It's all gone a bit arty.....

The arty theme has continued in the house this week.  I've slowed down a bit but I think that's why I like to make the most of my free Saturday - it only comes every other week and I have to do what I can.  I am in the midst of decorating a cigar box so there'll be pics of that when it's done.

Last night my daughter got in from school and wanted to do some painting.  She and her brother had just got started when I realised she had some homework to do so she came and sat with me in another room to do it.  When she went back to the dining room table she cried out, "Oh no!!"  Oooohhhh.......her brother (three-and-a-half) had been quietly's the quiet bit that's the scary part isn't it?

Here's what he had done....

What was coloured paint was now black. He'd tried to mix himself some colours by adding lots of black paint.  Ah well, at least he hadn't painted the walls and luckily I had more paints stashed away in the cupboard so it wasn't the massive disaster it might have been.


  1. Oh dear, but he has got to start somewhere!

  2. Bless him, he was so distraught that he hadn't been able to make the colour he wanted - he was aiming for red but the black paint is so....mesmerising...... :D


I'd love to know what you think. No, really I would......
