Etsy extraordinary

Does it bother anyone else that the female leads in fairy tales these days are morphing into Bratz dolls? As the mom of a barely toddler daughter who's past the rattles and simple blocks, I'm starting to take a look at what bounty toy stores hold these days. And I have to say, I'm really bugged by princesses who look vaguely hookeresque. One of my favorite Etsy shops is badbird who offers a glimpse into the anti-fairy tale. The Sisters Grimm, if you will. Cranky girls, beautifully drawn, who shall one day rule the land with iron fists and write sassy blogs.

I was just cruising around the blogs and found yours. These are really cool illustrations! I love the cranky little attitude they have. Reminds me of myself when I was a kid...long time ago.
