And I also bought this little character. ANyone who has followed this blog over the years knows that I sort oof collect these little cuties. And by the way, Indigo Twins... I have been meaning to tell you CONGRATS for being featured in a magazine lately. Was it a Somerset mag?! I can't remember, but I definitely recognized your work and was like, "HEY! I know them!". Even though, in the literal sense, I guess I really don't. I still want you two to come to Louisiana and do a retreat to teach us how to make these cute things!!
Ok. Moving on... Just another typical day at Mo's house!
Emma shows up with a friend to do an art project, with Bo bobbling along behind her about to pass out from the 300 yard walk across the yard!! That is one F.A.T. dog!!
It was no time at all before two other little monkeys had joined the show!
Lucky for all of them, I keep extra projects around all the time. I love it that I have people who love me and know me and call me when there are Dollar Spot items that I may need to check out for my kids' projects!! Thanks, Kimie!!
Piper didnt' get to participate in Camp Creative this time around, but maybe later!! She still gets to reap some of the rewards because she is one of my weekend regulars with Emma Lou.
And this little pipsqueak right here would paint that piece of wood for about 3 hours. And it could be turned about 6 different colors in the process. She LOVES to paint "I wanna paint myself". I think that means "by myself".
And this one really likes to paint too, but honestly, it's all about being with the big girls!
I drew this little fleur de lis on her board, and I was rather stunned at what a good job she did making it actually LOOK like a fleur de lis, even using paint and a paintbrush.
And then she started doing her houses. I swear, she really amazes me!!
See? Now it's brown! Just sayin'!
I went through the basic principles of the color wheel with Camp Creative, and was amazed when Todd the Bod wanted me to explain it to him!! Analagous colors, complimentary colors, primary colors, warm vs. cool, etc.
I'm not just saying this because I'm her mom.... Hahahaha... yes I am!! She is really talented!! For a four year old, painting houses without even drawing them on the paper first. Go, child, go!
Adding a door and a tree...I mean, really!!
the finished products. Not sure what they will do with these monogram plaques, but it helped busy up a Sunday afternoon!
