Lacy Sunshine Blog Hop Eleanor and Pickles Through The Ages

Good Morning and welcome to my post for the Lacy Sunshine Blog Hop.

Late one night in June of 2012, Heather Valentin was on the phone with her best friend and was drawing, like many of us do when talking on the phone, and the result was the first Eleanor and Pickles image – Eleanor and Pickles' Book of Spells. The first image of Eleanor by herself was Eleanor Bookworm.

Now, 3 years later, Eleanor and Pickles make up the largest category of images created by Heather Valentin for Lacy Sunshine Stamps. Eleanor and Pickles along with various other character friends, like Tilly the dinosaur, have had many adventures over the past 3 years and Heather continues to draw new images of these delightful characters.

Over the next 2 days, the Lacy Sunshine DT gals will be celebrating Eleanor and Pickles' 3rd Anniversary/Birthday with our Through The Years Blog Hop. Please come hop along with us to win some “Pickletastic” prizes and see some Heather’s favorite Eleanor and Pickles images. You can visit Lacy Sunshine Shoppe to view the entire range of images available for purchase.

The hop begins here at Lacy Sunshine Challenge blog and then follows the order below. Make sure you stop at every blog on the hop and leave a comment. Don’t forget to leave a comment here too. Our prizes will be announced along with our New Challenge post on June 21st. Hope you enjoy the hop!!
