While mum was here, we painted some canvases and hung them up with the awesome command strips.  Since we can’t put holes in the walls without asking permission first, these are the perfect solution!  It was a lot of fun doing it with mum and we got lost in the ‘zone’.  It has inspired me to do some more painting and perhaps one day, I’ll take some lessons as I really love it! 

Here are some of the creations we came up with:

mum's creation


my artistic attempt


another creation Eli helped me with the final touches of the sideways strokes!


something I did for the kids room (didn't really turn out like I hoped though! oh well)


Eli painting...it only lasts about 15 minutes, but he loves it
