"When I grow up I'm going to be an artist", was the announcement Hannah made the other day as she held out her latest creation. From the time she was little and used to take the recycled paper from Kevin's school work or projects and turn them into "notebooks" or loads of these:
|Hannah's "Blues Clues" pawprints|
|Hannah at 4 with her little table, chair and supplies|
We'd find "Blues Clues" all around the house. In addition to her many works of art. Our refrigerator has always been her showcase.
|Sample of her many creations|
|Love Notes, Scrolls and Cards|
|A few potholders|
And for goodness sakes don't ever let her catch you making a huge faux pas as when Cameron cleaned his room and disposed of some of her creations. OHHHH the attitude he got when she announced "Cameron just threw my gifts away!!!".
Her creativity and boundless energy to pursue her craft gives us a constant supply of creations to enjoy. I do love her enthusiasm and will have to make more of an effort to provide various materials and means for her to continue to express this passion.
So we will continue to encourage our artist who has also announced in the past her desire to be a doctor, a mom, a chef, a teacher and a scientist. Knowing Hannah she could be all and do a great job!
