Shameless Family Promotion

My older daughter is a fine artist.  That has two meanings.  Sort of like my being a poor preacher.  Anyway, Jennifer is an artist who used to have a real art job, but when the economy crashed in 2008, so did her employer.

Artists must be entrepreneurs, so Jennifer became "Custom Toy Portrait" and then "Your Toy Portrait."

 The concept is that every child has a favorite toy, usually a stuffed animal.

Sometimes the toys are plastic.

Jennifer will paint it, in 5x7" or 8x10" size.
 Sometimes they are metal. 

 Mostly they are soft.

Buy one.  You were a child so what was your favorite toy?  Or your child's?  Or your grandchild's?  They make good Christmas presents.  Or Birthday presents.  Jennifer does these from photos or from "live" sittings of the toys.
