After we got here dwelling with Nova 9 months in the past, I put aside a drawer to maintain her toddler artwork in. I knew it might add up quick, however no person warned me simply HOW quick. I framed the primary portray she ever made. I bear in mind how surreal it felt. Quick ahead and in what felt like no time in any respect, the drawer was bursting … actually. I couldn’t shut it. I’m so blissful she’s making artwork nearly on daily basis, and it’s an enormous precedence for us to maintain making extra. So I noticed it was time to begin making picture books as a result of I can’t maintain all of the artwork in that drawer without end. Plus, this format makes it simpler to really take a look at and luxuriate in!
When you’ve got a baby who’s making extra artwork than you’ll be able to sustain with, I extremely suggest making one in every of these books! This would be the first of a collection for us. As soon as the drawer fills up once more, I’ll print one other e-book.

This e-book begins with Nova’s very first portray—some ornaments we painted at Christmas. I can’t imagine that solely 9 months in the past she might barely maintain a marker or a paintbrush. You must see her go now!
I combined images of Nova’s artwork with images of her making artwork. I plan to proceed doing this.
Right here’s just a few of Nova’s tasks from her college. I solely maintain the most effective of the most effective relating to college artwork since a variety of them are simply coloring sheets or glue stick tasks.

Our portray picnics. The day I despatched these pictures to my mother she wrote me again and mentioned that she learn that Georgia O’Keeffe’s earliest childhood reminiscences had been portray on a picnic blanket in her entrance yard when she was 3 years outdated. Made me cry!
