Story Time With Abuelo

It looks like I need to take a break from these promos and get back to my work. I have two deadlines that are right around the corner..... and I must stock up on some soft plushies for my shops. :)

This is the grandfather promo that I needed for my portfolio. My favorite past times with my grandfather was his story telling. Miss you abuelito.

What's one of your favorite past times with your grandparents?

Julissa this is so gorgeous :) I really love the way you've done the sheer curtains, they look amazing! So soft and light, you've captured the feel of the fabric perfectly. I miss my Pop's magic tricks... when we were kids he'd always do the 'disappearing coin in the handkerchief' trick and every time we'd be amazed!

Thanks everyone! Tamara: my grandma used to sew too! I wish I would have kept some of the dresses she used to make me as a young girl. :)

Bee: Too funny, my grandfather used to do the same disappearing coin act but he would find it behind our ears hehe
