~I believe the children are our future ~Teach them well and let them lead the way ~Show them all the beauty they possess inside...lalalala~


...sounds familiar? I'm sure you've guessed it right...
it's Miss Whitney Houston's song of course!
Anywayyy...
Most of you know that my family is 'Artist Wannabe'
You've seen my mother's work[here] & also my brother's[here].
Well-well-well...
Now it's time to introduce the next generation,
my young nephews & nieces!
.

Yup~ they all shared their brushes, tubes of paint
and presented me with this LOVELINESS a.k.a the colorful painting
for my birthday back in March this year!
Obviously I was moved to tears...~sob-sob*
(Thank goodness for waterproof mascara!!!)
.

I shall treasure their art (~heART*) forever...
especially those precious moments we spent together~
...these kids, they GROW so FAST I tell ya'
~XOXO*

Your family members are so gifted! The painting looks so Matisse! A handmade gift is so much more precious than a birkin! :)

Jan,
The youngest is now 6 years old

Saving Capulet,
that's so sweet, but my family can be quite...errr dysfunctional! Trust me, I need to pull my hair sometimes~

Thank you all! xo*

Shaddy said...

No wonder you're so...so you! If we could all be who we're meant to be...ahh...life would be so good.

I missed your mother's artwork when it was originally posted on your blog. I'm so glad I got a second chance to see it. It's hilarious that she decorates your father's works of art with her magazine cutouts. Too hilarious!!

Your nieces and nephews are quite the talented little artists! My oldest nephew is too. I will have to post a picture of the drawing he did (unprompted my anyone) for my husband and I that he gave to us at our wedding. It made me cry. He was 6 at the time. I'm so excited to be driving out to TX to see my nephews next week!
