CRAFTY SATURDAY

I have so many ideas to write about and so little time. Being a mum is a very hard work. I wasn’t sure where to start, so I decided to write about yesterday. And I’ve chosen it because it’s the end of a very busy week for me. Very creative week.
I had a difficult cake to make, so most of my spare time I’ve spent preparing decorations for it. As a result of that I didn’t have time for an art day with my boys.
Today finally all my work was done, cakes finished, knitting casted off, and I’ve had lots of time for my two munchkins. It was Ben’s time to choose what will we do , and luckily he picked painting. This is what I like the most – colorfull mess.
What Ben enjoys doing with paints is just mixing them. His picture ended up all mixed up.

Oliwer just used images that he see every day. I showed him how to draw smaller parts with smaller paintbrush, and to use less water if he wants something to stick out. He tried to paint things behind other objects, his painting is not as bad as he says. On his picture there’s a tree and a gate on the front, two buildings behind them, and the Sun shining at the back, away from everything. His sky is grey, not blue – that’s very british, isn’t it?

And there’s my picture. Just a sunset at the seaside. Something simple and nice.

Our pictures aren’t masterpieces, but we had a great laugh creating them. We were helping each other, talking, and working together. In this busy life moments like this are treasures. I want my children to have these memories, to look back on one day.

Now I can start making a bookfold for my friend.

Have a great Sunday!

Creative family.

What is Deep House Creations? It’s my personal family project to show my children how to be creative and artistic even if you’re not really talented in arts.

Why? Many years ago, when I were about fifteen years old I’ve read my school leaving report, where my form teacher has put – no special talents in any subject. And I remember being very upset about it. I couldn’t dance and sing like some of my friends, and I wasn’t to good in drawing. But I were writing great stories and poems, and loved crafting things, even if I weren’t the best in it.

Years went by, and now I know how wrong this teacher was. My drawing skills got much better, and I discovered something I fell in love with – cake decorating. But also knitting – that’s something I do to relax. Recently I started bookfolding, and making sweet bouquets. There’s so many things I can do, I just needed someone to show me how. Back then, when O wss fifteen hardly anybody had internet. Now, if I want to learn something new, I have easy acces to all tutorials in the world. 

So when my son came back from school one day and said he doesn’t like Art because he’s not good in it, I just asked – would you like to have some fun once or twice a week drawing with me? –

This is why I want to write this blog – to show people that you don’t have to be born with “crafty” written before your name. If you enjoy it – do it!
