When I was growing up I was always surrounded by arts and crafts. My mom is an artist so she was always painting. We used to do some kind of crafty project together everyday. There is one painting in particular that she kept over the years and is now hanging in my son's room. I think I was about three years old when we made it.
Here is a photo of it:
Now I plan on doing the same with my two year old son. I strongly believe that my childhood art making has evolved into my love of handmade and my creativity in making jewellery. With that in mind, I've started a book for him to draw in so that I can see the development of his drawings over the years. I see it as the first in a series of many little sketchbooks. I think that they will be something small and easy to keep and I also think it will be fun for him to look at when he's older. Right now he can make lines, circles and dots. I can't wait to see how he draws stick figures and all those fun things!
What are some crafts from your childhood that you remember?
