Sassy Lashes!

I just had to write a special post: I've gotten several comments and emails wondering: are your animals all girls? Can boys have flirty lashes, too? Oh my, YES! Meet Exhibit A, my son William: a curly-haired, blond (green-eyed)boy, with the world's longest, curly, BLACK lashes. (No, it's NOT fair, but God gave US mascara.) I especially love this pic of him above (go ahead, click on it for the close up!)because being wet his eyes really look like they each have four or five cartoony lashes, like my illustrations! (and also for that ONE wet curl sticking up, but that may have been contrived for the photo op...!)


And let me tell you: he knows how to use them! He was batting those things and peering coyly out from under them at the ladies since the tender age of one(see below)! (amazing how they just *know* these things!) Women LOVE him, he's gonna be trouble!!
So, now you know! All my critters can go either way!* They're just BIG FLIRTS! ;)

ARE YOU A LEAP YEAR BABY?** Please leave a comment in this post if today is your birthday, that might deserve a very special, crazy fabulous card! ;)

* Get your mind out of the gutter! This is still a PG site!

** Don't say you are if you're not just to get a card! I might ask for proof! (But if you know someone who does, you might want to send them here...) There are plenty to go around later, I promise! :)

OH MY GOSH; major heartbreaker on your hands; he's beyond adorable! I wanna give him a little *kiss*. :)

I just bought both the hippy and hoppy set - I cannot WAIT to receive them; however, I promise not to hurt the postal worker. Thanks for all the great inspiration!

LOVE those pics of William - someday he'll warm up to me; I just know it & I will get a hug back...be prepared for my heart to melt when it happens.

Oh MY!! What a little LOVE!!! Nope, not my b-day and I've already been spoiled with a fantastic Melanie original AND your FAB blog candy!!! :) It's my Grandmother's b-day today and she always loves to tell us now how she's actually YOUNGER than her grand-children!!! LOL

That lil face is to die for Melanie. My youngest son has those killer lashes too. As he gets older they don't seem to be getting shorter either. He wears glasses and they are so long they press up against his glasses, and yep they curl up too!!

He's such a sweety - makes me want to squeeze his little cheeks and give him a little kiss. He looks like a happy little guy.

Deb said...

It wasn't my birthday and of course I adore all of your creations, but this little darling is certainly the best by far and usually the boys do get the great lashes!! My son had/has them too and my nephew. A lady in the store one time said what gorgeous eyes and such a waste on a boy, NOT!!!!

JenMarie said...

He is adorable!! The gals will be drooling over this one!

dpkennedy said...

What a super cutie!! Yeah, I know those kinda boys...have a couple myself. They can do no wrong when it comes to the ladies...grandma, teachers, neighbors...for now;)
