I don't say much here about Evie - when we're home she is usually off keeping busy doing her own things - reading, playing her DS, playing with Littlest Pet Shops, watching Animal Planet.

I also love the hair, sort of blowing in the breeze, but in big chunks. Oh - and the softball-type shirt with her initials on it! This is her first real stab at a 'portrait', I think. Usually she sticks to drawing animals, her first and last real love. I think she's got some talent, no?
