My daughter loves to do art projects and I love to do art projects with her so I’m always looking for ways to help her make art that can be easily displayed and add to the eclectic charm of our home. We’ve been doing a lot of painting lately and she just loves making hand prints, which is where I got the inspiration for this sophisticated, Contemporary Black, White and Red hand print painting and the best thing about it is it’s a wonderful project for all ages!

I love the feeling of accomplishment that comes with creating something out of my own mind. As a young child I was always making things out of bits of fabric and pieces of nature. Growing up in the country far from power lines and the conveniences of city plumbing I was always encouraged to use my creativity and imagination for entertainment, not to mention fortunate enough to have a mother with an endless surplus of craft supplies.
When I grew up I stopped sewing and creating for a lot of years, it had become to frustrating with the short patience I’d developed through teen hood, but when I got pregnant that all changed(for the most part). I suddenly had the patience to create patterns and replace seams. Small imperfections became unimportant and I no longer cared so much for the little things that no one could notice but me.
This week I redesigned a pattern I’d made previously and created a set of Ribbon Giraffes in Orange and Red. They are so soft and lovable, not to mention they stand all on their own. It’s definitely been hard to come to terms with the idea of parting with these little guys, but it is their destiny to be loved and adored by an active imagination on a safari through the African planes!
