Painting egg carton cups again! Remember when we made mermaids? Emma is a little older now and was very interested in recreating this project. I got the idea initially from Pinterest. The mermaid idea looked fun and accessible for Emma.
Painting has been quite therapeutic lately so we will probably dive into all sorts of creative projects in the coming weeks.
I came across another artist awhile back that really took my breath away—Michelle Armas. I really want one of her paintings on my wall some day. They are stunning! Her work is so special to me that an art print would not quite cut it.
In only a few cases have I felt that investing in the original piece of art is worth it. Mark Rothko is another example of an artist that I would prefer an original. Don’t get me wrong I love art prints. In the past I have happily purchased them from Studio Violet, the Black Apple, Sandra Juto, Three Fish Studios and Ashley G. I was gifted two amazing pieces from my friend Jason and unfortunately don’t really have any more wall space in the cottage (because there are so many windows!) but I wish that I did. I am a very visual person and am always inspired by the art in my home.
Making fun and colorful projects at home and school. Tomorrow is the last day working at my school for the rest of the year. Funny to think about it that way. I will be on maternity leave and enjoying baby Emma Clover. My home projects will be in full swing soon. Making birth announcements, scrubbing everything, getting a crib and just general nesting. I am looking forward to it all very much.
