Daddy Card and not a bit of pink ....

Noli comes from a creative family -- from art to needlework, china painting to ceramics, gardening to cooking, photography to woodworking, it seems that through the generations we have done it all. Her daddy is musical, her mommy is artistic. We are raising her to be creative on her own, to color outside the lines, to make your own instead of buying. She's only six, but she's got these lessons down!




So, in the spirit of handmade, she has drawn a sweet card for her daddy. Mommy helped her take a store-bought card and remove the front design. (When someone sends the dreaded store-bought card, Mommy saves it to use in Noli's craft projects.)




Noli took a rectangle of those stick-on rubbery kid craft things and sticks it on, covering where the original picture had been. She cuts out some designs and makes her picture, filling in the details with a pen.




She writes on the front, then thinks a bit and writes her message on the inside. Oops! a mistake! She changes her mind, and in typical kid fashion, scratches it out. Writes the rest. Uses plenty of hearts. Her card is full of puppies and kitties -- which are foremost on her mind right now.

She's very proud of the way she is making her small letter "a" now -- all curly.  
"No, it's not cursive, silly" she says to me, "it's curly."




I think Daddy will really love his Noli card.
