Cherished Artwork

by Emily on May 10, 2011

Our little Pip has been an active crayon scribbler for at least the past 9 months now and I am already dreaming up ways to foster her creativity and encourage her to play with paint, mud, clay, flowers, etc.  Pip likes to color in her Elmo coloring book but anytime I get some of my “homework” out, she’d much prefer to grade my papers with crayons.  Sadly, I’m not sure high school students would appreciate Crayola technique as I do.  If this doesn’t sound too tacky, I did put in a request for a Mother’s Day gift…I wanted Pip to start a “Mommy Book.”  The recent issue of Real Simple had a great article about the various journals filled with delightful drawings, poems, letter and doodles dedicated to Mom.  I too wanted to collect Pip’s evolution in this creative outlet, so I put in my request and was very pleased when my leather bound journal was delivered on Mother’s Day.  What a beautiful gift to start (thank you Daddy for the legwork to make it happen & putting up with my very specific request)!

Page one…Mother’s Day 2011! I am a very happy and proud mother!  You can almost see a bit of Monet and Picasso in her technique, right?

I also recently stumbled onto another “series” of how-to display/arrange/keep your kids artwork and magically found myself daydreaming into the future of Pip’s creations.  These were a few photos that impressed me with their simplicity.  Thank you (again) Modern Parents Messy Kids for fabulous ideas.

Another suggestion-keep the important artwork and pass along early drafts-photographing them first.  Below you put photographed art collection into a book for keepsake. Brilliant with less clutter (my problem)!

Love the quote and again simple idea of hanging on the line approach.  Ikea has wire curtain hangers that would be perfect to install for artwork.

I think this would be so much fun-wallpaper frames, but wonder if Pip would understand which walls are okay to color on and which aren’t.  Yikes!

And finally….WOW…not even sure how this is done but it looks amazing!  What a beautiful piece or art.  How do you narrow it down?  Each year?  Over the course of 5 years?  Medium used-crayola, finger paint, watercolor, pencil?  I am so impressed and it looks fantastic!

Cheers to art in your home!

Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless its a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.

Beaucoup couponers tendance 脿 茅viter les grands centres commerciaux chaque fois que possible, parce que les centres commerciaux ont souvent magasins de luxe qui offre des coupons ou mettez offres. M锚me si certains magasins de centre commercial n’ont bonnes affaires, il peut 锚tre difficile de les conna卯tre parce que la plupart de ces magasins ont don circulaires ou des publicit茅s t茅l茅vis茅es annon莽ant leurs promotions en cours. Si, par exemple, votre magasin de mode pr茅f茅r茅 a une vente d’une journ茅e offrant 25 pour cent sur tout, vous ne pouvez pas savoir 脿 ce sujet jusqu’脿 ce qu’un ami vous montre la veste adorable elle a obtenu une forte d茅cote, mais par ce point vous avez manqu茅 l’affaire. Heureusement, il existe un moyen de contourner cela. L’application Shopular peut vous donner la verit茅 sur les magasins qui ont les meilleures offres, bons de r茅duction, et les ventes 脿 n’importe quelle application temps.Le Shopular donn茅 va o霉 bon nombre de vos favoris essay茅 et vrai couponing apps don risque. Il regroupe les derni猫res offres des magasins comme Abercrombie Fitch, Hollister, et les magasins mentionn茅s ci-dessus. Vous trouverez de tout, des coupons 脿 jour uniquement les ventes, aux mises 脿 jour sur la date traite notamment end.When vous vous connectez 脿 l’application, il vous demandera si elle peut suivre votre position (comme beaucoup d’applications le font), puis il vous offrira une option de filtrer les offres en fonction de vos centres commerciaux locaux. Une liste de centres commerciaux viendra, et vous pouvez cliquer sur celui que vous pr茅voyez de visiter afin que vous puissiez voir les meilleures offres there.The magasins qui ont de l’argent de reduction disponible affiche une bande rouge dans le coin sup茅rieur droit de la offre (comme le montre la photo ci-dessus sur les offres de voyage pour Hollister, Aeropostale, et Coldwater Creek.) Les magasins avec d’autres offres, comme des rabais sur certains articles ou des rabais importants sur tout jeu, seront simplement 茅num茅r茅s sans stripe.In rouge De plus, si vous voulez savoir si votre magasin pr茅f茅r茅 est d’avoir une vente, vous pouvez cliquer sur la loupe dans le coin sup茅rieur droit de l’application et recherchez un magasin par nom. Vous pouvez cliquer sur le symbole "coeur" sur un coupon ou accord particulier, et il sera ajout茅 脿 votre liste d’offres personnelle. Pour acc茅der 脿 cette, appuyez simplement sur l’ic么ne en haut de la page qui a un coeur avec un cercle autour d’elle suivie par le mot 芦liste禄. Globalement, je trouve Shopular d’锚tre incroyablement utile pour les randonn茅es au centre commercial. Vous ferez des 茅conomies sur les marques haut de gamme qui peuvent vous ont co没t茅 le prix fort dans le pass茅.
