8 Today!

Happy Birthday young man! Mum x

Inspire Me Thursday - handmade christmas

It has become a bit of a tradition for a couple of years now that Kamal (with a little help from me) has made everyone cards and presents, partly because we are always short of cash this time of year but I just feel it's nice for Kamal to understand that Christmas is not just about money and what toys you get. This year he has decided on jewellery for the girlies in the family and models for everyone else and they are all his own work.

Gorgeous christmas card designs, at this rate he will make a million long before I ever do! But not to be out done I have a little drawing to give to nanna and papa. Merry Christmas everyone!

AEM DAY 30 - Inspire me Thursday

Inspire Me Thursday is back, and low and behold if this weeks subject isn't line drawings - and more specifically it mentions the one-line drawings Sarah Pezdek-Smith and I did a while back. Fame at last! Thanks should go to Sarah for sparking this off in the first place, it's opened up my drawing in a way 3 years at art school could never do!

Today also coincided with Kamal's friend's art lesson so we all had a go. Trying to get 7 year olds to do this is quite a challenge as they were both cheating but it was a lot of fun. Here is Kamal's drawing of me... It's a good job I'm not insecure or I could have a hang up about my nose looking like a coat hanger - better than a beak I suppose. And my hair's not that curly, it had just been raining. Anyway I digress, this is my drawing of Kamal....
....yes he does look like a girl....hee hee....

and last but definately not least, Patrick's drawing of Kamal. Kamal unfortunately is a bit of a fidget so Patrick had a bit of trouble getting it right but I think it looks fantastic, Picasso would be very proud!
