Our new puppy in colored pencils. Rainbow is a symbol of hope and water is the element that refers to her name.

This week, my husband and I had a small vacation. We went for a two-day trip to see the Finnish countryside and some towns, but first and foremost: to choose a new family member! We have been waiting for this since our beloved beagle Cosmo passed away, but beagles are very popular, and cold winter seemed to postpone the litter.

But here she is!

She is only 5 weeks in the photo and we will get her after a few weeks. We have named her Saima. It’s a Finnish girl’s name and also very similar to Saimaa, the largest lake, where we went to see her. Saima also has a grey spot on her other leg. Grey is harmaa in Finnish, and a famous Finnish poet was Saima Harmaja. So there really was only one option for the name! We are eagerly waiting for her and hope that our beagle Stella will love her too.

Celebrating Saima – Animal Inkdom 40% OFF

Last spring, when waiting impatiently for her to be born, I decided that after I get to hold a new puppy in my arms, there will also be a sale for Animal Inkdom. So now’s the time!

Animal Inkdom - a drawing class taught by Paivi Eerola, Finland.

Animal Inkdom has been my most popular class during the past couple of years. When I recorded it, I had so much fun that I had to edit out some laughs. I think that the love for animals and the easy flow of ideas have made the class inspiring for everyone.

And because choosing a puppy isn’t something that happens often, I wanted the sale to be exceptional too. Animal Inkdom is 40% OFF, but only for this weekend! The sale ends on Sunday night, July 18, 2021, at midnight PDT. >> Buy Here!
