The Toymaker

Marilyn Scott Waters is an amazing artist who has a website full of paper toys you can download and print - The Toymaker.com. It looks like her work is done in watercolors. Some of it is a little reminiscent of Beatrix Potter in a very nice way. She also has a lovely sense of typography, lay-out and color. I thought Julia would love making these but they’re still a little difficult for her to cut around finely. Soon, I'm sure.

The “toys” are definitely for young and old. Have a peek and have some fun. If you sign up for her newsletter, you’ll receive notices of new toys for all kinds of holidays including St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and the upcoming, all important, Mother’s Day!
