Ice Ornaments
January 8th, 2010

One of my New Years resolutions this year was to get back on track with making art with the Woog. It is freezing here and it snowed so we probably won’t venture out for a few days. Yesterday morning we did a quick project and made ice ornaments. She used a collection of colored beads, paper and glitter while I mixed together some previous work illustrations.

One last piece of art to wrap up the countdown. This has been in my sketchbook for a while and thought it was a perfect piece for this little series.

Tomorrow is THE day!!

The Woog’s allergies finally caught up with her today so she’s been resting all afternoon so I decided to do a quick piece on my own.

Tomorrow: Art for 1 day to go!

Knowing my work, you should have expected an alphabet so that’s what we did today. The Woog wrote her alphabet and I used her letters in this design.

Tomorrow: Art for 2 days to go!

Picked some veggies in our garden today and decided to make a school picture of them all. I took the picture, printed it out and let her draw on that then overlayed her image onto the photograph. She decided to name all the kids (veggies) in her class (totally made up of course):

l to r: Mrs. M., (top row) Walker, Rexie (Principal’s son), Kate, Taylor, Principal, (bottom row) Malone, John, Luke

You can take a look at my quick one here.

Didn’t get a chance to post things yesterday but we did finger print art. This is apparently what we will all look like on the first day of school (art directed completely by the Woog).

Tomorrow: Art for 4 days to go!

We had done a piece together today and while getting the post together I heard her in the Kitchen yell “Daddy, come look at my bus, it’s better than Mommy’s!” So you be the be the judge (I think her’s is better). Her’s is below and ours is here.

7 days to go!

Today we visited my MIL and she gave the Woog a bag a school supplies so the entire way home she drew pictures. Most were portraits and the one she did of her daddy as a duck chicken was hilarious. It’s isn’t school themed but made with brand new school supplies so I guess that counts.

You an see my art for the day here.

We marked another day off our countdown calendar! Yesterday morning we started “training” for getting up early, eating breakfast and getting dressed to make t to school on time. Today was a little rough since since she got to bed later than usual last night. At least Thursdays will be “late start” days so she can sleep an extra hour. She’ll need it with church on Wednesday nights. Check out today’s little art project here.

We’re counting down the days until Kindergarten starts and the Woog is so excited. You can read more from me here, but we’re celebrating each day with art. We haven’t nailed down exactly what we’ll do, but some days we’ll be on our own and others will work on a piece together.

Here’s what she came up with for today’s art. Her at school in her new plaid skirt (her uniform):
