We "Heart" Art!

>> Wednesday, May 13, 2009


Join the Three Bay B Chicks, Domestically Challenged, and I'm Living Proof that God Has a Sense of Humor as they celebrate art and being creative this week. These three blogs are sponsoring an event called "We Heart Art," which gives you the chance to not only showcase your artwork or creative projects, but also your kid's handiwork. Prizes for children and adults will be awarded to a few lucky winners selected at random.






Before Easter, my 4-yr. old wanted to make gifts for her preschool teachers. We wanted to do something different, so we made cotton-ball bunnies out of baby food jars. She glued cotton balls all over, added the eyes, and pink pom-poms for the tails. Bits of broom straw were used for whiskers and stiff felt was used for the ears. Even though the eyes were a little crooked and the bunny tails were close to the ears - they were cherished gifts that her teachers truly appreciated!




Nani's daddy is in the Army National Guard. Nani's daddy flies on helicopters. Nani decided to draw her own interpretation of daddy's helicopter.






I only recently started to really get interested in photography. Having two dogs and two kids gives me plenty of subjects ready and willing for a photo. Two of my favorite photos follow:



This was taken two days after a major snowstorm hit us here in Colorado. The snow started to melt and drain through our downspout. I thought I'd take a chance and see what I could come up with.






This photo was taken of my then 8-month old daughter and our German Shepherd. I like to call it "Friends Forever"
