Children's Art Work

I've been excitedly waiting for the day
when my kids could draw...
like actually sit down and create a drawing
completely on their own.
I just love the way their little minds see things 
and then put that on paper.

I'm always looking for ways to display their work creatively 
rather than just sticking it to the refrigerator
(though there's something about creating a piece
and then walking over to the refrigerator and 
proudly displaying it for all to see...
which my girls do every time...
I love it.).

After my daughter's birthday,
we were trying to think of a creative way to 
send out thanks to those who
had attended her birthday party and given gifts.

So, we combined the two and came up with 
these custom little thank you cards
(which my daughter also blogged about today...
sometimes this just happens when there's creativity
spilling over!
And yes, I said my daughter...
who is four...
what can I say?
She was born to blog!).

I love the way they turned out!
She drew a self-portrait of herself,
and then I added the scene around her.
It was a fun little afternoon project for the two of us,
and of course,
all the Grandpa's and Grandma's and Aunts/Uncles 
loved getting a little piece of artwork to display...
on their refrigerators.
