative outlet when I was somewhat new to being a stay at home mom. I would say my creative process is ideal for a mother of young children; because my drawings are digital, it is easy to correct mistakes, and I can click “save” at any point and return later without needing to clean up any paints or chemicals. While it’s not usually obvious in my nursery art designs, I am heavily inspired by children’s book illustrations from the 1950’s-60s. It is very rewarding to know that my nursery prints have found their way to various places in the world. From what I have seen, people have taken nursery decorating to a great new level, and it is fun for me to offer an affordable product that will be part of a child’s early life.
If I’m not working on new sketches, I love spending time with my boys, shopping, drinking insane amounts of coffee, and cooking. When I get the spare moment, I like to update my blog www.makebelievenurseryart.com , where you can read more about me and my family, my artwork, and things which I adore.
