So I’ve finally finished the handmade bookmark for my son. Yay! He was really pleased with it and is already enjoying using it.
Here’s what it looks like now that it’s finished:
I suggested that he choose his own ribbon and he chose one that had ‘with love’ printed on it I decided to laminate it in the hopes that it would last a bit longer and not get bent and broken too quickly but my son assures me that he knows how much work I put into it and that he will look after it. I won’t hold it against him if he can’t though as it will give me an excuse to make another one for him!

I decided that I’d like to share some drawings that my children created recently. They love to join in when they see me drawing and painting and I think my 7 year old son is developing a real talent for art.
He enjoys making me little drawings to welcome me home when I’ve been away or to say that he loves me – which may not last for long so I’m gonna soak it up while I can! His drawings make me smile as they’re often very cute and cheerful.
Here’s a selection of his art that I really like:
And not to forget my little baby girl who is nearly 2 years old and a little artist in the making too. Here’s one of her drawings:
and she shows me that making art can be a bit messy and there’s nothing wrong with that!
