Arts n’ Crafts

If you ask my nieces (and sometimes nephews) what they want to do at Aunt Wendy’s they will say, “Arts n’ crafts!” What kid, old or young, doesn’t like to get creative?! One of the things that I love about budding little artists is their artistic freedom. The sky can be purple, the trees can be fuchsia, and the grass can be cornflower blue (I always loved that color in my box of Crayola crayons!). It’s the adults in their life who form their opinions for them and tell them that it can’t be so. If you look at a self portrait drawn by a child, drawing themselves larger than their parents is a sign of good self-esteem. My kids always drew themselves with a really large head! (Laughing!) They were VERY confident little boys!

My 6 year old niece Beau is a budding little artist with her own sense of style.


She drew this self prthrit “real quick” for me tonight when I said I loved the pic above!


I love her artistic freedom!


AND she can sing too! HA!HA!HA! Notice she has her art supplies with her. That’s my girl!

Her artwork inspired this card!

My card is part of the Cupcake Inspirations color theme challenge starting today!


Since we don’t have a sponsor this week, our random winner will get to choose which of our prior sponsors they would like to spend their $10 gift certificate with! What?!

My triple easel card was made using the instructions from this month’s Club Scrap Adirondacks Club Stamp kit. Click here for the blog post that includes a link to downloadable cutting and assembly instructions and a video tutorial! Isn’t this a great kit for Father’s Day cards?


I love this quote!
