The making of an artist!





































I am so behind in posts. I've tried to upload more pics and videos, but they don't seem to work...here's another attempt. Life has just been busy lately and I haven't been able to keep up with everything. I thought I would try and post our "work" from yesterday. A friend, Kelly, blogged about her daughter drawing people and I realized that Yan and I really hadn't worked on people yet. So we took some time yesterday to learn how to draw a basic (circle/line) person. Yan LOVED it! She kept going and going until I had 16+ drawings. I loved seeing the progression.
So here, I present to you...the artist and her art. (Please do not be worried about the lack of smiles...I'm sure they will get "happier" with time. :-)

I love it! She really took to the drawing, what fun! It is so neat when you can see the pride in her face at what she accomplished.

Fantastic! I saw: Barney, Sponge Bob and The Brave Little Toaster in there! Excellent work little Miss Yan!

I thought it looked like "Sponge Bob" too!!! I'll have to go back and check for the "Brave Little Toaster"! :-)

I love that you captured all of Yan's people drawings. I still have the picture that Jaidyn drew of our family for the first time. It brings a smile to my face everytime I look at it.

That is so COOL! I wish I had thought to save pictures in progression like that-- what a keepsake!!

Emily drew her first people exactly like that! How fun!

My business partner and I have started a new website for moms who live in the suburbs, small towns and rural settings. It’s called Out of Bound Moms and it’s just a community for moms to get together and chat about small town or suburban life and hang out in general. There is a social networking community where you can sign up for free and promote your blog. You can start a group page and promote your blog through that. The website has free membership and we don’t sell your info. it just has you sign up so you can have your own page, private messaging and privacy settings for pics and videos. It’s run my myself and my business partner charmaine, both of us are work at home moms who live in a small town. Anyways check out the website and sign up it is a fun and easy way to promote your blog that way you can drive new business to your website.
