~ quilled stick family

 ~ hello
as you can see I still have stick people on the brain
I wanted to make a decor piece that was personalized to post on MY ETSY SITE
so I thought why not use my sister's family as my model

so that's what I did...and my niece Nicole is spot on to what she looked like at 4 years old
but my nephew Jesse is wondering why he is in diapers {because he is now 20}
and I said that is how I still see the cute little guy he has always been

my sister has super curly hair but  I started making the dad and mom before
I decided to use her family as my model.....she always wanted straight hair any way

and their dog basil {who has now passed away} was a 150lb basset hound
but you get the picture

I made cards out of each family member as well
so I will show you those soon
