I took The Kid for some "Mommy And Me" time, and we purchased a few wooden craft items for her to paint. Plus some new paint brushes with grippies. Plus a crap ton of those Plaid craft paints.
Did you know that those paints are made here in the good ole U.S. of A.?
Anywho, here is the first in her series of mini bird houses.
I just love it. The neon colors she picked out, the glitter, the randomness. I love it!
And I find it terribly inspiring.
Children just paint what they like. They don't worry about rules or what's popular or provocative. They just know what they like, so that's what they paint.
I strive to be more like that in everything I craft. The older I get, the more I succeed at it, but still. It is always good to get a reminder.
