Fly



The other day we had some playmates over.  We pulled out a table, some canvas and paints and decided to FLY.




They were all protective of their ideas...at first.  Then they couldn't wait to see each other's creations.





Big Chick didn't get a chance to finish hers, but overall they each had their very own design.  No blue skies here:) 





Have you had the chance to fly lately??






Have a blessed day.






Oh and another give-away alert:)  My friend "The Lady" is a having her 400th post give-away this week.  Go on over and leave a comment for a chance to win my "Rest Easy" necklace.

Pin It!

  6. What a fun day! Great idea that I might do with my kids. They all love drawing, but I think it would be even more special on canvas! And by the way, your necklace was a great encouragement to me while in Ukraine. A great reminder!

  17. Oh YOU are the fun mama! I love that girlfriend.

    Yes, we'll have to talk soon girl. I thought Summer was supposed to be this relaxing vacation and instead I seem to be busier than I want to be! I would totally have benefitted from your little sweet painting party.

    That's it. I'm moving there.

    :) Ha! Wouldn't that be wonderful...

  22. You have some great little artists there, maybe you should contract them as subs...hehe : ) Funny that the theme would be FLY, I have been thinking about a word that I would want one of your pieces...the word I came up with was FLY, maybe with angel wings...a reminder to not become entangled in the things/worries of this world! Hope you have a great Tuesday!

  23. love this, when my punk is old enough and doesn't want to paint himself or the whole kitchen, I will certainly let him fly...the kid basically already does, but ya know with a piant brush! your little chick is naturally very talented with that brush, love all of them!! xo

  27. I love it! I've been wanting to do a paint day with my boys - and I think they would love this! I think we'll google hot air balloons first so they get some color ideas! You are an inspiration!

  28. Ahh, it's so sweet that your chicks want to be artists like their mommy. I'm sure they told their friends proudly about their mother's creative spirit. Teaching and encouraging your chicks and their friends to FLY will be something they are going to look forward to always.

    Now off to sign up for your friend's give-away.

    Fly Becky Fly!
