Dear Red Elephant of Mati,

I would like to tell you how inspiring you are. Because ever since I saw you I keep making elephants with colorful papers too and having you hanging on my tiny chaotic studio wall is definitely a dream come true.

Elephant love to you, -- Laurie G. (ArtNest pal)

Daphne said...

If I won this fabulous ellie, I would have to struggle to decide where to put her...in my studio? Or would I be a nice mom and put her in my son's room? He's five months old and LOVES looking at the art on his walls...I think he needs this elephant!

goldenbird said...

tiny.Kahuna said...

Hello Mati,
right a few minutes ago I bought your "there's nothing wrong with you"-print (I fancy with it for a long time), so if you pick me you can send the goregeous and cute ellie together with it - that would be sooooooo fine and the ellie is not alone on his journey around the world. I have a wonderful place in my office for it! ;o))
I will keep my fingers crossed - wish me luck!
Greetings from Germany
Anke
