Usually for my favorite item I try to pick something different from the shop owners favorite but in this case I couldn't, I'm in love with the Disney Princess artwork she has done. These pieces are incredible, and really well done. She has a talent and that's for sure! My absolute favorite one if this Ariel one, its gorgeous! It's really hard to tell that this is actual homemade!
