Last Sunday I was at the christmas fair organised by St.Mary’s in baldoyle. It was a fun day, made even better because my little girl Ceri was with me!
I was showing off some of my paintings as well as my cards and gifts! I LOVE PAINTING! It’s not something I get to do a lot of recently so just displaying them gives me the motivation to pick up my brush. I’m starting to hoard them, I really must start my etsy shop back up again!
All you need is love
I’m lucky enough to have two loves in my life (crafting aside of course).
I have an 11yr old daughter called Ceri and a fabulous partner called Micheal, they are both crazy and keep me laughing.
Ceri has my arty streak, she is great at drawing which was never my strong point. I remember once showing my cousin lisa a portrait I drew of her only to have her debate for 20 mins who it was… “A gargoyle, no shrek, no no is it a monster”. Ceri’s confidence in her art is amazing, I love that most about children, that pride in what they make. When do we lose that as adults?, we become almost bashful about what we make and resort to blogs to show off our skills. Ceri keeps me young, how could I act my age when surrounded by One Direction posters and glitter???
Micheal is not arty, but he has a great appreciation for art and great patience to endure the madness it brings to our house. A lesser man would complain about our house becoming a pink explosion for breast cancer awareness or miss eating at the table because a knitting project can’t be moved. Not Micheal, from our first date he has shown he is quite a man and I love him for it. Our debates keep my brain ticking and his logic and business sense keep me grounded.. My Ying and Yang, My loves xxx
