It's not just kids artwork I embroider! This apron was embroidered with a handwritten family recipe passed down through the generations- Grandma's Christmas Cake!
I trace all drawings or handwriting received so it really can be anything special to you on paper that you want to preserve.
Making this sign really brought me back to the reason I started making these in the first place.
Last year, our LCHAD Community lost Braylee. She was only 5 years old and was such a bright and beautiful little girl. For many of us, the loss of Braylee served as a painful reminder of how quickly things can turn for these kids.
Time is never a guarantee and I started this because I wanted pieces of Owen and his little spirit captured on my wall. I often feel like I’m at war with this disorder and am constantly fighting to prevent, avoid or redirect the painful possibilities that come along with LCHAD/TFP. But seeing these precious memories frozen in time soothes that subtle heartache and gives me something to hold on to.
Braylee saw the worst of this disorder and my heart breaks for this family and the loss they have experienced. It’s so unfair and while it’s tricky to face the disorder, I am so thankful for this online community. These moments of challenge are always a reminder that we can’t do this alone. I hope this sign brings a little peace to Braylee’s family and reminds them that her joyful spirit is always with them.
A picture my daughter drew for me when she was like 5 yrs old (now 21). I re-created with Adobe Illustrator many years ago. #adobe
asked for a #tif
of it for their use many years ago. #childsdrawing #lips #age5 #momstuff
Just found this picture my daughter drew for me when she was like 5 yrs old (now 21). I had scanned it and so glad I did. I have one more she drew, and I only have the one I re-created with Adobe Illustrator many years ago. #childsdrawing #lips #age5 #momstuff
Me working away on my laptop, drawing up a commission art agreement. I hope in real life I look as blissed out as Lottie draws me. This month I’ll be putting into motion a new website thanks to someone else’s cleverness and know-how. On that new site I’ll add a How To Commission An Artwork page as I think some people find the idea of commissioning work a bit daunting. I’ll break down (not emotionally...) how the figures come about and all the steps needed to create a bespoke piece of work to fit your life/space/the awkward part of the hallway that seems bare. #commission #childsdrawing #lifewithkid #workingmother #makersgonnamake #gettingstuffdone #edinburghartist
Zamanında aldığım bir sürü ıvır zıvır kıyafeti düzenlemekle uğraşıyorum sabahtan beri. Yani "siyah bir kazağa ihtiyacım var" demeden önce dolaba bir bakmak gerekiyormuş. Bir de arkadaş öyle elbiseler almışım ki 'içindeki çocuğu dinle' önerisi bu kadar mı yanlış anlaşılır! Ya da bir gün olmayı planladığım biri mi vardı acaba? Neyse, sonuçta olmadım işte. Siyah kazak da buldum, sırtım yere gelmez... #nilinresimleri #45months #4yearsolddrawing #kids #draw #childsdrawing #dress
My sister @all_my_crafty_things
sent me a drawing that my little nephew did at school. He said its me inside the tent and Uncle Theo fixing the deck. Maybe my nephew is subtly hinting to my husband that he really should be paying it more attention?! Also love the elephant, although I will be very upset if Batoka ends up on top of my tent😂
I was going to post a quote today but this really is my #MotivationMonday
in one picture. I miss my family SO much and many times I want to just leave and move back to the UK but im so glad they support what we are doing here - even my little nephew apparently! #childsdrawing #missmyfamily #sheisnotlost #explore #workinginthewild
After a well deserved rest, holiday in the sun, lots of family time and memories made... I’m back at it tomorrow with the first task being some hoop art 😍
With both Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day on the horizon these are perfect gifts ideas - changing your child’s sketch into a piece of hoop art.
I will be adding more options for #2019
with both cushions and tote bags available in you don’t want it in a hoop! #watchthisspace #etsy #emsiegdesigns #childsdrawing #minipicasso #hoopart #keepsake #vinyl #embroidery
When your 3 year old starts doing ‘intentional’ abstract art... and it’s actually pretty awesome! 〰️
