December…it’s holiday season

Standard

…and nothing says merry christmas like some good old hand made cards! We’ve been working on ours this past week and having quite a blast..

I decided that i wanted to send out actual cards to folks this year and not just egreetings..at the same time i wanted to make sure that my paper greeting does not over damage the environment. So, we decided to work with what we had and use it creatively. We reused papers from Diwali greeting and wedding invites as well as whatever odds and ends and leftover colored papers I had. And we cut up the kids’ art work and used that to stick and make bright and happy cards for the family. Since we do painting a couple of times each week at least, we had a lot of material to work with! We used different styles to paint…we used palm prints and foot prints, finger prints and finger painting, painting with brushes and dot markers too. And some of the art work from school too!

About myfourboysandme

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
