My daughters and I love to gather together to create our own special masterpieces. From paint night right in our very home, to making crafts, and even branching out to attending different classes, we enjoy creating to the fullest.
What makes it so special is that we are doing it together. It’s something we have a passion for, and we’re sharing it with each other. I get such joy in my heart when I see their smiling faces as their designs and creations take life right before their eyes!
Recently, we attended a Caligraphy class together at our local fine art’s center. The girls have always loved pens, markers, etc. They literally write on EVERYTHING! They always have! Honestly, they got that from their mother! When I saw the class advertised, I feared it was too late as they had a list of people already signed up and I was too late to the game. Much to my surprise, they had a few cancelations, and my girls and I were IN! Woo hoo! We went to the class, and although it was watercolor caligraphy, that part I missed in the class description, my girls excelled in this class! I struggled with making my letters look decent, but they were doing an excellent job all the way through the entire class.
At the end of the night, we brought our cards we designed home and showed them to my husband. He always says, “Wow … great job …” even to me, when I know I didn’t do that great. I appreciate his enthusiam, though.
This creative way of writing/painting is something my girls will take with them now in life. They have already taken out their painting kits and decorated cards and letters since the class. And my heart smiles!
