Collaborative Works

Art and design are family pastimes in our house. The wee girl can't escape being involved.

Above left - The man of the house's portrait of the wee artist as a 2-year-old (with handprints by the 2-year-old artist).

Above right - an Ikea lamp and a string balloon (that the wee one made last November) hastily put together yesterday in a collaborative mother-daughter (ahem) interior design exercise.

The initial plan for the string balloon was to turn it into a bowl for Xmas decorations, sweets or something. But it turned out that we were NOT allowed to cut it up, so we've had a "decoration" kicking about the house since then. For some reason, she agreed to the lamp idea yesterday.
Her new lamp isn't exactly pretty, but at least we're no longer tripping over the "decoration" on the loungeroom floor.

Aaaaaaaaaak! Have just noticed in your sidebar the subversive stitcher is worth a bazillion pounds! I feel a little sick I sent mine to the Charity shop a few years ago.

I love the collaborative painting. It's such a clever approach. I really like the way the Mr thinks about art.

Fantastic!!! Great portrait, and love the lampshade! It looks very chic!

Nikki I wondered if you run any bag-making courses in Melbourne? Or could point me in the right direction?

Warm regards!!! Vikki :-)
