Art We've Been Doing

Ernie updated our art line- the streamers were my contribution, Ernie's work is on the left, Mimi's is on the right. So nice and orderly, right?

I'm totally in love with these flowers that Ernie started drawing.  Yum.

This, she says, is Peter Rabbit.  He's eating radishes.  And I'm not going to insert ANY other comments here, I'm just glad she's here to translate for me!

We have the requisite-for-any-Pinner melted crayon drawings- these were done a few weeks ago.  Honestly, these weren't a big hit.  The girls didn't have the patience to hold the blow dryer for that long, so I ended up doing that part for them.  My kitchen floor still has bits of crayon wax, because it blew EVERYWHERE.  And the end product...is kind of Rainbow Bright in the Horror Fun House.  But hey, LOTS of other people love doing this project!  (We used cardboard, double sided tape, and a lot of old crayons.)

Yeah, see I think it looks kinda cool, but I'd rather color with the crayons than melt them like that. Maybe after I'd colored......

Love your art wall.....perfect. Don't you just love this stage in their life...when all their art is a master piece....it's sad as we get older we lose that since of "art"

Love the art line:) I've been trying to get my daughter to do the crayon melt with her daughter. I may have to do it virtually, over webcam, with her! That could be fun.... I may have just had an idea!

I love the abstract painting on the right - beautiful colors. The flowers are adorable. Olivia does snails, clouds, and rainbows. There are a few drawings that I'm unsure of - cats or people and other things?! Sometimes she tells me. They are cute even if I can't make them out.

Ahh, the pinner crayon melt(giggle). Do you share you Pinterest link? I'd love to see yours.
