“What should we draw today?”
Often, Jade and I brainstorm funny or weird scenarios before we doodle.
“Wouldn’t it be funny if …”
We created mom as a “cat-bicycle” chasing a mouse.
The mouse really wants some cheese.
“Make the drawings come to life.”
After we doodle, sometimes Jade likes to act them out.
She’s loves adding drama to life (haha).
“You be Momma and I’ll be the mouse … the stuffy will be the cheese.”
Thank you Jade for your wonderful smiles and imagination.
We make beautiful nonsense together ;P
Our family almost always paints or draws at our kitchen table.
We’ve thought long and hard about how to best integrate our family’s art space and material.
Firstly, we wanted to incorporate Jade’s art into the work space.
We also wanted our art resources / materials to be easily accessible.
For a final touch, we envisioned Jade’s paintings in our living room.
Last month, we went to Ikea and purchased some Expedit bookshelves.
For us, it’s a perfect space solution.
Today, I put up Jade’s art in our living / working area (pics below).
For the last time, Santa double checks the toys before his big flight.
Jade insisted I draw a ball of yarn for mom.
I think our family has a new Christmas tradition!
Jade and I hammered on the icing and candy. Yum!!!
Our drawings have never tasted sooooo good !!!
Our family started a tradition last year of “drawing” our letter to Santa. This year, Jade asked for a “Minnie’s Bowtique” toy. Pictured is a warm winter sun, Minnie, Goofy and the brightly coloured bows. I added the text and snowflakes.
Last year, we requested a toy kitchen set. Santa really enjoyed listening to Jade with her artwork. And most importantly, Jade had a lot of fun too.
