We "Heart" Art Too!


I just stumbled upon this great event going on over at Three Bay B Chicks, Im Living Proof That God Has A Sense Of Humor, and Domestically Challenged. Its Called "We Heart Art" and its a chance to display your artwork, and your children's as well!!
How fun! Please go check out all three websites to learn more about it.

Now on to MY Goodies.....
I am a scrapbooking FANATIC and I LOVE all things crafty and creative. Unfortunately, my scanner is too small to show you all of my current scrapbooking work...but, I did find a few entries that I think will show just how much I HEART art!

This is a scrapbook I did called "Teaching Is A Work Of Heart!" It was an A to Z book...and I am including just a few of the pages to show what it was all about...hope you enjoy it!







Now...for the real reason I did this, for my son. He is only five but really has a talent for "all things art!" He will paint, draw, color, and just loves to cut and paste projects! I included some of what I consider to be his most "heartfelt" work. He helped pick these out and well, I just thought he should have a say as to what I posted!!!

He LOVES Firetrucks...he painted this at four after we went to visit the local city Fire Department....How FUN!!!


He is a real softy when it comes to Mommy....and he always draws me Rainbows, Flowers, and Hearts...Such a sweetie!

This is his Halloween Marble Art he did at school...that is a really fun project!


And last, we have this adorable reindeer he made for Christmas...it's so funny because we still have it hanging in our kitchen. It's just too cute to take down! (I know all you Mom's can understand that!)

Well, this was just a blast digging out all the artwork and including it for all of you to see! I so believe that having art, both in our schools and at home, is crucial for children to develop their minds and work those little hands and fingers as well!
Thanks for stopping by to visit us! :)

Yes, your son def. comes by his talent naturally, which is more than mine can say. I loved looking at these bulletin boards, as I am a teacher!

I love his reindeer! I admire scrapbooking, but I haven't gotten into it myself. I think I'd rather take a picture or write a poem.

Hi. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your blog. The letter scrap pages are really cool. I might do something like that. I have posted a few of my pages throughout my blog. Not many pages tho'. I think I'm going to post the pages I did at the convention. It was so rushed that I have to still finish adding the pics to them. I will add them on my page after.
