A Special Someone

I had a visitor yesterday. She brought with her a plastic milk bottle and asked me to help her make a monster from it. She had so many ideas about how to paint this monster but alas, I have stored my paints at the studio. I found some colourful tape, paper, string and glue and she gave it a bit of consideration and then set about creating her masterpiece.



She has lost a bottom tooth. She’s learning how to read.

After working so hard on her project, we made a tent out of a handmade quilt and we had toast and jam while watching cartoons. If you look closely you’ll see her monster — and notice her new best friend, Pickles, supervising the toast and jam.


It was so nice to see Sohpia again. It made an otherwise dreary Monday very happy.

    1. You are so kind. I was really tired yesterday and when she told me about her idea for an art project I must confess, I was a little wide-eyed and hesitant. However. As you well know — one mustn’t stifle imagination and creativity. When the muse calls, we must listen.
