Crafts with Q-tips and lessons from it

My kids take their crafts very serious.  I mean they will use bananas to hold down their artwork and dare anyone to have a snack.

Then we have this Princess.
She is all artist.  Meaning she has a creative side that doesn’t blend well with crazy rules or directions that her teacher may give her regarding lines of symmetry.  She sees what are outside the lines as a pure palette for more color and more creativity.
Artist ChildIt took her a long process for her to create her “snowflake.”  This was one of the objects she came up with – although I liked it – she had directions she had to follow.  Q-tip Sunburst
Sometimes we have to start over many times before we get it right.
It is a process.
It is sometimes overwhelming.
It involves do-overs and crying out for help!

I’m talking about life.
Selah!
Blessings to you!  You are loved!
