Artful Friday – Valentines Day

February 12, 2010 | Comment6 comments - join the party! |

Today is a busy day. I have made a shop update with my fat bunnies and The Olympic torch will be passing by my street right onto Granville Island, hoping to get a good spot for that.

Yesterday my art students and I made Valentines. I don’t usually do holiday craft type art with my students as they get to do that at school. However, every now and then I will do one on multiple request by the students.

We talked about Valentines and where the idea came from. The guesses were adorable. I love working with kids, their minds are the most fantastic place to be.

Question of the day: What do you hope to receive for Valentines Day?

Most common was chocolate, a heart shape chocolate, and one little girl said a puppy!

Materials used: paper color of their choice, glue, scissors, sticker paper,finger paint, chalk pastels, ribbon, twine, and paper doilies (of coarse) I brought from home.

I hope you have a wonderful Friday. Check out my bunnies, they would make a great Easter treat for someone, or look just just sitting on your bed. he he

I always love what you do!

I would love a nice long uninterrupted night on Val's day, of course that would be a big wishful thinking with baby G around 🙂
