We Heart Art

Join the , 3baybchicks, 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.

Sadly, I have to report to you that I haven't a crafty or creative bone in my body! I figured this out a quite a young age, when other kids were creating masterpieces with their pastels and I was just left with a mess and crayon all over my hands.

Today I am in awe of the projects that other ladies are able produce. And, while I think I would like to try some of the awesome creations...I remember that it would not work out for me. I am better to admire from afar and attend craft shows and fairs. I have accepted this now.

For fun,I thought I would take part in the We Heart Art blog carnival and showcase a few of my children's work.

Emily, is my eleven year old daughter.
This school year she has attended weekly sewing classes. A few of the things she has sewn are pajama pants, a t-shirt and shorts. Right now she is working on a reusable tote bag. After that her plan is to make a pair of denim capris!

These are her pajama pants!

She also made this fleece throw!

Then last week she began crocheting!

I am thrilled that she is able to pick up these skills so easily.

Matthew is my five year old son.

All About Chicks

by Matthew

Chicks eat seeds.
Chicks can be black.
Chicks can be yellow.

This ode to chicks has a proud home on my fridge!

Thank you to the hosting blogs! It is fun to showcase some of your kids handiwork, and fun to take a peak at what others have done.

Very nice!! My kids also have comfy blankets that they just adore!!

I can be a little crafty. I posted some of my house painting today.

Well done Emily! She's jolly good sewer and I just love the chick Matthew! I used to be crafty in my youth, but I have found the older I get, the less time I MAKE to do the things I enjoy. I am still wanting to try scrap booking - even bought a kit, but I just don't seem to get down to it! :(

Your kids are really talented! I am like you. I'm not the best visual artist and certainly am not crafty. The only art that I am good at is music.

Mighty M said...

Very creative! Your daughter can sew way better than I - can I hire her?? ;-)

Very impressive!! I love to sew and if I ever finish Baby Sister's baby blanket I will show off the blanket, curtains and wall hanging I made for her. But first I really need to take the time to finish her blanket. I don't know U just cannot force myself to do it.

E @ Scottsville said...

Oh surely you've got SOME craft in you SOMEWHERE! When you least expect it, it'll show up. Maybe not until the grandkids come along. ha ha ha

Love how creative your kiddos are!

Thanks for visiting me over at my blog! Come back anytime.

So... where did these talented kids come from if you're not crafty?? ;-)

Emily did a great job on her sewing and crochet (so far).

Enjoy today's sunshine... but don't blow away. It's crazy windy out there isn't it??

Mrsbear said...

Very cute, both of their contributions. Your daughter is quite talented with a needle and some thread. In ways that I'll never be, for sure. ;)

Ali said...

Awww how cute! What a wonderful little seamstress and poet you have in the making! =)

Helene said...

Your daughter is very talented with her knitting and sewing capabilities!!! Good for her! I can't even sew a button on a pair of pants!!!

And I love your son's drawing!! And the poem was especially cute!!!

Kelli said...

Thanks for stopping by my page! Love all of the photos, especially of your town. It's beautiful! And I love the sewing projects of your daughter's ...I can't sew to save my LIFE, but learning is on my Bucket List! :)

I love the pajamas your daughter sewed! How great that she has learned so much! I wish I knew how still!! Your son's chick is adorable-definitely deserves a place on the fridge! I love this carnival-It's great-so much fun to see everyone's art work.

Jenny said...

How cool that your daughter is learning to sew already. I wish I would have been taught.

Mommy Mac said...


I have been meaning to get you on my sidebar for awhile now, but have yet to do it! It's on my to-do for this coming week!

I am so happy you have a seamstress in the house! She is ambitious and successful!

You have got to have some creativity in there somewhere! Look how great your blog looks! Don't you go selling yourself short.

What I would do without creativity!!! AAAGGHHH!!!
