All this week my girls and I have been absorbing Regina's wonderful e-course, The Art of Giving. The posts are thoughtful, the message important, and the homework is pretty fun. Regina has some great videos (with nice music!) that show her creative process and they're really fun and magical to watch.
I definitely need to do this more often, and learn how to let go, let loose, be free with the paints and play. Instead of worrying about mess, waste (that's a biggie for me), or precision. My girls are really good at that part, I'm terrible at it. Although it helps that I had all of this stuff on hand already - some materials are at least a decade old.
I hope to show some finished pages and some of my girls' creations, too, along the way.
