Inspired by my own children's imaginations, I came up with a way to match their colourful ideas and my love of birthday parties. Creating personalized invitations and birthday themes, we always end up with some great memories and happy children!
I like to pick up a brush, dab it in paint and paint on anything in site from a clean canvas, an old canvas, watercolour paper, scrap wood, walls, closet doors, clothing, etc. Think I've passed the trait down to my kids.
Sometimes I find things that I love when I am out shopping and other times I have a picture in my head and that's all I'm going to settle for. Most of the time I can make it and it turns out exactly what I picture in my head. It's definitely a trait that I inherited from my parents and I think I've passed it down to my kids
I love birthday parties. I love to see the kids play and have fun with their friends. Our house ends up being a big mess before, during and after the event but the kids have a great time and it's all worth it.
