my mini.me...

 Well go figure... this daughter of mine seems addicted to painting!
It's not even like I tried to 'force' her to enjoy the arts... but ever since her first introduction to painting she just begs.whines.squeals to use it daily!

This is one of those 'supervised mess' moments... giving her the freedom to slop.slap.slip the paints around... even over her cute toes and fingers.

I really need to take the time to make some non-toxic homemade paints... for how often she wants to be coated in the stuff!

Yes, it's honestly like looking at a mini-me here... even sticking the tongue out to paint!
She also gets into a 'trance-like' mood when she's fully focused on her brushstrokes... quite something to behold.
I just had to make a video here... she's too beautiful sometimes.

Just so you don't think she's this 'calm' all the time, I'll have you know that shortly after this video Azi jumped up, tore off the paint shirt and ran around in wild circles barking because she suddenly wanted to "dance like a dog".
True story.

What do your kids love doing the most?

Colourful fingers mama,
Mel ;o)


  1. Recipes, please! Do you have recipes for non-toxic paints? Any chance such paints might also be somewhat washable?

  2. Non-toxic paint recipe: http://easiepeasie.blogspot.ca/2010/07/homemade-finger-paints.html .  My only tip is that you don't cook them too long or you will end up with finger paint get :)

  3.  Hey there.. Wilson has made these - I hope to soon.. http://easiepeasie.blogspot.ca/2010/07/homemade-finger-paints.html#.
